Anti-Wrinkle Injections With Dr Sarah Tobin
At MediGlow we’re currently offering anti-wrinkle injections to tackle the so-called “dynamic” wrinkles. Wrinkles such as glabella, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other lines around the forehead are the source of much consternation because they can be difficult to treat, even with surgery. These types of wrinkles often don’t respond well to laser treatment or dermal fillers.
We use one the most common injectables used worldwide today for the treatment of wrinkles. When a miniscule amount is injected, it inhibits the contraction the targeted muscle causing it to relax. Because there is less muscle movement, there is a natural softening of any wrinkles on the skin around the area.
Different Levels of Severity for Frown lines Around the Forehead and Brow
Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Safe?
Small doses such as those used in treatment, are safe — with very minimal risk to a patient’s health.
Is it Sore?
The needles used for treatments are extremely small, so the pain is quite minimal relative to other treatments.The treated area is usually numbed before treatment using a combination of methods, including ice packs or creams, depending on what is needed.
What are the side-effects of anti-wrinkle injections?
After the treatment, you may notice pain, bruising, or swelling around the treated area which should go away within a few days.
How Long Do Effects Last?
The treatment is not permanent. A treatment’s benefits typically lasts 3-6 months. After this period, the muscles in the treated area will become re-activated, begin to contact, and gradually the wrinkles will re-appear. It is safe to treat the area again before wrinkles re-appear.

What is the difference between Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers?
Depending on your desired result Sarah Tobin will use Anti-Wrinkle Injections or Dermal Fillers or a combination of both as they do different things but can be used in a complementary fashion. The injections relax facial muscles to diminish existing lines and to prevent new lines from forming. Dermal Fillers consist of Hyaluronic Acid and are used to instantly fill and smooth out existing wrinkles and folds. As their name implies they fill lines or can be used to add volume.
What is Hyaluronic Acid (Dermal Filler)?
Hyaluronic Acid is produced naturally in your body but diminishes as you age. HA locks moisture into the matrix, keeping collagen and elastin moist, promoting a youthful appearance. Injectable HA is used to lessen the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, sagging and depressions in the skin caused by age, acne, or injury.
