Our experts provide an array of anti-wrinkle treatments including skin resurfacing, and others that all reduce the appearance of wrinkles revealing a smoother, younger appearance.
As we approach our mid-20s, we start developing engraved lines on our skin due to many reasons including repetitive skin folding while making expressions, sun exposure and genetic factors. Sun exposure on its own speeds up collagen and elastin loss which renders the skin weak making it more viable to fracture with expressions and cause those static wrinkles. What we can offer is to delay this process by slightly weakening those strong muscle contractions which cause the skin to fold.
There is very little information known about this matter. It has been reflected that cabin pressure is able to move liquids around. Hence, the reason for swelling after a flight. The worry here would be if Anti-wrinkle was to land in muscles it should not be in leading to side effects such as lid ptosis. To guard against such mishaps, 5 days would be recommended before flying. Again, as with flying, strenuous physical activity may have similar effects which is the relocation of Anti-wrinkle to unintended muscles. We recommend not wearing make-up for 24 hours post-treatment, even after the 24 hours, be gentle when applying on treated areas.
The injections are given using very fine needles, therefore minimal to no pain. There may also be a little swelling or bruising immediately after you’ve been treated. This is usually very minor and, in most cases, disappears in 30 minutes. There are no long-term side effects with anti-wrinkle injections as they are temporary.
Again, each patient is unique with a different skin condition, genetic background and so on. Anti-wrinkle injections are considered suitable for most age groups, provided you are above 18 years of age. As anti-wrinkle injections only work on the muscle underneath the skin, it is recommended to begin your journey before static (engraved) wrinkles appear on your skin’s surface.
As stated above, every individual patient differs in the longevity of results. Factors such as environmental, smoking, alcohol consumption, excessive physical activity and medical conditions such as an overactive thyroid gland may all play a role in the faster resolution of results. In general, treatment results may last anywhere between 8-20 weeks. We would recommend repetition of treatment every 12-16 weeks to benefit from an enhanced effect.
Dr. Ibrahim is truly one of the best practitioners I have been to. Having been to Dr. Ibrahim many times I always feel confident leaving the clinic. He takes time to speak to his patients during the consultation and will always give his honest opinion. The attention to detail is outstanding. The clinic is state of the art and so clean. Staff are very welcoming, overall a great experience and I look forward to returning.
Absolutely wonderful Dr Wasfi is so knowledgeable and pays such attention to the details. It’s a pleasure to go with such faith that you’ll always have great results. I would highly recommend him to anyone
Dr Ibrahim was extremely informative both about my appointment and all areas aesthetics. My appointment wasn’t rushed and I will be back for my anti wrinkle and other treatments. Beautiful clinic and Aisling at reception is fabulous. An all around great experience. I will be sending all my clients his way!
Such a fab clinic. Very impressed from the minute I walked in the door. Extremely private and really nice relaxing atmosphere. Dr. Ibrahim took he's time and explained everything in detail to me. It was my first time having profilo and have my next session booked. Looking forward to it.
I've been a client of Dr Ibrahim since August 2019. I went initially for a problem with the alignment of my eyebrows, one was considerably higher than the other. He treated it with Botox and the result was amazing. I have continued with this treatment every 4/5 months or so since. Now I'm considering other treatments, I'm 55 and noticing volume loss. I have no hesitation in recommending his services, and he presents a wonderful modern welcoming clinic.
