Wrinkle Treatment (Cosmetic Injections)

Wrinkle treatment consists of injections to reduce the frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and the crow's feet around the eyes.

 
 

What is Wrinkle Treatment?

A minute quanity of Botulinum Toxin A is injected into the muscles that cause these dynamic lines. The injection temporarily prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscle and as a result the muscle relaxes and the lines and wrinkles become smoother and less pronounced. These treatments are simple and effective with minimal swelling or redness and have a proven track record for effectiveness. You would expect to see results in 4-7 days.

What it can’t do

Wrinkle injections cannot lift or plump loose or sagging skin. These areas can be treated with Dermal Filler injections to plump the lines or possibly a MACS facelift. Wrinkle injections and Dermal fillers can be combined to give a non-surgical facelift. Dermal Fillers are offered by our experienced Aesthetic Nurse Practitioners or a free consultation is offered by our Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons to discuss the MACS facelift procedure.

What is involved?

Following a free consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse practitioner or Doctor you will be assessed and advised of the most suitable treatment for you. Treatment can take as little as 20 minutes and you will be able to return to normal activities immediately afterwards. The smoothing effects of the first treatment typically lasts for up to 3-4 months. You will need to return for regular 3 monthly treatments during the first year as the optimum results are obtained if the next treatment is performed before the effects of the previous treatment has worn off. With repeated treatments the relaxed and softened effects will last longer.

Possible side effects

Side effects, if they occur are usually temporary and mild to moderate, and are typically linked to the injections e.g. pain on injection, redness, swelling etc. In very rare cases, the spread of botulinum toxin into nearby muscles is possible when high doses are injected, hence the need to see a specialist in this field.
