Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti Wrinkle Injections
Why choose anti-wrinkle injections?
As we age our skin becomes thinner, our muscles contract and our faces begin to appear more hollowed out.
Our skin gradually loses its youthful ability to bounce back, it loses its structure and as a result we start to develop fine lines and wrinkles which make us look older.
These skin changes can start to appear as early as in our twenties and thirties and the longer we leave them, the deeper they become as well as more difficult to treat and reverse.
Anti-wrinkle injections can offer you a simple solution that can both prevent and maintain a youthful appearance.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
There are a number of different anti-wrinkle brands and products on the market and we offer a variety of them. However, their mechanism of action is universal.
Ultimately, these products have been scientifically developed to stop signals arriving from the nerve to the muscle which would usually tell it to contract. As the facial muscles are increasingly relaxed the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are simultaneously reduced.
What can I expect after my anti-wrinkle injections?
Between days 2-7 post treatment you will notice your facial lines and wrinkles reducing and between 2-4 weeks the maximal effect will be achieved.
Depending on the extent of your fine lines and wrinkles, the effects can start reducing at the 2 month mark and at approximately 4 months about 80% of the effect will have worn off.
Most clients choose to have their treatments every 3-4 months however, this will be determined by your preferences, your individual needs and response to each treatment.
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
As with every treatment, anti-wrinkle injections are associated with risks. Please be reassured this is a doctor prescribed and undertaken treatment and compared to other non-surgical cosmetic procedures it carries relatively low risk.
The most common side effects include headaches, bruising, redness and swelling at the injection sites. Please be reassured our doctor will always consult you on all the potential outcomes prior to your treatment and that some people don’t experience any of them.
