ANTI WRINKLE

We use Anti-wrinkle Injections to aid visual rejuvenation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The injection sites are within the muscle, where a specific type of botulinum toxin is injected which prevents the muscles from contracting and causes any wrinkles to relax and soften. Anti wrinkle injections can really help improve the overall appearance of the face and skin, here are some of the benefits:

• Dramatically reduces visible signs of ageing, fine lines & wrinkles

• You will look refreshed, younger and more vibrant

• Enhance your natural beauty

• Rejuvenated skin

• Speedy results

• No downtime

• Non- invasive procedure

  • Are they safe?
    The risks of complications arising with dermal fillers are very rare. Overall, they are a very safe procedure if carried out correctly and ethically by a skilled practitioner with adequate aftercare and good quality products. Problems are rare but can include: • Infection • Lumps in the injection site • The filler moving away from the intended treatment area (migration) • Vascular occlusion (very rare) If problems do occur filler can be removed quickly and efficiently by your practitioner.
  • Am I suitable?
    People who are in good physical health and do not have any underlying health conditions that could affect healing are generally considered suitable candidates. Other factors include not being a smoker and not having deep lines or other issues that a facelift or other surgical procedure would work better. You will need a full consultation before your treatment to ensure you are a suitable candidate. For safety reasons all patients with a medical history including anaphylactic reactions, severe allergies, severe organic or physical illnesses, autoimmune disease or diabetes, as well as women who are pregnant or breast feeding are excluded from this treatment.
  • How often do I need them?
    The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months although some dermal fillers can last up to five years.
  • Are they safe?
    It is regarded as a safe treatment. The Aqualyx manufacturer has reported no major side effects.

    Some people may see an improvement after 1-2 session but up to 8 may be required depending on the amount of fat in the area. Chins, where there is less fat for example, may require one treatment while hips or thighs may require repeated treatments. Treatments will usually be spaced 4 weeks apart.
  • Are they safe?
    This treatment is extremely safe given that it is found in nature and is an essential part of the skin. Side effects are minimal and include temporary redness, bruising and rarely palpable lumps, which are not visible and quickly dissolve into the skin.
  • Am I suitable?
    Skin boosters are very safe and suitable for most people as they contain naturally occurring products that we already produce in our bodies, we do still require a full consultation before administering the treatment to ensure you are suitable.

    Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, so it is passed through the urine. Excess amounts have not been shown to cause any harm. The most common side effect after the injection is irritation at the site of the injection which could last up to 5-10 minutes.

  • How often do I need them?
    Most people choose to have injections weekly for the first six weeks and every 3-4 weeks thereafter.
  • Are they safe?
    While the botulinum toxin that Botox is comprised of is dangerous in large doses, small doses are completely safe for injection purposes. In fact, the number of adverse effects of Botox reported between 1989 and 2003 was only 36. Of those 36 cases, 13 of them are believed to have been a result of an underlying condition and thus not Botox related. Although safe for use, there are some common side effects that may arise following your Botox treatment. You may experience some pain, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. Other patients experience headaches, fever, or chills. You can also experience heavy brows or droopy eyelids all these side effects are extremely rare and very temporary and will wear off over a few days / weeks. These are all common and considered to be minor side effects which should resolve within a day or two.
  • Am I suitable?
    We need to carry out a full consultation with you before treatment as this is a prescription only treatment you will be required to undergo a consultation beforehand in order to ascertain if you are suitable or not. For safety reasons all patients with a medical history including anaphylactic reactions, severe allergies, severe organic or physical illnesses, autoimmune disease or diabetes, as well as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are excluded from this treatment.
  • How often do I need them?
    This depends totally on the individual some people need treatments every 6 months others every three months. It depends totally on how your body reacts to the product we use for you and how your body breaks it down. We usually say between 3-6 months.

AFTERCARE

Try to exercise your treated muscles for the first hour after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows or squinting). This helps to work the treatment into your muscles. Although this may help your procedure outcome, it will NOT impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this. 


DO NOT have a facial, nor rub or massage the treated area for first 24 hours after your treatment
.

DO NOT lie down or do strenuous exercise for three hours after treatment. Also, avoid any exposure to a sauna, hot tub or tanning for at least 4 days after treatment. SPF 30- 50. Avoid exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. This will prevent your blood pressure from rising and thus minimise the risk of bruising after treatment. 


AVOID alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.

Please be aware that some, though very few patients, experience a mild headache. You may take paracetamol to help with this for pain relief. Avoid aspirin based products, no ibuprofen for the first 3-4 days.

Be assured that tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours after your 
treatment. There is a small risk of bruising. If this occurs, do not worry since it will only be temporary and can easily be covered up with makeup. Any little bit of bruising may last up to one week 
.

After Botox is place into the targeted muscles, the weakening effect gradually begins anywhere from 3-7 days and is not complete for two weeks. Therefore, optimal results are not seen for at least two weeks .

Botox will last approximately 2-3 months at first. However, if you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended, the duration of each treatment result may last longer than four months.

After two weeks we will asses your results and if a top up is required we will administer this for you, this is to make sure you have optimal results and to correct any uneven movement you may have. Please note top ups are not always required and are not a standard part of the procedure if you do not need one we will not administer “just because” so please bare this in mind.

Although they are very rare, there are some adverse effects associated with having Botox. After treatment you’ll receive full aftercare instructions, including a list of potential side effects. They include:

  • Excessive bruising, swelling or redness at injection site

  • Infection

  • Nausea, headache or flu-like symptoms

  • Occasional numbness

  • Drooping eyebrow or upper eyelid

  • Red and swollen eyelids

  • Muscle weakness

  • Allergic reactions

  • Rash and itchiness

  • Facial swelling
