Here at AK Aesthetics, we are a Liverpool based salon offering a variety of beauty treatments to those who live in the UK, including anti-wrinkle injections. Today we are going to focus our attention on this non-surgical line softening treatment, looking at what exactly it is, how it works, and what you can expect if you decide to go ahead with this treatment. Read on to find out more before you book your appointment.
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Our anti-wrinkle injections are made from a purified form of protein. Considered a non-surgical treatment, the toxin is injected at a very low dose. Minute injections are targeted in the facial muscles, offering a temporary softening of wrinkles. Through this treatment, we aim to reduce the activity of the muscle, which in turn reduces the formation of lines. As the treatment is not permanent, if you stop, your wrinkles will return.
How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle activity, which is why this treatment targets these areas in order to soften facial lines. After going through our consultation process, including medical checks, if you choose to go for this treatment, we will begin by fully cleansing your skin. We target the areas outlined during your consultation with the injections. As the treatment is temporary, it is recommended to come for a top-up treatment approximately three times a year in order to maintain the appearance of your skin as the results of the injections last up to four months.
What Can I Expect from Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
You will be glad to know that our anti-wrinkle injections use needles that are so thin that you should only experience minimum discomfort, and no pain at all. There are no known side-effects when the injections are administered in a professional and safe way. As the toxin is a prescription-only medication, the treatment is carried out by a qualified nurse, and only after a stringent consultation and health check. It should take between twenty to thirty minutes to complete the treatment. Our services are accredited by Save Face, so you can be sure you will be safe in our hands.
