Wrinkle And Line Reduction
The wrinkles and lines on your face can be caused by ageing, lifestyle, sun damage, genetics and use or overuse of facial muscles; smoking, hormones and stress can also make wrinkles worse and lead to premature wrinkling.
Wrinkle treatments target specific facial muscles to create a smoother, more youthful appearance, most often on forehead lines, frown lines between the eye brows and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
The injection works by blocking nerve transmission between the nerve endings and the muscle fibres around the injection site to relax the muscle so that they don’t contract. The untreated facial muscles contract in the normal way, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
The aim of the treatment is to break the habit of frowning, and you can expect to notice results after about three days and complete effects are visible after about two weeks.
Treatment does not take very long – usually about 20 minutes, using a very fine needle in precise locations on the face. The effects of the treatment last for about 3-4 months. However clinical studies indicate that treatments last longer over time, so that you should require fewer injections in the future. These results vary from patient to patient.
What Products Do We Use?
Your specific treatment plan will depend on the cause of your wrinkles, which we will assess and discuss with you at your initial consultation. The injections are prescription drugs and should only be used under medical supervision, after face to face consultation.
What Does The Treatment Cost?
The cost of wrinkle reduction injections will depend on our particular needs and will be discussed during your initial consultation. The total price will depend on how much of the injection treatment you need; as a guideline:
