Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections (Botulinum toxin)
The procedure involves the injection of Botulinum Toxin A (also known as Botox) into targeted areas to reduce wrinkles.
Botox has been used for over 35 years and is a protein that blocks the nerve signals which tells muscles to work.
How does it work?
When you concentrate, squint, frown or smile the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent.
When the muscles in our face move, a message is sent via nerves from the brain to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables work by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injectables?
Will I be able to move my face?
Of course! The ‘frozen’ look many of us associate with anti-wrinkle injectables is only caused when too much toxin is administered into one area. During your consultation we will discuss how the treatment can be used for subtle effects so no one need know your secret.
What happens after my treatment?
The injections themselves are relatively painless, as both the needles used and the volumes injected are very small. As with any injections, small areas of bruising may be seen afterwards, but this is unusual, and if present they are invariably mild and easily concealed.
The injections usually start to produce an effect within 2-3 days, but it may take up to 2 weeks for maximum benefits to be seen. Results of the treatment usually last between 3 and 6 months.
Before you leave the clinic at the end of your treatment, we will book you in for a free check-up 2 weeks later, so that we can review the results of your treatment once it has taken full effect. We can also book your next appointment in 3-4 months times to ensure you maintain your new look.
