Wrinkle Reduction

Wrinkle Reducing Treatment

Wrinkle treatment consists of multiple tiny injections, aimed at reducing frown lines on the forehead, lines between the eyebrows and the laughter lines or crows' feet around the eyes.

  • The treatment
  • A minute dose of Botulinum toxin A is injected into those facial muscles that show dynamic lines.
  • The injection temporarily prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles, which relax as a result.
  • Lines and wrinkles become smoother and less pronounced.
  • When this treatment is repeated, over time muscles previously used excessively in natural expressions will be used much less, leading the face almost to literally "forget" to use those muscles.
  • Depending on the dosage injected, strong facial expressions that cause lines, such as those of sadness, laughter and anger, will be affected though they will still be possible.
  • The treatment is simple and effective, with minimal swelling and/or redness. It has a proven track record for effectiveness.
  • You can expect results in four to seven days.

    • What the treatment can't do
  • Wrinkle injections cannot lift or plump loose or sagging skin.
  • These areas need to be treated with Dermal Filler injections to restore volume to the skin.
  • Wrinkle injections and Dermal fillers can be combined to give a non-surgical facelift.

    • What is involved?
  • Following a free consultation you will be assessed and advised of the most suitable treatment for you.
  • Treatment can take as little as 20 minutes and you will be able to return to normal activities (except sport) immediately afterwards.
  • The smoothing effects of the first treatment typically last for up to 3-4 months.
  • You will need to return for regular 3 monthly treatments during the first year, as optimal results are obtained if the next treatment is performed before the effects of the previous treatment have worn off.
  • With repeated treatments at regular intervals the relaxing, smoothening and softening effects will last longer.

    • Possible Side Effects

    Side-effects, if they occur, are usually temporary and mild to moderate, and typically linked to the injections; eg a slight burning sensation at the injection site, pain during the injection, and some bruising, redness and swelling at the injection site.

    A temporary drooping of the eyebrow or eyelid may occur. When injected around the eye, other possible side-effects are dry eyes or blurred vision. If any of these symptoms develop, we should be informed immediately. Very rarely, short-term numbness can develop in the treated area. Very occasionally, the body may generate antibodies or develop allergies to the Botulinum toxin A. An even rarer side-effect is generalised weakness or fatigue.

    Finally, any injection carries a small risk of infection, but the sterile conditions used during the treatments should avoid this.

    It is possible for Botulinum toxin to spread into nearby muscles if high doses are injected. However, since our aesthetic treatments use only very low doses the risk of this occurring is very low indeed.

    Though generally rare, all these side-effects make it essential that treatment should always be given by a skilled and knowledgeable aesthetic specialist.
