Anti Wrinkle injections, temporarily softens the treated facial muscles, stopping or reducing their contraction . When the muscles relax, the overlying skin remains smooth, unwrinkled and just as you want it, while the untreated facial muscles continue to work in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected. The effects can last for up to 4 months.
We take a cautionary approach to injecting clients, following the idea that “less is best”, starting out with small amounts, increasing as needed/desired.
We use high quality, Irish manufactured anti-wrinkle treatment that is injected into the skin using very fine needles. It may take up to two weeks before the effects are visible. The treatment is temporary and can be expected to last for, on average, two to four months, after which further treatment is required.
Before commencing treatment, Dr. Kevin will arrange a consultation free of charge, in order to set out a treatment plan for the client, during which any unlikely but occasional side effects are discussed. Failure to last the expected period of time should be brought to our attention to allow us to rectify it…purely at the cost of the extra product injected.
These can include:
temporary numbness, redness, swelling or possible bruising at the site of the injection
slight risk of headache (easily treated with paracetamol)
small risk (1% risk) of ptosis (drooping eyelid)
Of interest clients with ongoing recurrent tension headache often report less headache after our anti wrinkle injections.
Anti Wrinkle Treatment is administered by our medical doctor Dr. Kevin McDonald who will carry out an initial consultation with you to get the right treatment to suit your needs.
