ANTI WRINKLE

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Botulinum Toxin is considered an effective procedure for the reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the uppermost third of the face. Injection of Botulinum Toxin into the muscles under facial wrinkles causes relaxation of those muscles, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin. Botulinum Toxin is usually visable three days after treatment and is maximally visible two weeks following injection.

ANTI WRINKLE FAQ’S

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as ‘Botox’ , short for Botulinum toxin. This is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out wrinkles. It is the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatment for the removal of wrinkles.*

Who should have Anti-wrinkle injections?

They are the treatment of choice for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes which they wish to reduce.

What will the treatment involve?

The treatment will involve a doctor making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes.

Does it hurt?

The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?

Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and does not reach any other part of the body.

What happens after treatment?
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.
After 4-10 days you will notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles, and this result will last approximately 3-4 months.*
What areas can benefit from an anti-wrinkle injection?

Anti – wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places:

  • Forehead/brow
  • Between the eyes
  • Sides of the eyes
How long do the effects of an anti-wrinkle injection last?
The results usually last for around four months, after which you may wish to return for another treatment.*
What are the possible side effects?

Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
