What are anti-wrinkle injections
Anti-wrinkle injections involve using small quantities of Botulinum Toxin. These are injected into specific muscles using an ultra-fine needle to immobilise the muscle. This stops the muscles from contracting, while the rest of the face continues to move. This creates a natural softening to your dynamic lines and wrinkles giving you a natural, fresh, and rejuvenated appearance.
We do not believe in giving our patients a ‘frozen’ expression, and strive for natural results. Botulinum Toxin is perfectly safe and has been used on millions of patients worldwide, for over 20 years. When administered correctly, Anti-Wrinkle Injections will last for 3 – 4 months.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are not painful as an ultrafine needles are used. However, it can be mildly uncomfortable. Cold packs can be used if needed to minimise pain and improve comfort.
Questions & Answers
Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Safe ?
Yes. Doctors/Nurses & Beauticians have been administering Anti-Wrinkle Injections for over twenty years, on thousands of patients, to treat many different problem areas as well as to reduce wrinkles.
Lily-Rose House Of Beauty use Allergan Botox, the most advanced product on the market.
How Long Is The Treatment ?
Treatment does not take very long – usually about twenty minutes. The first effects will start to appear around three days later, with optimum results achieved after two weeks.
How Many Treatments Will I Need ?
It depends how many areas you wish to treat and this can be discussed in your consultation with us. Re-treatment is recommended every 3-4 months to continue optimal results.
What Not To Do Before Botox ?
A week before you get Botox injections, stop taking: aspirin, ibuprofen, Excedrin, Motrin, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, flax oil, cod liver oil, fish oil, vitamin A, vitamin E and other essential fatty acids. Also, avoid drinking alcohol a few days before your treatment
Can I sleep on my side after having Botox® ?
Yes, provided you wait at least four hours before lying down. Botox® takes a few hours to settle into place, so lying down straightaway could cause it to migrate to other muscles in your face and increase the risk of complications.
How long after having Botox® can I lie down?
We recommend not lying down for at least four hours after having Botox®. Not only will it help prevent any excessive swelling but it will stop the Botox® migrating to other parts of the face and causing muscle weakness in those areas, a rare but possible side effect of having the treatment.
Should I avoid heat after Botox®?
Yes, as heat can increase the chance of you suffering bruising where you were at the injection site. You should avoid hot showers, baths and hot tubs for 24 hours after having Botox®.
Can I go on a sunbed after having Botox®?
After having Botox®, you should wait 24-48 hrs before laying back and soaking up some artificial sun.
How soon after having Botox® can I consume alcohol?
It’s best to avoid drinking alcohol for a day or two before and after the procedure. As alcohol increases fluid retention and thins the blood, it can worsen the mild bruising that often occurs where the needles are injected.
Drinking alcohol is highly unlikely to have any long-term detrimental effects on the results of your treatment.
Can I exercise after having Botox?
It is fine for you to exercise prior to your Botox and filler treatment. However, you will want to wait 24 hours after your treatment before returning to exercise
Is It Normal To Get Lumps Appear After Botox ?
Is it normal to have a large lump on your forehead after Botox? Swelling at the injection site is common following Botox treatment, and typically resolves after a few days. Large, hard lumps which are present at the injection site are usually caused by some trauma to a local small blood vessel.
There is no need to worry if it is not increasing in size or associated with pain.
What happens If Botox Migrates ?
When Botox migrates to one or both of two specific areas, Botox injections can result in a droopy eyelid — also called ptosis. These two areas are the forehead and between the eyes.
What happens when the results of Botox® wear off?
After around three to four months, you’ll start to notice the areas you had treated with Botox® gradually returning to how they looked before having treatment.
When Botox® wears off, are wrinkles worse?
No. If you feel your wrinkles look more pronounced after Botox® treatment has worn off, it will most likely be because you’ve become used to your face looking smoother.
Please be aware that results and treatment experiences may vary from patient to patient, taking into consideration factors such as age, lifestyle and medical history. You’ll receive full Botox aftercare instructions after having treatment.
Why Does Botox Take Upto 2 Weeks To Work ?
While some results are noticeable after 3 or 4 days, it can take a few weeks to see maximum results. Why this delay? Botox binds at a connection point between muscles and nerves called the motor endplate. This explains why the onset of Botox isn't immediate, but rather takes several days.
How Long Do I Have To Wait For A Facial Treatment ?
There is no medical reason why you cannot have botox and a facial on the same day as Anti-wrinkle injections 'BOTOX' goes into the muscle as facials are superfical.
ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS 'BOTOX ' TREATMENT
We want you to have the very best results from your Botox treatment and have written these after-care instructions to help you achieve this.
We recommend the following:
Avoid touching, massaging or any pressure on the treatment areas for the first 4 hours as this may change the placement of the Botox and cause undesirable effects.
If you need to reapply makeup in the first 4 hours, do so gently.
You may experience some small red dots or minor bruising around the injection sites. This is normal and will generally fade after a few hours.
If you are on aspirin or other blood-thinning medications, there is an increased risk of bruising which may also last longer. If you have any bruises, you can apply Arnica Gel or cream to the area.
Do not lie down for the first 4 hours in order to avoid the risk of pressure on the treatment areas.
Avoid drinking alcohol for at least the first 12 hours as it can contribute to bruising and swelling.
Avoid strenuous exercise or activities that might cause the Botox to be displaced (e.g. yoga for the first 24 hours after your treatment.
Avoid Sunbeds for 24/48hrs
Avoid having a facial for 24 hours.
Do not take any long-haul flights for 24 hours.
We hope that you will be happy with the result of your Botox treatment but the full effect usually takes 14 days.
If this is your first Botox treatment at Lily-Rose House Of Beauty we will see you back in about 2 weeks to see the effect on your individual muscles and can make any refinements if necessary.
This will also help us to create an individualised treatment plan for you to get the very best results in future treatments. The duration of the treatment effect varies between individuals but can last up to 4 months. It cannot be repeated within 3 months.
When you notice the results of your Botox wearing off then please book another appointment for a repeat treatment.
We know the safety of botox, however there is nothing wrong with being cautious and in certain situations and we would advise not to have the botox procedure.
We would not carry out botox in anyone under the age of 18. It is very rare that you would need the treatment at this stage anyway. However we want to make sure all the muscles and facial structures have stopped maturing so we can work on a stable base.
If you are pregnant or breast feeding then we would not carry out botox injections on you. In theory there is a small chance that the botox may enter your bloodstream and effect other parts of your body.
If you are allergic to eggs, you would not be able to have botox. There is a similar protein in eggs that occurs in the botox.
If you suffer from any neurological disorders, like multiple sclerosis then you would not be able to undertake botox procedures. As botox inhibits the nerve supply to the muscle, we would not want to interfere with this process in neurological disorders.
