Anti-Wrinkle injections have been used for more than 20+ years around the world, medically and aesthetically. Over the past 20 years these treatments have become increasingly popular leading to various techniques being enhanced to deliver a treatment with exceptional results.
Botulinum Toxin A is injected in to various muscle in the body to stop signals being sent through the nerves to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles where we don't want them. As we get older our skin gets damaged from mother nature's elements, with age it loses its elasticity as the collagen depletes (collagen give your skin it’s bounce), which in turn allows your skin to develop lines, wrinkles and indents. These injections relax the muscles beneath the skin giving a person that flawless look.
The most common treatment areas for anti-wrinkle injections are:
Once these injections are administered, the treatment will start to work within a few days but won't fully develop for 21-30 days (dependant on brand). Everyones body is different and until treatment is administered the reaction time can not be determined. These injections are not permanent and can be re-administered every 12 weeks (due to the licensing laws) to keep that wrinkle free status.
Dependant on the strength of the individuals muscles then using injectables overtime can release the muscles by weakening them, making it less easier to cause the wrinkles. It is important to point out that not all wrinkles can be removed but we can definitely make them a lot softer in this instance.
Expectations are the most difficult issues to overcome between practitioner and client but together great things can be achieved. To date, there are very little long term side effects with anti-wrinkle & dermal-filler injections, provided it is administered by a qualified practitioner. Most people associate injections with pain and therefore a phobia can or already have developed but with an anti-wrinkle injection the needles are so tiny and at most may cause a localised sting for a second or two. Once treatment has been administered you will be able to carry on with your normal daily routine. Some light bruising may develop at the sight of injection but will dissipate shortly after treatment.
CLIENT NOTICE: All anti-wrinkle injections are prescription only medication (POM) and therefore should only be administered by someone medically trained such as a nurse, doctor or dentist. Here at Peppermint Aesthetics no staff are currently Independent Prescribers but are medically trained to carry out this treatment. We employ an external prescriber to fullfil our prescription requirements.
