You should be aware that the risks with this type of anti-wrinkle treatment are very low. However, the anti-wrinkle treatment sometimes known as wrinkle relaxing injections consists of a toxin which is injected into the muscle and is considered to be more of a medical procedure than a spa treatment. We always ensure that this anti-ageing treatment is carried out with the right preparation including an initial consultation and a number of lifestyle measures being put into place before any wrinkle relaxing injections take place. We will advise that features such as alcohol and aspirin should be removed from your daily routine as these have been known to make side effects worse, and the toxin can also interact with some antibiotics. By following our procedures and advice you can make the aftercare of this anti-wrinkle treatment a great deal easier.
What should I expect during the anti-wrinkle treatment also known as wrinkle relaxing injections?
During the anti-wrinkle treatment itself you may notice a stinging or burning when the wrinkle relaxing injections takes place. The needles are very thin and precise so the substance is delivered directly to the right area and any discomfort is over very quickly. In many cases the patient will choose to take things easy for a while after their anti-wrinkle treatment, although there will be very little restriction on what you can and cannot do.

When will I be able to see the results from my anti-wrinkle treatment?
You should not expect to see results immediately. This type of treatment needs to settle so you do need to allow at least two weeks to see its’ full effect. You may be disappointed that you do not see the full effect immediately but this is normal. After two weeks you will start to notice the effects of your anti-wrinkle treatment. With this type of anti-wrinkle treatment you will find that it can last anything from three to six months, depending upon the area being treated and other individual factors.
