Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle Injections

A Toxin was first used in the 1970s to treat children with squints. It’s cosmetic potential was then recognised, and it has been used to treat wrinkles since 1990, but much longer for medical reasons. A convenient alternative to surgery, it is possible to use injections with the toxin to reduce and relax frown lines, forehead lines and laughter lines around the eyes.

The benefits of toxin injections are visible within 7 to 10 days of the treatment. They will last for three to four months when you first start having these injections, giving the face a smoother, more rested appearance. This is a preventative treatment, and with repeat injections over time, the less you will need. Our advanced aesthetic practitioners, can also use toxins for the lower face and neck.

Benefits of Anti-wrinkle injections

The toxin is known to help your body ‘naturally’ retrain itself to help further reduce such things as frown lines. When injected with the toxin, the muscles are temporarily immobilised which means that you will not be using those muscles that form the face into a frown. As a pleasant side effect of this, tension headaches and migraines will be reduced as well. These are benefits that you will receive at the hands of a renowned Facial Aesthetics Nurse.

After an initial consultation, you will be set an appointment for your anti-ageing injections. The actual ‘procedure’ only takes about five minutes. Continuing the example of relaxing the frown lines, your practitioner will ask you to frown so that she can assess your muscle activity and depth of lines produced.

It takes up to 14 days days for the toxin to become effective and at this time you will notice that it is getting increasingly hard to frown. After a period of two to three weeks those muscles will be ‘asleep’ and frowning will be, for all intents and purposes, a thing of the past. Most people frown without even noticing they are frowning, so anti-wrinkle treatments help to correct this inadvertent reflex. The process works in the same way for all the other conditions.

It is also nice to know that your post-treatment review at the two-week mark will accrue no further charges. Whilst some people may still be able to use a few of the muscles needed to form a frown, they will almost certainly need to work at it very hard in order to actually get that to happen. If you can frown after working at it, don’t despair as it doesn’t mean the treatment hasn’t worked. It simply means that you need to work very hard to frown whereas before it was a reflex action.

A word of caution

Those lines caused by sun-damaged skin or age-related sagging of the skin cannot be effectively treated with the toxin.
