How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections work by stopping the nerves that contract the muscles, thereby smoothing the appearance of the line or wrinkle. The skin above the muscles appears softer & smoother, this can take up to 14 days. As the product takes time to settle into the facial muscles and nerve endings, this allows time for the product to get to work.
Does it hurt?
The treatment is considered relatively painless by the majority of patients. You will feel a little twinge or sting but generally, this is the extent of the sensation. In the case of anti-wrinkle injections, a tiny needle is used so you only feel a little twinge.
How long does it take?
With filler, the treatment length varies depending on the number of areas being treated but generally, it takes between 30 and 90 minutes. Anti-wrinkle injections take just a few moments!
How soon will I see results?
Anti-wrinkle injections take between 3 – 14 days to take effect.
How long will the results last?
Filler results last between 3 months and 18 months depending on your own body’s metabolic system and the product that is used. Anti-wrinkle injections last up to 6 months.
Is there any downtime?
There is a possibility of some bruising, swelling and redness but these typically subside 24 to 28 hours.
