Anti-wrinkle injections are the non-surgical way to smooth wrinkles and fill lines instantly. At DRV Skin our anti-wrinkle injections are ONLY performed by a Doctor! Rest assured Dr Param has an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy and prides himself with accurate placement to obtain natural results. Anti-wrinkle injections can also help prevent and reduce the formation of wrinkles caused by the repetitive contraction of the underlying muscles of expression.
How does it work?
At DRV Skin we use muscle relaxants Type D and Type B for natural-looking and long-lasting results (current Government regulations prevent us from naming the well know products in promotion or advertising). Our specially trained doctor injects a small amount of relaxant into the targeted facial area which relaxes the specific facial muscles that cause the wrinkle. Once the muscle is relaxed you can no longer contract it, the lines become softened and new ones are prevented from forming. It is ideal for, but not limited to, the treatment of frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and mouth lines.
Injectable muscle relaxants can also be used for the correction of:
- Gummy smile (showing excessive amount of upper gum when smiling)
- Canine smile (a ‘snarling’ type of smile)
- Turned down corners of the mouth
- Improving the jaw-line without surgery, your jaw-line can be lifted and defined for a fresher looking appearance
- Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, of underarms, feet and hands
- Prevention of teeth grinding, known as bruxism
- Talk to our doctor if you’d like to know more about how we can treat these conditions.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
