WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE
OVER TIME, OUR SKIN LOSES ITS’ NATURAL ABILITY TO BOUNCE BACK LIKE IT USED TO.
The once organic production of collagen and elastin lessens, and eventually, deep dynamic lines leave a lasting impression on our skin. Anti-wrinkle treatments work to protect your skin from visible creases caused by repeated motion and muscle contractions.
Anti-wrinkle treatments can be categorised as a non-surgical procedure. Armed with an innovative formula, our specialists carefully intercept the signals of age beneath the surface of the skin, alleviating any unnecessary stress.
Our doctors are highly trained in the art and science of cosmetic beauty and work with your genetic make-up to carefully tailor a treatment plan that is unique to you.
AM I SUITABLE FOR ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENTS?
During your consultation, we will identify your skin goals. This will enable us to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. Anti-wrinkle treatments may be suggested if you wish to improve the appearance of the following:
- Fine lines & wrinkles on movement
A bespoke treatment plan will be devised according to your desired treatment outcomes. It may be that this is not the right time for you to undergo anti-wrinkle treatment and alternative treatments will be suggested (including no treatment).
WHAT PRE-TREATMENT PREP IS REQUIRED?
At your initial consultation we will advise on a skincare regime in keeping with your current skin goals. As there is minimal discomfort, topical local anaesthetic cream is not usually required prior to treatment.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?
Following initial assessment to check suitability for the treatment, your face will be strategically mapped. A small number of tiny injections of a purified protein are carefully placed in the chosen treatment area(s). The aim is to relax targeted facial and/or neck muscles, which will temporarily soften expressive lines & wrinkles. The procedure is simple and quick with minimal discomfort.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
There is minimal downtime following anti-wrinkle treatment. Immediately afterwards, the treated area may appear a little red with slight swelling. This may last for up to 30 minutes. Bruising, although uncommon, may be noticeable following treatment. We will go through post-treatment advice with you during your consultation.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Within two weeks, you should notice a reduction in your wrinkles, leaving you with a smooth appearance. If you who have been having regular anti-wrinkle treatments, the onset can be noticed much sooner. These treatments are temporary, with effects lasting approximately three to four months. With time, if you have been having regular anti-wrinkle treatments, you may find that the duration between sessions lengthens.

During this review, the doctor will assess your results; If deemed necessary, further anti-wrinkle treatment can be administered.
