Dr Shareka’s Facts about Anti-Wrinkle Injections

All too often people have many misconceptions about anti-wrinkle injections because they don’t know the facts, and instead have listened to common false information.

Many believe that anti-wrinkle injections will leave them looking frozen and plastic, unable to make facial expressions or move naturally. While some people may choose to have this look, it is all dependent on the amount of botulinum toxin injected and personal choice. With the expertise of Dr Shareka, a natural, fresh, youthful look can be achieved.

To clear the air about anti-wrinkle injections once and for all, here are the answers to the worried questions we get every day:


How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles. This causes the muscle to relax, so it is unable to crease the skin.  This softens the appearance of a line or wrinkle, and the skin above the muscles becomes soft and smooth within 7 to 14 days. In this time the product settles and attaches itself to the nerve endings, gradually getting to work for a youthful and wrinkle-free transformation.  Dr Shareka’s botulinum of choice is BOTOX®, which is approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).


Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections really prevent ageing?

When used regularly, it has been reported that anti-wrinkle injectables can delay the signs of ageing.  Facial muscle movement causes lines and wrinkles.  Anti-wrinkle injections can restrict this movement, preventing lines, folds, and wrinkles from forming.
