Wrinkles are the result of many factors, including natural aging, sun exposure, environmental factors and repetitive facial expression causing contraction of facial muscles. Their appearance can be reduced using specialised techniques.
1. How long is the recovery?
You should be able to go home the same day. You should be able to return to your normal activities on the same day. Depending on your type of work, you should be able to return on the same day. The maximum effect is usually seen approximately two weeks after the injections.
2. I’m worried about pain.
There is slight discomfort during the procedure, but this usually subsides within an hour or two.
3. Will I look natural?
Every effort will be made to give you a natural end result.
4. Can I avoid general anaesthetic?
This procedure doesn’t usually require anaesthetic.
5. What is the cost?

Normal facial expressions including smiling, frowning and squinting can result in wrinkles and fine lines appearing on the forehead, eye perimeter and between the eyebrows. Wrinkle relaxing injections (Botox and Dysport) relax wrinkles by acting on the underlying muscles in the face. As a result the overlying skin appears smoother.
The most common areas for wrinkle relaxing injections include forehead lines, frown lines, creases between the eyebrows and Crow’s feet. At Kinvara Private Hospital, we use both Botox and Dysport as wrinkle relaxing injections. The targetted area is injected and usually takes about 15 minutes and the maximum benefit is usually seen two weeks after the injections. The effects typically last between three to four months.

As with any surgical procedure, risks should be considered, and the decision to undergo wrinkle reduction should not be made hastily. Risks include;
Flu-like symptoms – including a headache
Bruising at the injection site – for the first 24 hours after treatment, brusing may occur but should subside,
Temporary weakness and droopiness of your facial features,
Resistance developing if the treatment if it’s repeated too frequently.
