Antiwrinkle treatment is the treatment of facial muscles to reduce their movement, this reduction in movement then causes a relaxation in the overlying skin, resulting in the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Deep lines present at rest will soften but may require repeated treatment to achieve the desired outcome.
For treatments like hand and arm pit sweating results last longer most patients fins these treatments can remain effective for up to 6 months.
Multiple very small injections which are relatively painless into the muscles to be treated. Small bumps and raised dots on the skin for 1-2 hours.
Effects may begin as early as day 6 but the full settled result wont be fully realised until 14 days post treatment at which point we can tweak the additional area to be treated.
Medically Antiwrinkle treatment will last 12 weeks. However with repeated treatments we will get weakening of the muscles causing lines and wrinkles leading to greater periods of time with no lines at rest. Therefore in order to stay looking natural it is advisable to avoid over treatment.
