Anti-wrinkle injections (also known as botox) is a simple, safe and effective way to improve fine lines and deep wrinkles in the upper part of the face. They work to relax facial muscles making lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.
This procedure can have remarkable results in improving the wrinkles resulting from hyperactive facial muscles that occur when our skin loses its elasticity with age. It is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. Horizontal forehead lines and ‘crows feet’ around the eyes.
Muscle relaxing injections using botox, which can be completely tailored to your face, offer you an effective and far less invasive treatment choice to smooth away lines and wrinkles. The result is a softer, more relaxed and healthier appearance. The effect usually lasts around three to four months and can be repeated when needed. Most patients require less frequent treatments over time as the muscles ‘retrain’ and weaken from disuse.
Results can be seen as early as 5-7 days up to 12 days.
Before any anti-wrinkle procedure, you must have a consultation with our doctor prescriber to assess your suitability for treatment. You will only be able to book an anti-wrinkle appointment if you have booked your prescriber appointment.
The prescriber consultation fee is £30 and is non-refundable.
