How Do Anti-wrinkle Injections Work?
Anti-wrinkle injections can look incredibly natural when it is completed by a medical practitioner. For years Anti-wrinkle injections and filler treatments have been seen as a cosmetic treatment for the stars, however, professional anti-wrinkle injections in Glasgow has never been so popular!
This cosmetic treatment is incredibly successful. As this is a non-surgical practice, Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking signals that travel from nerves to muscles. This cosmetic treatment stops muscles from contracting but does not paralyse them it only relaxes them. Anti-wrinkle injections weaken the muscles which pull the face down, therefore, the muscles which lift the face upwards become more efficient.
Our experienced practitioners have worked with hundreds of patients, making them the most experienced in Glasgow. They have truly mastered the art of injecting the anti-wrinkle substance, leaving patients with smooth, younger looking skin.
What are Anti-wrinkle injections?
We are often asked what anti-wrinkle injections are. At The Berkeley Clinic, we only use safe Anti-wrinkle injections treatments which are licensed for cosmetic use in the UK. The first brand of Anti-wrinkle injections which were used in the UK was Vistabel, shortly after that Azzalure was created and most recently, Bocouture.
There is much debate over what brand works best, however, they are different drugs which each come with their own clinical benefits.
You will find that different Anti-wrinkle injections practitioners will use different brands. Your medical practitioner will prescribe the form of anti-wrinkle injections which are most suited to your skin and body.
How Often Should Anti-wrinkle injections be applied?
Again this varies from patient to patient and most anti-wrinkle injections patients will find that the results will begin to wear off around 3 months after the treatments. Keep in mind that when the muscle movement begins to increase, it may take another month before the lines and wrinkles begin to show.
If you would like to upkeep the treatment it would be at this point that you should think about having further treatment. We would advise that in the first year of anti-wrinkle injections treatment, you may need to have the treatment done approximately 3 times.
After the first year of treatments, it is suggested that you have anti-wrinkle injections applied only twice per year, allowing muscle recovery time. If you are continually having the treatment, it may only need to be applied once a year. Anti-wrinkle injections kicks in immediately, one of the main benefits of having the cosmetic procedure completed.
What Areas Are Treated With Anti-wrinkle injections?
The majority of our patients enquire about having Anti-wrinkle injections applied around the frown lines. Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce the signs of aging, giving the face a smoother appearance.
Why is anti-wrinkle injections used in this area of the face? The muscles which we use to frown can create lines. These lines can be relaxed with anti-wrinkle injections. The toxin also prevents this effect, giving patients a fresher appearance.
Are Anti-wrinkle injections the same as Filler?
This is a question our practitioners are often asked and the answer is no. Both cosmetic treatments come with their own advantages. Anti-wrinkle injections target facial muscles, whereas filler adds volume to the face.
We have previously mentioned the products which are used when Anti-wrinkle injections are applied, however, products like Juvederm or Restalyne can be used to fill areas of the face such as the lips.
It may be advised that if a particular line or wrinkle is too deep to be treated with Anti-wrinkle injections, the filler can temporarily diminish its appearance. The results with dermal fillers tend to last for nine months on average.
Should I Avoid Doing Anything after Anti-wrinkle injections?
The advice that the majority of practitioners give is no, however, you should always have this discussion with your practitioner. This will be discussed during your Anti-wrinkle injections consultation.
At our anti-wrinkle injections clinics in Glasgow, your practitioner will complete the procedure precisely. With this treatment, there's barely any downtime, you can even have the procedure completed during a lunch break as the needle marks fade within minutes.
It is suggested that you wait 40 minutes before doing any activity so there's no bruising.
Who Should Get Anti-wrinkle injections?
The majority of patients are suitable for Anti-wrinkle injections treatment. The main advice we would give anyone who is considering Anti-wrinkle injections is to be realistic with the treatment. Anti-wrinkle injections is an excellent way of averting fine wrinkles, however, it should not be applied when unnecessary. Anti-wrinkle injections should look natural on patients of all ages, this is something that we believe in at The Berkeley Clinic, as we want our patients to leave happy with the results of their anti-wrinkle injections treatment.
