ANTI-WRINKLE

Anti-wrinkle injections are on the frontline of anti-ageing treatments. When injected in small doses into targeted areas, anti-wrinkle injections block the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. They reduce the appearance of lines to produce a look that is fresh, more youthful and, most importantly, natural.

The 3 Basic Areas We Treat:

  • Area 1 - Forehead 

  • Area 2 - Crows Feet (Around the Eyes) 

  • Area 3 - Glabella (EyeBrow Frown)

AFTERCARE ADVICE

The treatment is a quick and safe procedure which has very little impact on usual activity on the day of injection. Tiny injections are delivered to relax the action of the muscles that create excessive movement and leave wrinkles on the skin. To allow the product to work optimally in the target muscle, the following precautions are usually suggested:

  • No rubbing or massaging of the injected area for 6 hours after treatment,

  • No facials for 24 hours.

  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.

  • Keep upright for 6  hours — no lying on your front. Avoid activities such as shoe shopping.

  • Avoid headwear that is tightly fitted across the forehead.

  • Avoid excessive alcohol or medically necessary blood thinning medication before the treatment to prevent bruising.

HOW SOON CAN I EXERCISE?

Normal daily activity can be resumed immediately following treatment. Light exercise can be performed after 4 hours but it is recommended that strenuous activities are avoided for 24 hours.

After 4 hours you may perform light exercise such as:

  • Walking

  • Jogging

  • Upright yoga (avoid any positions that leave you lying flat or upside down)

  • Gardening

It is recommended that you wait 24 hours before attempting any strenuous exercise, including:

  • Weight training

  • Cross training

  • Long distance running

  • Yoga (positions where the body is inverted)

are there any side effects?

In most cases there will be no side effects. However, because everybody’s physiology is different, people can be affected in different ways.

A small minority of people reported the following symptoms:

  • Bruising — For the majority of patients, the area of injection will appear no different. For a small minority, some minor bruising may occur.

  • Bumps — A few minutes after treatment small bumps may be visible on the skin. These will disappear very quickly.

  • Allergies are exceedingly rare

  • Headache — Temporary headache is the most commonly reported symptom following Botox injections, though the numbers of patients who report headaches is very small compared with the amount of treatments performed. Any headache can be treated with usual painkillers. We recommend Paracetamol only. 

HOW SOON CAN I DRINK
ALCOHOL AFTER BOTOX?

Some practitioners advise limiting alcohol in the first 24 hours and for the day prior to treatment. This is because alcohol can thin the blood much like an aspirin, and abstaining can help prevent bruising.

how long does it last &
can I keep having more?

Yes. Botox does not ‘build up’ or accumulate in your system. Recommended treatments are scheduled between 3-4 Months, some people can last longer. Once the effects have worn off it is safe for you to top up treatments in the same area. It is also perfectly safe to have multiple treatments in different areas at the same time.

Once Botox wears off, your muscles will function as they did before the Botox treatment. This means that the wrinkles you smoothed or reduced will slowly begin to appear again; no new wrinkles will have been formed due to the treatment, you will simply be witnessing old wrinkles reappearing.

What if my results are not what I expected?

Results usually develops over 3–5 days to two weeks, at which point a review appointment is offered to check technical and aesthetic results. Please Contact us for a two week review.
