Anti Wrinkle Treatments


Anti Wrinkle Treatments

Botulinum toxin (often referred to as Botox) is a very popular anti wrinkle treatment. Anti ageing Injections can erase lines and wrinkles, improve facial contour and improve eye shape in a matter of days.  DysportAzzalure and Bocouture are different brands of botulinum toxin.

Am I a suitable candidate?

You can have Anti-Wrinkle Injections except if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have  rare neurological disorders like Eaton-Lambert Syndrome or Myasthenia Gravis or you are allergic to albumin (egg products).

How long does the Anti Ageing treatment injections take?

The treatment itself  usually takes 15-20 minutes.

How long do the effects last?

The effects of the Anti Ageing treatment usually last about 4-6 months. When you return for regular follow-up treatments, the muscles become accustomed to the treatment and the effects may last much longer.

How soon will I see the result?

The results of the Anti Wrinkle Treatments become visible between 2-7 days after the treatment.

What areas can be treated?

In the hands of our cosmetic doctors, botulinum toxin can be used to relax frown lines, give the eyebrows a lift, soften the appearance of ‘crows feet’, and reduce excessive underarm sweating.

Is it safe?

Botulinum toxin (Botox) has been used for many years to treat muscular spasticity. The doses required to treat spasticity are far higher than the tiny amounts used for cosmetic treatment. At this point in time, millions of botulinum toxin doses have been administered safely.
The most important thing to remember is that this treatment is non-permanent but also very safe.
If you decide to stop having the treatment, your appearance will revert to its original state.

Is there any downtime after each treatment?

Do I need to take special precautions before or after treatment?

We would recommend that you drink water prior to your anti ageing injections and to avoid aspirin, alcohol and vitamin E 3 days prior to treatment, (this is to minimise the risk of any bruising). We encourage you to exercise the treated muscles after treatment by using normal facial movements during the first few hours after treatment eg frown to exercise the muscles. Don’t touch or rub the treated areas for a minimum of 4 hours after treatment. Don’t lie down for four hours after treatment so as to reduce the possibility that you may accidentally move injectables to an area where you do not want them. Occasionally some people may experience a headache after injectables that can last a few hours.

“Will I look natural?”

The overwhelming feedback from our patients is that they are thrilled with their new natural and younger look, most tell us that nobody realise that they had any kind of cosmetic treatment.

The usual comments are that they look very healthy and fresh. Our doctors take a measured and personalised approach to each person to ensure you get your desired ‘naturally youthful’ look.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are not very common with botulinum toxin treatments, even if they do occur these are not long-term side effects. For about one hour after the treatment you may have small red bumps at the site of the injections, but these typically fade within 1 hour. Headaches, slight bruising, tightness are rare side-effects but all of these usually resolve within a matter of days.
