We are living in great times for cosmetic medicine. With a little help from our trusted cosmetic injector, anti-wrinkle injections will help to turn back the hands of time, keeping us looking fresh, face first. But despite its widespread popularity, there are still plenty of misconceptions about this popular treatment option.
Let’s talk Anti-wrinkle Treatments
Myth 1. Once you start, you can’t stop
We love this one! Will you really look worse if you stop your injections after your first treatment wears off? I went to straight to the professionals to get the official word on this one. I asked our very own Dr Mark Kearns. His answer, after a smile, was simply, “It will not. The effects of the treatment last for up to 4 months. Then your face will go back to the same condition it was in before. And your face will age with time as normal.”
Myth 2. The only use is for wrinkles
This might be new information for you, but did you know that Anti-wrinkle treatments can be used to help with a variety of other medical conditions? From treating migraines and excessive sweating to alleviating TMJ symptoms – Anti-wrinkle treatments can be effective.
There is also the thought that anti-wrinkle treatments can be a preventative treatment for future wrinkles. Bonus!
Myth 3. My face will be frozen
This is definitely not true if you seek out a qualified, experienced professional. We always say when first starting out, less is more. The results can always be tweaked. The Dr Face mantra is that no one should guess you have had treatment, but they will notice something. Anti-wrinkle treatments relax the facial muscles with the result of a smoothing out of wrinkles. You keep your natural look with all your all your normal expressions and facial character.
Our advice is don’t be afraid. Anti-wrinkle injections have been used for decades now. They have proven to be a very safe method to smooth facial wrinkles for most people. Give it a try. Look for an experienced professional. Remember less is more. And even intermittent injections can relax dynamic muscles that cause wrinkling sufficiently to slow the aging process just a bit. Start by booking a consultation with one of our Dr Face doctors to get the best advice for your unique face.
