Benefits & Misconceptions

Anti wrinkle injections are a simple, safe, affordable and evidenced based way to keep your skin in great condition. There is no downtime, meaning no one needs to know what you’ve had done, and results gradually show over 1-2 weeks, meaning no sudden changes that look overdone or fake.

Millions of people around the world enjoy the benefits of anti wrinkle injections. Both men and women have learned what true evidenced based anti ageing treatment can do to improve their confidence and self satisfaction. Some common questions people ask when considering Anti Wrinkle treatment are:

  • Will people know I’ve had Anti Wrinkle injections?
  • Will Anti Wrinkle injections make me look fake?
  • Do Anti Wrinkle injections hurt?

Reassuringly, the far majority of people have positive experiences with their Anti Wrinkle injections. When done with skill and precision by a properly trained Cosmetic Doctor, no one will notice that you’ve had anything done, but they will notice that you look refreshed and rejuvenated; your results will not look fake; and the treatment will have only mild discomfort, if any.

The Process

Following a comprehensive consultation and the development of a bespoke treatment plan that considers your concerns and personal goals, your Anti Wrinkle treatment will be planned.

Dr. Aaron will assess your wrinkles, and the muscles responsible for them, determine how much treatment you need, and the best areas to inject to get the Best Anti Wrinkle result. Very tiny needles will then be used to inject the product in these predetermined locations.

There may be small ‘mosquito bite’ bumps at the injection sites that settle over 10-15 minutes. You won’t notice anything for a few days, but as the product starts to work by interrupting the communication between the muscles and nerves (Making the muscles relax, and the wrinkles soften), you will see softening of your wrinkles and an improvement in your skin quality. In general, most people see the treatment begin to work within 3-4 days, with a maximum effect in 2-4 weeks. Results will gradually wear off over 3-4 months.

Treatment Areas

Forehead

Horizontal forehead lines progress as we get older, and are due to stretching of the skin, and repetitive contractions of the forehead muscle (Frontalis). Eventually, damage to the structural layer of the skin (The dermis) results in forehead lines, even when you aren’t raising your eyebrows, leaving you looking tired and worn out.

Frown

The lines between your eyebrows (Vertical and horizontal) are your frown lines. Often synonymous with focus and anger, people with overactive procerus and corrugator muscles tend to find their frown lines are quite pronounced, and eventually become present even when you aren’t actively frowning or focusing.

Bunny Lines

The wrinkles across the bridge of the nose are known as ‘Bunny lines’, and are due to the activity of the Nasalis muscle. Sometimes associated with stress and worry, these lines can become present at rest if not treated with Anti Wrinkle injections, making you look older.

Crows Feet

Crows feet are the wrinkles around the outer eye, and are important in facial expression, especially smiling. However eventually, these lines become noticeable at all times, making you look older. When treating this area, Dr Aaron takes a conservative approach so as to preserve your expression (I.e. so you don’t look fake or as if anything has been done), whilst also softening the lines.

Other Anti Wrinkle Treatments

Brow Lift

By selectively weakening the orbicularis oculi muscle (Responsible for pulling the eyebrow down), we can lift the tail of the eyebrows. This can provide a more feminine look, and help with hooding of the upper eyelid skin. It is frequently combined with Dermal Fillers to get better results.

Downturned Mouth Corners

Sagging of the mouth corners is a cardinal sign of ageing. It is caused by multiple changes including loss of volume and sagging skin, but also by overactivity of the Depressor Anguli Oris muscle. By selectively relaxing this muscle, we can help to lift the corners of the mouth up, giving you a rejuvenated appearance.

Pebbled Chin

Pebbled chins are due to overactivity of the chin muscle (Known as mentalis). With age, this muscle tends to become stronger, causing the chin to pucker, and flatten. This is made worse by volume loss in the area. By relaxing the muscle, we chin smooth the skin, and give a softer appearance to the lower face. This can often be combined with Dermal Fillers and Chin Augmentation to get an even better result.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do anti wrinkle injections last?

The results last 3-4 months on average. Other treatment areas may last longer, depending on the site injected, and how much product is used. The results gradually wear off over time.

Is the procedure painful?

Anti wrinkle injections have almost no pain, and are performed using a very tiny needle. Topical anaesthetic can also be used if you are concerned about any discomfort.

Will anyone know I’ve had anti wrinkle injections?

The goal of a well performed anti wrinkle treatment is to have a great result, without looking ‘done’. The goal is for people to think you look refreshed, and not frozen.

What are the potential side effects?

Anti wrinkle injections are very safe. There is a very small risk of bruising.

Eyelid of eyebrow drooping (Known as a ptosis) is an extremely rare side effect. It can be prevented by careful injection techniques, selecting the right person for treatment, and by following your prescribed aftercare instructions. If it does occur, it will wear off on its own, and cause no long term problems.

Who can not have anti wrinkle injections?

Almost everyone can enjoy the benefits of anti wrinkle injections. However those who cannot undergo the treatment include:

  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Those with allergies to the product being used.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

If the correct amount of product is used, you should retain facial movement, but also have a softening of visible wrinkles.

Are there any long term side effects?

There are no significant long term side effects of having Anti Wrinkle injections regularly.

Can men benefit from Anti Wrinkle injections?

Yes! More and more men are discovering the benefit to having Anti Wrinkle treatment, with the far majority being very satisfied with the results. They can help you appear less tired, and more friendly and approachable, with benefits in both professional and social environments.

Is this right for me?

If you have visible fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, or find yourself constantly frowning due to focus at work, then Anti Wrinkle injections may be able to provide you with a refreshed and relaxed appearance.

What does Neurotoxin treatment involve?

The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, and there is only mild discomfort. A very small needle is used to inject the product into specific areas, and some people report a slight stinging sensation as the product is being injected. There tends to be no discomoft or pain after the injection. The results will start to appear after 5 days, but the maximum effect may take up to 2 weeks to become apparent for wrinkle reduction, teeth grinding and anti sweat treatment, and 6 weeks for muscle slimming. Determining the right treatment for you may take time. It is important to gauge the effect of your treatment at the 2 week mark. Your treatment can then be adjusted at your next appointment as needed, to suit your needs.

 

Is Neurotoxin Treatment safe?

Yes. It has been in widespread use for many years, with a great safety profile. As with any medical procedure, there are still risks and side effects. Dr Aaron will discuss these in depth with you during your consultation. Side effects are rare, but include:

  • Mild headache (Transient).
  • Ptosis (Eyebrow/eyelid drop).
  • Smile/mouth movement asymmetry (With lower face treatments).

The majority of side effects of Neurotoxin treatment are self-limiting, and will resolve on their own with no long term harm remaining. This treatment is strictly not performed in people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, having IVF treatment, or planning any of the aforementioned; or in those with underlying neuromuscular conditions including Myaesthenia Gravis and Eaton Lambert syndrome.

 

How long does Neurotoxin treatment last?

Neurotoxin treatments for wrinkle reduction last 3-4 months on average. Over this time, there will be a gradual return to the pre-treatment appearance. Anti sweat treatments and muscle slimming last an average of 6 months. Best results in the long term are achieved with routine treatments, 3-4 times per year. Short term longevity is less important than most people believe. Wrinkle prevention is the most effective anti aging strategy when it comes to Anti Wrinkle treatment. Thus starting early is always the best option. It will not only soften existing lines, but will significantly slow and prevent the development of new wrinkles.

 

 

What should I do before my Neurotoxin Treatment?

There are a few steps to take before your Neurotoxin treatment to ensure the best outcome, and the lowest risk of side effects. They include:

  • Ceasing all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E one week before your treatment (Unless you have been advised to take these by a Medical Practitioner).
  • Avoiding alcohol for 2 days before your treatment.

If you do not adhere to the above your treatment may still proceed, but you will have a higher risk of side effects.

What will happen after my Neurotoxin Treatment?

Following your treatment you will be provided with full aftercare instructions. You will be able to resume most normal activity immediately. The most important instructions are the following:

  • Apply an ice pack gently for any discomfort.
  • Do not touch the treated area for 5 hours.
