ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS
When will I see results?
You will see a noticeable difference within the first two weeks after your treatment. Some people start to see a reduction in muscle movement as early as four days after their treatment.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
The results last on average 3-4 months. Regular repeat treatments can increase this duration.
How long does the treatment take?
Appointments are scheduled for half an hour to allow time for a consultation, questions and the treatment itself.
Are there any side effects?
Most patients experience pinpoint redness at the injection sites for around half an hour post treatment. As the treatment begins to work, you may notice some temporary strange “sensations” around the treated areas as the muscles that have not been injected adjust. Some people describe this as a heaviness feeling similar to a mild headache. These are only short-term effects that will only last a few days. Temporary weakness of the facial muscles can also occur. It is best to avoid touching/massaging the area after treatment. This ensures the product is not dispersed into other muscles.
Can I resume normal activities after my treatment?
Absolutely, there is no downtime or recovery period with anti-wrinkle injections! However, you are advised to avoid alcohol, excessive exercise and hot temperature changes such as saunas to prevent sweating out the product for the next 24 hours. We also recommend avoiding massaging or rubbing the area after the treatment to avoid the product being dispersed into another muscle. Any laser and facial treatments such as microdermabrasion or skin needling should be avoided for a minimum of 10 days post treatment.
Who shouldn’t have Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have anti-wrinkle injections. Although they are not thought to be dangerous, treatment is best avoided during this time. People suffering from diseases involving nerve damage or muscle weakness such as Eaton Lambert Syndrome, Myasthenia Gravis or neurological disorders, anti-wrinkle treatments are strictly not recommended. Patients who are currently being treated with amino-glycoside antibiotics or spectinomycin should wait until they have completed their course of treatment. Anyone who has had an allergic reaction to human albumin should not have anti-wrinkle treatments
