Anti-ageing cosmetic injections have gained in popularity over the last twenty years. Yet, confusion and myths still lurk around them; even for several individuals who use anti-wrinkle injections on a regular basis. Below or the answers to the most common anti-wrinkle injection questions.
WILL PEOPLE THINK I LOOK DIFFERENT OR ‘FAKE’?
Anti-ageing wrinkle injections can look as subtle or dramatic as each individual wants, but the best outcome is always to obtain the most natural and believable result that makes the individual look rejuvenated and refreshed.
DOES IT HURT?
Most individuals who have had anti-wrinkle injections compare the experience to that of a pinch – like flicking an elastic band on your wrist. The fear of needles is one of the most popular reasons why some individuals stay away from anti-wrinkle injections altogether.
WHY DO SOME COSMETIC CLINICS AVOID ADVERTISING TREATMENT COST?
Like any cosmetic procedure whether it be surgical or non-surgical, you always get what you end up paying for; and your outcome will be greatly dependent upon your doctor’s experience and expertise. Dr Ballantyne is a top anti wrinkle specialist who along with his staff are experienced in ‘natural look’ injecting practices and uphold best-practice standards to achieve the most refreshed and natural looking appearance for you.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE INJECTABLE TREATMENTS?
Frequency can differ from person to person, but most people require a treatment every 3 or 4 months.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
For your initial consultation, your practitioner should take the time to conduct a full assessment of your facial anatomy and to discuss with you your areas of concern as well as your aesthetic goals. He/she should take the time to ensure you that they completely understand your concerns and what you want to achieve so that they can customise a treatment plan specific to YOU.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
It can take up to 10 days for the full results to be visible, but some people begin to notice a difference within 48 hours.
CAN MUSCLE RELAXANT INJECTIONS BE USED TO ENLARGE LIPS?
In general, most individuals assume that the exact same product is used to decrease muscle activity and make a more prominent lip pout, but the truth is that both are very different products. Muscle relaxing product injections target your facial dynamics and muscles to smooth deep wrinkles and minimise lines.
Contrary, dermal filler gels are utilised to create structure and volume underneath the surface of the skin, which may have diminished through the years. Thus, dermal fillers can enlarge or enhance the lips. Dermal fillers are particularly popular in individuals in their 20’s all the way through to individuals in their 60’s! Fillers can plump up the lips, decrease lines and rejuvenate the mouth.
