ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS
Bare Again is pleased to offer anti-wrinkle injections as part of its comprehensive range of skin treatments. Treatments are done using a purified natural protein – a widely used medicine to treat muscle spasms, excessive sweating, migraine as well as in the cosmetic industry to reduce facial wrinkles.
How it works:
Antiwrinkle treatments works by injecting a natural purified protein with fine needles into facial muscles around the eyes, forehead and bridge of the nose depending on which muscles are to be targeted. Within days there is a reduction in the message sent from the nerve endings to the muscles in these regions. The result is that facial lines and wrinkles are reduced. This reaches its maximum effect at two weeks and lasts for around four months, although there is some individual variability. With repeat treatments injections are spread out further as the effect lasts longer.
Your initial consultation will be performed by our Registered Nurse, who will be happy to explain any possible side effects after a comprehensive history and examination is undertaken. This consultation is free of charge. Commonly there is a small amount of skin redness that lasts for a few hours. Bruising can occur. Effects such as eyelid drooping (ptosis) are uncommon and will resolve within a short period of time. Allergy is rare.
POST INJECTION CARE
Very little is required after anti-wrinkle injections. It’s important not to rub the site for at least four hours, to lie down and put pressure on the injected areas at this stage as well. Any small pinpoint bleeds can be carefully dabbed from the face. Some facial exercises may be undertaken.
AFTER THE INITIAL INJECTION
About two weeks after the initial injections the maximum effect takes place. At this time you will be reassessed in the clinic to review the effectiveness of the treatment. A “top-up” injection may be required to obtain the maximum benefit.
WHEN WILL IT WEAR OFF?
Anti-wrinkle treatments last about four months, although it varies from client to client. After four months can you undergo another treatment. Long term clients will notice the treatments may last longer than four months. Following the initial consultation repeat treatments may be undertaken by our qualified nurse injector.
