Frequently Asked Questions:
Are anti-wrinkle injectables safe?
Anti-wrinkle injectables are made from a drug called Botulinum Toxin which has been FDA approved and used for both medical and cosmetic purposes for over 20 years with no known adverse effects.
Will I be able to move my face?
Practitioners target small specific muscles that are responsible for unwanted lines and wrinkles only. This means normal facial expressions such as smiling, frowning or looking surprised will be unaffected. During your consultation your practitioner will talk you through how the treatment can be used for subtle effects so no one need know your secret.
How does it work?
When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent. When the muscles in our face move, a message is sent from the brain via nerves to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables are a natural protein that works by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
Do anti-wrinkle injectables really prevent ageing?
It has been reported that, if used regularly, anti-wrinkle injectables can delay and prevent the signs of ageing. As we know facial movement such as squinting and frowning can cause lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin restricts facial muscle movement which means signs of ageing can be prevented.
What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injectables?
Anti-wrinkles injectables are mainly used for the face. Forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet lines around the eyes, and between the eyebrows and lifting the eyebrows are the most popular areas.
What happens after treatment?
You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after leaving the clinic, although it’s important to avoid anything strenuous for 24 hours auch as going to the gym. Side effects are rare, but occasionally some clients experience bruising, but this usually fades quickly.
