How does it work?

Anti-wrinkle injections work by the delivery of a substance known as botulinum toxin. This substance when injected directly into the muscle, causes the muscle to freeze thereby reducing muscle contractions and preventing the development of further wrinkles. It also helps smoothen out existing wrinkles. 


What happens at an anti-wrinkle appointment?

Following a full assessment and determining that you are suitable for treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the area to be injected which is then thoroughly cleaned. Small injections are administered into the muscle being treated using very fine needles. The pain is minimal and the whole procedure takes a few minutes. No down time is needed, and can resume your day as normal following your appointment. 

How is filler administered? 

Following a full assessment and determining that you are suitable for treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the area to be injected which is then thoroughly cleaned. Following this, filler is injected  into the area being treated using very fine needles or cannulas to ensure maximum comfort. Cannulas are blunt tubes which are used instead of needles which helps reduce bruising. 

Filler can be placed in most parts of the lower face such as the lips. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic to ensure that the procedure is almost pain free! After filler placement, the skin will appear more plump, hydrated and refreshed leading to a more youthful appearance.
