Everyone is an individual, and we all look different. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and this also applies to our aesthetic and the way that we age. This is why there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, and even if there was, it would look ridiculous if applied to everyone in the same manner. There are many factors that play apart in how each of us age and anti-wrinkle injections can be used in many areas of the face and body to help improve the areas appearance. Reducing the formation of expression lines with anti-wrinkle injections is the well-known method of reducing wrinkles in certain parts of the face, and it is very possible to do this in a ‘natural’ looking way. It is also possible to elevate some features of the face, such as the brow, and reshape the face using the same anti-wrinkle injections.

When we use muscles of the face over and over again to make the same expression, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear with time. After a while they can become what we call static lines. Reducing the muscle contraction helps to reduce the formation of those lines, and this is where anti-wrinkle injections come in. They block the signal from the nerve to the muscle reducing the ability of that muscle to contract. This makes the wrinkles relax and soften, and helps to prevent them from getting any worse.

They can also be used to alter the position of skin and facial features to enhance particular areas of the face.

The team at PLATINUM will listen to you, discuss your concerns, and advise you on how best to combat them. The amount of AWI administered and the position of the injections determine the result, so if you are after a 'natural' result this can be achieved.

AWI are administered with tiny needles, and at PLATINUM we use a topical 'ice stick' that helps take the sting out of the injection.

Your initial AWI treatment at PLATINUM will be a little longer than every time you come back after this. We need you to have a consultation, medical assessment, and discussion about the results you would like to achieve. The actual injecting process takes considerably less time, but that doesn't mean we are in a rush to get you out the door.

With AWI, the results can take up to 14 days to be in full effect, however they gradually start kicking in from day 2-4 onwards.

Your PLATINUM clinician will go through all the relevant possible side effects at your consultation, however the most common side effects are temporary bruising and slight redness at the injection sites. Another possible side effect is a 'look that you don't like' such as a heavy brow or droopy eyelid. We take a conservative approach to avoid these type of complications however we recommend coming back for a review 2 weeks post treatment so we can assess the results of your treatment.

The longevity of each treatment has numerous variable factors. The drug itself will never last any longer, but the results are affected other factors such as the amount injected, your muscle mass, your skin condition, and the placement of the treatment. Generally you should get 3-5 months out of your treatment, taking into account that the less that is injected, the shorter the longevity will be for that treatment.

No. At PLATINUM Cosmetics we wont inject you under these circumstances. Family is everything. Wrinkles can wait.
