At Unveil, our philosophy is centred on the enhancement of your natural features, and we strive to produce results that are both subtle and impactful. Our anti-wrinkle injections serve to mitigate and deter the appearance of wrinkles caused by the natural ageing process, as well other factors such as sun exposure, dehydration, and genetics, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated look. These injections function by inducing relaxation in targeted muscles, thereby improving the appearance of fine lines and mitigating the formation of deeper wrinkles.
Popular areas treated are:
- Forehead Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
- Masseters (jaw muscles)
- Nefertiti Neck lift
- Lines on top and sides of the nasal bridge
- Top Lip
- Nasolabial Folds (from the edges of the nose to the outer corner of the mouth)
- Marionette Lines (from the corner of the mouth down to the jaw)
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are performed by our experienced Medical Team overseen by renowned Plastic Surgeon Dr Rodrigo Teixeira
How do Anti-Wrinkle treatments work?
Anti-wrinkle injections is a non-surgical procedure where tiny injections are administered in specific muscles to induce relaxation which blocks signals from nerves and prevents skin from contracting and creating wrinkles. The procedure is usually quick, typically requiring only 10 to 15 minutes. You will start to see the effect of anti-wrinkle injections take place around 5-14 days post treatment, with optimum results typically taking place around the 3-4 week mark.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, Anti-Wrinkles are administered every 3-4 months depending on the client, lifestyle factors, skincare used and the area being treated.
We always book a 2 week follow up appointment. During this appointment we will take more photos and we will discuss the results with you.
Does the treatment hurt?
While there may be some initial discomfort, the treatment itself is generally pain-free. Though it’s possible to feel a sharp sting at the injection site, this sensation is typically brief and minor.
During your consultation, we will provide you with detailed instructions on aftercare, and give you a sheet to refer to later.
After the treatment you may experience:
- Localised pain in the injection site
- Temporary skin reddening and discolouration
- Adjacent muscle compensation
Following anti-wrinkle treatment, it is important to refrain from:
- Massaging the injected area
- Taking blood-thinning anti-inflammatory medications.
- Physical activity, alcohol, and caffeine for 24 hours following treatment.
- Exposure to extreme heat should also be avoided for two weeks
- Laser, IPL, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, facials, and facial waxing for 2 weeks after treatment
- Lying down for four hours after treatment
At Unveil, our expert medical practitioners offer thorough consultations that involve a comprehensive skin analysis.
