Why do I need anti wrinkle injections?
Wrinkles are frequently caused by repetitive movement of the muscles that we use to form facial expressions and while we all need facial expressions to convey emotions. As we age, repeated use of some of these muscles can cause lines that are undesirable.
What do they do?
Injectable treatments are tailored to each individual and when injected just under the skin cause the surrounding muscles to gently relax. This reduction in muscle activity around the areas where the skin shows lines and furrows prevents the skin from creasing and gives it time to naturally recover its youthful appearance. The lines soften and fade away leaving younger, firmer looking skin.
How long will they last?
Results are visible in 2 to 14 days and last approximately 3 to 6 months.
What are the risks?
As with any cosmetic injectable treatment, line and wrinkle reducing procedures carry a degree of risk of complications. These will be discussed with you at consultation, prior to any treatment being agreed. Adverse events are uncommon, usually occur within a few days of treatment and are expected to be temporary, usually resolving spontaneously within weeks. Aftercare advice designed to minimise risk and promote speedy recovery from any expected side effects will be provided at your treatment appointment.
