Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily improve, reduce or eliminate the look of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, resulting in a refreshed, rested, more youthful look.
What to Expect from your treatment?
Lines and wrinkles will soften over the next few days. You will begin to see results in three to five days, with full results in 10 days. Injectables appointments take approximately 30 minutes, with about half of the time spent on consultation and half on the treatment itself.
- Does it hurt?
Anti wrinkle injections are generally a comfortable treatment that is well tolerated. You may feel a little sensitivity at the point of application, though this can be minimised through the use of a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. If you have any concerns, please discuss this with us at your consultation and we will be happy to help alleviate your concerns.
- Are there any side effects?
As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Any potential side effects will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation. Any swelling will typically subside within around 48 hours and bruising can be easily concealed with makeup.
What result can I expect?
This treatment works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. You can expect to see much reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles at the point of application and immediate surrounding area giving you a more youthful look. We always aim to ensure that results appear natural as opposed to ‘frozen’, which is a common concern for people looking to undergo this treatment. Post treatment, the result will continue to develop, and you will enjoy a refreshed and rejuvenated look to your upper face
- Is it safe?
We use FDA approved Botox injections for the treatment of wrinkles. This treatment has been through many studies to prove its effectiveness, and it has an excellent safety record. As with any injectable treatment, you should ensure that your practitioner is highly skilled.
