Anti Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injection is a temporary non-surgical anti-ageing treatment that softens the appearance of wrinkles on the face. Also known as botulinum toxin injections, Botox® or anti-ageing injections, it is mostly used around the face to eliminate visible forehead lines, frown lines on the glabella, or around the corners of the eyes.

Anti-wrinkle injections are a painless anti-ageing treatment aimed at reducing face wrinkles, which can be a sign of aging. Our doctors use a face chart to mark the areas that need attention, as well as the amount of botulinum toxin injection needed. The effect of the anti-wrinkle injections last around 3 months, depending on the patient’s lifestyle. Sun exposure may dissolve the botulinum toxin faster. Returning patients usually have their anti-wrinkle injections top-up twice a year.

Each anti-wrinkle treatment is bespoke to the patient’s needs and desires. Multiple anti-wrinkle injection treatments are required for visible results.

The anti-wrinkle injections work by numbing the facial muscles and minimizing the muscle movement, to soften the formation of lines and deep wrinkles. Our doctors focus on using anti-wrinkle injections for the purpose of minimizing the appearance of lines and improving the natural look of the patient.

Anti-winkle injections are different from facial fillers and work as a muscle relaxant, rather than filling up the treated area. Anti-wrinkle injections are not administered to pregnant or breastfeeding women. They are also not recommended to people who suffer from neuromuscular disorders.

THE NATURAL LOOK

We endeavour to offer our patients a natural non-surgical anti-ageing look, as opposed to a ‘frozen look’. A sufficient amount of botulinum toxin is administered with each session in order to prevent overdoing and freezing the patient’s facial expression.

This approach is very popular among our anti-wrinkle treatment patients, as too much botulinum toxin does not always give the best results. Building up the natural look gradually is the desired outcome in order to avoid leaving the patients without facial expressions.

During your consultation, our doctors will explain the risks and benefits of anti-wrinkle injections and what treatment plan is required for each patient’s needs.

THE ‘LIP FLIP’

The ‘lip-flip’ is a non-surgical lip injection treatment that creates a fuller lips effect. Our ‘lip-flip’ technique gives a natural result to patients who are seeking to improve the appearance around their mouth and lips.

The lip injections are done in key points of the mouth to relax the muscles, which then makes the upper lip flip. This will create the illusion of fuller lips and make the lips more prominent. To note that no filler is injected during this procedure, so it can be a desired treatment for patients who want to avoid lip fillers.

The lip-flip effect can last up to 3 months.

ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS FOR MEN

Anti-wrinkle injections are a common anti-ageing treatment for men. Our doctors use a face chart to mark the areas that need attention, as well as the amount of botulinum toxin injection needed, focusing mostly on the glabella frown lines and forehead lines.

Whilst it is not uncommon for men to use anti-wrinkle injections to improve their facial appearance, it is important to understand that certain features of the face must be kept as they are in order to avoid the ‘feminization’ of the male face. Our doctors will explain the risks and benefits of anti-wrinkle injections for men and what treatment plan is required for each patient’s needs.

AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating in various areas of the body when the body does not need to cool down. Therefore, the body will cause excessive sweating even when the patient is not physically active.

Botox® injections for excessive sweating are a recognised form of treatment by the NHS and work by preventing the sweat glands from producing sweat. Botulinum toxin injections have been found to be around 80% effective in reducing excessive sweating in the axillary area.  However, this excessive sweat treatment is temporary and the results can last up to half a year.

Whilst this is not a cure for excessive sweating, Botox® injections can help improve the patient’s lifestyle and overall activity.
