WHAT IS ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTION?
Anti-wrinkle injections is a simple non-surgical procedure that relaxes the muscles of your face to smooth deep, persistent lines between eyebrows, on the forehead and around eyes (Crow's feet). One 10-minute treatment – a few tiny injections will keep muscles relaxed for up to 4 months.
WHAT IS BOTULINUM TOXIN?
Bacteria produce Botulinum which is a toxic substance. Then laboratories highly refine, purify, dilute and use it in therapeutic doses. Physicians administer Botulinum or Anti-wrinkle injections by injecting it into a specific facial muscle where it acts as a muscle relaxant.
Who would benefit from this treatment?
Anyone can benefit from botulinum toxin, both men and women. Botulinum is most effective in improving lines or wrinkles due to facial expressions; for example, worry lines or frown lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows. It is because usually over-active muscles cause these lines. And, the treatment stops these muscles from contracting and causing the wrinkles. You should not have treatment with botulinum if you are pregnant, breast-feeding, have a neurological disease or a known hypersensitivity to it.
How long does the treatment take?
In most cases, the treatment will take between 10 and 20 minutes. Effects will begin to appear very quickly within 48 to 72 hours, although the full extent of the treatment may not be visible for up to 10 days. It may take approximately two weeks after the first treatment. Your practitioner will review the effects and discuss any further treatments or anti-wrinkle injections or top-ups.
Is the treatment uncomfortable?
Physicians use very tiny needles and administer only small amounts. As a result, any discomfort is usually minimal and short-lived; that's why there is no need for local anaesthesia.
Are there any adverse effects?
In a small number of cases, there may be some localised bruising, slight swelling, or redness at the site of the injection. It usually disappears very quickly and can respond to the application of a cold pack to the area. A temporary drooping eyelid has also occurred in some patients. See the manufacturer's information for rare side effects. Thousands of patients had anti-wrinkle injections over the last fifteen years. They had it in a controlled laboratory environment, highly purified, and administered in tiny quantities. It has an excellent safety profile. As soon as your treatment is over, you can resume normal daily activities.
Do the effects of this treatment look artificial?
No, unlike some surgical facelifts, this kind of treatment is particular and works only on those muscles that are involved in producing the facial lines that you want to reduce. Other muscles are unaffected, and this means that your usual facial expressions remain the same.
How long will the effects of this treatment last?
Initially, the improvement that you receive from this treatment will last from 3 to 4 months. You will notice a gradual fading of effect, and at this stage, you can return for another treatment if you want to. With repeated treatments with anti-wrinkle injections, the effect lasts longer.
