Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular non-surgical procedures preformed in Ireland today and have completely revolutionised the treatment of aging 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.
How does the treatment work?
Anti-wrinkle injections involve small injections of a substance called Botulinum Toxin directly into the muscle which causes a temporary relaxation of the facial muscles and prevents the formation of wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin injections will smooth existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.
Treatment takes 15 minutes, 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 drooping of eyelids (due to inappropriate placement of the injection) and asymmetry. The good thing is that these side effects are minimal and temporary, and also rare.
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.
Dermal & Lip Fillers
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment aimed at reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment involves the injection of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body, to areas of the face and/or the lips in order to add volume and treat lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are highly effective at restoring the fullness and plumpness of the area they are applied to, thus giving a more youthful and fuller appearance. They are used to fill deep lines, creases and wrinkles and also to add volume to thin or wrinkled lips.
