At Cosmedicare, your skin clinic in Cardiff, we’re passionate about giving you the beautiful skin you deserve. One of our popular treatments is wrinkle relaxers, also known as anti-wrinkle injections. For men and women, wrinkle reduction treatments can have truly transformative results – but as some clients are new to the treatment, we wanted to shine a light on how this injectable works and what it can treat.
A revolutionary treatment
People are often surprised at how diverse wrinkle relaxers are. Not only does it fill in those troublesome lines and wrinkles and reveal tighter, smoother skin – the hallmarks of youth – but it’s sometimes used to treat excessive sweating and headaches. It’s also popular amongst men, too.
A reliable wrinkle-freezer
Wrinkle relaxers can be carried out on most areas of the face, from frown lines between the brows to crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes. Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by expressive muscles, so the treatment works to ‘numb’ these muscles and prevent them from moving as much. In turn, this can actually help prevent wrinkles from worsening (deepening).
A safe procedure
Although wrinkle relaxers are a type of toxin, it’s naturally-derived and risks are small when carried out by specialists such as ourselves. The treatment also uses a fine needle, to help make the treatment feel more comfortable. Some people do experience side-effects after having anti-wrinkle injections, but these are usually brief and mild, such as light swelling or redness.
To prolong the results of your anti-wrinkle injections, staying out of the sun (and using SPF) can help – as can having a good skincare routine. We can give you more tailored advice at consultation stage.
Within just a few days, you’re likely to see the first effects of your wrinkle treatment, with clearer results showing in as little as a fortnight, and lasting up to 4 months. To prolong the effects, we recommend booking in with us every few months.
