We are now offering anti wrinkle treatment at Carrig Medical Centre. Botulinum toxin is often known as the brand name botox, dysport or xeomin. This is the single most effective and by far the most popular of the anti wrinkle treatments in the world. It is considered to be the finest advancement in recent cosmetic medicine in the last two decades.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections can erase lines and wrinkles, improve facial contour and improve eye shape in a matter of days, effectively turning back the clock without the need for surgery.
Does it hurt?
The treatment itself can only takes 15-20 minutes. Numbing cream can be applied to your skin before treatment, but the needles are so tiny that there is normally no need.
How long do the effects last?
The results of the treatment become visible after 2-7 days, and the effects should last about 3-6 months. When you return for regular follow-up treatments, the muscles become accustomed to the treatment and the effects can last much longer.
What areas can be effectively treated?
Botulinum toxin can be used to
- Relax frown lines
- Give the eyebrows a lift
- Soften the appearance of ‘crows’ feet’
- Reduce excessive underarm sweating
Is it safe?
Botulinum toxin has been used for many years to treat muscular spasticity. The doses required to treat spasticity are far higher than the tiny amounts used for cosmetic treatment of the face. At this point in time, MILLIONS of botulinum toxin doses have been administered, safely, with no complications.
The most important thing to remember is that this treatment is non-permanent and very safe. The botulinum toxin is metabolized at the injection site and it does not spread to any other parts of the body. If you decide to stop having the treatment, your appearance will revert to its original state.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are not very common with botulinum toxin treatments, and very importantly even if they occur there are no long-term side effects whatsoever. For about one hour after the treatment you may have small red bumps at the site of the injections, but these typically fade within 1 hour. Headaches, slight bruising, tightness and heaviness are rare side-effects but all of these usually resolve within a matter of days.
An appointment is essential for this treatment, and this can be done out of surgery hours.
