Anti Wrinkle Injections FAQs
Anti-wrinkle injections quite simply block signals from the nerve to the muscle. The muscles in your face can become more active over time and create a lot of movement. This movement then pulls and creases the skin creating wrinkles. These wrinkles and fine lines become deeper over time.
If there is a gentle block between the nerve and an overactive muscle, the muscles stop contracting so excessively. The treatment is only temporary and this block breaks down naturally over time. Having regular treatments can result in a smooth long-lasting look with fewer wrinkles forming.
We offer anti-wrinkle treatments that last at least 4-6 months. Our decades of experience means we can assess your skin properly and also the strength of your muscles and then work out the correct dosage for you. This will give you a smooth long-lasting look.
Our clients only need to come back 2/3 times a year. The length of treatment can also depend on how expressive you are, if you have a fast metabolism, and if you smoke or drink.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be almost painless if carried out delicately by an experienced practitioner. We use micro-fine needles which makes it a comfortable procedure. We like to spend a bit more on our needles to ensure our patients feel little to no discomfort. We are different to a lot of clinics that use the old insulin needles, which are larger and can cause more pain and bruising.
We can also offer numbing cream for more nervous patients. When you book in simple tell us you’d like the cream and we can offer this to you on arrival.
There have been no clinical trials testing the safety around anti-wrinkle injections during pregnancy. Therefore, we have no information about this.
We always recommend patients have treatments after their pregnancy and when they have finished breastfeeding.
Your skin will be naturally glowing through your pregnancy so enjoy your healthy look and come and see us once your baby has finally moved to the bottle.
Dermal Fillers FAQs
Your treatment will last between 6-18 months, depending on the area treated and how your body breaks down the product.
Lips generally around 6 months and the break down of the filler depends on whether you smoke, exercises or talk a lot!
Filler around the jawline or in the cheeks can last 18 months or more as the filler tends to be more viscous with stronger cross-links.
In our opinion, dermal fillers offer better results than any top brand moisturising creams, last longer and financially work out to be far better.
Dermal fillers provide structure to the skin to help lift grooves and lines. The product is hydrophilic and pulls in moisture so helps keep the area hydrated.
We only use top brands that have had rigorous testing with clinical trials and proven results.
We recommend tops brands like Restylane, Juvederm and Lumineria.
At the clinic we use filler especially made for the lips as they tend to be soft but versatile.
For fillers in the cheeks and jawline we suggest a firmer more volumising filler that will go close to the bone and last for up to 18 months
When it comes to dermal fillers it’s not a case of ‘one size fits all’. You need to ensure you go to an experienced practitioner that stocks a wide selection of fillers. Your face can then be assessed and you can be offered a filler best suited to you.
Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a soft gel that is as close to human collagen as possible. It is made up of sugar molecules.
It is very safe and does not cause allergic reactions.
The cross-links within the filler give it stability and the ability to add volume and definition to the face.
Dermal fillers can be broken down easily by a product cause hyalase, so if you felt you were not happy with the results the filler can be easily cleared.
