Many people have considered anti-wrinkle injections but are often worried about the process and the cost. Below we give you the answers to some of these commonly asked questions. Let’s get started.
How does the treatment work?
Your brain sends signals to all your muscles including facial which causes movement and in turn, wrinkles. A muscle relaxant is used to temporarily block the signals which results in much less movement and/or removal or reduction of existing wrinkles.
How is the anti-wrinkle product sold?
It is sold in units. Depending on the wrinkles, it is determined via consultation the number of units you require. It also depends on the strength of the muscle at the time of treatment and the existing depth of the wrinkles. You can find out more in your consultation.
Many providers have detail regarding the costs of anti-wrinkle injections on their websites.
Is there anything else that can help?
Yes, there is. There are dermal fillers like Juvederm and others which can be used to fill wrinkles rather than relax them. These are made from Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance.
How do I know if I need a filler or a relaxant?
As a general rule, anything above the nose is treated using anti-wrinkle injections and anything below the nose, is treated using fillers.
