Our skin naturally wrinkles as we age due to decreased collagen and elasticity in the skin. Thankfully, we don’t have to live with unwanted wrinkles and fine lines these days. At AFYA we offer a number of wrinkle injections that tighten and smooth out your skin! Many people are nervous about injections though, often due to misconceptions and a lack of information. That’s why we’ve answered all of the most common questions about wrinkle injections below.
How Long do Wrinkle Injections Last?
Every person has a different result when it comes to wrinkle injections. On average, they should last 3 to 4 months. However, there are a number of factors that will dictate how long they will last such as which area is being treated, how long you spend in the sun and your lifestyle.
Where can you Get Wrinkle Injections?
Wrinkles will typically appear on your face as you age. The most common places to get wrinkle injections are around the eyes (crow’s feet), the forehead, the glabella (between the eyebrows), and around the mouth.
How do Wrinkle Injections Work?
Wrinkle injections have been around much longer than people realize. They work by relaxing the muscles in the face, in turn smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. They can inhibit some movement in the targeted muscles. However, at AFYA we specialize in natural-looking injections in order to avoid the overly stiff face that many people think of when they imagine wrinkle injections.
What to Expect When Getting Wrinkle Injections
At AFYA we aim to make your injection appointment as comfortable and easy as possible. Our skilled staff will make small injections into the muscle of the targeted area using an extremely tiny needle. The treatment only takes a few minutes! You’ll notice a few small red bumps in the injection areas for a few hours after, but they will disappear. Results can take up to two weeks to be fully apparent, but most people notice results right away!
Do Wrinkle Injections Hurt?
This is one of the most common questions we get asked. The good news is that wrinkle injections are very painless. At most, it is a small pinch. Most people don’t notice the feeling though!
Is There Any Aftercare for Wrinkle Injections?
The great thing about wrinkle injections is there is very little aftercare. Simply avoid lying on your face for a few hours after and don’t do any strenuous activity for 24 hours. We also recommend you avoid any excessive alcohol or blood-thinning medications in the day or two before and after.
