My Sculptra® Experience at Look Lovely London

Sculptra® is growing in popularity here at the clinic. How are our clients finding the experience? One of our long-standing clients gave us her account of her experience

“I’ve been going to LLL for over 10 years now so when I heard about a collagen-stimulating treatment that would revitalise my skin, volumise hollow areas and improve my skin texture I had to try it out.

Typically I love Botox and Profhilo but in my early 60’s I’ve noticed my skin has become more crepey and loose, there’s more sagging, slight jowls and overall, I can see that my face dropping south! My jawline has also lost contour so I was pleased to hear that Sculptra® could be added to this area to improve skin thickness and help give more definition to my jawline.

I wanted to go for an option that would give me gradual results where my family and my daughters wouldn’t immediately guess. I didn’t want to be blown up with fillers and be transformed overnight. I just wanted friends to comment that I was looking fresher and to feel more confident about my slightly ageing skin. Sculptra® has been safely used in the UK since 2004 and Davina told me the product she was injecting was an improved formula that has recently been brought back to the UK. For all these reasons I decided that it sounded like a good option for me.

The treatment

I was told I would need 2 treatments 4 weeks apart and only around the 2/3 month mark would I notice a change and a lift to my skin. If I loved the results, I could even go for a 3rd treatment, but I was initially told to try the two sessions and to see how my skin responded.

I popped on her couch after the team applied some numbing cream on my face. The procedure was comfortable and involved around 4 injections on either side of my face. The clear liquid product which is like water was gently spread underneath my skin using a bendy blunt tube called a cannula, which I was told keeps the procedure safe.

It took about 20 minutes to place the product under the skin in the sagging areas.  My face was numb from the cream and the product also has a local anaesthetic in it, which meant I was so comfortable I found myself chatting away. I barely felt a thing!

Davina then gave my face a lovely massage to disperse the product further.

I was told to carry out this massage myself for the next 5 days, 5 times a day for 5 minutes.  I thought I would forget to do it but actually, I enjoyed giving myself that gentle massage over the week as I felt it was revitalising my skin even more. There’s no downtime with the treatment and all I had after the first session was a small bruise on my jawline that cleared within 4 days.

When I left the treatment room my face was glowing and already felt plumped up with my skin feeling smoother and slightly tighter. Davina told me over the next few days the volume may reduce a little as the liquid spread into the tissue further, but to give it time as then the product starts to stimulate my skin’s own production of collagen. I was told to be patient as the magic starts to happen after my second treatment 4 weeks later.

My second treatment was as easy as the first and I noticed a difference around 10 days later with my skin feeling smoother, healthier and volume appearing in my hollowed-out areas in the mid-cheek.

I am now patiently waiting for the 2 months to go by so I can see the fuller effects. It was a great experience at Look Lovely London and I’m telling all my friends in their 50-60’s to try it out. If you’re looking for a way to gradually lift your skin and give it more glow, I highly recommend you try this.  So far, the results have been worth the wait and I’m going to continue to see improvements!

Interested in this amazing treatment?  Here are all the details.

Profhilo – Does it actually work?

I have to admit that as someone who loves the general maintenance of Botox (and maybe a touch of filler here and there) I wasn’t sold on the idea of Profhilo. I love the instant results a treatment can provide, so the thought of waiting some 6 weeks for the final results to take effect… Well, I’d rather just get some filler!

Sadly, filler doesn’t fix everything.

It wasn’t until I had a conversation with our Aesthetic Practitioner Melissa, that I became aware that the lower part of my face was starting to get ‘crepey’ – that so-called nice word practitioners use to describe skin that lacks firmness, and is wrinkled in texture. Literally like crepe paper… I mean honestly, it’s a tough pill to swallow!

I use high end skincare at home and cover my skin in layers of makeup every day, so I wasn’t really looking at my skin too closely. I guess the general perception as you get older is to focus more on Botox and filler – and not so much on the actual rejuvenation of your skin. Enter Profhilo – A product that promises to improve skin texture – as long as you’re willing to wait. But does it actually work and does it take that long?

Let’s keep this very real. Modifying my skin texture wasn’t really on my treatment to-do list and it wasn’t until my 4th week in clinic that I noticed Profhilo had developed a bit of a cult following. Traditionally used on the face, it’s becoming increasingly popular as a treatment for the neck and even hands. A couple of patients (you know who you are!) reported back on almost ‘instant’ results and were booking in for other areas of their bodies to be treated. One patient in particular looked more refreshed less than 48 hours after her treatment! It made me curious.

Getting Advice

If you’ve had an appointment with Dr Davina, you’ll know that she isn’t one to agree to a treatment just because you want it – there needs to be a reason and a good one at that. In fact, the whole culture at Look Lovely London is built on this principle. So when Davina herself said she was willing to take me on my journey into rejuvenation, I knew it was something I wanted to try (I suspect my ‘crepey’ situation might’ve been the topic of discussion on the group chat! 😆)

I won’t bore you with the technicalities of how this particular magic is performed. I just want to share the results.

  • Is my skin firmer? Yes
  • Is it a better texture than before? Yes
  • Does my skin glow? Yes
  • Have I knocked 5 years off the age of my skin? Without a doubt
  • Do I still want my routine Botox and filler? Of course! 😊

More importantly my skin feels…plumper! I’ve been tutted at for using this word in clinic, but there’s no better word to describe it! It’s 100% more plump and cushiony. Not exactly a technical description but that’s the reality. My make up goes on better and I feel like I have a more youthful appearance. Want to see the process? Check it out here

The bottom line?

For me, this treatment works – and I’m saying this through gritted teeth. I really didn’t want to buy into the clinic hype – but it’s it not hype, it’s the real deal. Would I have it again? Without a shadow of a doubt.

how-sculptra-works

It’s a low maintenance treatment – where we recommended 2 treatments 4 weeks apart. Each treatment takes 30 minutes, with no downtime other than the risk of a small bruise. You’ll notice results within 4-6 weeks and your skin will feel younger and fresher. Once you’ve had your sessions, you’re good to go for 2 years – no need to worry about maintenance treatments or top-up visits!

Who is Sculptra best for?
This treatment is perfect for those with fine or deeper lines on the face or who may have lost facial fat over the years with crepey skin or hollowness. The results can take a few months to gradually take effect, so the treatment is best if you want natural, subtle enhancement and are happy to wait- but trust us, the results are well worth the wait!

Sculptra works in conjunction with your other treatments like botulinum toxin, microneedling and Profhilo and in fact, because it improves skin quality it will actually enhance the results of these other treatments.

Booking your treatment
We are taking bookings for Sculptra from 28th June and have a waiting list. If you’d like more information about this treatment, or to make an advance booking please get in touch.

Find Out How You Can Get A Younger Looking Face With This One Secret Trick

We all want to stay looking young and healthy but even with the best intentions, regular exercise and a balanced diet, it can be difficult to stop the signs of aging altogether, particularly on the face. Lines around the eyes, or crow’s feet as they are also known, can age a person’s appearance especially when they smile, and frown lines aren’t much better for the self-confidence.

Anti-wrinkle treatment, or Botox® as it’s also known, has become exceptionally popular over the years. Men and women of all ages have undergone this procedure in order to stay looking young, fresh and wrinkle free.

We’ve put together this short guide to explain what’s involved in anti-wrinkle injections, before and after customer experiences and how the injections work to iron out your skin, giving you a smoother and younger appearance.

What’s involved in anti-aging injections?

If you’re new to Botox® it can be a bit daunting if you’re not sure what’s involved in the procedure. Botox® works to reduce overall movement in your muscles, giving your skin the opportunity to relax over time, and reversing the signs of aging as a result.

Botox® is extremely commonplace these days with many celebrities having regular anti-wrinkle injections, something not all of them might confess to! Since the procedure itself is so quick and easy, our customers can come and see us in their lunch break without anyone even knowing that they have undergone treatment.

Botox® involves a series of a few small injections to the affected area, whether it be around the eyes, the forehead or other areas on the face. Once the injections have been administered, the Botox® formula gets straight to work and results are seen within just a couple of weeks.

How much do they cost?

When it comes to anti-aging treatment, London is home to many Botox® clinics, each offering the service at varying costs. Here at Look Lovely London, we operate a fair and transparent pricing policy for all our customers. For one area of Botox® we charge £140, for two areas it’s £210 and for three areas it’s £270.

Are there any side effects associated with anti wrinkle treaments?

Some customers who are particularly sensitive to pain experience minor discomfort when the needles are inserted into the skin but this is very minimal and the procedure itself is very quick so any discomfort will be short lived. Bruising is pretty rare but if you do experience any minor bruising, this can be easily covered with concealer and will disappear within about three days.

What do our customers think about these treatments?

Without exception, our customers are thrilled with the results and enjoy having fresher, younger and smoother skin, and without the need for expensive face creams. Many of them also opt to return for further treatment, usually about four months after their last treatment, which is when movement tends to return to the muscles.

Which areas can be treated with anti wrinkle injections?

Most customers choose to undergo Botox® on the face since that is where signs of aging appear the most. However, Botox® treatment is also used to treat excessive sweating in the underarms, known as Hyperhidrosis, and on the necklines to lift aging skin and improve its appearance.

If you’re new to Botox® and you’re feeling nervous about undergoing anti-wrinkle injections, our team is on hand to put your mind at rest. You’ll be offered a free consultation before your treatment which will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about Botox® treatment and our team will be able to explain the process in more detail with you.

They can also discuss a treatment plan with you, giving you advice on which areas to treat and explaining when you may need to return for further treatment if you wish. If you have any questions about anti-aging treatment now or in the future, our friendly and helpful team is available on 020 3199 8245.

Learn How You Can Turn Back The Ageing Clock And Get Smooth Skin In Less Than An Hour

How to turn back the ageing clock in a matter of minutes

In this day and age, it’s impossible to avoid seeing seemingly perfect celebrities on the TV, in films and in the tabloids, sporting clear skin, shiny hair, size-zero bodies and, most commonly, line-free faces thanks to much-loved Botox® anti-ageing treatment.

There once was a time when Botox® was so uncommon that if celebrities had undergone the procedure, nobody knew about it. Many of us just didn’t know it existed. Nowadays, the procedure has been entirely embraced by men and women of all ages and is fully accepted as being one of the most effective ways to turn back the ageing clock.

But what exactly is Botox®? How does it work? We’ve put together this short guide which should answer any initial questions you’ve always wanted to ask about this hugely popular treatment.

What are Botox® injections?

Your skin can lose its elasticity over time which can cause your skin to appear looser. Botox®, also known as anti-wrinkle injections, involves undergoing a few small injections to the face and body which are designed to reduce the muscle movement under your skin in order to give it time to recover. Your skin is then essentially ironed out and appears smoother and fresher, taking years off your overall appearance.

Which areas can be treated with Botox®?

Botox® injections can be applied to a number of different areas on the face such as frown lines, forehead lines and eye lines, also known as ‘crow’s feet’. When it comes to anti-wrinkle injections, crow’s feet are usually one of the most commonly requested areas amongst our patients. Crow’s feet are fine lines which appear around the eye area over time. These lines can make you look older and make your eyes look smaller, too. Undergoing anti-wrinkle injections on your crow’s feet will not prevent you from smiling naturally but will make your eyes look fresher and brighter.

Are there any side effects associated with Botox® injections?

When it comes to anti-wrinkle injections, side effects are minimal and fairly uncommon. Some patients report minor bruising to the treated area but this can be covered with concealer and usually clears within three days. You might feel minor discomfort when the needle is administered but the procedure is very quick so any discomfort will be shortlived.

How quickly will you see results?

Anti-wrinkle injections take just ten days to take full effect but by week two, you’ll notice a real change and improvement, and you can enjoy younger and fresher skin that’s full of vitality. Over several months, your muscles will break down the treatment and after three or four months, you will probably notice that gradual muscle movement has returned to the treated area. At this stage you can then opt to return for further treatment but you can discuss your overall treatment plan in your initial free no-obligation consultation with one of our trained doctors.

What is the cost of anti-wrinkle injections?

If you’re looking for anti-wrinkle injections, London is host to a variety of clinics, each with a different price tag. Here at Look Lovely London, we operate a clear, transparent and competitive pricing system and we charge per treated area for Botox® injections. For one area, we charge just £140, for two areas it’s £210 (£105 per area) and for three areas, it’s £270 (£90 per area).

In addition to Botox® for the face, we also offer Botox® injections for Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the underarms) and this costs just £450 for both armpits. We also offer two treatments for the neck area: treatment for the Platysmal Band (the vertical necklines) with prices starting at £350 and a Nefertili Lift which is designed to reestablish your jaw line and soften unsightly neck muscles, the cost for which starts at just £255.

If you’re a Botox® first timer, give us a call on 0203 199 8236 and arrange to see one of our trained members of staff. You can ask any questions about the procedure, or ask for advice on which areas you should focus on treating.

There’s never been a better excuse or a better time to invest in the new you!

Find Out How To Take Years Off The Clock In Just 10 Minutes With This One Simple Trick

Let’s face it: all of us at some point in our lives have felt insecure about the way that we look. Comparing ourselves to friends, family members and, of course, celebrities, makes us focus on our flaws and dream about all the things we would change about ourselves if we could wave a magic wand.

Of course, there are many cosmetic surgeries out there which can help to address your perceived flaws, either on the face or on the body. Whether it’s a nose job, breast implants or tummy tuck, making the decision to go under the knife is a big one and should not be taken lightly. Here at Look Lovely London, we believe that a lot can be achieved by making minor adjustments to your body and face, simply by undergoing a few non-surgical procedures designed to improve your appearance and self-esteem. No long-lasting recovery needed, no hefty price tag and no scarring. Sound good? Read on.

Why are Botox® injections so popular?

There was once a time when Botox® injections were reserved only for the rich and famous, whether or not they admitted to it! But over the course of time, Botox® has become far more commonplace and is not only used to manage and reduce the signs of ageing, it can also be used to effectively treat medical problems such as excessive saliva production or sweating around the underarm area.

However, one of the most common areas which can be treated by Botox® is the eye area. When we start to age, our skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag over time, creating wrinkles and fine lines. When we smile or laugh, lines appear around the eye area and these can add years to our actual age and have a real impact on our self-esteem.

Botox® around eyes is so popular simply because it works! By undergoing a few small injections which are designed to prevent movement in the muscles around the eye area, your skin appears more smooth and soft and can make you look younger, almost immediately.

Are there any side effects associated with Botox® injections?

When it comes to Botox®, side effects are usually minimal. Some patients experience minor bruising to the treated area but this is fairly uncommon and will usually fade pretty quickly. If you’re worried about bruising, you can rest assured that most bruising can usually be easily covered up with concealer and tends not to last more than a couple of days.

You also might notice a few small bumps where the injections have been administered but these usually disappear within about ten minutes. Part of the appeal of Botox® is that it doesn’t take much time at all to administer and you can get on with the rest of your day without anyone knowing!

How quickly will results appear?

Although many patients report that they can see results in just a few days after treatment, the wrinkle-relaxing injections actually take ten days in total to take full effect. After two weeks, you will really notice how smooth and fresh your eye area looks and these results will usually last for three to four months which is when you’ll start to notice more movement in the muscles. If you want to return for further treatment after this time then you can do so. Most patients love the effects of Botox® so much that they usually choose to return for more treatment but the decision is, of course, entirely yours.

How much does Botox® cost per area?

Depending on the areas treated, price tags for Botox® can vary from clinic to clinic. Here at Look Lovely London, we charge just £140 for one area, £210 for two areas and £270 for three areas.

If you’re new to Botox® or you’re already an avid fan of anti-wrinkle injections, our London-based clinic is here for you. Give us a call today on 0203 199 8236 and find out how a few injections around your eye area can take years off your age in just a couple of weeks!

Learn The Secret To Removing Vertical Neck Wrinkles That Celebrities Don’t Want You To Know

None of us want to look or feel older than we are. And with the rise in celebrity press coverage showcasing men and women of all ages looking young and healthy, it’s no wonder we’re all searching for the secret to youthful skin.

Smooth line-free foreheads, disappearing wrinkles and young, fresh skin can take years off a person’s visible age. But a youthful appearance is not just about a wrinkle-free face. One of the most common complaints amongst our patients is the ageing effect of the platysmal band, also known as the vertical lines on a person’s neck.

Since we receive so many enquiries about how to reduce the appearance of prominent necklines, we’ve put together this handy guide to explain a bit more about how anti-wrinkle injections can help.

What is the platysmal band?

Put simply, the vertical lines which appear on your neck when you clench your teeth or tighten your jaw, is your platysmal band. The appearance of a prominent platysmal band can often age a person and can result in self-confidence issues.

Many of our patients believe that the only way to reduce the appearance of an ageing platysmal band is to undergo invasive, expensive and painful cosmetic surgery, known as a neck lift. While this procedure can certainly make a big difference, we recommend the much less invasive and less costly procedure of Botox® treatment. If you’re suffering from self-esteem issues as a result of a prominent platysmal band, Botox® is by far one of the most effective treatments.

How does Botox® improve the appearance of a platysmal band?

If you’re interested in the difference Botox® can make to platysmal bands, before and after pictures on the internet will speak for themselves. Botox® injections work gently to reduce the harsh appearance of a platysmal band, softening the area to make it much less prominent. Results can last between three and six months so you don’t have to worry about fitting in regular injections into your busy schedule and the procedure itself takes hardly any time at all.

How much does Botox® for the platysmal band cost?

Since there are many practitioners specialising in treating platysmal bands, Botox® costs can vary from clinic to clinic. Here at Look Lovely London, our rates for treating the platysmal band start at just £350.

If you’d like to get an exact idea on cost, book yourself in for a free, no-obligation consultation where one of our trained doctors will discuss your treatment plan with you. Our policy is to always work flexibly around your budget, as opposed to over-selling products or treatments that you don’t necessarily need.

Do Botox® injections hurt?

Most patients do not experience any pain associated with Botox® injections. You may feel slight discomfort when the needle is administered but since the procedure only lasts for a few minutes, any discomfort will be short lived. If you’re particularly sensitive to pain or worried about experiencing any discomfort, just let the team at Look Lovely London know and they will talk this through with you in more detail.

Does Botox® cause any bruising?

Some patients experience minor bruising to the treated area but this can usually be covered up with concealer and fades within about three days.

Which other areas can be treated with Botox®?

Botox® tends to be used most commonly on the face. Frown lines, crow’s feet, smokers’ lines and forehead lines can be easily treated with Botox® and with long-lasting effects, too.  In addition to treating the face and neck, Botox® can also be used to minimise the effects of excessive sweating in the underarm area. With so many uses, it’s no surprise that Botox® is so popular!

How long do Botox® results last for?

Not only do results last for up to six months, there is also evidence to suggest that Botox® treatment can have a cumulative effect, meaning that you’ll need fewer treatments over time.

If you’re worried about the appearance of your platysmal band and you’d like more information, just contact our helpful and friendly team on 0203 199 8236 and they will arrange for you to meet with one of our skilled doctors.

Give yourself a much-needed boost of confidence and treat yourself to a new, younger-looking you!

Find Out How Easy it is to Get An Anti Wrinkle Treatment Done During Your Lunch

Fast Botox® on your lunch break

We’re all a little intrigued by Botox®. Celebrities of all ages grace our TV screens or magazine front covers every day with young and fresh skin and, whether they admit to it or not, it’s pretty safe to assume that Botox® is one of the reasons that they look so good.

But what exactly is Botox® treatment? How much does it cost? How does it work? Let’s take a closer look at what’s involved and how you can fit regular Botox® treatment into your working week with minimal fuss or interruption to your busy schedule.

What is Botox® and how quickly will you see the results?

As skin starts to age, it can lose its elasticity. This happens with natural ageing but there are also lifestyle choices which can affect your skin’s appearance, such as smoking, drinking excessive alcohol and subjecting your skin to too much sun. All of these factors can result in unwanted wrinkles and Botox® is designed to help.

Botox® reduces overall muscle movement which then gives your skin the opportunity to relax and repair itself. Simply having a few non-invasive injections will make a lot of difference to your overall appearance and the results can be seen within 10-14 days. Patients who undergo Botox® can then choose whether or not to return for further treatment, usually 3-4 months after the initial injections when muscle movement starts to return to the treated area.

How long does it take to undergo Botox® treatment?

Since Botox® injections are quick, you can easily fit in an appointment on your lunch break and return to the office without anyone knowing that you’ve had any treatment. Some patients experience minor bumps around the treated area but this usually subsides after about ten minutes, leaving them to carry on with the rest of their day.

Which areas of the body can be treated with Botox®?

Most patients tend to treat areas on the face, such as forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. You can also treat other areas of the body, such as the neck and armpits. The latter treatment is for patients who suffer from excessive sweating in the armpit area.

How much does Botox® cost?

Depending on how many areas you want to treat, prices will vary. If you want to treat just one area then the cost is £140.00. For two areas it is £210.00 and for three it costs £270.00. Botox® treatment for excessive sweating costs £450.00 for both armpits and prices for treating vertical neck lines start at £350.00.

Where can you undergo Botox® treatment?

If you’re looking for Botox® injection treatment, London offers a range of clinics to choose from. As with any cosmetic or surgical procedure, doing your research is absolutely key before you decide which clinic to use.  Our team at Look Lovely London is experienced and qualified in a range of treatments and offers a free consultation which is an ideal opportunity for you to ask any questions. We’ll talk you through the Botox® procedure and make sure you’re feeling completely comfortable about the treatment.

Rescue & Revive Your Appearance Instantly With Anti Wrinkle Injections

It’s all fine time telling a tale, but when it comes to our appearances, we’d rather it left our skin alone. Thankfully, holding onto a fresh and youthful-looking appearance is no longer a problem, thanks to the ease and affordability of anti-wrinkle injections.

Along with dermal fillers, wrinkle treatment is one of Look Lovely London’s specialist areas with our experienced doctors using the procedure as a way to combat the signs of ageing and leave customers with fresher and younger-looking skin.

Where can anti-wrinkle injections be administered?

We understand that every customer is different, which is why we have expanded our anti-wrinkle services to treat the following areas: –

  • Forehead lines

Forehead lines are the horizontal lines across the top of the head, most often caused by the raising of eyebrows or surprised expressions. We can gently smooth these lines with just 4-6 very small injections.

  • Frown lines

Concentration or anger can cause deep frown lines to form in between the eyebrows with the lines becoming permanent over time. We work to prevent the formation and deepening of these grooves with anti-wrinkle injections, usually on a twice-a-year basis.

  • Eye lines (crow’s feet)

Smiling shouldn’t receive a punishment, but over time, it sadly has an effect on our appearances, causing fine lines to appear around the eyes, which in turn makes the eyes look smaller. We work with anti-wrinkle injections to return the brightness to the eye area without preventing you from smiling naturally.

  • Smoker’s lines

Over time, smoking or ageing can cause ‘puckered’ lines around the lips, but we gently administer anti-wrinkle injections in very small doses around these lines to soften them.

  • Other

In addition to the popular treatments listed above, we also administer anti-wrinkle injections to treat bunny lines (the horizontal wrinkles that appear across the nose bridge), protuberant pointy chins (ageing can cause ridging towards the lower face and chin), vertical necklines and the loss of definition in the jaw area (Nefertiti lift). We can also administer anti-wrinkle treatment in the armpits to reduce excess sweating.

What should I expect during and after anti-wrinkle treatment?

Ahead of your procedure, our specialist doctor will discuss your needs and concerns in detail before deciding on the most suitable treatment and the amount of dosage required. On the day, you will have the chance to ask any other questions about the procedure. The goal is to make you feel as relaxed as possible about undergoing treatment.

The doctor will cleanse the treatment area before administering the product with a fine needle no more than 3mm into the skin. A small stinging sensation may be felt upon treatment but this will clear within seconds. Little bumps may temporarily appear, but typically go away within ten minutes. Treatment takes just fifteen minutes making it more convenient than ever.

After leaving the surgery, you should expect the treatment to take full effect within ten days. By the second week, your skin will feel noticeably smoother. After three or four months, the body naturally breaks down the product, which is when customers generally come back for further treatment. Studies and experience have proved that the effects last longer after each consecutive treatment.

Will the effects look natural?

We are strongly against the ‘fake’ look, which is why we pride ourselves on our gentle approach for a natural-looking treatment. If you’re anxious about the procedure, we offer the option of ‘Baby Botox’, a smaller dose of treatment that can be topped up two weeks later if needed. The procedure is very safe and there have been no long-term adverse effects reported. It’s no coincidence that 96% of our clients return for further treatment.

How much does anti-wrinkle treatment cost?

Look Lovely London charges just £140 to treat one area of the skin, £210 for two areas or £270 for three. Excessive sweat treatment costs £450 for both armpits, while a Nefertiti lift starts from £255 and vertical neckline treatment starts from £350. For advice on which treatment option is most suitable for you or if you have any questions about our procedures, please call 0203 199 8236 to speak to our friendly team of staff and book a no-obligation consultation for free.

Wave Goodbye to Neck Wrinkles with This One Easy Step

Vertical neck lines: how to combat this common problem

Getting older goes hand in hand with the onset of many skin elasticity issues – crow’s feet, permanent wrinkles and bags around the eyes to name a few. Another common complaint as the years roll on is the appearance of vertical neck lines, which become accentuated each time we clench our teeth and tighten our jaw and worsen every time we speak, swallow, stretch and expose our skin to the sun.

At Look Lovely London, we are committed to reducing and eliminating the appearance of these fine lines and we offer competitive and accessible packages to ensure that everyone has easy access to the best treatment for vertical neck lines.

What kind of treatment for vertical neck lines do you offer?

At Look Lovely London, we offer anti-wrinkle injections (more commonly known as Botox®) to help combat permanent lines and wrinkles, loose skin, dull complexions and any other skin complaints caused by excess sun exposure, smoking, alcohol consumption, dehydration and general ageing. Anti-wrinkle injections can be applied to various areas of the skin and one of the areas we most commonly treat is the neck. Botox® works at reducing the appearance of fine lines in the neck, resulting in smoother and firmer skin, and thus a more youthful appearance.

Why seek treatment for vertical neck lines?

Vertical neck lines not only result in an older appearance, but they make our complexions appear dull and lifeless and, if left untreated, can increase the visibility of our Platysmal bands (the two strips of muscles running up the left and right side of the neck). Anti-wrinkle injections in the neck help to prevent the need for a Nefertiti lift (a neck lift) by softening the Platysmal bands and reducing any vertical lines running down the neck.

How much does the treatment cost?

The cost to fix vertical lines in necks varies depending on the nature of treatment required but generally prices start from £350. The skin naturally begins to break down the product around three months after the treatment has been administered, so we recommend coming back for a second dose of treatment from four months onwards. Research shows that the effects of the injections are longer lasting and more effective after each consecutive treatment, so your cosmetic expenditure will decrease over time.

What happens on the day of my treatment?

By the time the day of treatment arrives, you will already have undergone a professional and personalised consultation, where one of our highly qualified doctors will have assessed your medical history and explained the treatment in full. When you arrive for treatment, you will have the chance to ask any outstanding questions and then, once you are comfortable, the doctor will cleanse your neck area and administer the needles no more than 3mm into your skin. You may feel small bumps on the skin where the product has been injected but these usually disappear within 10 minutes or so.

What can I expect after the treatment?

After around 10 days, you will notice the lines in your neck become softer and less defined with the skin feeling more supple and appearing more youthful. Over several months, the skin begins to break down the treatment, which can result in the reappearance of vertical neck lines. It is for this reason that we recommend coming back approximately every four months during the first year of treatment.

Are there any risks with the treatment?

Anti-wrinkle injections have been proven a safe and effective procedure and we make it our mission to carry out only the finest and most personalised treatments on all of our customers. For those concerned, we offer the option of ‘Baby Botox®’, which is a smaller dose of treatment, followed by a two-week review and a further small dose if required.
When the injections are administered, customers may experience some mild discomfort for up to five minutes with the majority of customers finding no bruising afterwards. For those that do, the bruising generally clears within a few days and can be covered with makeup. As the treatment is naturally broken down by the skin, the appearance of the neck will gradually return to normal, at which point you can decide whether you would like to return for further treatment.

If you are concerned about the procedure, would like to learn more about it or are looking to schedule a consultation, please contact our friendly team on 0203 199 8236 and we can kick-start the process of making your dream of having a fresher and more youthful appearance a reality.
