Fine lines under the eyes, Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles – they are all the dreaded tell-tale signs of aging. But now, thanks to anti-wrinkle injections, you can achieve a well-rested, youthful look which is subtle, yet incredibly effective. We can’t stop the clock on aging, but we have the power to slow it down. Anti-wrinkle injections are on the frontline of anti-ageing treatments. When injected in small doses into targeted areas, anti-wrinkle injections block the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. They reduce the appearance of lines to produce a look that is fresh, more youthful and, most importantly, natural.
Our team of medical professionals is led by Dr. Aarti Shah & Dr. Aakash Shah. Our highly qualified experts are deft in safely delivering anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Their deep understanding of facial aesthetics in both women and men means they produce a look that is more youthful yet natural.
An anti-wrinkle injectable is administered with a very fine needle, and takes only a few seconds. It’s the tiny prick of the needle for a moment, and most patients tolerate it very well. Several injections are given into the area you’re concerned about, for example the frown lines between the brows. If you are highly sensitive, a topical anaesthetic gel can be applied first. Dermal fillers are administered the same way, though take a little longer, depending on the area of the face being treated.
It varies by patient, but as a rule, expect to see the results within 2 – 5 days as the muscle beneath the skin of the frown line relaxes. Once it does, the difference will be noticeable to you as you know every inch and line of your own face. The results are subtle and natural, making you look well-rested and more youthful.
Anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers are tried and tested in millions of treatments globally and are safe and effective when administered by a doctor who has correct understanding of the underlying facial musculature.Side effects can include minor bruising at the site of the injection, so don’t take any medication that thins the blood (like aspirin) prior to your treatment, as this increases the risk of bruising.
Each patient responds differently but in general, anti-wrinkle injectables last between 2 and 4 months before the relaxing effect on the muscle wears off. Dermal fillers last for a longer period depending on the type of filler being used, and the area of the face being treated.
No. Our doctors study your facial musculature and administer the right amount of product for you, for the most natural and subtle of results. The ‘frozen’ or unnatural appearance you sometimes see on celebrities happen as a result of over-treatment.
Evidence suggests that as the muscle is trained to relax and the overlying skin releases its wrinkle that it does help in the prevention of further lines from forming in that area. It’s the repeated contraction of the facial muscle whilst making an expression like smiling or frowning that caused the wrinkle in the first place, so once the muscle relaxes, wrinkles don’t form in the treated area until the effects of the injection wear off. Regular treatments mean the muscle stays relaxed, and wrinkles are kept at bay.
Botulinum toxin has been known for more than a century, but not until 1980 was the toxin found to be useful for a number of medical problems. Injections of this toxin have been used in cosmetic medicine since the early 90’s. The toxin has the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Anti Wrinkle Injections have also been used to treat medical problems such as excessive sweating and migraines. Almost every celebrity has been associated with Anti Wrinkle Injections, very often for taking its uses to the extreme and taking on that startled, surprised look! Careful consideration is called for before you progress and the best advice is to visit a highly reputable and experienced clinic, renowned for good practice and subtle results, such as Radiant Clinic. Anti-Wrinkle Injectables must be administered by a medical doctor.
