ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS / BOTOX
What is Anti Wrinkle/ Botox® Treatment?
Botulinum Toxin is a molecule which stops the small muscles in the face from working and hence stops the formation and deepening of wrinkles. Botulinum Toxins are prescription only medications and can only be prescribed by regulated prescribers. It is very important you see a medically qualified practitioner for Botox treatments.
Which areas can I treat?
We can treat the following areas:
- Forehead (horizontal forehead lines when your eyebrows are raised)
- Frown lines (vertical lines on the forehead)
- Crows feet (smile lines around eyes)
- Chemical Brow Lift
You can choose a combination of which areas you want treated.
HOW IS THE TREATMENT ADMINISTERED?
We use a thin injection in the areas we want to treat and is by far our quickest treatment. It takes roughly 2-3 minutes to complete the entire treatments. Usually it takes 2-3 injections per area.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
There is some element of swelling after the treatment however this is quite minimal as we use a very fine needle. An ice pack can be used on the area and the swelling will settle down within 48 hours.
Anti- Wrinkle Injections
All our appointments are 1 hour long. Don't worry the treatment does not take that long! We keep them this length to take a thorough medical history and also to take our time to understand your expectations.
Of course you can! There is absolutely no down time in this treatment. Do note that you may have some swelling after the treatment.
Yes you can but we recommend at least waiting 4 hours after the treatment. The reason for this is to reduce the risk of infection.
Good question! This is how long it takes for the Botulinum Toxin to attach to the receptors and start to be effective.
This very much depends on person to person. Some people find they need a top up every 3 months whereas some people find it lasts them much longer.
We offer a free follow up at 2 weeks to check for any side effects.
