Myth 1: They Hurt

While everyone’s pain tolerance varies, most people describe the sensation of anti-wrinkle injections as minimal discomfort, often compared to a slight pinching or stinging feeling. The procedure is relatively quick, and a skilled practitioner can use a number of techniques to minimise discomfort. This may involve using a topical numbing cream prior to the injections.


Myth 2: They Work Immediately

Anti-wrinkle injections do not work immediately. While individual timelines may vary slightly depending on the treatment area, it typically takes between three and five days for it to start to work. It will, however, be between 10 and 14 days before you see the complete result. Once you do see results, the effect will last around three or four months. Note, these injections may be less effective for those over 60 years of age.


Myth 3: They Result in a ‘Frozen’ Look

When administered by a skilled practitioner, anti-wrinkle injections do not freeze your face or eliminate your ability to express emotions. The goal is to relax targeted muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles while allowing natural facial movements. With the right dosage and placement, the results are subtle and natural-looking.


Myth 4: They are Only for Older People

Anti-wrinkle injections can help with a variety of concerns, regardless of age. Wrinkles can appear at any age and anti-wrinkle injections are not limited to people over a certain age. Specific concerns, such as crow’s feet, can affect people of any age across the spectrum. These injections can work as a preventive measure to delay the formation of deeper wrinkles.
