What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Do you feel like you are lacking in confidence owing to your skin’s aging appearance? You are not alone. Sadly, countless studies have shown that individuals with wrinkled or sagging skin are less likely to succeed in the business or corporate world, and may also be at a detriment when it comes to dating and building other interpersonal relationships.
Anti-wrinkle injections also known as muscle relaxing injections can help. This simple process of nearly painless injections can transform your skin, take years off of your age and revitalise the way that you feel about your physical appearance. This can lead to higher levels of confidence and a better overall attitude about your goals, career and relationships.
These small wrinkles and lines around the eyes are the sign of aging vision (which causes us to squint more often), sun damage and simply from smiling and laughing often! Botox injections relax the muscles nearby to allow these wrinkles to fade away.
No one wants frown lines – they signify someone who is disgruntled rather than someone who loves life! That said, even if you rarely frown, these lines can rapidly increase over time, causing your nose and forehead to age far faster than is necessary and giving you a stern or angry appearance. Botox will allow those muscles to relax and erase these harsh lines, giving you back your youthful glow.
These common wrinkle lines run horizontally across your forehead and can give away your age before you even say a word. Caused by common facial expressions, these wrinkles are almost impossible to prevent, but are now simple to remove with Botox injections.
Bunny lines are small, tell tale lines that appear around the nose and upper lip, and are caused by common expressions and laughter. No amount of skin cream or moisturizer can prevent these, but Botox can help to smooth the skin around your nose dramatically.
A small amount of Botulinum toxin is injected near the nostrill and nose to mouth fold to weaken the muscles and drop the elevation of the upper lip transforming your new smile! You will be showing less gum and have much more confidence when smiling. The full result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment and lasts 4-6 months
Botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles of the jaw (called the masseter muscle) to weaken the muscle and reduce its size changing an overly square jawline to a more attractive oval or heart shaped face.
What are muscle-relaxing injecions?
It is a natural protein that is derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, and has undergone a safe and rigorous purification process. This strain has been used in hospital and clinical settings since 1977, and as a key treatment in the cosmetic surgery industry for over twenty years. The natural proteins found in the botulinum are able to relax the facial muscles that are known to contribute to wrinkles, fine lines and other visible signs of aging, and they are a safe and effective treatment for anyone who wants to look and feel better about their skin.
Is is Safe?
We only use genuine, original products sourced from reputable pharmacies. The brands we use have many years of medical research and studies, and are used extensively in many different areas of medicine to treat conditions as diverse as cerebral palsy, hyperhidrosis, migraine headaches and many other ailments. This is a completely safe treatment utilised in over seventy countries, and is happily chosen by millions of patients every year.
How does it work?
The injection procedure is fast, efficient and nearly painless. We use a very fine needle to inject just a few drops of the protein into the muscle that is causing the wrinkle to form. The toxin then takes effect by preventing the nerve’s impulses from stimulating the muscle as it normally would. As a result, the problem-causing muscle relaxes and your wrinkles fade and diminish. While the target area becomes soft and smooth, all of your face’s other muscles are unaffected and normal facial expressions are maintained.
Does it hurt?
Other than a slight pinprick feeling of the injection itself, the entire experience is nearly painless – many clients claim that it feels much like acupuncture or facial waxing. Some clients feel a very mild burning sensation, but this wears off often within a few minutes. The treatment time is usually no more than fifteen minutes, and you can immediately go back to your daily life.
How will I look after my injections?
We know you will look wonderful! You may notice a few tiny pinpricks – these are the marks from the injections, and they will disappear within a matter of hours. Wrinkle-relaxing treatments require no recuperation period – you can immediately go back to your normal life, and you can even apply mineral make up to the site within minutes.
Does it look natural?
We have been in the skincare business for a long time, and the overwhelming feedback is that our clients are thrilled with their new, natural and younger look. Wrinkle-relaxing injections give your face a subtle, fresh appearance and most of our clients tell us that no one – not even their partner or closest friends realises they’ve had any cosmetic treatment done! You will look healthy, glowing and rejuvenated, as we take a personalised approach to every one of our clients, and we know how to avoid the ‘frozen’ or ‘drooping ‘ effects of the treatment’s early days. We know that less is more, and that you want to look young, pretty and relaxed.
How long do the effects last?
Results may be noticeable within days but it often takes up to two weeks for the maximum results to be seen which will give your face a smooth, well-rested appearance for around three to four months. We have found that when a client returns regularly for follow up treatments the muscles reduce in size and the beautiful effects can last much longer. Amazingly, the latest scientific research shows that clients who undergo treatments regularly for a few years see their wrinkles permanently disappear.
Are there any side effects or complications?
Most of our clients experience absolutely no side effects at all, but a small percentage rarely may experience headaches, slight bruising and heaviness but all of these usually resolve within a matter of days.
Theoretically, some people may face an allergy to anti-wrinkle injections, but this is incredibly rare. Very rare complications can include ptosis (droopy eyes caused by toxin migrating from an upper eyelid injection to the elevator muscles), photosensitivity and dry eyes. A very small percentage of clients will develop antibodies to the botulinum that may cause the treatment to become ineffective, but if this is the case you can always attempt the procedure again in the future, or your practitioner may recommend for you an alternative.
Wrinkle relaxing or Anti-wrinkle treatments are priced per area. An area can be the frown lines, crows feet, forehead lines, bunny lines, gummy smile. Please note when wanting the forehead lines treated, it must be combined with the frown lines treatment.
|Each additional area||£50|
You should avoid getting anti-wrinkle injections if you are experiencing any of the following:
- Pregnancy and/or lactation.
- Current or recent treatment with a certain class of rarely prescribed antibiotics, known as the amino glycosides.
- Any current or recent infection in the vicinity of the injection site
- Blood clotting disorders, or current therapy with drugs that can inhibit blood clotting, e.g. Warfarin.
- Any diseases that affects the muscles, particularly myasthenia gravis.
- Allergy to tetanus toxoid is a potential problem, but it is not an absolute contraindication. More information is available at your consultation appointment.
Prior to your treatment
You should not drink any alcohol or take aspirin in the twenty four hours before your treatment. Ensure that you inform your practitioner of any history of bronchitis, pneumonia and /or problems with breathing.
After treatment care
It is advised that you do not touch the recently treated area for approximately three to four hours, and remain upright during this time. It is best to avoid facial massage or any electrical stimulation to your face for at least seven days and avoid alcohol for the following twelve hours. Do not overstretch, kneel or bend excessively during the two days following your treatment, and do not fly for seventy two hours. Strenuous exercise, hot baths, showers or saunas should be avoided too. Keeping your facial muscles active after the procedure will help the treatment to take effect.
Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
