ANTI – WRINKLE INJECTIONS with Botulinum Toxin is an amazing product that helps to restore and refresh your natural beauty. It works by targeting your muscles of expression, relaxing them, and diminishing the appearance of unwanted lines and furrows, produced by age, stress, and worry. They quickly fade or disappear resulting in a more rested and refreshed appearance.
Facial expressions are how we communicate with the world, how we reflect our feelings and emotions. As we age, visible lines and wrinkles naturally form. Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily block signals to the facial muscles to correct wrinkles, smooth appearance and even prevent the formation of new wrinkles. Injections are not intended to eliminate facial expression; rather they prevent facial grimaces and frowns that have become unintended habits. The Aesthetic Practitioner understands the dynamics of facial expression can administer injections to create a perfectly natural look.

Prior to treatment you will need to go through a health questionnaire with our medical practitioner, who will check your medical history and inform you of both the benefits and risks of the treatment.
The procedure is quick and causes only minor, temporary discomfort. A small, thin needle is used to inject Botulinum Toxin into the small facial muscles. The most common side effects are swelling and bruising at the injection site, which will usually resolve within 48 hours. You can resume normal activities immediately and will be advised to avoid lying down for four hours after the procedure. And you must not rub the area for 24 hours to avoid unwanted side effects. You will receive instructions for post-injection care. It may take 5-14 days for results to appear and up to two weeks for the full results to be visible. You’ll be strutting with a renewed confidence in no time.
Botulinum Toxin has long-lasting positive effects for 3-4 months and wears off slowly. Keeping up with injections on a regular basis, before lines and wrinkles reappear, trains the treated muscles to contract less often so that lines appear smoother.
*Can treat up to 3 zones like: glabella complex (frown lines), crow’s feet and forehead.
Supplement for men £30 (in men muscle mass is much larger than in women and requires a greater dose of Botulinum Toxin).
Consultation for any treatment is £20
(This comes off your first appointment)
In order to minimize the risk of possible side effects and complications of injections please follow these simple steps:
Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible, for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections
Schedule your Dermal Filler and Botulinum Toxin appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the Dermal Filler and Botulinum Toxin injections will take approximately 4 to 7 days to appear
Also bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period
Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment
Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area
Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of light headedness during your treatment.
You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS
