FAQs about Injectables
How do anti-wrinkle injections 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 expression 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.
When to use 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 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 excessive sweating and muscle spasms on the palms or armpits.
Are Muscle Relaxant Injections Painful?
Anti wrinkle injections are usually tolerable in terms of pain and you won’t feel too much discomfort. A fine needle is used to inject the skin and the majority of people will only feel a slight discomfort, with most being able to easily tolerate the treatment.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Anti wrinkle injections are a relatively quick treatment and can often be done on your lunch break. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your appointment will usually last around 30 minutes.
Are Anti Wrinkle Injections Safe?
Millions of people across the globe have used anti-wrinkle injections for years and, when administered correctly in a cosmetic clinic, 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.
