READ OUR FAQ’S ON WRINKLE REDUCTION TREATMENT AT DR TYNG TAN AESTHETICS AND HAIR CLINIC.

1. HOW DO WRINKLE TREATMENT INJECTIONS PREVENT WRINKLES?

In helping to stall the effects of ageing on facial skin, this wrinkle treatment injection is popular because of its proven results. A controlled dosage of this solution relaxes muscle contraction by blocking nerve impulses. As a result, muscles activity is weakened while the overlying skin relaxes. This eventually softens the appearance of wrinkles. However, don’t expect instant results because the effects may take up to four days before there is any noticeable improvement. The results can last up to six months after treatment.

2. WILL A WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENT MAKE ME NUMB AND LOOK FROZEN?

A numbing sensation is expected over the treated areas, but it doesn’t mean that it will “freeze” your expression. This type of adverse effect occurs when the treatment is administered by an inexperienced injector. A skilled one can determine the appropriate amount of solution and placement to achieve natural-looking results. Therefore, one must take the time to entrust their results to certified practitioners with sound aesthetic judgment.

3. DOES A WRINKLE TREATMENT INJECTION HURT?

These injections are not as painful as they look. That is why no anaesthetic is required for this procedure. The injection is administered into the muscle using a fine needle, which significantly reduces any discomfort.

4. AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENTS?

You are a good candidate for anti-wrinkle injections if you are:

i. not allergic to the components of the solutions used

ii. not suffering from injection complications in or around the injection site

iii. not using this particular solution as a treatment for loss of bladder control, inability to urinate or irregular urinating habits

iv. not showing severe signs of skin ageing or sagging

vi. not experiencing any neurological or bleeding disorders

vii. not pregnant or breastfeeding

5. WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?

You will know when the solution has finally settled when your face looks refreshed rather than uptight.

6. WHAT KINDS OF WRINKLES ARE TREATED WITH THIS PARTICULAR INJECTION TREATMENT?

This particular wrinkle injection treatment addresses vertical frown lines located between your brows. It helps to smoothen crow’s feet, or the lines found on the outer edges of the eyes next to the temples and near the brows. It also treats dynamic wrinkles or the kind that is created by repeated facial expressions.

7. HOW MANY TIMES CAN I HAVE WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENTS?

You can always go back for retouches every time the solution wears off. But over time, you will need it less frequently as the muscles that control these areas become less strained.

8. DO WRINKLE COSMETIC INJECTIONS EVER BECOME INEFFECTIVE?

Wrinkle injection treatments are not permanent solutions, but it doesn’t make it ineffective. The treatment works for most people who experience mild to moderate skin ageing. So, to maintain results, you will have to get touch-up treatments.

9. WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENTS?

Possible side effects include local numbness, swelling, bruising or a burning sensation during injections. Some patients have reported temporary headaches and nausea. Most complications may only occur for a short span of time and can be avoided with proper injection techniques.

10. HOW MUCH DO WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENTS COST?

The actual cost of a wrinkle injection treatment depends on the area that has to be targeted. A personal consultation will help our doctor identify the target areas and determine the right treatment approach.
