What is an anti-wrinkle injection? Wrinkle relaxing (Botox as it's commonly known) is an injectable muscle relaxer. It uses botulinum toxin type A to temporarily paralyse muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and promoting an anti-ageing effect and smooth, younger-looking skin. Wrinkle reduction injections are minimally invasive and are considered a safe, effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. We can also use it on the forehead, the 'elevens' between eyes, smile lines and 'bunny-lines'. It's the same treatment used in the 'lip-flip' for lip enhancement. How long does it take to work? How long it takes for the effects of anti-wrinkle injections to start varies from person to person, but it generally takes around 3 to 14 days before it kicks in. When this happens, you'll begin to see minimised lines and wrinkles. Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections hurt? The needles used for wrinkle reduction are tiny, so they shouldn't be uncomfortable. Of course, everyone's pain threshold is different, so if you have particularly low pain tolerance, it may be worth taking paracetamol around an hour before your appointment. You should avoid ibuprofen and other blood-thinning medication, though, as this can lead to increased bruising. How long do the effects last? The effects of Botox vary from person to person as people metabolise it at different rates. However, on average, the anti-wrinkle injection lasts between 3 and 6 months, after which you'll start to see lines and wrinkles return. What are the Aftercare Dos & Don'ts? Here is a short guide of the do's and don'ts after having anti-wrinkle injections The do's Frown repeatedly for about one hour immediately following the treatment. This will help the treatment be more effective by increasing the uptake by the targeted muscle groups. Then after this time, try to avoid extreme facial expressions for the next 12 hours. Keep upright for the first 4 hours. You can gently apply light makeup after the treatment but use a light dabbing motion instead of rubbing or spreading. The dont's Do not rub or massage the treated area and avoid makeup if possible. Avoid sleeping on your face the first night. Do not exercise or partake in any strenuous activity for the next 12 hrs. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption for the next 24hrs For two weeks, do not have any beauty treatments on your face, e.g. facials facial massage.
