Wrinkle Injection ResultsSeptember 7, 2014
When will I start to see results from Anti-Wrinkle injections?
You will start to see results within a few days but it takes 7-14 days to see the full results.
Although the wrinkle prevention injections are completely gone within an hour or so, it takes time for the targeted nerve endings to become ‘deactivated’.
The number of days until you start to see a change and also until the final result is achieved, depends on the length of time since your last treatment has worn off. We will advise you each time what you should expect.
We ask you to come back for review in 2 weeks to make sure your results are optimal and that you are satisfied.
How long do the results last?
The length of time it takes the nerve endings to regain enough protein to operate the nerves at full capacity is individual – usually 4-6 months. Over time (about 2-3 years), the results will last longer due to the nerve proteins becoming slower at rebuilding.
In areas where you have created a lot expression through involuntary overuse of your facial muscles (such as the forehead and frown lines) you can find that, even if you discontinue wrinkle prevention injections after about 5 years, your muscle memory will have lessened to the point where you no longer create those undesirable expressions.
As your skin becomes looser and less elastic with age, our skin strengthening and tightening treatments become more important for maintenance.
