What happens during Anti-wrinkle Injections treatments?
Anti-wrinkle injections are most often used to treat wrinkles such as frown-lines, ‘11’ lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. During the procedure, the anti-wrinkle injections are inserted into muscles to help them relax and prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections need to be administered by a qualified professional. The right dosage has to be injected into the right place in muscles to avoid complications, so it is crucial to go to a qualified, experienced practitioner for the procedure. Everyone’s face is slightly different, so a knowledge of muscle attachments, where the main body of the muscle lies and where to inject in the muscle is vital. In addition, people have slightly different facial expressions and movement. It means that the desired effect is an interpretation and understanding of the above to achieve the effect you want. This is why an experienced, knowledgeable and appropriately qualified medical professional is the best choice. You will be advised not to consume alcohol, take Aspirin or any anti-inflammatory drugs for a whole week before the procedure.
The procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia, although you do use some topical anaesthetic cream to minimise discomfort. When you receive the injections, you might feel some minor discomfort but that passes quickly. You should start to notice the effects of the anti-wrinkle injections treatment taking hold anytime from the second day up to one or two weeks after treatment.
