Lines are starting to appear in the corners of your eyes and on your forehead, and you don’t like what they are doing to your appearance. You want to look young for as long as possible. Fortunately, science has a way of doing just that. Anti wrinkle injections will make you look years younger than you actually are. You can get rid of your laughter lines, forehead frown lines and any other wrinkles on your face. But before you decide to go on with the procedure, there are some things you must consult your doctor with.
Will my face look expressionless?
We see a lot of women on TV that, after getting facial injections to get rid of their wrinkles, their faces look frozen, or they have trouble smiling. This is a valid concern as you don’t want your face to look fake or frozen after the injections. Let your doctor explain to you how the injections work and how they will not make your face look expressionless.
Where do you often inject?
The most common areas injected are beside the eyes to remove crows’ feet or laughter lines, between the eyebrows and on the forehead. These are where most wrinkles form. But if other areas on the face need injections, your doctor will address them.
Is it painful?
A few needle pricks will only feel like a pair of tweezers is pricking your skin. Only people with a fear of needles will be scared of the procedure, but it doesn’t take long to finish.
Do I need more than one session of injections?
The frequency of injections will depend on the condition of your facial skin, and your doctor will determine how often you should get injections to get rid of lines on your face fully.
Is it safe?
The safety of the client is the clinic’s paramount priority. They will make sure that you pass their assessment before undergoing the procedure. Likewise, it would be best if you also told your doctor of existing medical conditions that may affect the delivery of the procedure.
Are results instant?
You will not see visible results right after the doctor takes the needle out of your skin. It will take somewhere from 2 to 10 days for visible results to fully show.
Are they the same as dermal fillers?
There is a world of difference between dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle shots. The latter consists of small amounts of botulism type A, which makes muscle movement weak that prevents lines from forming, while the former contains hyaluronic acid that helps with volume loss.
Have a thorough consultation with your preferred clinic before you dive into the procedure so you can fully understand the procedure – what it entails, how long it will take, and how safe it is, among others. Do not go to fly-by-night clinics that do not have a license to do the procedure. One thing to look out for is the price of the procedure; if it is too cheap to be true, then it probably is.
