Wrinkle Reducing Injections

Smooth Away Facial Wrinkles

Wrinkle reducing injections can be a simple and low-impact treatment for reducing signs of aging.  There are a wide variety of  treatments for reducing the lines of the face and neck to create a smoother more youthful look.   The following before and after photo illustrates treatment of forehead wrinkles.  For this particular case, the result delivers a significant improvement in smoothness of the skin for this area:

How is it done?

Small amounts of product are injected into the target areas. The injections are done with help of a very fine needle.  Common areas to be treated are the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and the marionette lines around the mouth.

Is it painful?

Due to the extremely fine gauge of the needles, most people find it painless, however in certain sensitive areas anaesthetic cream might be applied prior to the treatment, numbing the area, and making the injections more comfortable.

How long does a treatment take?

The actual injections take only 5 to 10 minutes. However, every patient is consulted and counselled prior to the treatment and a before photo is taken. The entire process requires approximately 30 minutes.

What am I going to look like immediately after the procedure?

Slight swelling at the site of injection settles within 10-15 minutes. No changes are expected immediately; the results of the treatment are gradual and become apparent only after 24-72 hours after the injections.

How long does a treatment last?

On average skin remains smooth for 3-6 months.

Using Muscle Relaxing Injections to Smooth the Neck, and Tighten the Jawline

The Bust of Queen Nefertiti Showing Off the Smooth Lines of Her Neck and Jawline

A more youthful face includes a smooth neck and a crisply defined jawline.

Unfortunately, with age these parts of our face begin to slip, giving rise to an initial sagging of the jowls and the beginnings of the so-called turkey neck.  In addition, there is a down turning of the edges of the mouth, giving an impression of a permanent frown.

The Nefertiti Lift is a non-surgical neck and jawline lift, tightening and smoothing these areas using muscle relaxing injections.

How does it Work?

Some muscles pull facial features downwards (depressors), while others balance this by pulling them upwards (elevators).

Using muscle relaxing injections to relax depressor muscles allows elevator muscles to pull up specific features of the face without opposition.  The result produces a tightening and smoothing effect.


Although the Nefertiti Lift cannot compete with the efficacy and longevity of a thread lift, it is much more affordable, and can provide a reasonably good result for combatting early signs of ageing around the jowls and neck.
