Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti wrinkle injections are used to help reduce the muscle activity that cause a wrinkle when it moves. A typical example is the frown, forehead and around the eyes. Although dermal filler can be used to lift the wrinkles in these areas, it is the muscle activity that causes the wrinkle in the first instance. Imagine, you’re walking around in the sunshine squinting from the sun… As you walk indoors your frown relaxes but leaves lines behind etched on your skin. You may look angry all the time or simply look older before your years. Whatever the reason, ‘Anti wrinkle injections (BTX) will stop the muscle movement that’s causing the problem. Leaving you looking refreshed, and the skin will no longer crease due to the lack of movement.
Typical areas for these include the frown line, forehead and the outer around the eyes in the upper face. Other areas of concern can also be the lower face, such as the chin, lines above and below the lips, the jowl, the neck, the masseter (for slimming wide jaw lines, especially for those who clench their jaws), depressor anguli oris (for reducing the jowls caused by making a sad face), nasalis (to prevent wrinkles appearing on the ridge of the nose as you scrunch your nose) and underarm for reducing excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) under the armpits.
Each area is covered in more depth further down the page, including frequently asked questions.
We take pride in our work,
here's some recent client results
for Anti Wrinkle Injections
Before and 2 weeks after anti wrinkle treatments. Showing the reduced movement to the frown muscles.
Before and 2 weeks after anti wrinkle treatments. Showing the reduced movement to the forehead muscles that pull up the brows. As you can see the brow isn't rising as much as it was before, and the wanted side effect of which is the reduced number of lines seen on the skin. At this point in time, the client will have an additional dose at the review appointment to further stop the remaining movement.
Before and 2 weeks after anti wrinkle treatments. Showing the reduced movement to the circular muscles around the eyes. Not the pinching in the out corner, just under the eye before treatment and the reduction in movement after the treatment.
Results can't be seen on the day of the treatment as it takes 3 to 14 days for the effects to appear. As a result, we book a review appointment in for you 2 to 3 weeks after your initial appointment to check the status of the movement and give an additional dose where it's needed.
Doses vary from person to person, with variations in dose to the forehead ranging from 20 to 180units (su) per person. Therefore attending your review appointment is as critical as attending your first appointment. Reviews that aren't attended within a 2-3 week window, will have to wait until their following appointment in at a minimum of 12 weeks time.
