SPECIAL OCCASIONS Whether you have received anti-wrinkle treatment before or it is your first time, if you are preparing for a special occasion, we strongly recommend you receive treatment as early as possible – at least 2 weeks before the event takes place. Please advise the Doctor at consultation stage of any up coming events that may affect the timing of your treatment.
Before having any cosmetic treatment it is important to consider the risks. With Anti Wrinkle injections Melbourne there is minimal risk of bruising, however if this occurs, make-up easily covers any temporary reaction. Seeking treatment from a skilled practitioner will avoid instances of eyelid or brow droop. Temporary side effects can also include headaches, tingling, an itching or aching sensation, skin tightness and nausea. However these side effects are a rare occurrence and are temporary. Anti Wrinkle injections should not be injected if the patient is allergic to any of the ingredients listed in the formulation, or if there is an infection in the muscle where it would normally be injected. If you have any muscle disorders including myasthenia gravis, Eaton Lambert syndrome or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, treatment with Anti Wrinkle injections should not be attempted.
Over time patients have noticed that if they keep up with their anti-wrinkle treatments of Anti Wrinkle injections, the results last longer than their first treatment. For example one patient has reported that after a year of regular use, he now only returns once a year for a top up. Read Brett R’s story here At the opposite end of the scale, some patients find that the product doesn’t last for as long as they’d like. This could be due to lifestyle or a natural resistance. This can only be determined by having the treatment and monitoring the results. This possible resistance to wrinkle treatment is rare but will be discussed at consultation stage.
How long does the treatment take & How long does it last?
Wrinkle relaxing injectable treatments take around 15 minutes to perform and the results gradually appear over 7 – 14 days. Facial contouring procedures may take up to 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas required to be treated. As the effect of Anti ageing injections is not immediately obvious, many patients visit the clinic during their lunch breaks for their cosmetic injectable treatments. HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? Over the first 2 years you may need a treatment every 3 – 4 months before the effect fully wears off each time. The interval between treatments may increase as the effects tend to last longer when your muscles are ‘trained’ to relax.
