YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
You can receive injections in numerous areas of your face, but for the best results we advise injections in the muscles in the upper facial areas, such as the horizontal lines over your forehead, the little crow’s feet near your eyes and the line between your eyebrows. You can also opt to have the fine lines around your mouth diminished.
Anti wrinkles injections are not only very effective in reducing the signs of aging, they are also very safe. If you decide to opt for this procedure you can expect a reduction in the wrinkles and fine lines afflicting your face.
Anti wrinkle injections are a great option if you’re seeking a convenient and effective method of improving your appearance, here’s why:
We offer an initial consultation to establish your suitability, we can then discuss your requirements in terms of how many areas we will treat.
We will provide you with all the necessary information on the procedure, but it’s a good opportunity to ask questions and find out what to expect. Anti wrinkle injections take about twenty minutes to administer, you can expect to feel a “pinching” sensation as we inject you, but the procedure is relatively pain free.
You should start to see results within two weeks, but may notice a positive change sooner. Many of our clients report fine lines have smoothed out, refreshing the face (so it looks as though they have had a great night’s sleep)! The results will last for approximately three to six months.
Anti wrinkle injections force toxins to bind with muscle, thus reducing its activity. This leads to the softening or elimination of lines (depending on line depth and muscle strength before treatment begins). Following anti wrinkle injections, you can expect skin to look refreshed, more youthful and freer from lines and wrinkles.
You can have anti wrinkle injections in numerous areas, some of the most popular include:
Horizontal frown lines run across the forehead, and usually appear when you raise your eyebrows. These lines can be softened with anti wrinkle injections to the forehead.
Vertical frown lines tend to appear between the eyebrows, this is usually caused by overuse of the muscles in this area. The vertical lines can be quite deep and distinct, resembling a number eleven - (hence their nickname, the 11’s)! Those with prominent vertical lines complain that they feel they look angry all of the time - which is certainly not the case.
The term crow’s feet describe the fine lines that appear at the corners of your eyes. They are sometimes more prevalent when you smile, or are resting. The depth of the lines can vary depending on muscle use, age, gender and ethnicity. If you have spent lots of time outdoors in the sunshine you might find the lines are even more pronounced. The key for effective treatment of crow’s feet Is to start early, preventative measures do make a difference. If the lines are continuous and carry on to the cheekbone you may require a combination of anti wrinkle injections and filler - these treatments will work together to boost volume and re-instate smoothness. Crow’s feet may become more prominent if you experience a loss of volume around the middle of the face and cheek area (as this pulls on the area around the corner of the eye). Anti wrinkle injections moor up the skin, providing a platform for the skin to sit on and alleviating sagging.
Bunny lines show up when you scrunch up your nose, and they can be smoothed and improved via small injections to the side of the nose. You can expect to see results in around two weeks and they will last for between three and four months.
Smokers lines appear just above the top lip, as the name suggests they are prominent in smokers (but non smokers can also suffer from them). As we get older our collagen banks become less effective and our levels of elastin reduce, resulting in creping or laxity, and making lines more noticeable. Small injections can be given above the top lip in order to smooth out lines, preventing them from getting deeper. Results can usually be seen after two weeks. We sometimes advise a combination of treatments, such as micro needling, PRP, dermal filler and profhilo. It’s important to bear in mind that the area above your lip is on the thin side, and the results should look natural rather than over-worked.
This is a relatively painless procedure and usually takes around thirty to forty-five minutes.
Dr. Altona will speak with you in depth to ascertain your medical history, fully understand your needs and expectations, and make sure anti wrinkle injections are appropriate for you. As Botox is a prescription only medicine it is imperative that you have a face to face consultation with a licensed prescriber (doctor, dentist, or nurse prescriber), in order to assess whether you are suitable for treatment.
You can expect to see a marked improvement within just a few days, and the lines should continue to improve over the course of a month. Clinical trials inform us that nearly 90% of women and men rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better within one month of receiving treatment. Following treatment, the skin should look smoother and less wrinkled, and you need not worry about the rest of your face being affected. Untreated areas will be able to move freely as normal – you will still be able to frown, smile and laugh (but with less obvious wrinkles)!
Anti wrinkle injections are given with a very tiny needle. Therefore, discomfort is fleeting and minimal. The area can be numbed with an ice pack or with a local anaesthetic cream, and the whole procedure only takes around ten minutes. Following the injection, you shouldn’t feel any soreness, and many clients are in and out of our clinic without requiring any downtime (although we never rush you – take your time)! You will be fine to drive straight after the procedure and can go about your day-to-day business.
You can expect anti wrinkle injections to take effect within seven to ten days, however it can take up to two weeks for the treatment to reach optimum efficacy. Results tend to last between three and six months, and follow up treatment is advisable after this period if the desired effect is to be maintained.
