Your Anti-Wrinkle Injections Journey: What to Expect

Embarking on an anti-wrinkle injections treatment journey might feel daunting, especially if it's your first time. Understanding the process can alleviate some of this uncertainty and make your experience more enjoyable. At Hannah's Medical Aesthetics in Newmarket, Suffolk, we aim to ensure our clients are comfortable, informed, and satisfied with their treatment journey.

During the initial consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals, expectations, and any concerns you may have. This is an opportunity for me to understand what you hope to achieve with the treatment, answer your questions, and develop a tailored treatment plan.

The treatment itself involves injecting small amounts of botulinum toxin into the muscles beneath your wrinkles using a fine needle. The process is relatively quick, typically taking about 15 to 30 minutes. Some clients report a mild discomfort, akin to a pinprick, during the injection, but most find it quite manageable.</p><p>After the treatment, you can typically return to your regular activities immediately. There may be some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, but these side effects are usually minimal and subside within a few days.

While the effects of anti-wrinkle injections can be seen as soon as 24-48 hours after treatment, it usually takes about 5-7 days for the full effects to become apparent. This varies between individuals, and I always schedule a follow-up appointment 2 weeks after the initial treatment to assess the results and make any necessary adjustments.

Results typically last between 3-6 months, after which the muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear. However, they're usually less severe with time as the muscles are being trained to relax.

For the best results, it’s recommended to maintain your anti-wrinkle injections with regular treatments. This will not only help preserve the results but also prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.

As an experienced registered nurse specialising in aesthetic medicine, I am committed to providing the highest standard of care and achieving the best possible results for my clients. At Hannah's Medical Aesthetics, we pride ourselves in offering anti-wrinkle injections in Newmarket and Suffolk that are safe, effective, and tailored to each individual's needs.
