Anti-wrinkle injections are currently the world’s most popular non-surgical, aesthetic treatment. This is because – as well as giving you a more youthful appearance in a single treatment – they are minimally invasive, require little to no downtime, and are backed by a proven safety record.
The injections are ideal for expressive lines and wrinkles, which is why they are most commonly used to smooth away forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Wrinkle reducing treatment is a fantastic option for both men and women across a broad age range, but we will ask you to come into Bamboo Aesthetics for an initial consultation so that we can talk to you about your needs and take a full medical history to determine whether this is a suitable treatment for you.
The fine needles we use not only help to prevent scarring but also make the procedure surprisingly comfortable; results are usually seen within five to 14 days, depending on your individual response. Our breath-taking results have led to a very high customer satisfaction level and have made Bamboo Aesthetics a market leader in anti-wrinkle treatment in Cardiff, Wales, and beyond.
Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the signals from your nerves that tell specific facial muscles to contract. It’s the repeated movement and contraction of your facial muscles that causes expressive lines and wrinkles to occur, a bit like creases in the material of your clothes. By temporarily stopping certain facial muscles from contracting, it helps to smooth out your overlying skin and minimise the appearance of existing lines. It can also help to prevent new lines and wrinkles from developing.
You might sometimes hear people refer to these anti-wrinkle injections as Botox, which has become a kind of all-encompassing name for wrinkle reducing injections. However, there are several brands of nerve blocking, anti-wrinkle injections, all of which are available as prescription-only medication. It is also important to note that this is just one method of reducing the lines and wrinkles on your face – after your initial consultation, we may recommend a choice of treatments to help your skin look younger and smoother.
Most people find that it takes between five to 14 days for the full results of their anti-wrinkle injection treatment to be seen.
One of the many reasons that anti-wrinkle injections are popular is that they are long-lasting but not permanent, which means that we can tweak and adjust the results to reflect your current needs with each treatment. You should see the results of your treatment for three to four months before you need a top-up.
As anti-wrinkle injections are categorised as prescription-only medication, they are supported by extensive clinical studies, which show them to be a largely safe treatment option when delivered by a suitably experienced and qualified medical professional.
The most common side effects of anti-wrinkle injections include mild bleeding, redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site, which quickly resolves.
Some people experience a headache after their treatment, and, very rarely, double vision that self-corrects.
If you have an injection in your forehead area, it is important to know that there have been cases where the treatment has caused drooping of the upper eyelid. In the hands of an experienced medical professional, studies show this happens in less than one percent of cases and will disappear over a period of two to ten weeks. It is possible to use an eye drop to speed up the recovery process.
Occasionally, people find that anti-wrinkle injections in their forehead can lift their eyebrows. Many women like this effect, while men may not be as happy. Fortunately, this issue can be easily corrected by injecting a small amount of the anti-wrinkle product in the eyebrow area to change its position.
Studies show that any side effects associated with these injections self-correct within three months as the product breaks down and is no longer effective.
We have given a guide to anti-wrinkle injection treatment costs above, but it will depend on the number of injections you have and the amount of product we use. When you come into Bamboo Aesthetics for your initial consultation, we’ll give you a full and transparent breakdown of your treatment costs so that you can make an informed decision.
