Injectable anti-ageing treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out lines in the forehead, frown, mouth and eye area, without any need for surgery. There are other regions that can also be treated, which can be discussed at your pre procedure consultation.
When Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®) is injected, it blocks signals from the nerve endings to the muscle, therefore reducing or stopping contraction. This temporary relaxation method means that the skin no longer creases, making wrinkles fade or disappear altogether.
Once Botox® is injected, it remains in the body for around 48 hours and during this time, trims the receptors of any muscles that have been injected. These receptors (which receive messages from the brain telling the muscle to move gradually) grow back over a period of several months and when relaxed, the skin has chance to heal and lines soften.
Performed by our medical experts, impacts are subtle and a natural improvement made. However results aren’t immediate and it usually takes 2 to 5 days until you start to notice the effect - which is at its best post 2 weeks. Movement usually starts to reappear after approximately 8 weeks and you can opt for a repeat treatment from week 12. A thorough pre procedure consultation will be carried out to ascertain your goals and the look you want to achieve.
We offer several injectable products which include Juvéderm® and Botox® and can help you to decide which one is right for you by assessing your skin type and concerns.
