You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions to make sure you are fully aware of the treatment plan. Your next appointment will be made within this consultation appointment Anti-wrinkle injections commonly known by many as the brand name Botox, work by causing the facial muscles to relax, smoothening the appearance of wrinkles that occur naturally with age and help prevent further ageing of the skin. Why do I have wrinkles? Through regular facial expression, the muscles of the face contract. Over the years this can create lines and wrinkles in the face that can become present at rest. This process can be further accelerated by other factors including stress, sun exposure, smoking, alcohol intake and hormonal influences. During facial expression, a message is sent via nerves from the brain to the muscles instructing them to contract. How do anti-wrinkle injection work? Anti-wrinkle injections can block this message meaning the muscles are unable to crease the skin. This treatment has a wide range of applications to treat the full face. The most commonly requested indication for anti-wrinkle injections is to smoothen out lines on the forehead, frown lines and lines around the eyes. How long will the results last? Everyone is different. Anti-wrinkle injections typically last 3-6 months. As the effects wear off muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles reappear and require re-treatment. However, with time the lines and wrinkles appear less severe. Will I still look like myself? or will I look Frozen? The ‘Frozen’ look is typically associated with the use of too much anti-wrinkle injection in one area. Every course of treatment is custom-tailored to the individual. During the free pre-treatment consultation, Hannah can discuss the areas requiring treatment to achieve your desired look. What are the side effects? Following treatment, you will be provided with verbal and written aftercare instructions to minimise your risk of side effects. Temporary minor bruising is a common side effect. Less commonly reported are headaches that last 24-48hours after treatment.
