Dr Tow Lim at Essendon Eye Clinic also offers anti wrinkle injections for the improvement of frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes and forehead wrinkles. These injections have a temporary muscle weakening effect, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, which results in a fresher, smoother complexion.
Anti wrinkle injections are a safe and straightforward procedure that is carried out routinely in the clinic. Treatment involves the injection of selected areas with a muscle-relaxing drug and takes a few minutes to perform. Subsequently, the appearance of lines and wrinkles slowly improves with the full effect seen at about two weeks after the treatment. The duration of the effect of the medication usually lasts between three and four months and can be repeated when necessary.
The procedure is generally low in risk and safe. Minor side effects that can occur are bruising and mild headache that normally settles in a few days. More serious but rare side effects reported are droopy eyelid or double vision. These side effects are temporary and resolve with time.
Dr Lim and Dr Muesemann use anti-wrinkle injections for neuro-ophthalmic conditions such as blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm.
