Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle Injections: A perfect treatment option to reduce and prevent wrinkles

The Liquid Facelift is a facial contouring procedure that involves the use of strategically placed Anti-wrinkle Injections and dermal fillers around the face. This “injectable facelift” can create a younger, plumper look and address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. The principle is to give individuals features back which they have lost due to aging, stress and sun exposure. Liquid Facelift has been making a noticeable impact in aesthetic medicine during the past few years. An increasing number of individuals prefer the gradual and subtle changes of a ’Liquid Facelift’ in comparison to surgery.

What are Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle Injections are made from the bacteria that causes botulism. The toxins blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. This inability to move your overworked muscle eliminates the wrinkle and voilà! – you look rejuvenated.

Anti-wrinkle Injections is made from human plasma (part of the blood) which may contain viruses and other infectious agents. Donated plasma is tested and treated to reduce the risk of it containing infectious agents, but there is still a small possibility it could transmit disease. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of using this medication.

Consultation & Treatment
Come to your consultation prepared. Be honest with yourself about your wishes and questions. You will learn how Emervel products can be safely used to suit your needs and wishes, and you will be asked about your medical history. When you leave your consultation you should feel well informed about Emervel, and you should know what results to expect. Together with your Emervel Practitioner you decide which Emervel product is suitable for your needs. Before treatment, the practitioner will discuss pain relief with you. As every person has different preferences and sensitivity, the products in the Emervel range are available with integrated pain-relief (0.3% Lidocaine). Depending on which area you will have treated you will also have a choice of other anesthesia, such as anesthetic cream, dental block or ice.

A treatment with Emervel only takes about 15-30 minutes. It is performed by injecting Emervel through a fine needle into your skin (or for some treatments just under) to fill wrinkles or add volume, shape your face or lips or hydrate your skin.

After Filler Treatment
After treatment you will receive post-treatment guidelines. It is normal to experience some post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site. This typically subsides after a few days, up to one to two weeks. Following treatment, there is sometimes a need for a touch-up treatment to achieve an optimal result.
Your Next Emervel Filler Treatment
As Emervel is naturally biodegraded, you will eventually need to repeat the treatment to maintain the result. Return visits are typically made after 6-12 months for wrinkles or volume replacement and within 6-12 months for lips. Our Medical Practitioner will be able to advise a suitable treatment regime to maintain the look you desire.
