What areas can you get Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

In the Aesthetic field, Anti-Wrinkle Injections are used to treat:

  • Horizontal Forehead Lines.
  • Frown Lines – 11 lines between the eyebrows.
  • Crow’s Feet – Around the eyes.
  • Bunny Lines – Scrunch lines on the nose.

As Anti-Wrinkle Injections are prescriptive medications, they are administered by medical professionals. Careful consideration and medical clearance will be undertaken before treatment. The best advice is to visit a highly reputable clinic with highly experienced medical professionals, renowned for good practice and subtle results, such as Therapie Clinic.

How does it work?

Anti-Wrinkle treatments relax muscles that are active when our faces are animated. These lines are known as dynamic lines and are caused by frowning, smiling and other daily facial expressions. Over time, dynamic lines cause the loss in collagen in the skin, deepening the lines and turning them into what’s known as static lines. Anti-Wrinkle treatments do not work on static lines, therefore prevention is the key.

When will I see results?

You will start to notice your results appear 5-7 days post treatment and the full effect should appear after 2 weeks.

How many areas do I need?

This will be based on personal preference. Our medical professionals can advise further based on your preference.

Is the treatment painful?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections have minimal pain, they are administered with very fine needles and take only a few seconds to undertake. It will be a tiny prick of a needle for a moment, most patients tolerate it very well.

Can I have the treatment while pregnant or breastfeeding?

You cannot have any injectable treatment carried out while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Can I have Anti-Wrinkle injections and Dermal filler together?

Yes, you can have anti-wrinkle injections and Dermal filler carried out together.

How often can I have the treatment carried out?

You must wait a minimum of 12 weeks in between your Anti- wrinkle Injection treatments.

What are the possible side effects of Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections have a very strong safety profile and have been used for over 30 years in the Aesthetic field with millions of treatments globally every year. They are safe and effective when administered by a highly trained medical doctor who has a high level of expertise in this field.

Most side effects associated with these treatments are mild and transient, they include:

Mild swelling at the injection site.
Mild tenderness and bruising at or around the injection site.
Mild headache.
A mild feeling of heaviness.

How long do Anti-Wrinkle Injections last?

The longevity of treatment can be affected by your metabolism, bulk muscle and lifestyle. Each patient responds differently, but on average anti-wrinkle injections last between 2 and 4 months before the full relaxing effect on the muscle wears off completely.

Anti-wrinkle results wear off gradually, the full relaxation result will last out to 6 weeks post-treatment, after which a tiny bit of movement slowly creeps back in; however muscles are not back to full functionality until the 2 to 4 month mark when re-treatment is recommended.

When can I fly after having Anti-Wrinkle Injections carried out?

You can fly 48 hours after having Anti-Wrinkle Injections carried out.

The other incredibly popular treatment is Dermal Filler – at Thérapie Clinic we use the Juvederm brand.

Juvederm is a high-end FDA-approved Dermal Filler made in France. It is a Hyaluronic Acid gel which is a naturally occurring substance, it is essentially a sugar gel that is injected into the skin to subtly correct some of the ageing features on the face. It can also be used to naturally enhance lips and to provide subtle contours to the face.

What are the pre-treatment guidelines for Anti-Wrinkle Treatments?

    Please let us know if you have any planned travel in the next 4 weeks. You cannot have treatments if you are feeling at all unwell.
  • Please ensure that you:
    Have no cold sores (if you are prone to cold sores please discuss with your treating Medical Professional)
  • Are not pregnant/trying to get pregnant/not breastfeeding.
  • You must inform your treating Medical Professional about any medications or dietary supplements you are taking, some medications can adversely affect the way Anti-Wrinkle Injections work and can increase your risk of bruising.
  • You must refrain from taking any painkiller medication that contains Ibuprofen (this only relates to any medication that is “not prescribed by a Doctor”). Ibuprofen may contribute to bruising and is best avoided for 7 days before treatment.
  • You must refrain from taking Alcohol and Vitamin supplements including; St. John’s Wort, Fish oils, Garlic, Gingko Biloba, and Vitamins A-E, these may all contribute to bruising and are best avoided for 7 days pre-treatment.
  • You must come with no makeup on the day of treatment, you must not reapply makeup for 24 hours in order to reduce the risk of infection or irritation at the injection sites.
Wat are the post-care guidelines for anti-wrinkle treatments?

You may have some red bumps post-treatment at the injection sites, these should resolve within a period of 1 hour.

You must place no pressure on the treatment area for a period of 8 hours post-treatment.

You must stay upright for a period of 4 hours post-treatment.

Make-up must not be worn for a period of 24 hours post-treatment in the treated area.

Avoid alcohol, vigorous exercise, and extreme temperatures for 24 hours post-treatment.

If a bruise does occur it may take a few days to appear and can take up to 10 days to resolve. Arnica can be helpful in clearing bruising. You must avoid Ibuprofen and alcohol for 24-48 hours post-treatment as this can increase bruising.

Your Anti-Wrinkle Treatment will start to take effect within 1-3 days post-treatment, visible results can be seen on day 7, and full results can be seen on day 14.

A feeling of heaviness in the area of treatment can be experienced in the first week post-treatment, this is a result of your Anti-Wrinkle Injections taking effect and your muscles starting to relax.
If this is your first Anti-Wrinkle Injections you will be contacted 2 weeks post-treatment when the product has taken full effect to assess your treatment results, a small adjustment may be required at this stage if necessary to perfect results.
