The repeated contraction of the facial muscles that we normally use to smile, frown or laugh slowly creates creases and wrinkles of the face. These wrinkles are best treated with the injection of a wrinkle-relaxant toxin (botulinum toxin) that temporarily blocks the action of the treated muscles.
How it is done
The procedures takes about 20-30 minutes. The injection is performed with very small needles directly into the facial muscles that are causing the wrinkles. There is no need for anaesthesia, and the discomfort is minimal.
After the injection of wrinkle relaxants, the treated area should not be massaged for the first few hours. Moderate redness and swelling may be present, and they generally resolve within one day. The effect of the treatment are not immediate, and the toxin will require between 4 to 14 days to work.
Duration of the result
The results are temporary, normally lasting 3 to 4 months.
Cost of anti wrinkle injections
The cost of anti wrinkle injections starts from 250 KYD for one area treated. As all the cosmetic surgery procedures are highly personalized, please consider that these prices are guidelines only and may vary for each individual case.
