Anti-wrinkle injections involve several injections to relax the muscles where their activity causes lines and wrinkles.
The procedure involves injecting botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein commonly known as Botox ® that blocks the nerve signal from your brain to your muscles, causing them to temporarily relax thus limiting movement of certain muscles.
The result is that the skin of the area treated becomes smoother and unwrinkled and appears younger offering a natural, rejuvenated look.
Call to discuss with practitioner.
What will the treatment involve?
Your medical practitioner will complete a thorough consultation.
The area to be treated is cleansed and then the botulinum toxin solution is injected into the wrinkle-causing muscles.
The treatment takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
Allow extra time if you want the application of the local anesthetic.
Why have the procedure?
Anti-wrinkle Injections are known for being a quick procedure and providing undeniable results, which makes this the most popular anti-ageing cosmetic treatment available.
This treatment will be excellent to treat:
• Frown lines (between eyebrows)
• Brow Lift
• Crows feet (lines at the side of the eyes)
• Forehead lines
• Downturned mouth
• Excess sweating
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades and thousands of men and women have received Anti-winkle injections in the UK every year.
Botulinum toxin is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands and it does not reach any other part of the body.
Providing the Anti-wrinkle injections are administered by a medical practitioner the risks are extremely minimal.
Anti-wrinkle injections are administered by our medical expert doctor and nurse prescriber to ensure that quality and safety is paramount.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is generally pain free as a local anesthetic is applied to the treated area prior to the administration of the injections. If you opt out of the local anesthetic a mild discomfort can be experienced due to the small needle injections involved. Care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible.
As with all injections there may be some mild temporary discomfort and redness in the direct injection site which subsides quickly.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
One treatment is required every 3 to 6 months to keep the desired look.
Depending on the severity of the lines and wrinkles, dermal filler may be recommended along with the Anti-wrinkle Injection, as the Botulinum toxin can stop the repetitive action but the wrinkle may be too deep to be smoothed out alone.
How quickly will I see the results?
You will see results 4 to 10 days after a single treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results can last 3 to 6 months.
The skin may appear red, inflamed and feel sensitive post Anti-wrinkle injections. Treat the skin as sensitive for 24 hours or until the skin completely appears calm.
Avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours.
Avoid any exposure to a sauna, hot tub or tanning for up to 24 hours.
Avoid a facial, rub or massage the treated areas for up to 24 hours.
Avoid consuming any alcohol for up to 24 hours.
Avoid air travel for 48 hours.
It is advised to return to your practitioner in two weeks for a review post Anti-wrinkle injections.
The application of an SPF when exposing your skin to UV can prevent long term skin damage.
What are the possible side effects?
The most common side effects are redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising which will all resolve.
Some patients experience a mild headache after the Botox treatment. If this happens, it may be advisable to take a headache pill.
Other complications are rare but could include temporary drooping of the eyelids or eyebrows, which can be resolved.
The risk of side effects following treatment is reduced by consultation with an experienced medical practitioner.
