Wrinkle Relaxers – Dr Peter Laniewski

What are anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular cosmetic treatment used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving the face a smoother and more youthful appearance. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires no downtime, making it a convenient option for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing surgery.

Common target areas include crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyes, and worry lines across the forehead. Lines running from the mouth to the chin, called marionette lines, can also be effectively treated. Since each patient may have different areas of concern, a customised treatment plan will be required to give you the results you desire.

How they work

An anti-wrinkle injection treatment involves injecting a neurotoxin into the muscles to temporarily relax them. By relaxing certain facial muscles, the treatment reduces the appearance of lines in the skin caused by frequent expressions. This smoothes the appearance of existing wrinkles and inhibits the formation of new wrinkles over time, leaving the patient with smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

The injections are typically made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin, which blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. This prevents the muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles and lines to form on the skin’s surface. During the treatment, your practitioner will inject a precise amount of filler into targeted areas of your face, just below the skin. This process is not generally painful, as we will apply a topical anaesthetic to ensure maximum comfort. The injections begin to work immediately by reducing nerve stimulation, with ongoing improvements over the following days and weeks.

By tailoring the treatment to you and your specific needs, we can give you the youthful appearance you desire whilst still maintaining your natural look. The effects of the injections typically last for three to six months, and patients may opt to have follow-up treatments to maintain their results.

Anti Wrinkle Injections Before and After

Good candidates

Since anti-wrinkle injections are minimally invasive, they are suitable for a wide range of people and can benefit both men and women. Although the treatment can be ideal for people over the age of 40 who are concerned about visible lines and wrinkles, it can also benefit younger adults. This is because the treatment can be used as a preventative, inhibiting the formation of new wrinkles with age. Additionally, anti-wrinkle injections can also treat other issues, such as headaches.

However, the treatment may not be suitable for everyone, and it’s important to discuss your needs with Dr Laniewski before going ahead. For example, the treatment is generally not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. Also, people who have deep wrinkles, significant skin laxity, or are looking for a more significant change in their appearance may be better suited for other cosmetic procedures. If you are wondering whether anti-wrinkle injections are right for you, book a consultation to discuss your options.

Cost of anti wrinkle injections

The decision to get anti-wrinkle injections is highly personal, and each procedure will vary based on the patient’s treatment areas, skin condition, and desired outcomes. For this reason, costs can vary. At your consultation, Dr Laniewski will discuss these factors with you in order to develop a treatment plan that works for you and your skin. We can then provide a cost estimate based on your particular needs and circumstances.

Anti-wrinkle injections aftercare

After treatment with anti-wrinkle injections, you may experience some mild swelling, redness or itching. These symptoms should last for a day or two only. To get the best results and prevent potential side effects, you will need to put some aftercare practices in place as you resume your normal daily routine. You should follow the personalised instructions given to you by Dr Laniewski. As a guide, aftercare steps typically include to:

  • Avoid rubbing, itching or applying pressure to the treated area
  • Avoid excessive exercise and sun exposure
  • Avoid blood thinning medications
  • Keep the treated area clean as advised
  • Sleep with your head slightly elevated on an extra pillow

Frequently asked questions

Do anti-wrinkle injections target the muscles?

Yes, wrinkle relaxers work by blocking the signals within the targeted muscles, preventing them from frequently contracting and causing the skin above the muscles to crease. Relaxing the muscles in the treated area can also prevent more lines from developing in the future.

Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?

The needles used for anti-wrinkle injections are thin and are only placed in the treatment area for a few seconds at a time. You can expect to feel a slight prickling sensation that should subside quite fast. To support your level of comfort throughout the treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied at the beginning of your appointment.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

The longevity of your results will depend on how quickly your body metabolises the product. On average, wrinkle relaxers last for about three to eight months before the patient requires maintenance treatments.

How long does the wrinkle removal treatment take?

Treatment time will depend on the needs of each individual patient. Typically, treatments with anti-wrinkle injections take no longer than 30 minutes.

Can anti-wrinkle injections remove lip wrinkles?

Wrinkle relaxers can be placed around the mouth to soften fine lines, including marionette lines along the mouth. For the best, most youthful results, you may benefit from lip fillers, in addition to wrinkle relaxers, to enhance the volume of the lips and improve their shape.
