ANTI – WRINKLE TREATMENT
These are targeted muscle treatments using a drug called Botulinum Toxin Type A to temporarily block or paralyse the muscle preventing it contracting and moving. Keeping certain muscles in a relaxed state has huge anti-ageing benefits by softening the appearance of static (at rest) and preventing dynamic (movement) lines.
The repetition of the muscles contracting and moving pull the overlying skin and are responsible for the lines forming between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes. Treating these areas has now gained FDA approval and validity and is an exceptional treatment for the upper face.
Lower face treatments are performed and work well in certain muscles; examples of these are relaxing the upper lip, muscle that pulls the corner of the mouth down, chin, jaw and neck muscles. However these are off-license (manufacturing) treatments and are given by experienced medical practitioners which we provide.
HOW DOES ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS WORK?
The treatment works by injecting the muscles that are causing the lines with tiny amounts of a drug called Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox or Azzalure or Bocouture) which temporarily blocks the muscle activity so enhances relaxation and smoother looking skin.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
There is minimal downtime. This is a non-invasive and effective treatment after which you can go about your normal activities.
DOES IT HURT?
Discomfort is minimal with this treatment. The needle used is very small and feels like nothing more than a pin prick.
IS THE TREATMENT SAFE?
This treatment has an excellent safety record. It has been used cosmetically to treat facial wrinkles for over 15 years and has become one of the most popular and frequently used cosmetic treatments.
HOW LONG WILL THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The treatment itself takes around 20 minutes. A full medical history and assessment will be undertaken with documented photography of before and after pictures to monitor your results.
WILL I SEE RESULTS QUICKLY?
You may see effects as early as 3-4 days yet maximum results are seen around 14-21 days after which you will be invited to return to decide if any adjustment is needed, this is part of your treatment.
WHO CAN HAVE THE TREATMENT?
This treatment is for both men and women over the age of 18 years who have been assessed by a medical practitioner to have overactive muscle activity. Very few people with certain medical conditions cannot have Botulinum Toxin Type A. Exclusions: pregnancy and breast-feeding.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Typically effects of Botox last up to three to four months and recommended treatment is once every 3-4 months.
When the effects of Botox injections wear off muscles will start moving again fully and repetition of the muscles contracting and relaxing will cause the wrinkles|lines to appear again. However keeping up to treatments helps you to train your facial muscles to relax and over time you may find you are able to extend your treatments.
