How Long Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Last?

The removal of expression wrinkles is commonly handled by anti-wrinkle injections offered here at ICCM. A question we get asked on a regular basis is ‘how long do anti-wrinkle injections last?’ So to clear this up, we have delved into the subject below.

When combined with a quality skincare routine, the effects of an anti-wrinkle injection can be long-lasting, but will require maintenance. We recommend discussing the treatment with our experts before making the decision to undergo the procedure.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Anti-wrinkle injections and the length of their effects will often depend on the size of the dose; however, a common time frame is often stated as roughly four months. As the injection is more regularly administered, the muscles will weaken over time, meaning you can decrease the frequency of your sessions. Should you decide to stop the treatment altogether, your muscles will return to their normal strength over time.

Why would I get anti-wrinkle injections?

Those looking to rejuvenate their appearance can achieve this by removing and preventing wrinkles and fine lines. The most popular method for this is via anti-wrinkle injections.

A range of non-surgical treatments, such as dermal fillers, can also work in conjunction with these injections to prevent deeper lines from forming and becoming permanent. Anti-wrinkle injections are favoured by many patients as they have a proven safety track record and provide natural results. As with any anti-aging treatment, they are more effective when multiple and continuous treatments are maintained.

The main benefits of anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing facial muscles to create a refreshed, more youthful look. They offer a 25-year proven safety record with extensive clinical trials and are used all over the world for both medical and cosmetic reasons.

By blocking the signals between nerves and muscles, frown lines and wrinkles are reduced and prevented with a simple, non-invasive procedure. This makes the treatment an effective way to prevent premature aging and permanent wrinkles. A female in her mid-thirties, for example, may use anti-wrinkle injections to one day avoid the need for a full facelift.

Those who are uncomfortable with the idea of surgery will likely feel much more at ease with the anti-wrinkle injection procedure. At most, an extremely fine needle and pinprick are required, resulting in very little downtime (if any).

Patients will also experience minimal, if any, bruising or swelling via a procedure that only takes a few minutes. Mineral make-up can be applied immediately upon completion, meaning you can return to your normal day to day activities straight away. It is advised that you avoid strenuous exercise and facial massage, and to sleep on your back for the first 48 hours.
