ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS

Anti wrinkle injections – Commonly known as Botox,  are a non-invasive, quick, affordable, and effective way to help reduce and prevent wrinkle formation that provides natural-looking results, creating a refreshed and youthful look

What is Botox?

Botox is a neurotoxin which when injected carefully into the dynamic facial muscles, block the nerve receptors which cause expression lines and wrinkles. The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a more youthful appearance. Botox is used to smooth out lines such as crows feet, Forehead and Glabella lines and lines down the side of the nose (bunny lines). These can leave you looking tired, angry and older than your years.

How do wrinkles form?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. With age, our skin gets thinner and drier as we lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid and the skins ability to protect itself is reduced. Eventually, wrinkles, creases and lines form in our skin. Continuous muscle contraction is also another major contributor to facial wrinkles. continuous muscle movement causes ‘dynamic wrinkles’ which only appear when the muscle is used. If untreated, these wrinkles can become ‘static wrinkles’ which means they become permanently etched in our skin.

Prevention

Anti Wrinkle Injections – Botox – main purpose is to temporarily improve existing lines, it can also be used as a preventative measure to help soften the expression lines that form when your face moves and put the formation of future lines on pause. Preventative treatment uses Botox to treat wrinkles before they emerge by slowing down the use of those muscles, preventing deep lines from developing.

Symmetry

Anti-Wrinkle Injectables can do more than just reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles; they can also be used to lift certain parts of the face and balance asymmetrical features.

Due to a lack of clinical studies investigating the effects of Botox on pregnant women, we can’t be sure that Botox is safe to use during pregnancy. As such, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) advises pregnant women not have Botox.

The 4 Hour Rule:
  • Try to Exaggerate and exercise your muscle movement after botox treatment. (This will work the injection into your muscles)
  • Do not lay down for 4 hours after treatment
  • Avoid any exposure to a sauna, hot baths/ showers or tanning for 4 hours.
  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • No rubbing or massaging the treated areas for 24 hours- as botox can migrate
  • Do not apply make up for at least 24 hours.
  • Do not drink alcohol, eat spicy foods for 4 hours
  • Do not take ( either before or after the treatment) Ibuprofen, aspirin or other anti-inflammatory as this may increase bruising.
  • You may experience a mild headache after the treatment, if this does happen you may take paracetamol as needed.
 
Top Up’s:
  • If we feel that your muscle is particularly resistant, and you require a top up treatment, you have a 4 week window from initial treatment to have this.
  • It takes 14 days for botulinum toxin to fully work, therefore we ask for this initial time to pass before your top up, then you have a further 2 – week window to have any top ups or adjustments.
