How does it work?
Frequently Asked Questions
What is involved?
The treatment is simple and highly effective. Using a very fine needle a small amount of Type D or Type B muscle relaxant is injected into the wrinkle causing muscle. Discomfort is minimal, however, topical anesthetic cream is available for those who prefer and ice is used to further minimize discomfort. There is no down time and you can return to normal activities immediately. It takes 3-4 days for the treatment to begin to take effect and up to 10 days to see the full effect.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
The treatment lasts approximately 4 months with a gradual wearing off as expressions and lines return to their original appearance. You can return for further treatment when you feel you need to be retreated to maintain your smoother look.
Are there any side effects with anti-wrinkle injections?
At DRV Skin our anti-wrinkle injection treatments are always performed by a medical doctor. The doctor will consult with you before the treatment and discuss your medical history to ensure this will be a safe and effective treatment for you. Possible temporary side effects are stinging, bruising or redness at the injection site, headaches, sinus inflammation and nausea. Very rarely partial eyelid or eyebrow droop or double vision can occur. Our doctor will discuss all possible side effects with your before treatment.
Hear from our clients
My aim was not to look like I was over done. I absolutely love the subtle and great differences that were made by Dr Gan, without creating a look that was obvious that I had cosmetic injections.
I got so used to having a red face, that when I finally got treatment I wish I had asked about treatment options before. It has made such a profound difference, and I love that I don't have to try to hide it anymore with makeup.
The laser treatments I have had, as well as the skin treatments, has made such a difference that everyone notices. I initially was sceptical as I did not see a major difference straight away, but over that time and the plan created for me, I can now see the outcomes and I love it.
I often covered up my face with makeup as a result of having acne and the scars it left. My skin is so much better after having treatment and using the right skin care which admittedly I had neglected for many years.
