Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick, affordable and effective treatment to reduce and prevent wrinkle formation.
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process – our skin gets thinner, drier and we lose elastin. As a result, we experience wrinkles, creases and lines forming on our skin.
Continuous muscle contraction is also another major contributor of facial wrinkles. Continuous muscle movement causes 'dynamic wrinkles' which only appear when the muscle is used, however, over time, if untreated, these wrinkles can become permanently etched in our skin.
Performed by our expert nurses, anti-wrinkle injections reduce the signs of ageing by smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles, helping your skin to appear clearer and more youthful
How do Anti Wrinkle Injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections can give you a more relaxed and youthful looking face, forehead or eyes, whilst still allowing mobility. Anti-wrinkle injections are particularly effective in treating deep frown lines or nasolabial folds.
At the Face & Body Clinic, we have access to a wide range of anti-wrinkle technologies and in consultation with you, will use these anti-wrinkle injections in conjunction with a complete treatment plan for your face and body.
What are the risks?
On rare occasion, side effects immediately following anti-wrinkle injections can include mild bruising from the injection itself, headache or flu-like symptoms.
Very rarely the following side side effects can also occur:
-Weakness in surrounding muscles
Any side effects that occur are temporary and all risks are discussed in detail with our doctors at your consultation appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
Anti-wrinkle injections typically last 3-6 months depending on how your body metabolises the product.
Repeat treatments depend on the individual and our medical team will be able to advise the best time to make your next appointment.
What happens during my treatment?
A number of small injections are made in an area targeted to the muscles which are causing your wrinkles, each to a specific depth and with a specific volume of product.
The procedure will take around 15-30 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
Is it painful?
Anti-wrinkle injections are administered using a very fine needle and a very small amount of liquid. Many people say it feels like a mosquito bite.
What should I expect after my treatment?
You can expect the full effect of your anti-wrinkle injections to be apparent after 3-10 days and for the effects to last approximately 3-6 months.
What precautions should I take pre and post treatment?
-Consumption of alcohol
It is also recommended to avoid the following for two weeks:
-Extended exposure to heat or freezing temperatures
