Antiwrinkle FAQs

How long does the treatment take?

You will have a consultation to determine the areas you would like to treat and your ideal outcome. The treatment itself then takes about 10 minutes.

When will I see results?

Peak results are seen after 14 days when you will be invited to return for a follow up appointment. A complimentary top up is offered at this appointment if required.

Is there any downtime?

After antiwrinkle injections, you need to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol on the same day. You must avoid lying down for 4 hours after the treatment.

How long does the treatment last?

3-4 months

What age do you need to be?

Whilst each patient is assessed individually for anti-wrinkle treatment, generally patients begin to start noticing wrinkles in their early thirties due to declining collagen. Fine lines can be treated to prevent them becoming deeper over time. UV protection is always recommended to prevent worsening fine lines, wrinkles and signs of aging on the skin.

Will I be able to move my face?

When antiwrinkle injections are are performed correctly, the natural movement and appearance of the face is preserved but simply appears refreshed and relaxed.
