Anti-Aging injections, commonly known as Botox or Anti-Wrinkle Injections, are the most common non-surgical treatment performed worldwide. Genetics, the natural aging process, coupled with sun exposure, the expressions we make, and daily stresses can cause us to develop wrinkles. These injectables help patients to rejuvenate their appearance by treating deep wrinkles that appear on the forehead, around the eyes, and other areas on the face.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat many different areas & cases such as the below:
Patients generally combine anti-wrinkle injections with hyaluronic acid based fillers for a comprehensive approach to overall anti-aging and rejuvenation of the face.
Currently, there are 3 different types/brands of anti-wrinkle injections on the market: Botox, Dysport & Xeomin. The main difference varies in their formulation; however, all three products are FDA approved and have been used safely and effectively for many years.
We at Aesthetics believe in the saying “less is more”. Anti-wrinkle injections with our expert plastic surgeon Dr. Jaffer Khan will leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated instead of frozen.
You can expect smooth skin & softer expressions, with dynamic wrinkles greatly reduced.
Anti-wrinkle injections have been around for over 40 years and are used on over 10 million people worldwide.
For patients new to the procedure, you will require a short consultation with Dr. Khan. We apply EMLA topical numbing cream before your treatment to ensure it is as comfortable as possible. Anti-wrinkle injections are injected with a very fine needle into the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in your areas of concern. This makes it difficult for muscle activity to occure, thereby reducing creases and wrinkles in the skin.
There is no downtime with anti-wrinkle injections & you are free to resume daily activities as normal. We recommend not going to the gym or any sports activities until after 24 hours post your treatment.
Every individual is unique, but ideally a top up every 4 months tend to show the best results.
Results are generally seen after 3 days and are further enhanced over 10 days.
Remember: Less is more when it comes to such treatments! You can always touch up results during a follow up. This will ensure a natural and unfrozen look.
