Ageing happens to the best of us. No matter how much we do to exercise and stay feeling and looking young, our skin doesn’t always cooperate.
Fortunately, there’s something we can do to fight back, and anti-wrinkle injections are that something. White Hill Clinic in Inner West Sydney has years of experience helping men and women look as young as they feel.
Named “New Practice of the Year, Australia” by the MyFaceMyBody Awards in 2020, we’re committed to delivering the most advanced cosmetic treatments in a luxurious setting.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a broad class of techniques aimed at reducing the appearance of fine lines and creases that form as we age.
Most commonly applied on and around the face, these treatments offer an immediate respite from the signs of ageing. Some of these anti-wrinkle treatments work by relaxing or immobilizing the muscles under our skin while others actually fill in the lines themselves.
Others act via a third mechanism: prompting our bodies to create the compounds that make our skin firmer and more resilient. Each treatment method has its pros and cons, along with the duration of its effects. Our highly skilled professionals at White Hill Clinic will work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs and desires.
While they all can give you a younger appearance, going the injectable route has several distinct advantages over having more extensive work done. Rather than doing a facelift or getting facial implants, anti-wrinkle injections are non-invasive and require far less recovery time. Because they can be done in an hour or so, you’ll be in and out on the same day.
When you meet with your White Hill Clinic cosmetic professional, explain all of your concerns. They’ll help you craft the treatment plan that’s just right for you. Anti-wrinkle injections can tackle issues like:
If you’ve got any of those concerns, you may make a good candidate for anti-wrinkle injection treatments.
Ideally, you are in good health overall and are at a stable size and weight. You’re a non-smoker and free of any major health conditions like diabetes, cancer, or heart disease, plus you don’t have any active infections, especially on your skin.
To be an ideal candidate, you also understand the treatments well and are fully aware of the possible risks that come with them. You’ve received a second opinion from a qualified health practitioner and have healthy, realistic expectations for the procedure. Finally, you’re committed to long-term care for your skin.
All three approaches use the same application technique: injection. Usually, a topical or regional anesthetic is applied to the skin about to be treated. The anti-wrinkle agent is then injected in several places around the site, ensuring uniform and natural-looking results. Your treatment at White Hill Clinic performs will be tailored specifically to your needs, so our goal is to make you look the way you want. The treatments usually take less than an hour, so you’ll be home and healing the same day as your procedure. There are generally three types of anti-wrinkle injection treatments:
Compounds developed for medical use that are injected into the skin, filling in creases and wrinkles
Medical substances injected into the surface layer of the skin, promoting the production of collagen and the growth of new, healthy skin cells
Chemicals injected into the layer of muscles in the face, forcing them to relax or freeze, smoothing out the skin above
The recovery process from anti-wrinkle injections is typically very short and easy. You will most likely have slight redness and swelling around the injection sites.
Any pain or discomfort you experience should be slight, and it should be readily controlled with over-the-counter medication and/or cold presses. Some types of treatments may leave the treated area feeling numb, but that means it is working. Other treatments can have you feeling back to normal within as little as three days. You’ll receive detailed instructions on how to take care of yourself and what to expect before you leave White Hill Clinic, and — as always — we’re here to address any questions or concerns you may have at any time.
Once your recovery is complete, you’ll notice a significant reduction in the appearance of the wrinkles on your face. Your skin will be smoother and should look firmer and younger. Congratulations on finally looking as young as you feel!
No injection treatment is permanent, but the results usually last between six months and two years. Follow-up treatments are sometimes necessary, especially if you want to maintain the results long-term. Also, taking care of your skin and keeping up with your healthy diet and exercise routine will go a long way to making your results last as long as possible.
