Anti Wrinkle Injections

Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Hurt?

If you’re reading this blog, you’re most likely looking for ways to improve the appearance of your skin if you’re suffering from sun-damaged skin or are beginning to see wrinkles appear. Fortunately, the easiest and safest solution to hide the appearance of wrinkles or sun-damaged skin is to visit a safe dental clinic for anti-wrinkle injections.

Botox injections have experienced a boom in recent years, helping people to look and feel younger and more attractive. When patients visit our dental clinic in Essex for anti-wrinkle injections, the most common question we receive is “Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?”. While many patients expect anti-wrinkle injections to hurt, they should be completely pain-free when administered correctly and professionally.

This guide explains the basics of anti-wrinkle botox injections, including what you can expect, how long they last and how the treatment can be made as comfortable as possible, particularly for those with a fear of needles.

What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are the best form of anti-ageing available on the market and are an approved procedure which is completely safe, providing injections are carried out by registered professionals. These injections can be used on the lips, forehead, cheeks and chin.

Useful in correcting lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines and around the eyes (also known as crows feet), anti-wrinkle injections are fully effective in making you look 10 years younger and to provide you with that all-important confidence boost that we all need.

Botox injections can be administered in a way that appears natural and blends in with your natural appearance. As anti-wrinkle injections contain hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced in your body, it’s a completely safe solution which is proven to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and deep folds.

What to Expect from Botox Injections

Upon your first consultation for botox injections, the practitioner will be talking you through your particular skin type and any skin problems you suffer from to decide which anti-wrinkle treatment is best for you, your budget and your lifestyle. 

As we understand that choosing whether anti-wrinkle injections is for you is a big decision, it’s critical that all treatment options are researched during the initial consultation. This is important as the consultation process assesses your compatibility with anti-wrinkle treatments.

It’s crucial to also discuss any medications or health conditions you may have so that your consultant can find the safest treatment for you.

When having your first treatment of anti-wrinkle injections, it will usually only take between 5-10 minutes, with around 3-10 days for the injections to fully take effect.

How long anti-wrinkle injections last for will completely depend on which areas are injected and how much of the solution is injected. We usually advise that anti-wrinkle injections can last between 3-6 months, so if you want a long-term solution, you’ll need to revisit for top-up injections after this time.

Please be aware that you won’t be able to have botox if:

  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have acne where the anti-wrinkle injections are to be administered
  • Have any muscle or nerve disease that may affect the reaction of anti-wrinkle injections
  • You are allergic to anti-wrinkle injections
