Natural signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles, can make us look and feel older and this can have a negative effect on self-esteem and confidence. In recent years, anti wrinkle treatment techniques have become increasingly popular, with an increasing number of people looking for ways to preserve their youthful looks and keep visible signs of ageing at bay.
We offer a free consulation prior to treatment and discuss the best treatment mode for you. We have a range of options available including fillers, laser, radiofrequency and many more.
It works by temporarily weakening and relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles, resulting in a younger looking appearance.It is safe, effective and quick with a few, virtually painless, injections under the skin.The effects are outstanding which is why this treatment is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world!
HOW DOES IT WORK
Treatment blocks the nerve impulses to the facial muscles that have been injected. This reduces the activity of the muscles and therefore softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
WHEN DO I NOTICE THE EFFECTS
The time taken to notice effects varies from person to person. The full effect can take up to 2 weeks following treatment. We review the results at this point to ensure you are happy with the results.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST
You can initially expect full effects for 3-6 months. The results have known to last much longer the more treatments you have. When used over a period of time it can prevent the occurrence of new lines. If you decide to stop treatment, any lines and wrinkles will gradually reappear. The results and longevity will vary from person to person.
WILL IT HURT?
The discomfort, if any, is usually minimal and short–lived. This is because the amount administered is very small and via a tiny needle. There is therefore no need for local anaesthesia.
WHAT AREAS CAN I GET TREATED:
The areas we treat are frown lines between the eyes, worry lines across the forehead, and 'crow's feet' around the outer eye area. You can treat many other areas too but speak to our clinicians to make sure it is the right treatment for you.
Treatments are also available to reduce underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis).
IS IT SAFE?
Millions of people worldwide have had these injections and the safety of the product is well established. Treatment has safely been used for many medical conditions, such as Cerebral palsy; focal spasticity associated with stroke; blepharospasm; Hemifacial spasm.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Although rare and uncommon, a few side effects have been known to occur. You may experience mild bruising, numbness, or tenderness at the injection site, a mild headache and very occasionally the treatment may not work as some people are immune to the effects of Anti-wrinkle injections. There is a very small risk, less than 1%, of developing a temporary drooping eyelid when injecting close to the eye.
CAN I HAVE TREATMENT?
Anyone who has a neuromuscular disorder, such as myasthenia gravis, or anyone on Aminoglycoside antibiotics should not have the treatment. We also do not treat women who are pregnant, nursing, or who are trying to become pregnant.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
For six hours after treatment we advise that you avoid exercise, hot baths or alcohol as these can increase blood flow and dilute the effect. It is important to avoid touching the area injected, as this may actually push the product beyond the intended area.
