Mid Face

Anti wrinkle injections are super for treating ageing related concerns to the mid-face.

They can be used on a number of conditions that have occurred through the repeated use of muscles in the face that have resulted in the appearance of wrinkles. The use of wrinkle relaxing injections to the mid face requires an advanced understanding of the facial muscular anatomy. Anti wrinkle injections work by targeting the muscles in the face that cause the appearance of wrinkles and relaxing them so that the surface of the skin appears smoothed and line free.

At VIVA Skin Clinics, Dr Rupert is proud to use products by Allergan, one of the safest and most renowned brands.

Anti wrinkle injections are generally a comfortable treatment that is well tolerated. You may feel a little sensitivity at the point of application, though this can be minimised through the use of a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. If you have any concerns, please discuss this with us at your consultation and we will be happy to help alleviate your concerns.

As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Any potential side effects will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Rupert. Any swelling will typically subside within around 48 hours and bruising can be easily concealed with makeup.

Repeated movements to the face including smiling, laughing and smoking can cause the face to form deeper set wrinkles over time. This treatment works by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin, so that the skin doesn’t naturally fall into a crevice created by these muscles. Post treatment, you can expect that the skin overlying muscles will appear smoother and flatter thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. We always aim to ensure that results appear natural as opposed to ‘frozen’, which is a common concern for people looking to undergo this treatment. Post treatment, the result will continue to develop. Your final look will be one that is fresh and youthful, leaving you feeling happy and confident with your improved look.

We use FDA approved injections for the treatment of mid face wrinkles. This treatment has been through many studies to prove its effectiveness, and it has an excellent safety record. As with any injectable treatment, you should ensure that your practitioner is highly skilled. The treatment is a prescription only medicine, and therefore should only be administered by a Doctor, Dentist or Prescribing Nurse. It is important that you always check the credentials of your practitioner prior to treatment.
