Typically results last between 3-6 months. This depends on the individual and also the number of treatments you have had in the area in the past.
What are the side effects?
The side effects of anti-wrinkle injections are uncommon, self limiting and usually localised to the area that has been treated.
Side effects if you experience any may include, but are not limited to headaches, bruising, localised swelling, drooping eyelid/eyebrow, nausea, muscle weakness,numbness or pins and needles feeling.
How to lower the risks?
Although you cannot eliminate all clinical risks, you can limit the chance of things going wrong by choosing a qualified and experienced practitioner.
We take additional steps to minimise any side effects, by keeping up to date with the latest techniques, knowledge and equipment to facilitate the safe administration of anti-wrinkle injections.
To minimize any bruising we use ACCUVEIN. Accuvein illuminates invisible veins in the face, which can clearly be avoided during injections.
