How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections are made of a protein called Botulinum Toxin, which is injected directly into specific muscles in the face. It works by temporarily relaxing the muscle to prevent the movement that causes a wrinkle, creating a smoother appearance.
The treatment takes between 20-30 minutes. We will first remove any make up and fully cleanse the area to be treated. The procedure itself simply involves a series of injections into the facial muscles and is quite painless, patients will only feel a scratch as the very fine needle enters the skin. We can apply a numbing cream, but most patients do not find this necessary.
The product usually takes up to 4 days to start taking effect, and full results can be seen after 2 weeks. Around this point, we see patients for a complimentary review and will provide a top-up if required.
On average, the results of anti-wrinkle injections will last up to 4 months, although this will vary from patient to patient.
After having treatment with Botulinum toxin patients are advised not to rub the area and to avoid any beauty treatments such as facial massage, saunas and extreme temperatures for up to 2 weeks. Patients are required to attend a complimentary review 2-3 weeks after treatment, which is when any slight adjustments can be made, if necessary.
Patients who have any concerns about possible complications after their treatment are advised to contact us or their GP straight away.
What are the side effects?
One of the many advantages of anti-wrinkle treatment is that side effects are very minimal. The most common reaction is mild redness or bruising at the injection site and some patients experience a slight headache following treatment.
As with any treatment, sometimes complications can occur with botulinum toxin such as swelling, an allergic reaction, or temporary drooping of eyelids or eyebrows after forehead injections. These are very rare but all risks and contraindications will be explained during your face to face consultation.
