Wrinkle Treatment Sydney

Wrinkle treatment is administered by a few tiny injections under the skin.

Wrinkle treatment works by relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Wrinkle treatment can continue to prevent and reduce facial lines and wrinkles for three to four months but sometimes up to six months or longer. Following treatment, the results are not immediately apparent. It usually takes two days for the wrinkle relaxers to work, usually showing noticeable results in 10-14 days.

Serious side effects of cosmetic wrinkle treatment is rare, but can occur. Some side effects can often be prevented by ensuring your suitability for treatment beforehand and following some aftercare instructions.

Common side effects are restricted to minor and temporary redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site. Rarely, wrinkle treatment may migrate into the upper eyelid, causing the eyelid to droop (ptosis). These effects are temporary, lasting one to two weeks and will occur if the injections are inappropriately placed. Recovery is spontaneous.

What Does Wrinkle Treatment Do?

Wrinkle treatment is commonly used to treat the crow’s feet around the eyes, the central frown line between the eyebrows (glabella lines) and the worry lines across the forehead. Wrinkle treatment represents the treatment of choice for these areas.

Wrinkle treatment has recently been shown to be effective in reducing the occurrence of migraine and tension headaches.

Prior to having wrinkle treatment in Sydney, patients should avoid taking certain medications or supplements that may thin the blood. This helps to avoid unwanted bruising following the injections.

Wrinkle treatment should be avoided for patients who are pregnant and breastfeeding.

There is some truth that wrinkle treatment can be used to prevent the occurrence of new lines and wrinkles. Wrinkle treatment relaxes the wrinkle causing muscles; it prevents the recurrence skin creasing by these muscles, therefore, prevents the occurrence of new lines and wrinkles.

It is important for your practitioner to understand the anatomy of the facial muscles. As a plastic surgeon, Dr Flood has performed detailed dissections on the face to know exactly where the muscles are located, as well as their function. Understanding the true function helps to avoid compensatory overactivity of other muscles that have not undergone wrinkle treatment injection. The aim of treatment is to reduce wrinkles on the face and provide a very subtle change in appearance.

It is important to stress that, at times, patients will still have persistent crease lines despite the wrinkle treatment working effectively. In such cases, patients may request a dermal filler to try and correct this problem.

Wrinkle treatment, generally speaking, will be priced by how many “units” of treatment are used.
