All you need to know about Anti-Wrinkle Injections at Therapie
Anti-Wrinkle Injectables are the most effective way of reducing the signs of aging by lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This non-invasive procedure will not only reduce the appearance of lines on the face, but it will also help to prevent further wrinkles from developing, by causing the facial muscles to relax.
What is Botox?
Botox is a naturally purified protein that has been used worldwide for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes. There has been extensive clinical research into Botox over the last 40 years, making it the most researched drug on the market. It is most commonly used as an agent that relaxes facial muscles, which in turn will lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Once injected, it will block nerve signals from reaching certain muscles. The muscle will become relaxed, so that it does not contract, causing any wrinkles to become softer in appearance.The treatment is extremely effective on the forehead, on frown lines and on crow’s feet (lines around the eye area). The result is a rejuvenated and refreshed look.
Will it hurt?
At Therapie Clinic we strive to ensure that every treatment is as comfortable as possible for our clients. All of our medical practitioners have received training to the highest standards, ensuring you will receive the utmost professional care. We use the smallest needles possible to inject a small amount of Botox underneath the skin and into the muscle. The treatment is mostly painless, however, sometimes you may experience an immediate, sharp pinch, but this will last only 1-2 seconds.
Are there any side effects?
Due to the extensive research into the drug, which has an incredibly strong safety profile behind it, the side effects of Botox are very minimal. The most common side effects can include some light bleeding, which goes hand in hand with the use of a small needle under the skin. You may also experience some redness and a small amount of swelling, but this will generally be resolved after 20-30 minutes after injection. Slight bruising can often occur after injections are administered. This may not occur every time and is largely dependent on the skin type, anatomy and any medications you may be taking.
When will I see results?
The effects of the Anti-Wrinkle Treatment are not immediately apparent. They will start to take effect after 1-2 days, when the muscles will begin to relax. You will see some results within 7 days, however, the best results will be visible about 2-3 weeks after the injections have been administered.
How long will it last?
The effects of Anti-Wrinkle Injections will usually last between 3-6 months. When the Botox begins to wear off, the movement in the muscle will gradually return. Subsequently, lines and wrinkles will begin to become visible and will need to be treated again. With continued treatment, lines and wrinkles will appear less prominent with time. This is as a result of the muscle shrinking and becoming less contracted. Clients with deeper and more etched in lines will require more treatments. This will normally be every 3-4 months within the course of a year to a year and a half to achieve a fresh and more youthful look, and to completely eradicate those lines.
Can Botox be used for preventative measures?
Absolutely! Botox is very commonly used to not only treat lines and wrinkles, but also to prevent them and lessen the effects over time. Because Botox relaxes the muscle, it prevents fine lines from being formed. Finer wrinkles will disappear with the use of Anti-Wrinkle Injections over time.
