Anti-wrinkle Injections

for a smoother for a younger for a fresher you.

Creating a smoother, refreshed and youthful appearance by selectively relaxing the facial muscles.

Look Refreshed

By reducing the appearance of static lines, anti-wrinkle treatment has the benefit of creating a more serene, well-rested appearance. After treatment with us you won’t look frozen, many patients describe it simply as looking “fresher”.

Treat & Prevent

Anti-wrinkle injections are able to soften lines that already exist as well as halting the deepening of lines in the early ageing process.

Enhance your features

Anti-wrinkle injections when performed correctly can be used for several beautifying tweakments. These include the “lip flip”, the brow lift, slight upturning of the corners of the mouth, and slimming of the facial contour.

Quick treatment

The initial treatment is more in depth as we take the time to get to know you, your anatomy, concerns and goals. However, your standard maintenance treatment usually takes only 15 minutes.

No downtime

Patients are able to go about their day as normal after receiving anti-wrinkle injections.

Affordable

Quality work comes at a price, however not every treatment breaks the bank. Anti-wrinkle injections at LookFresh are a fairly accessible ongoing intervention for many people.

How anti-wrinkle injections work

Anti-wrinkle Injections (also referred to as Wrinkle Relaxers) involve the use of a natural, purified protein that has been diluted many times and works by blocking the chemical signal that the brain sends to the muscle telling it to contract.

When injected into the targeted areas in small doses, the purified protein relaxes the muscle, softening the visible lines on the face. The treatment only affects the movement of muscles beneath where it is injected. Surrounding muscles of the face will continue to move as normal.

After around 3-4 months (depending on the individual), the body will have broken down the protein, at which time patients are ready for their maintenance treatment.

Anti-wrinkle injection treatment is effective, relatively affordable and convenient, with no downtime. However, there are some side effects associated with poorly performed procedures so it is important to choose an experienced practitioner.

Does it hurt?

The sensation is similar to a needle prick and discomfort lasts only a few seconds. Pain tolerance varies from person to person, but the majority of our patients find this treatment very tolerable.

What should I expect?

Anti-wrinkle injections are administered by a fine needle to the muscle. You might experience some slight redness or swelling immediately afterwards but this will fade within a few minutes. Less common is mild bruising, which can be covered with make-up.

You start to see results within a few days, it can take 10-14 days to see the full effect.

What is a good age to start?

The best age to start anti-wrinkle injections depends on you and your goals. As a preventative anti-aging measure, many people start in their 20s and 30s. Some young patients make use of beautifying applications such as the lip flip, and start anti-aging treatment later. We can advise you based on what you wish to achieve in a consultation.

What preparation and aftercare do I need?

Avoid alcoholic beverages for 24 hours prior to procedure as this can increase the risk for bleeding and bruising at the treated site(s). Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or the use of hair removal creams in the area(s) to be treated.

After treatment, avoid rubbing or massaging injected area for at least 4 hours. Avoid tight-fitting headgear and strenuous workouts for the first 24 hours.
