There are a few tips you should take into account before you have your wrinkle relaxing injections. These include avoiding alcohol and medications for at least a week before any anti-wrinkle treatments are carried out. This can help to prevent other substances affecting the skin and, therefore, the treatment.
All this information is something we will go through with you at your initial consultation. We will discuss your medical history and, if there is any reason why you should not have the wrinkle relaxing injections, we will tell you immediately. If you are taking antibiotics you should ensure that both our registered nurse knows about the medication and your doctor knows that you are planning to have the anti-wrinkle treatments. Generally, antibiotics should not be mixed with this toxin.
Anti-wrinkle treatments known as wrinkle relaxing injections – How does it work?
There are various names given to the substance used in the anti-wrinkle treatments.This is injected into the muscle that is to be treated and it prevents it from contracting which ensures that lines and wrinkles are then minimised. The needle is very fine for accurate use and you should not notice any pain from the wrinkle relaxing injections, although there may be some discomfort. Any sensation from the needle soon goes away after the wrinkle relaxing injections but if you have any concerns our registered nurse will be on hand to discuss them with you.
Anti-wrinkle treatments known as wrinkle relaxing injections – what is needed for recovery?
Generally, you can simply carry on with daily life after the any wrinkle relaxing injections. However, there are some activities that you should avoid including strenuous exercise. It is normal to get a headache after the treatment and you may even notice a little bruising. In the vast majority of cases, these symptoms soon subside and you will be feeling like your old self again – only with a younger look!
When having the anti-wrinkle treatments you may find that you do not fully notice the results for around a week after treatment and you can see the best results around a fortnight afterwards. This is how long the wrinkle relaxing injections take to settle and it is why we advise you to allow a gap of this length before your follow-up appointment.
The follow-up is essential for us to check on your progress and make sure that the wrinkle relaxing injections have been successful. We are also on hand during this time to address any concerns that you may have and give further advice on aftercare. It is in our best interests for you to look your best so do not hesitate to ask us if you have any questions.
