Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles, thereby softening the appearance of the line or wrinkle. The skin above the muscles becomes nice and smooth after a period of between three to 14 days. It takes this time for the product to settle, attach itself to the nerve endings and get to work.
Does it hurt?
In the case of filler, a local anesthetic cream is applied to the area an hour before your treatment and so the treatment is considered relatively painless by the majority of patients. You will feel a little twinge or sting but generally, this is the extent of the sensation. In the case of anti-aging injections, a tiny needle is used so you only feel a little twinge.
How long does it take?
With filler, the treatment length varies depending on the number of areas being treated but generally, it takes between 30 and 90 minutes. Anti-wrinkle injections take just a few moments!
How soon will I see the results?
Filler results are immediate however it will take up to two weeks for the product to settle into the carefully selected area and for the full effects to be visible. Anti-wrinkle injections take between 3 – 14 days to take effect.
How long will the results last?
Filler results last between 3 months and 18 months depending on your own body’s metabolic system and the product that is used. Anti-wrinkle injections last up to 6 months.
