How do anti-wrinkle injectables work?
Anti wrinkle injectables are a popular, non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and the thick bands in the neck. The product blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. The dose recommended will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your lines, which will be discussed in detail during your consultation. The effect can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeated treatments, the effect tends to last longer. The average female usually has 20-30 units for her frown lines, 12-30 units for her crows feet and 6-15 units for her forehead lines. Men tend to require larger doses due to heavier muscle mass. The doctor at Parkhill Medical Centre will assess you during the consultation and work with your preferences and budget to determine the exact dose that suits you best before commencing treatment.
