Anti-wrinkle Injections are the most popular injectable treatment at Amara.
Our medical director has refined the clinics approach to anti-wrinkle injections over 13 years and 40,000 treatments and all of our doctors are trained to give patients subtle, natural results that last – this is The Amara Way.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are a doctor led treatment used to treat dynamic lines using Botox. They are sometimes called anti-ageing or muscle relaxing injections.
Why are people concerned with dynamic lines?
Dynamic lines can age us greatly and make us look different to how we feel – this is the main reason why most people come to us to address them.
Importantly, if left unaddressed, dynamic lines develop into permanent wrinkles over time.
Types of dynamic lines
The following is a list of the main types of dynamic lines:
|The lines formed by the brow, especially those at the bridge of the nose that look like the number 11|
|The lines that form when you smile or laugh|
|The lines that form horizontally across your forehead when you look surprised|
Crow’s Feet Lines
|The lines that form outside your eyes when you squint at a screen, laugh or smile|
How do anti-wrinkle injections work and how long does it last?
Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily preventing the muscles injected from moving at full strength – hence ‘muscle-relaxing’ injections.
A good treatment will mean the muscles have restricted movement for 3-4 months.
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
We use the real Botox, not a cheaper bio-similar product. It’s made by Allergan, right here in Ireland. Always ask your practitioner what product they use.
It has one of the best safety profiles of any pharmaceutical product available. As the product wears off your movement will return to normal.
What can I expect at my anti-wrinkle consultation in Amara?
We will take some photos and your doctor will show you where they plan to inject and how this will address your concerns.
The exact treatment plan will be based on how your muscles work. This means every treatment at Amara is tailor made for you.
What happens after my consultation?
If you wish to be treated on the day, we can do this. If you want time to think about it, you can go away and come back another day.
You will never be pressured into treatment at Amara.
The procedure itself will take only a few minutes. It’s pain free aside from a few small pricks, and the down time is minimal with the redness at injection points normally resolving within 30 mins.
Review and top-up ‘tweakments’ – Avoiding the frozen look
Between 2 and 4 weeks after your initial treatment, you will be brought back for a review consultation. Here you and the doctor will discuss your results and if you need a top-up, it will be administered free of charge.
This ‘tweakment’ process allows our doctors to get to know your face and how best to treat you to get the results you want. It also helps us avoid the ‘done’ and ‘frozen’ looks.
Who can have an anti-wrinkle treatment at Amara?
There are very few medical reasons why someone might not be suitable for treatment so anti-wrinkle injections are open to most people.
Unfortunately, treatments with anti-wrinkle injections are not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
