FAQ's


How do Anti Wrinkle Injections Work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a simple, nonsurgical procedure whereby tiny injections are accurately placed to relax specific facial muscles that are responsible for wrinkles due to persistent underlying tension and repeated contractions. The relaxing of these muscles results in a much smoother and fresher appearance to the treated area.
Made from a natural, purified protein, anti-wrinkle injections have a 30 year safety profile in clinical practice and used effectively in more than 20 million procedures worldwide.

How do I know if Anti Wrinkle Injections are right for me?

Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors – environmental, hereditary, and lifestyle. The deepest lines and creases are caused by repetitive gestures, such as frowning in concentration or crinkling your eyes in laughter. These lines can create a tired or stern appearance or make the face looked aged beyond its years.
If looking your best is important and your face isn’t reflecting how youthful you feel on the inside, the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections are there for you! Now not just the treatment of choice for celebrities, people from all walks of life enjoy the rejuvenating effects of these injections. Crows feet, and frown lines disappear, leaving behind a seamless, youthful you – full of expression, full of life, without the wear.

Are there any people that shouldn’t have this treatment?

Anti-wrinkle injections are not suitable for people with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients or any neuromuscular disorder. They are also not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
During your consultation, your treating medical professional will assess your medical history and skin for suitability for treatment.

What to expect after treatment?

No downtime for recovery is required with anti-wrinkle injections. In fact, you may return to work or normal activity immediately. The effects of your treatment can be seen in as little as 3 days following you treatment and the results of a relaxed and refreshed appearance will last up to four months.
Optimal dosing is an important part of your treatment process and will ensure optimal results and lasting effects. Dosing is individualized for each patient, in order to achieve the desired effects.
When receiving treatments with all injectable products we recommend that you avoid massaging or applying pressure to the area that has been treated for a few days following treatments. It is also recommended that only mineral make-up should be worn.
While you are likely to experience minimal or no side effects following your treatments, the potential side effects may include redness to the injection site, pain, firmness, swelling, lumps and bumps, bruising, itching and discolouration.
In most cases these side effects are temporary and will resolve within a week. We ask any client who is experiencing any side effects to contact one of our clinics so our medical team can follow up to ensure maximum safety and satisfaction.
