What are Wrinkle Injections?

What are Wrinkle Injections?


Wrinkle injections are procedures where an active ingredient is injected into the treatment area to relax muscles that cause wrinkles. At anti-aging we use a superior and proven solution of muscle relaxing injections.

What is involved in treatment?

anti-aging practitioners offer full consultation and assessment prior to any treatment. A small amount of solution is injected into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief. After the injection, it takes about 5-7 days to notice the effect and 10 days for the full effect.

Is this treatment safe?

The solution has been used for cosmetic purposes for over 15 years and for medical purposes for over 25 years. In addition to it’s cosmetic use, the solution has been used to treat cerebral palsy in children and movement disorders in adults. Although the wrinkle injections have been used for many years they should not be used in pregnancy, lactating mothers and other medical conditions. It is very important to tell your cosmetic practitioner if you have health problems or on any medication prior to treatment.

Are side effects possible with wrinkle injections?

Although side affects do occassionally occur, all anti-aging cosmetic practitioners take particular care to minimise them. Minor side effects include bruising which may last 5-7 days, occassional reddness or swelling which usually goes in a few hour. More signicant side effects relate to dosage and positioning and that is why anti-aging cosmetic practitioners continue to undergo regular training and upgrading to fine tune their skills.
These more significant side effects include uneven results, poor or failed results, puffiness around the eyes and even mouth or eye droop if the wrinkle injections placement is inappropriate. These more significant side effects usually improve in 2-4 weeks and can improve quicker with appropriate care.

How long do wrinkle injections last?

It lasts for approximately 3 months, depending on the individual. The result will usually wear off progressively after 2 months as expression lines gradually return to their original appearance. The lines will never be worse after treatment. For some clients, the more often you have the treatment the less frequently it is required as the effects may last longer with each application.

What areas can be enhanced with wrinkle injections?

anti-aging cosmetic practitioners are continually pioneering innovative techniques in non surgical cosmetic procedures including:

Lines and wrinkles on the upper face

Frown Lines (between the eyes)

Crow’s Feet (lines on the sides of the eyes)

Horizontal brow lines

Eye brow lifts

Facial lifts upper and lower

Enlarging and opening up eyes

Softening lines under eyes

Softening the lines in the neck

Softening and improving the drooping mouth corners

Facial contouring.

Migraine management

Excess sweating in either or palms, feet and under arms.

managing teeth grinding and associated headaches.

How much could I expect to invest?

anti-aging are one of the largest providers of cosmetic enhancement procedures in Australia. We use this to our advantage and we take pride in passing this on to you. We believe that everyone deserves the benefits of cosmetic enhancement.

Facts about Botox and Dermal Fillers-Evolution Laser Rejuvenation Centre

-


Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid Gels, such as Juvéderm™ and Restylane® are injected into the skin adding volume to lips, filling in wrinkles and folds in the skin.
Hylluronic Acid is found naturally in all living organisms. 56% of our body’s hyaluronic acid is found in the skin and it’s primary function is to provide volume and pliability to the skin. It also plays a crucial role in cell growth. As we get older our skin cells lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid, it’s molecular weight decreases and its ability to hold water lessens. Hyaluronic acid gives soft issue its bulk and “feel”.

RADIESSE®

RADIESSE® consists of tiny calcium-based microspheres that form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. RADIESSE® rebuilds your skin’s foundation without the risks associated with a permanent implant. Results can last up to 18 months.

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel

JUVÉDERM®Injectable Gel is an excellent treatment option for lip enhancement, deep folds, facial lines, wrinkle correction, volume augmentation of the lips, shaping facial contours (such as cheeks and chin correcting) and smile lines (correcting thin, superficial lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead).
JUVÉDERM®Injectable Gel is a hyaluronic acid gel which is a naturally occuring sugar found in your body. Restylane® is a non-animal based substance, making it a safe alternative for those patients allergic to collagen.
They are both gradually reabsorbed by the body, Results from Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®Injectable Gel are apparent almost immedicately and typically last longer than collagen.

Are there Side Effects?

After your treatment, you might have some redness or swelling. This will normally last less than 1 week. Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappear. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, you shouldn’t use Restylane® or Juvéderm™.

Restylane® has been used in more than 3 million treatments in over 60 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles. In the U.S. the FDA has approved Restylane for wrinkles and folds like the ones from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Our specialist will consult with you prior to your injection regarding common treatment areas and the appropriate filler for the areas.

How long do the fillers last?

Studies have shown that JUVÉDERM®Injectable Gel and Restylane® effects generally last for about six months, even up to a year. With regularly spaced treatments, patients usually require less of the material and increased time between treatments.

How do fillers different from BOTOX® Cosmetic?

JUVÉDERM®Injectable Gel and Restylane® are natural cosmetic fillers. In contrast, Botox is a drug that blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the underlying muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with both products.

Botox and Dysport Face Off on Crow's Feet

ABC News - Mikaela Conley

By MIKAELA CONLEY


June 21, 2011

The wrinkle results are in and might surprise some people. The anti-wrinkle injection Dysport proved better at reducing crow's feet than its older, more popular competition, Botox.

So says a first-of-its-kind study, published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, which compared the two different kinds of botulinum toxins. In a 30-day trial, researchers injected 90 study participants with both medications, using one kind on the right side of the face and the other on the left. They found that both physicians and patients rated Dysport as more effective at reducing crow's feet lines, while smiling, than Botox.
When the facial muscles were at rest, researchers noted no significant differences between the two agents.
"In this study, we were injecting the two agents in the same person's face," said Dr. Cory Maas, a San Francisco-based facial plastic surgeon and lead author of the study. "The sites were far enough away from each other so that the agents could not have an effect on each other, and by doing a split-face study, we have taken all the variables out of the equation, like age, gender and ethnicity."
Funding for the study was solicited from both Medicis Aesthetics Inc., the maker of Dysport, and Allergan Inc., the creator of Botox, but only Medicis Aesthetics funded the study.

"The key issue is the claim of superiority that is being made based on a small study," said Kellie Lao, an Allergan spokesperson, in an emailed statement. "In order for a superiority claim to be validated, it requires a large, well-controlled, double blind, head-to-head comparative trial and neither Allergan nor Medicis has published such a study that would substantiate any claims of superiority."


"This study only reported data out to 30 days, so the long-term comparative efficacy is unknown," continued Lao. "This is of critical importance to patients and practitioners."

Medicis Aesthetics Inc. did not return requests for comment.


Botulinum toxin, a protein that was long considered harmful, has now been widely adopted for cosmetic and medical uses. While the term "botox" is typically used to describe the muscle paralyzing injections, there are actually a few kinds of botulinum toxins on the market. Both products analyzed in the study are FDA-approved for certain kinds of cosmetic procedures, but are considered off-label use for treatment around the eyes.
"The results are surprising to me, as I use both products and find them comparable," said Dr. Julius Few, founder of the Few Institute for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. "I believe the study was very well done and the investigators are well-respected in our field. I do find that some patients prefer Botox and others prefer Dysport for subjective reasons that are difficult to objectify."
Dr. Maurice Khosh, a Manhattan-based plastic surgeon, said he uses the products interchangeably, so he was also surprised by the results. Based on the study results, he "may begin to use Dysport more for the lateral orbital region."
Many doctors use both kinds of brands in their offices, but some prefer Botox because it was the first on the market, it is more recognized by patients and patients commonly ask for the brand.

"Some will choose based on the cost of the product," said Dr. Gregory H. Branham, professor and chief of facial plastic surgery at Washington University in Saint Louis. "The most important aspect of using these different botulinum toxins is not which one you get, but making sure that you are being injected by a reputable and respected physician who does a lot of these injections."
Few agreed that both kinds offer positive results, and the most important part of the injection process comes from the doctors doing the injecting.

Jun 21, 2011Botox scares me... I am ALL ABOUT healthy living and wanted to find some solutions to help me age gracefully. I found Essence Of Argan ( www.worldsbestarganoil.com ) about 3 months ago and am thrilled. 100% natural, pure, organic, Argan oil which has been used for centuries to combat aging in Morocco (which i think means land of beautiful skin :)... Hands-down, this is the best skin/hair care product on the market today. I use it everywhere and even in my bath. It is even used for my niece's diaper rash! Anything that is safe enough for babies and loaded w/ omega 3/6/9's (which are not naturally produced by the body) and vitamin E is perfect for me! I hope this helps - and I urge all of you to try this product - you will thank me!

Wrinkle Treatments & Injectables-Lip Enhancement

Your skin will appear smoother and fuller and have an overall more youthful appearance with
wrinkle injections.




Lip Enhancement
Similar to dermal filler procedures, lip enhancement works by injecting hyaluronic acid into the area underneath the skin. This creates increased volume, making the lips appear fuller and more luscious. As well as increased volume, a lip enhancement procedure can add foundation to the skin and smooth out creases, leading to a more youthful appearance. Whatever your desired outcome, Clinic Aesthetic’s lip enhancing methods are effective and safe, using substances naturally found in the body to enhance your lips and give you a sexier, more youthful pout.

Gain confidence with wrinkle injections

You might have reached an age when looking in the mirror is a stressful process. Where once you saw firm, radiant skin on your face, you may now view wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
This can be difficult to cope with. After all, there is considerable pressure these days to appear youthful and so, like many people, you might be eager to fight the ageing process.
Exhibiting wrinkles and other such imperfections can have a significant impact on your life. For example, you might begin to feel less confident in your personal and professional dealings and worry that people see you differently.
Of course, there are ways of minimising the effects of the passage of time. For example, avoiding smoking and too much alcohol can help, as can eating a healthy diet and engaging in sensible forms of exercise.
However, these are by no means a quick fix and they cannot work miracles.
But there is another option that may be able to boost your confidence and that is to invest in cosmetic surgery. These days there are procedures around that can help, such as anti wrinkle injections.
Here at botonics, we provide such treatments. Getting assistance of this kind is by no means unusual. For example, in the USA the equivalent of one in 100 consumers has this kind of treatment each year.

Wrinkle injections can temporarily reduce the lines around and between people’s eyes, on their forehead and around their mouths.

To find out more about such cosmetic surgery, simply peruse the relevant section of our website.

Associated Side Effects of Botox Wrinkle Injections

Health Articles -Local business in Phoenix Associated Side Effects of Botox Wrinkle Injections
February 26, 2011

Before you make the decision to begin Botox treatments, you may be curious about the side effects of Botox injections.

Before you make the decision to begin Botox treatments, you may be curious about the side effects of Botox injections. When receiving Botox treatment it is important to remember to read the Medication Guide each time you receive a Botox injection. There is a chance that new information could be added to the guide that you need to be mindful of. Also, talk to your doctor about your medical condition, the guide does not replace communication between you and your doctor.
Keep in mind that although many people have no, or minor, side effects, Botox Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A) like other medicines may cause side effects. Be aware of the common side effects that can occur and check with your doctor if the side effects persist or become bothersome.
When using Botox Cosmetic, some patients experienced the following side effects:

Anxiety; back pain; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; dry or irritated eyes; facial pain; flu-like symptoms; headache; inability to focus eyes; increased cough; indigestion; nausea; neck pain; pain, redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site; runny nose; sensitivity to light; stiff or weak muscles at or near the injection site; sweating.


Again, many patients experience minor or no side effects when receiving Botox treatment; however, some serious side effects can occur when using Botox Cosmetic. It is extremely important to contact your doctor or get medical help right away if you experience any of the following problems:


Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness); bleeding at the injection site; chest pain; difficulty swallowing or breathing; double or blurred vision or other vision changes; drooping of the upper eyelid; eyelid swelling; fainting; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; irregular heartbeat; loss of bladder control; loss of strength; paralysis; seizures; severe or persistent muscle weakness or dizziness; shortness of breath; speech changes or problems.

In some cases, the effect of the botulinum toxin may affect areas of the body that are away from the injection site. The spread of toxin effects can cause a serious condition known as botulism. The symptoms of botulism can include:

Loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body; double vision; blurred vision and dropping eyelids; hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia); trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria); loss of bladder control; trouble breathing; and trouble swallowing.


All Botox side effects can happen hours to weeks after you receive treatment. Remember this is not a complete list of all side effects that may occur after receiving a Botox injection. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you experience any problems or have any of the above symptoms, especially if the side effect bothers you or does not go away.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information


Indication

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:
Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months

Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia), trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria), loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities

The dose of BOTOX® Cosmetic is not the same as, or comparable to, another botulinum toxin product.

There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines.

Serious and/or immediate allergic reactions have been reported. These reactions include: itching, rash, red itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint. Tell your doctor or get medical help right away if you are wheezing or have asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint.

Do not take BOTOX® Cosmetic if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic (see Medication Guide for ingredients); had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
Tell your doctor about all your muscle or nerve conditions, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, as you may be at increased risk of serious side effects including severe dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and respiratory compromise (difficulty breathing) from typical doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you have: plans to have surgery; had surgery on your face; weakness of forehead muscles, such as trouble raising your eyebrows; drooping eyelids; any other abnormal facial change; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if BOTOX® Cosmetic can harm your unborn baby); are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed (it is not known if BOTOX® Cosmetic passes into breast milk).
This product contains albumin taken from human blood. Steps taken during donor screening and product manufacturing processes make the risk of spreading viral diseases extremely rare. In theory, there is also an extremely rare risk of contracting Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). No cases of spread of viral diseases or CJD have ever been reported for albumin.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Using BOTOX® Cosmetic with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines until you have told your doctor that you have received BOTOX® Cosmetic in the past.

Especially tell your doctor if you: have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months; have received injections of botulinum toxin, such as Myobloc®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® in the past (be sure your doctor knows exactly which product you received); have recently received an antibiotic by injection; take muscle relaxants; take an allergy or cold medicine; or take a sleep medicine.
Other side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic include: dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, neck pain, and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, drooping eyelids, swelling of your eyelids, and dry eyes.
For more information refer to the Medication Guide or talk with your doctor.
