Wrinkle relaxing injections are suitable for almost anyone who have dynamic wrinkles or fine skin lines from facial expressions. These lines occur from repetitive movement such as squinting, smiling and frowning.
Lines and wrinkles are unfortunately just a natural sign of aging, but they can also develop through exposure to the sun and because of frowning.
Fine lines and wrinkles can make us look and feel older which can have a negative effect on our self-esteem and confidence. whilst the goal is to keep expressing emotion naturally we can reduce the appearance of these lines by wrinkle reducing injections resulting in a smoother revitalized, well rested look.
We offer a free complimentary consultation prior to your treatment and discuss the best treatment for you. We have a range of options available including fillers. Our most important consideration is YOU – your safety, your results and our relationship with you.
Brow and forehead lines
Glabella lines/ lines between eyebrows
Crow’s feet, lines around eyes
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 amazing which is why this treatment is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world!
When will I notice the effects?
The full effect can take up to 2 weeks following the 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.
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. 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 experience to all our patients.
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. We also treat the masseter muscles to reduce the width of your jaw to give a thinner V shaped outline to the shape.
Is it safe?
Millions of people worldwide have had these injections and the safety of the product is well established.
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 eyelid or eyebrow ptosis when injecting close to the eye.
Can I have the 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?
You may experience slight discomfort around the area, you should avoid aspirin and alcohol for 24 hours pre and post treatment. We advise not to wear make-up for the rest of the day
