What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are composed of a naturally-occurring protein that is injected into wrinkle forming facial muscles. Over time, the solution will disrupt the transmission of signals from nerve to muscle causing the muscle to become more relaxed, resulting in the overlying skin to appear smoother. The treatment takes about 10 minutes and is relatively painless.
What does the treatment involve?
At Beauty Secrets Australia, we complete a full consultation and assessment of all clients prior to any treatment. This is important to determine whether this treatment is suitable for the clients concerns.
The treatment itself involves a small amount of solution being injected into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief, many refer to it as a sharp scratch. After the procedure, it takes about 2-7 days to notice the effect begin and 14 days for the full results to be seen.
How long will the treatment last?
It lasts for approximately 3-4 months depending on the individual and during this time the result will usually wear off slowly allowing expression lines to gradually return to their original appearance.
Is this treatment safe?
Although anti-wrinkle injections have been used for many years, there are times when they should not be administered.
Certain medical conditions and medications
It is very important to let us if you have any past or present health concerns or taking any medications prior to treatment. While undertaking these tyes of procedures, it is important to remember that we are injecting these solutions in to the skin, therefore minor side effects such as redness, bruising and swelling can occur but usually only last a few days.
What areas can treated?
The areas that can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections are forever increasing but a few are:
Eye brow lifts
Teeth grinding and bruxism
After any medical procedure, there are some basic rules to follow to ensure a positive outcome. At Beauty Secrets Australia we provide our patients with a full aftercare guide but some examples include
The first 4 hours
No laying down or having your head down for prologed periods
No application of makeup or touching the treated area
The first 24 hours
No rubbing of the treated area
No strenuous excercise or saunas
The first 2 weeks
No facials or massages to the treated area
No other treatment to the treated area
After these times, normal activities can occur but this advice is given to ensure the product is not moved or to help with reducing the severity of possible bruising or infection, all to ensure a positive outcome.
