FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS WORK?
Anti-wrinkle injections are composed of a natural, purified protein. When injected into specific facial muscles, the muscles causing wrinkles are relaxed, reducing dynamic lines and creating a younger, softer and more natural-looking appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections inhibit the transmission of neurotransmitters from the nerve to the muscle and stop the muscle from contracting and forming wrinkles. They also stop the constant compression of your skin, preventing the permanent ‘etching’ of wrinkles in the areas treated.

HOW ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS ADMINISTERED INTO THE SKIN?
After the consultation process and once your needs and expectations have been determined, an ice pack is applied to the treatment area to help to reduce the risk of bruising, also numbing your skin to some extent. The area to be treated is cleaned with an alcohol wipe and the actual anti-wrinkle injection procedure involves a small amount of the product being administered into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Normally, the appointment time for anti-wrinkle injections is 20 minutes. This involves a consultation and evaluation of your needs, and the actual procedure only takes 2-5 minutes, depending on the amount of anti-wrinkle injections required and the areas being treated.
WILL I FEEL ANY PAIN?
The anti-wrinkle injections may sting for a few seconds, but no anesthetic is required. You will be given an ice pack before your procedure to reduce the discomfort. There may be some swelling and redness at the site of the injections, which tends to resolve within a few minutes and you can resume normal activities afterwards. It is recommended that you do not rub the injected area harshly, and avoid strenuous exercises for 48 hrs post procedure.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I NOTICE THE RESULTS?
After your anti-wrinkle injections have been completed, it takes 2 to 3 days for the treatment to begin taking effect, and about 5 to 8 days to see the full results.
HOW LONG DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS LAST?
Anti-wrinkle injections can last for up to 16 weeks, so for optimal, long term results we recommend that you repeat the procedure no later than every 4 months.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS AND DERMAL FILLERS?
Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles in your face, softening the look of your face, whereas dermal fillers are used to plump your skin and fill in deep wrinkles and lines, adding volume to your face.

At My Cosmetic Clinic, our anti-wrinkle injection treatments commence from $169.00 for 50 units, which in most cases is sufficient to treat 1 major area. Please add $49 per each minor area thereafter.
