As we age, lines and wrinkles appear on the forehead, around the eyes and around the mouth These lines occur from muscles that contract to form different facial expressions. This gives us an aged and tired look. Here at Sculpted, anti-wrinkle injections are used to temporarily relax these wrinkle-causing muscles, giving a refreshed appearance. We use these in combination with other treatments for skin tone, texture and quality improvement. How is the procedure performed? These are performed by well-trained staff at the Sculpted Clinic with Dr Sawhney’s supervision. An initial consultation with Dr Sawhney is mandatory for him to assess your needs and desired aesthetic results. Follow-up consults then allow him to fine tune regular maintenance treatments to optimise your results and ensure the high standard of care he has set in his clinic is delivered to each patient. Our aim is to attempt to arrest and treat ageing processes while giving you a natural looking rejuvenation. The procedure consists of multiple small injections of the muscle relaxant in the targeted areas. Results may be seen as early as 1-2 days; however, it takes 10-14 days for the full results to be visible. Results typically last for 3-4 months and further treatments will be required to maintain results. Are there any side effects from anti-wrinkle injections? Side effects are rare, generally temporary and limited to the injection sites. Possible side effects include pain, burning or stinging sensation, bruising, swelling, redness, itching, headaches, nausea and flu-like symptoms. If these occur, they tend to resolve in the first week after the injections. Muscle relaxant / anti-wrinkle injections can also be used for: Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) Facial muscle spasms (e.g. blepharospasms) Migraines To schedule a consultation, contact our friendly team today.
