Want younger-looking skin but are worried that having anti-winkle injections aren't safe? Here's why having this treatment with professionals at a medical clinic can be perfectly safe...
Botulinum toxin has been used in medical wrinkle reduction techniques for over four decades and the administration of the injection is carried out in a manner which ensures that it only affects the muscles and sweat glands in the problem area. The treatment will not reach any other part of the body.
When administered by a trained and experienced professional, the risks of an anti-wrinkle injection are kept to a minimum. The procedure itself is largely pain-free, with the majority of clients only experiencing minimal discomfort due to the use of a small needle during the injection. The area around the site of the injection may also experience some soreness immediately after administration, however, this will pass quickly.
Most Side Effects Are Brief and Minor
Most side effects of anti-wrinkle injections are brief and minor, the most common being mild bruising around the site of the injection. Some patients also report experiencing a mild headache shortly after administration, but it usually disappears within 24 hours.
You should not have treatment if:
- The site of your injection is infected
- You are allergic to any of the injection’s ingredients
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have a neuromuscular disorder
Face to Face Consultations
The procedure will only be carried out after a face to face consultation which will take place with a member of our experienced team. A full assessment will be carried out and we will discuss the cautions and contraindications associated with the treatment prior to the injection.
Advice for the Time Period Following Treatment
Making sure that you keep your facial muscles active following the procedure will help the treatment to take action. However, it is best to avoid touching your face during the 24 hours which immediately follow your anti-wrinkle injection. It is wise to refrain from drinking alcohol, taking any painkillers or flying straight after your treatment.
