Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, revealing a more youthful you.
These results are subtle, non-invasive and long-lasting. Botox® is the most recognised brand of botulinum toxin and has become a household name but there are other toxins such as Azzalure® and Bocouture® which will have the same effect. Botulinum toxin treatment is probably the best-known aesthetic treatment available for lines and wrinkles (typically frown, forehead and crow’s feet lines).
Want to know how to ensure that your skin is the best it can be? We recommend coming in for a Skin Vitality Consultation with Dr Sam Robson, our new in-depth skin health assessment. We also offer an express 30-minute Skin Assessment. Either of these can be added on when making your appointment. Find out more below!
WHAT HAPPENS AT MY APPOINTMENT?
Following an initial consultation to discuss the aims of the treatment, risks, side effects and downtime you will be asked to sign a consent form and photographs will be taken of the area prior to being treated. Your face will be cleansed and treatment performed(takes around 10 minutes). After care advice will be given and a review appointment arranged for 2-4 weeks’ time where further treatment may be provided if required.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Typically results may last up to 3 months although this can be affected by lifestyle (exercise, diet, alcohol, smoking and sun exposure), skin quality, metabolism, autoimmune conditions and medications. Over time, some patients report results lasting longer sometimes 4-6 months – each patient will make their own mind up as to when they require further treatments but we would recommend between 3-6 months to achieve long term benefits of Botox.
WHERE ARE POTENTIAL TREATMENT AREAS?
- Frown line(s)
- Crow’s feet
- Dimpled/pebbled chin
- Forehead lines
- Sagging chin line
- Décolletage/chest treatments
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
- Raising mouth corners
- Gummy smile correction
- Softening and narrowing jawline
- Bunny lines treatment
- Lifting nose tip
- Teeth grinding
- Softening ‘smoker’s lines’
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER TREATMENT?
Full aftercare advice will be given at your appointment but generally avoid massaging your face or having a facial (for up to one week) and avoid alcohol or exercise for 24hrs following treatment.
Do move your muscles for the next ½ hour (as you remember) to encourage the muscles to take up the toxin. Go back to your normal life – there is no downtime!
WHEN SHOULD I START HAVING TREATMENT?
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections are for when you notice that you have lines / signs of ageing that you don’t like or when you notice that your resting face is showing an emotion that you don’t feel – like looking angry or having lots of lines when you are concentrating. Wrinkle Relaxing Injections enable you to be more proactive about slowing down the ageing process and stop the lines from becoming more permanent. Wrinkle Relaxing Injections can be the ideal treatment for you if you feel you are beginning to see lines on the upper face when you are relaxed. This treatment enables you to be proactive in slowing down the ageing process and can improve the appearance of existing static lines over time.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Prices start from £160 for one area (depending on which practitioner you see)
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You may start to see the results almost immediately – you can feel the difference before you see it – but usually between 3-7 days. Final effects will be seen at 2 weeks (which is when we review and tweak if required). Over time, patients report results occurring more quickly, within a few hours or days rather than taking up to 2 weeks to get the full effects.
WHO WILL I SEE?
Dr. Sam Robson, Medical Director
Sophie Ritchie, Aesthetic Nurse
