Anti Wrinkle Treatments
Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular non-surgical procedures performed in Ireland today and have completely revolutionized the treatment of ageing skin.
They work by relaxing various muscles which cause wrinkles to appear on the face. These type of injections, commonly known as Botox, have been used for over 20 years and are both a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles of the upper face such as frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.
The treatment takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and takes full effect up to 14 days after treatment, resulting in a fresher, younger looking appearance which lasts approximately 3 months.
Are there any possible side effects with Botulinum Toxin Injections?
The most common side effect is minor bruising at the injection sites, but this bruising usually disappears after a few days. Possible other side effects can include heaviness of the brow, drooping of eyelids (due to inappropriate placement of the injection) and asymmetry.
All side effects are temporary and quite rare in experienced hands.
Who is suitable for anti-wrinkle injections?
Anyone under 65 wishing to improve their facial expression wrinkles is suitable, with the exception of the following:
– Those who have diseases that affect the muscles and nerves.
– Clients with known allergies to any Botulinum Toxin product.
– Those with breathing problems (such as asthma or emphysema), swallowing problems or bleeding problems.
– Women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, or women who are nursing or plan to nurse.
