At Delat Family Doctors, we have experienced doctors who can provide anit-wrinkle treatments for your face. The treatment involves a simple, non-surgical procedure which takes between ten to twenty minutes.
Anti-wrinkle treatment involves injection of very small amount of diluted botulinum toxin with a very fine needle into different parts of your face. The injection blocks the nerve impulses in the injected muscles and this prevents them from contracting when facial expressions are made. Using very fine needles means minimal discomfort is felt. Eventually wrinkles may soften; however, some of them may not entirely disappear. With less wrikles, your face looks younger.
Depends on the extent of the area of treatment, you may need more injections. Typically, an effective treatment for frown lines involves 5 injections. Treatment of other areas may need more injections.
After the procedure, you may notice mild swelling or redness around the injection points, which usually settles after a few days. Normal activities can be resumed shortly after the treatment.
The initial effects of treatment will start to appear in couple of days, and the maximum effect may commence after 1 to 3 weeks. The effects of injection can last between 3 to 4 months.
Anti-wrinkle treatments and/or filler injections are NOT bulk billed to medicare and you need to pay for your treatment. If you want to find out more about our anti-wrinkle treatments, please contact our clinic.
