What are Anti Wrinkle injectables?

Wrinkles can make you look older than you really are, which in turn may effect your confidence. While you can’t stop the natural aging of the skin, there are solutions that can help reduce its effects. Among the many solutions our surgery offers anti wrinkle injections (botox or dysport). These are a small amount of a purified medicine that is injected into the muscles to relax them and thereby reduce wrinkles.

Anti wrinkle injections are ideal for a person wanting to minimize or soften deep lines resulting in making their face look fresher and younger-looking. Our anti-wrinkle injections are less invasive that many other cosmetic procedures, making them a more convenient and a more conservative option to smooth out those hard lines.

Areas often improved are frown lines, forehead lines and smile lines around the eyes (crows feet).

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used around the world for over forty years, and remains one of the most popular and effective ways of treating facial wrinkles. As with the other temporary cosmetic treatments the patient is able to decide on the frequency of any additional treatment. If the patient discontinues treatment, their muscles and skin soon return to the pre-treatment state.
Anti-wrinkle injections typically last approximately 3-4 months, though this is variable, depending on the area treated, the patient’s skin, the patient’s muscle strength, the amount of sun, the dose used and the age of the patient. Smoking and constant vigorous exercise eg; training for a triathlon may greatly reduce the time the injections last. Some patients do report having a longer effect for example five months after Botox / Dysport is injected.
The effects of the treatment usually becomes apparent after about three days, with the full effect being achieved after about two weeks. After this time our team will conduct a follow up assessment to determine whether any “top up” treatment is required. Top ups are often required with stronger than average muscles as well as deeper, more severe lines.
