Anti wrinkle injections
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. At botique we have over 4000 regular clients along with several thousand occasional clients. Its one of the most popular clinics in the East Midlands. We also have clients travelling as far as liverpool, leeds, london and some even further.
We offer a free consultation prior to treatment and discuss the best treatment method for you. We have a range of options available including fillers. We also pride ourselves on giving an honest opinion, so if we feel you dont need treatment or wont benefit from it we will tell you the best action is no action.
How does it work?
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!
When will 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 will 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. Most clinics use the cheapest needles available which are painful and blunt, we pride ourselves on quality so invest in using only the best FMS needles which although approximately 5 times more expensive are worth the added value in providing a painless experiance.
What areas can I have 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). We also treat the masseter muscles to reduce the width of your jaw to give a thinner V shaped outline to the shape. This is perticularly useful for those that may grind their teeth as it will ease this too.
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. We also recommend you dont use sunbeds or stay out in the sun for too long as this will weaken the effects of the botulinum toxin treatment.
