The results from wrinkle relaxing injections are not immediate and it can take up to 10 days for your treatment to take effect and for the results to be fully obvious.
Wrinkle Injections After Procedure
You will be able to move your face after treatment. The ‘frozen’ look that is commonly associated with Wrinkle Relaxing injectables is caused when too much toxin is administered into one area. At The Private Clinic our qualified practitioners aim to give you the most natural-looking results by only targeting the specific muscles responsible for the wrinkles and fine lines meaning that your normal facial expressions will be unaffected.
The effects from Wrinkle Relaxing injections can last from three to six months, at which point you can make an appointment for your next round of treatment. Clinical studies indicate that this treatment has a cumulative effect, so you should need fewer injections as time goes on. For the best results we recommend that you exercise and use the treated muscles areas for a few hours after treatment by frowning or lifting the eyebrows which allows the toxin to reach all of the muscle.
After you have had wrinkle relaxing injections at The Private Clinic we offer you a check-up appointment 2 weeks later so we can review your results. Leaving the clinic you will be able to carry on with your daily activities although it is recommended that for 24 hours post-procedure you avoid;
- Strenuous exercise
- Rubbing or massaging the face
- Tight headwear (if treated in the forehead)
- We also recommend that you try and keep upright for at least 4 hours. You may experience some redness in the treated areas but this should fade over the course of the day, bruising after treatment is rare but it will fade over 48 hours.

We usually advise for patients to not wear any make-up for at least 4 hours after having treatment but this mainly because we don’t want you applying pressure to the face whilst you apply the products.
We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-procedure. This is down to the risk of bruising and the Botulinum Toxin substance moving to other areas of your face. We also recommend avoiding activities such as yoga or pilates for 24 hours as inverted positions can also cause the substance to move to other muscles in the face whilst it is still settling.
