Non-Surgical ways to boost your beauty
Anti-wrinkle injections offer a non-surgical option for reducing lines and wrinkles to create a more flawless and youthful apperarance.
The treatments work by relaxing facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines when you smile or frown.
The treatment relaxes only the muscles beneath the lines where product has been injected, and the muscles responsible for other aspects of your facial expression stay active. If you have no further treatments, the muscles return to normal and lines gradually go back to how they looked before treatment.
As it is a prescription-only medicine, the anti-wrinkle treatment is only available from qualified medical professionals.
The anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines and the vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows.
The injections are quick and simple. A small amount of the anti-wrinkle injection is injected into specific facial muscles with a very fine needle. Treatments generally take around ten minutes.
Typically, any pain is minimal and brief and no anaesthetic is required. You can resume normal activities immediately and it’s important to follow any post-treatment instructions your clinician gives you.
You’ll generally start to see results in 1-2 days of treatment and it can take from 10-14 days for full results to be seen.
The effects of treatments usually last up to 4 months and gradually decrease over time. Regular anti-wrinkle treatments may help effects to last longer and may help to reduce static wrinkles.
For the majority of patients, any side effects are temporary and limited to where the anti-wrinkle was injected. Possible side effects include pain, burning or stinging; bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site; local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids or eyebrows; swollen eyelids and skin tightness; tingling sensations, itching or aching forehead; headaches, nausea and flu-like symptoms.
