Dr Romi Gordon is now providing wrinkle-relaxing injections at Central City Medical Centre.
Wrinkle relaxing injections block the signals from the nerves to the facial muscles, stopping the movement of the muscles which causes wrinkles. They soften existing wrinkles and prevent the formation of new ones. Wrinkle relaxers do not alter the shape of the face.
Wrinkle relaxers are medical procedures which can only be performed in a clinical environment by a qualified medical practitioner in Western Australia. It is usually a 15 to 30 minute procedure. Several tiny injections are injected precisely into the muscles. No anaesthesia is required. It involves minimal down-time, so there is almost no disruption to your lifestyle and it can be done in your lunch break.
In three to ten days, you should see a marked improvement in moderate to severe lines. These will continue to improve for up to a month and should last several months and potentially up to five months.
Although the results are visible, wrinkle treatments will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscle movement which cause wrinkles is reduced but not completely stopped and normal muscle movement returns over time. The result of the treatment is a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Wrinkle relaxers are effective for:
At your first appointment with Dr Romi Gordon, she will examine your facial muscles to determine which areas are best suited for wrinkle relaxers. Dr Gordon will discuss the costs with you at this time as this depends on how many areas are being treated and how many injections are required. If you decide to proceed, you can either re-book to do the procedure on another day, or, time permitting, Dr Gordon can do the procedure immediately.
