Wrinkle Relaxation Injections

Wrinkle relaxation injections, otherwise known colloquially as, ‘Botox™’, has been the most widely delivered cosmetic treatment for the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles for more than a decade. It generally tends to be part of the majority of anti-ageing treatment plans and produces very good results. It can also be used as part of a wrinkle prevention approach in younger clients. It helps with the reduction of lines particularly around the forehead, corner of the eyes and top of the nose. It is very quick to administer with effects noticed almost immediately and lasts around 3 to 4 months initially. Gradually with repeated treatments effects last a little bit longer.

How does it work?

Wrinkle relaxation injections contain a neurotoxin that is harvested from Botulinum Toxin – a type of bacteria. This neurotoxin is injected into specific muscles of the face and subsequently blocks the effects of acetylcholine – a chemical that triggers the contraction of human muscle. In essence this results in a temporary paralysis of certain facial muscles, specifically muscles of the forehead and around the eyes.

What is it used to treat?

Wrinkle relaxation injections are used to treat frown lines and wrinkles of the upper face. As a result of temporary paralysis of the muscles of the forehead there is a general relaxation of the skin around the forehead and eyes resulting in less prominent frown lines. However, it is very important to understand that wrinkle relaxation injections serve as a treatment for dynamic lines – lines resulting from facial expressions such as frowning, raising your eyebrows and crow’s feet associated with smiling. They will produce only a partial improvement in static lines – fine lines and rhytides (deeper wrinkles) that are present and visible when the face is at rest and are the result of ageing and sun damage.

Rejuvence Philosophy

At Rejuvence we have a passion for anti-ageing science and aesthetic medicine. We believe our role is to advise our clients with regards to the most effective treatment choices that will most closely fulfil their expectations and address their concerns. We are here for the long run and not a short fix. Wrinkle relaxation injections are a great starting point in any anti ageing treatment plan. In reduced doses they are also great for aiding wrinkle prevention in younger clients. However, in combination with other treatments wrinkle relaxation injections can be of greater benefit and provide even better results. Contrary to popular belief, treatment with neurotoxin does not constitute anti wrinkle injections.

Wrinkle relaxation injections have been around for a long time and have been the subject of many studies. Landmark studies identified significant improvements in facial wrinkles amongst patients treated with botulinum toxin neurotoxin when compared to placebo. Response rates to neurotoxin have been shown to be between 70% to 80% of patients.

During your initial consultation we will listen carefully to your concerns and expectations of treatment with wrinkle relaxation injections. We will advise you regarding what we feel you maybe able to achieve with this treatment and just as important, what we feel maybe unrealistic. The treatment itself involves carefully measured micro injections of neurotoxin into specific landmarks of the upper face targeting specific facial muscles. We can also treat bands in the neck referred to as platysmal bands.

We always aim to minimise side effects as much as possible. We are careful to ensure we only treat clients we believe will benefit from this treatment. Those we advise not to have wrinkle relaxation injections include clients suffering with active skin infections of the face, have an allergy to neurotoxin, have neuromuscular disorders, recent laser therapy, are pregnant or breast feeding, and have had poor response to this treatment in the past. Side effects during and immediately after the procedure include bruising and redness at injection sites, swelling around injection sites, and headaches. These side effects improve with repeated treatments.

The procedure lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Some treatment effects are noticed almost immediately. Clients can generally return to work immediately and should be able to attend upcoming social engagements.

Treatment with wrinkle relaxation injections can have remarkable rejuvenating effects in clients. The appearance of prominent dynamic frown lines and crow’s feet are dramatically reduced and give a very pleasing rejuvenating effect. However, it is important to note that this treatment will not improve lines and wrinkles associated with the effects of ageing and sun damage that are visible on the face whilst at rest – static lines. The effects of wrinkle relaxation injections tend to last about 4 months but slightly less for males due to physiologic reasons. At your consultation we will demonstrate the difference between dynamic and static lines to you and help you to make treatment decisions that we are confident you will be pleased with.
