Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Everything You Need to Know
Anti-wrinkle injections are a common cosmetic treatment to prevent the signs of ageing, usually on the face. They are extremely effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, brows and on the forehead. Anti-wrinkle injections have become increasingly popular over recent years due to being less invasive, affordable and convenient – the procedure is usually quick enough to do on your lunch break. As well as these benefits anti-wrinkle injection results are long lasting, as an average treatment will last between 4 – 6 months.
How do they work?
Anti-wrinkle injections block nerve signals to your muscles, which stops them from contracting. Essentially the treatment causes muscles to relax, softening the look of lines and wrinkles and giving the skin a tighter, smoother appearance. It normally takes between 3 – 7 days for the desired effects to take place.
Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Safe?
Millions of people across the globe have used anti-wrinkle injections for years and, when administered correctly, complications are extremely rare making it a very safe procedure. There are a few known side effects, such as headaches, bruising or swelling, which are usually temporary.
Where can I get Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used for cosmetic treatments and are often used to treat areas in the upper third of your face. Lines around the eyes, brows and on the forehead are probably the most common areas treated by anti-wrinkle injections.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used therapeutically as they are effective in treating excess sweating and muscle spasms.
Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Painful?
