What Causes the Tell-Tale Signs of Aging?
As we age, collagen that is found naturally in the skin begins to deplete. This along with environmental factors such as free radicals and sun exposure causes the skin to lose elasticity and results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Genetics, diet and lifestyle factors (Alcohol, Stress, Smoking) can also impact the speed in which this process occurs.
The muscles on the face naturally contract and expand to form expressions, and while it’s a completely natural process, it is one that will cause frown lines and crow’s feet to develop over time. For instance, continuous frowning and raising of the eyebrows can cause lines to develop in between the two brows, whilst squinting and laughing causes the muscles around the eyes to contract, resulting in crow’s feet.
BTX is a prescription medicine that is injected into the skin to block nerve signals on a temporary basis. This relaxes the muscles, which can reduce and soften wrinkles and fine lines. BTX is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries as the safety and efficacy has been clinically proven.

During the initial in depth consultation your Aesthetic Practitioner will discussed your concerns and determine what it is you’d like to achieve through the use of antiwrinkle injectables. The Practitioner will also review your medical history and answer any questions you may have, ensuring that you feel safe and comfortable to have the treatment. Photographs will also be taken to track and monitor your progress.
The following aftercare is recommended to improve the treatment results and to minimise side-effects from the treatment:
- Avoid extreme facial expressions, alcohol consumption and applying make-up for up to 12 hours
- Avoid extreme sun exposure, UV light, freezing temperatures and saunas for 2 weeks after treatment
- Avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.
- Avoid massaging the area or any facials on the skin
You will be able to go back to your normal activities straight after treatment, but your Aesthetic Practitioner may ask you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activity. Alcohol consumption should be avoided before and on the day of the treatment. Makeup can be applied after 2 hours. This is all to allow the injection site to close and avoid infection. Ice may be applied to the injected area to reduce swelling and discomfort.
It is important to add that while the risks associated with anti wrinkle injectables are minimal, you need to fully disclose your medical history prior to treatment, as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions, or medications can jeopardize your safety or results.
