Anti wrinkle injections
Medix Skincare & Laser Clinic offers anti wrinkle injections at our Melbourne clinic to address wrinkles and lines caused by factors such as ageing and sun exposure. A safe and non-invasive treatment, wrinkle fillers can be performed on wrinkles under eyes, around the mouth and elsewhere, helping to reduce their appearance.
How do they work?
Anti wrinkle injections contain a naturally occurring substance that works to relax muscles, blocking the signals of nerves so muscles don’t contract. Once relaxed, the movement of the muscles is reduced, smoothing existing wrinkles and helping to prevent the development of new wrinkles.
What concerns can they address?
Wrinkle fillers can target a number of wrinkles and lines in the facial area, including:
- Crow’s feet and eye wrinkles
- Wrinkles under eyes
- Bunny lines
- Forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Frown lines
What does the procedure involve?
The procedure involves the use of a fine-gauge needle to administer the anti wrinkle injections where they’re needed. The number of injections required will depend on the treatment area, with the eye area often requiring fewer injections than the forehead area.
While the procedure can cause discomfort for some, the majority of patients feel no pain. After the treatment, bruising may occur around the treatment site, but this can be lessened with the use of an ice pack.
