Anti-Wrinkle injections refers to the standard cosmetic procedure also known as Botox.
This process involves injecting small amounts of Botulinum Toxin below the surface of the skin, in order to relax the muscles causing the wrinkles. This, in turn, creates a smoother and more youthful appearance.
How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections work?
Anti-Wrinkle injectables contain a substance known as Botulinum Toxin (Botox), which acts as a chemical messenger to the muscles in your face causing them to relax.
The wrinkling that occurs as we age, is due to the layer of muscle attached just below the surface of the skin. Anti-Wrinkle injections temporarily paralyses these muscles and creates a less wrinkled, significantly smoother and more youthful appearance.
Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections safe?
Anti-Wrinkle injections are very effective and safe when administered by a highly trained healthcare professional. However, there are important details to be aware of before choosing to receive this treatment.
- Anti-Wrinkle Injections: These injections can be very effective, but will not offer a permanent solution. For most people, the effects will begin to wear off 4-6 months post treatment, and top-ups will be required to maintain the smooth appearance.
- Ensure you have a first-time consultation: Before receiving your Anti-Wrinkle injections, you will have an in-depth and extensive consultation with our facial aesthetician. They will examine the area required for treatment and ask you a few questions that the procedure is 100% safe for you.
- Sometimes there may be a loss in certain facial expressions: Most modern Anti-Wrinkle Injections have phased out the likelihood of this occurring. With treatment from experienced professionals, this rare likelihood is much less likely to occur.
Results will not be seen immediately after treatment.
The effects will usually be visible 2 days post treatment and the full results will be seen around 14 days later.
It is advised to undergo any desired facial or other treatments prior to receiving your Anti-Wrinkle treatment. This will ensure that areas of treatment do not shift or become irritated. If you have already received your injections and do wish to undergo a facial treatment following this, you should wait for at least 2 weeks.
