Anti Wrinkle treatments aim to target fine lines and wrinkles. Being a great non-surgical option, the treatment smooths out frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles on the forehead to name a few uses. Anti wrinkle treatments at our clinic can really help to reverse the signs of ageing and bring back your confidence.
Areas that can be treated?
Most of our clients request treatment on one or more of these facial areas:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet or smile lines around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Brow Lift
- Lip Flip
- Gummy Smile Correction
- Bunny Lines
- Nefertiti Neck Lift (Includes Platysma Bands)
Using a tiny needle, small quantities of the protein are injected into the muscles under the skin where wrinkles are most troublesome. The protein temporarily blocks the nerve signal to the muscle, which in turn relaxes the muscles. The nerve that is in place at the time of treatment shrivels away due to lack of stimulation, and a new nerve will grow in its place, and this is when the movement returns.
The initial effects of the treatment start to be felt usually within 48 and 72 hours, but it can take up to 14 days to see the full effect. We generally require you to attend a follow up appointment after 2-3 weeks if you would like your treatment reviewed by our practitioners.
The effects of the treatment usually last between 3 and 5 months, this will vary from person to person. Deep lines will be softened and may take several treatments until the optimum result is seen. Fine lines can almost disappear.
Millions of people worldwide have had treatment and the safety of the product is well established and beyond doubt.
There are a few rare medical conditions such as myasthenia gravis which affect muscles, and people with these conditions cannot have treatment. Treatment is also not recommended in pregnant or breast-feeding women.
The treatments are virtually painless and may cause a minor stinging discomfort.
Once the effects of the treatment have worn off there is no lasting effect, the muscle returns to normal activity.
Side effects are uncommon and temporary – you may experience bruising or tenderness at the injection site, a mild headache and very occasionally the treatment may not work as some people are immune to the effects of treatment.
When administering close to the eye there is a very small chance (significantly less than 1%) of developing a temporary drooping of the eyelid. If this occurs drops can be used to lessen the effect until it wears off naturally.
Many people worry about having a ‘frozen’ face after treatment; this is almost always due to poor injection technique. At KC Aesthetic Clinic, we are extremely experienced, so you can be assured you do not need to worry about being left with a frozen face.
Uncommon side effects may include: – infection, anxiety, numbness, dizziness, inflammation of the eyelid, eye pain, visual disturbances, nausea, dry mouth, skin tightness, swelling (face, eyelid, around the eyes), sensitivity to light, itching, dry skin, muscle twitching, flu syndrome, lack of strength and fever.
Rare side effects that have been reported include: rash, hives, itching, red blotchy skin rash, serious allergic reaction, hair loss, loss of eyebrow, hearing disturbances.
Allergic reactions, difficulties to swallow, speak or breath have been reported when anti wrinkle has been used for uses other than what we would treat in this instance.
If any side effect becomes serious, or any side effect not listed, please tell your healthcare professional.
Treatment should only be administered by medical personnel with the appropriate training, qualification and expertise.
For six hours after treatment we advise that you avoid exercise, hot baths or alcohol as these can increase blood flow and dilute the effect. It is important to avoid touching the area injected, including applying make- up, as this may actually push the product beyond the intended area. We do encourage you to actively use the treated muscles (e.g. frown or squint) frequently during the first hour after treatment, as this may enhance the effect.
Wrinkles normally begin to disappear after two or three days, and full results are usually seen within ten days. On average the effects last three to four months, but with repeated treatments the results may last longer.
We always offer our clients a follow up appointment 2 – 3 weeks after their treatment to ensure we have got the best result possible; any additional treatment needed at this appointment is included in the original cost.
