What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetics treatment designed to help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. This is done by replenishing the skin with lost collagen using tiny amounts of Botulinum Toxin to relax the muscles of the treated area and combat anti-ageing . Keeping your skin rejuvenated looking visibly younger and refreshed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Undergoing plastic surgery is a major decision and you must be aware of what the treatment entails. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions people ask before making a final decision.

Ageing is a naturally occurring process that can affect confidence. If you are not confident or happy with fine lines and wrinkles and are looking to maintain a youthful complexion then anti-wrinkle injections may be the solution.

The immediate results from anti-aging treatments will give your skin a plumper and smoother appearance. Over time, it helps stimulate collagen production, keeping wrinkles at bay by keeping your skin hydrated and elastic. The best part is that the results are visible almost immediately – but remember to take good aftercare.

For best results, it’s advised that you continue with your normal anti-ageing skincare regime after your injections have healed.

Anti-wrinkle injections reduce muscle contractions by causing temporary paralysis preventing excessive wrinkling of the skin in the treated area. Some minor movement is natural and avoids the ‘frozen’ look which in my experience is desirable. A complimentary follow-up appointment at 2-3 weeks with any top-up required is included in the treatment package.

Anti-wrinkle treatments usually take 30 minutes to perform. The effects do not become apparent for 5-7 days. The injections block signals between the nerve and muscle which stops the skin forming wrinkles and allows the skin to heal over the following weeks to achieve that smooth and fresh appearance. The toxin is highly heat sensitive so no activity that will raise your body temperature should be undertaken for 48 hours after the treatment

Anti-wrinkle treatments can last up to 6 months depending on the treatment area and skin type. Having anti-wrinkle injections on a regular basis can provide many years of wrinkle free skin. It is recommended to wait at least 3-4 months between treatments.

Anti-wrinkle injections treatments are non-invasive treatments which means you can resume normal activities. However, it is still important to follow proper aftercare steps which will be explained to you. Some aftercare steps that are helpful to follow are:

  • Restraining yourself from drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours
  • Applying cold packs- It is common for bruising and swelling following treatment
  • Steering clear of strenuous activities (that could cause you to sweat) can help your body recover without any side effects.

Following proper aftercare advice will help you see the full benefits of the treatment, leaving you visibly happy and reducing the risk of complications.

Anti-wrinkle treatment is considered to be mildly painful. Some patients describe it as pinching sensation lasting a few seconds. However, if you are uncomfortable with needles or have a low pain threshold then you might find the procedure a little uncomfortable for a few minutes. Topical numbing cream is rarely used as it is the product itself that causes the discomfort, not the actual injection which is with an extremely fine needle.

Anti-Wrinkle treatments should be carried out by a medical practitioner who is registered and has the right to practice. You can check they are registered through the general medical council.
