Our team is highly experienced in dealing with those new to Anti-Wrinkle Injections (commonly known as Botox ®) or Dermal Fillers.

It is natural to be scared about treatments when you are a first-timer. You worry the treatment may look fake or you’ll be left with a permanent look you hate. These are understandable concerns, however, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions around these types of treatment. At Look Lovely London, we want to calm your anxieties and worries and we are here to guide you through the daunting but exciting world of facial rejuvenation.

Common Questions

Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Fillers work in the same way?

No.

Anti-wrinkle injections relax wrinkles. They smooth the skin by treating overactive muscles underneath. Once these muscles stop contracting, with the gentle treatment the wrinkles above are no longer formed on the face

Fillers smooth out wrinkles and deeper grooves by replacing the collagen lost over time. If you have a permanent line on your face, even when you are not contracting the muscle underneath, then a filler can be used to smooth this out.

Dermal fillers and Anti-wrinkle injections can often be used together in a target area to provide dramatic results. For example, in the cross-frown look (lines in-between the eye brows).

Will Everyone Be Able To Tell I Have Had a Filler or Anti-Wrinkle Injection?

No.

Look Lovely focuses on providing natural looking results by using the smallest doses possible to get the desired end result. The clinic simply builds on the beauty you already have.

Fillers are very natural; most people won’t ever guess you’ve had them. They will simply assume you have had a facial or a great night’s sleep!

Anti Wrinkle Injections work over 2 weeks as a gradual process, most people will assume you have been away on holiday and simply look more rested and refreshed.

Do Injections Require a Good Amount of Downtime?

No.

You can go straight back to work or home to your family after treatment.

Anti-wrinkle injections create slightly raised red bumps for a maximum of 10-30 minutes. In rare circumstances, a bruise can occur which takes 3-5 days to clear but can easily be covered with concealer.

Filler injections cause mild redness around the skin for about 10 minutes before settling. Again in rare circumstances bruising can occur and if it does the area can be covered with concealer easily.
