ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS

What is it?

Faces have various muscles to allow us to display our emotions. In our youth our skin is taut and any skin folds created by our facial muscles quickly disappear. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, meaning the folds don't disappear but leave unwanted lines and wrinkles, giving a tired, aged look.

There are 2 types of lines; dynamic lines that move with our muscles and static lines that do not move. Static lines depending on their depth can be more difficult to treat but can be reduced with other treatments. Botulinum toxin Type A (Botox) works exceptionally well on dynamic lines. Botulinum toxin Type A relaxes the muscles and puts them to sleep for up to 16 weeks. When injected into specific facial muscles, this will reduce contractions, diminish wrinkles and give a more youthful appearance.

What Happens next?

A full assessment of suitability prior to treatment, discussion of potential side effects and areas you wish to be treatment. A private prescription will be ordered, therefore you will not be able to receive your treatment on the day of assessment as the prescription takes 24 hours to be delivered. This will allow you to have time to ensure that you want to go ahead with the treatment.

Procedure

This takes approximately 30 minutes. An appropriate dose will be drawn up and injected using very fine needles. This causes minimal discomfort. A full explanation will be undertaken at your consultation.

Recovery

There may be small areas of initial swelling / redness caused by the skin being injected, however this settles within a few hours. This procedure can be carried out in your lunch break. An initial effect will be seen in around 3-5 days, and a full effect within 14 days. A review will be required after 21 days. Treatment usually lasts 4 months.

Treatment Cost

A £20 deposit is required at time of booking to cover prescription costs and will be reimbursed onto your final payment.
