What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a form of botulinum toxin that has been modified for cosmetic purposes and has a long medical history of safe and effective use in the treatment of muscular problems related to certain neurological disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s disease). It is only in the last few years, however, that its cosmetic application has been developed. As we get older, our skin begins to show signs of sagging, with fine lines and deeper ‘animation’ wrinkles which are caused by repeated movement of the facial muscles.

We develop our patterns of facial movement during childhood and these continue subconsciously throughout our lives contributing to the development over time of deeper wrinkles such as frown lines. Anti-Wrinkle Injectibles are particularly effective on these wrinkles as they not only relax the muscle but they also prevent muscle contraction thereby preventing the formation of new wrinkles. They are also used to paralyse the muscles that control sweating and are very effective in the treatment of hyper-hydrosis (excessive sweating).

  • How Does PRP Work?
    Once the consultation and patient case study phase is concluded, a small amount of blood is taken and passed through a centrifuge system to separate the platelets and fibrin from the red blood cells – this concentrate, known as the matrix, is then injected into the areas to be treated. Note the plasma remains alive in the treated area for approximately 7 days but the activity of the stem cells in the plasma continues working for about 3 months.
  • Is PRP Therapy Safe?
    Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is the safest non-invasive procedure available in the market today because you are using cells from your own body therefore there can be no allergic reaction: • It’s the only treatment of this type that can be injected into the tear trough of the eye without fear of any adverse effects • No surgery/no anaesthetic • Completely safe and natural – no synthetic substances/no danger of allergic reactions or infections • Walk-in Walk-out procedure – minimal disruption to your life Above all, the treatment is virtually painless and patients can look forward to a fast recovery.
  • Where Can PRP Be Used?
    Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced; skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant bloom; skin is stimulated by the growth factors in the plasma to repair and rejuvenate itself. It is hugely successful in the treatment of areas such as: crow’s feet “crepey” eyelids acne scarring/scars in general wrinkles/fine lines around nose, lips, mouth sagging skin in the neck area stretch marks burned skin
  • What Does PRP Feel Like?
    Prior to treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed with a topical anaesthetic and plasma is then injected into the Upper Dermis – the patient may experience a sensation of tiny pin pricks but feedback from clients indicates that this sensation is not at all uncomfortable.
  • What After-Care Is Needed?
    Patient will experience slight swelling but this will usually disappear in 24 hours. In cases where patients are prone to bruising easily, slight bruising may be evident, but as with any other filler, this is easily covered with make-up.
  • How Long Will The Effects Of PRP Last?
    In cases where skin is not deeply wrinkled/badly scarred or burned, follow-up treatments are recommended on an annual basis. In the case of damaged or quite wrinkled skin, a follow-up treatment is advised for 3 months later and thereafter on an annual basis.
  • Who Is Not Suitable For PRP?
    Because you are using cells from your own body, there can be no allergic reaction, therefore PRP is suitable for most people however if you have any concerns or specific medical conditions, we will advise you during the pre-treatment consultation whether the procedure is safe for you or not. Following consultation, the patient is advised on dietary changes required to aid the process e.g. increase intake of Vitamin C and water, and avoidance of stimulants such as coffee, alcohol and cigarettes. Patients will experience much more effective and satisfactory results if they follow these guidelines.
  • Are There Any Side Effects?
    No unnatural substances are used, therefore there is no danger of adverse/allergic reactions because you are using your own cells.
