Anti Wrinkle Injections in Edinburgh

What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections and How Do They Work?

Anti-wrinkle injections, commonly referred to as Botox, involve injecting a minute amount of Botulinum toxin into specific facial muscles responsible for wrinkles. By blocking nerve signals to these muscles, the treatment temporarily relaxes them, resulting in smoother, less pronounced lines and wrinkles.

Areas Treated

These injections primarily address dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement, including frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and top lip lines. They can also be used to lift facial features (e.g., Lip Flip) and balance asymmetry.

Softens Existing Wrinkles
Prevent The Formation of New Lines
Rested And More Youthful Appearance

The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually manifest within a few days, reaching their maximum impact within two weeks. Though not permanent, the initial results endure for three to four months. Subsequent treatments may prolong relaxation and softening, extending the effects up to 6 or 7 months in certain cases. It’s important to note that individual metabolism variations can influence these timelines

Number of Sessions and Interval

To maintain optimal results, multiple sessions are usually recommended, with at least 12 weeks between each treatment. The frequency and number of sessions may vary based on individual response and desired outcomes.

During the Treatment​

The procedure is minimally invasive and brief, often taking about 20 minutes. Patients can resume normal activities almost immediately after the injections.

Potential Side Effects

While generally safe, potential side effects include tenderness, headache, mild redness, swelling, or bruising, which are usually short-term and minor.

Before & Aftercare
Before Treatment
  • Minimise alcohol consumption for a minimum of 24 hours before injectable treatment, as alcohol can thin the blood, increasing the risk of bruising.
  • Avoid certain supplements and medications before the procedure and discuss any history of allergies and current medications with the injector.
  • Inform your provider if you have a history of cold sores or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
After Treatment
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Keep the treated area clean and makeup-free for at least 24 hours.
  • Stay upright for 4 hours following treatment and avoid applying pressure to the area for the first 48 hours.
  • Refrain from high-intensity activities or exercise for over 24 hours and avoid hot environments for 24 hours.
  • Avoid additional skin treatments in the treated area for up to 2 weeks.

Individuals pregnant, breastfeeding, or with conditions involving nerve damage or muscle weakness like Myasthenia Gravis should avoid these injections. A comprehensive medical history will be discussed before treatment to ensure its suitability. 

  • Have the flu, a virus, or are generally unwell
  • Are currently undergoing active antibiotic treatment
