Rapt Beauty’s non-surgical and anti-ageing treatment

We celebrate the opening of our clinic by delving into the avant-garde of non-surgical treatments: anti-wrinkle injections. A safe and effective way to dramatically smooth and soften existing forehead lines. A now very common procedure among women and men, we divulge what anti-wrinkle injections treat and how they work. 

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment option. They produce exceptional results in very little time and last for around 3 to 6 months. The injection itself is made up of a purified protein solution that blocks signals from the nerve to the muscle which makes it unable to contract. Resulting in a softened, youthful and revitalised appearance. 

Anti-Wrinkle Injections also have the benefit of accumulating over time. Helping to prevent the breakdown of collagen that causes deep line formation in the skin. 

What do anti-wrinkle injections treat?

The benefits of anti-wrinkle injections seem to be endless. New studies are finding more and more medical conditions and symptoms that are able to be treated with these injections. With our expertise and precision, we are able to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth, neck, eyes and forehead. Resulting in a fresh rejuvenated appearance without the need for surgery.

Anti-wrinkle Injections also have the benefit of treating conditions like: 

  • TMJ syndrome (jaw dysfunction) 
  • Cervical dystonia (a condition where the neck muscles contract involuntarily) 
  • Lazy eye (an of the muscles in the eye that are responsible for positioning) 
  • Muscle contractions  
  • Hyperhidrosis (a condition where excessive sweating occurs) 
  • Chronic migraines
  • Bladder dysfunction 
  • Eye twitching 

What can you expect during the procedure?

Once you have had your consultation and advised us on your desired results, the actual procedure is very quick, taking only several minutes. We use a small, extremely thin needle to inject the muscle with only very minor discomfort, most of our patients say they can barely feel it. Multiple areas can also be targeted simultaneously.

Post-procedure care 

Immediately after treatment: 

  • Keep the injected area clean 
  • Take pain relief such as Paracetamol if required 
  • Do not rub, massage or put pressure on the injected area 
  • Avoid intense exercise for 24 hours post-treatment as well as exposure to heat
  • Abstain from consuming any alcohol in that same 24 hour period 
  • Do not apply any makeup or use skincare products that have active ingredients such as retinol for 24 hours 

2 weeks following treatment: 

Please do not undergo any skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.

Who is unsuitable for anti-wrinkle injections?

Mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not be having this procedure.

How long does it take to see results?

Generally, results will start to appear around 7 to 14 days post-treatment. We advise you to avoid alcohol for at least 1 week before having anti-wrinkle injections. You should also cease aspirin and any anti-inflammatory medications you have been taking 2 weeks before this treatment to help prevent bruising from appearing.
