You don’t have to live with ageing lines, wrinkles, or frown lines. Repeated muscle movements and contractions often lead to folds in the skin – when you smile, frown, squint, and laugh. Some are more prominent than others. Anti-wrinkle injections can help turn back the clock.
But the truth is, these “wrinkle” or “frown” lines aren’t always related to age, they can also occur in younger adults. Seeking treatment early on will help diminish these lines and restore your confidence as well as your youthful appearance.
What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
As explained above, these fine lines on your face are commonly caused by repeated muscle contraction, and can appear between your eyebrows, on your forehead, around your eyes, nose, jaw, lips, and neck. An anti-wrinkle injection is essentially a muscle relaxant that blocks muscle receptors and reduce their ability to contract. Your facial muscles become more relaxed and results in smoothening of frown lines.
At Aesthetics Medical Group, Dr Lauren Lee will gently administer your anti-wrinkle injections, reducing those frown lines while maintaining a natural-looking face.
Anti-wrinkle injections are oftentimes accompanied by dermal fillers for an improved outcome.
How Long Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Last?
Most patients will start seeing improvements (a reduction) in their frown lines between 5 to 7 days after treatment and may last up to 4 months, although it varies from patient to patient. Many choose to “top-up” when the effects begin to wear off, and repeated treatments are perfectly safe.
Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Hurt?
The treatment is delivered using a very fine needle and only the tip of the needle penetrates the skin. Most patients describe the sensation as a light pin prick with minimal discomfort.
However, the key to a relatively painless treatment is the injector – at Aesthetics Medical Group, Dr Lauren Lee’s gentle touch and professional approach to anti-wrinkle injections is a cut above all others so you can rest assured your treatment will be as pleasant as possible.
What Should I Expect During a Consultation?
Your anti-wrinkle injection consultation will begin with a quick interview to determine if the treatment is right for you. If it’s safe to proceed, Dr Lauren Lee will deliver your treatment. Sessions usually take up to 30 minutes, depending on the desired results. After a week, Dr Lauren Lee will organise a follow-up examination.
