Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections involve a number of small injections using Botulinum Toxin known as Anti-wrinkle injections. This prescription only medication is a natural protein that is produced by bacteria.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors; it isn’t only due to the ageing process & collagen depletion. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract causing your skin to furrow and fold. Wrinkle injections works beneath the skins surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes lines to form over time.
Wrinkle injections are injected with a micro-needle into the muscles that cause lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a smoother, softer appearance of the lines and wrinkles, and a youthful looking skin. Leaving you feeling and looking fresher.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
It takes 5-7 days to start seeing the results after wrinkle injections, and up to 2 weeks for the full effects of the treatment.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
After you’ve had the treatment your skin can look slightly red and have raised bumps at the injection sites, this typically only lasts 30 minutes or so and will calm down completely. No make up can be applied although we stock a sterile cover up if necessary.
DOES IT HURT?
Wrinkle injections are administered using a micro fine needle similar to that used with insulin dependant diabetics. Although there are multiple injection sites it’s a relatively pain free treatment. It’s similar to plucking your eyebrows or popping a spot. Any discomfort lasts for mere seconds.
HOW DOES BOTOX FEEL?
As the product starts to work on the muscles it can feel tight, almost like a face mask drying on your skin. Some people will experience a headache which will be temporary and others feel a slight heaviness for a few days. Occasionally there can be slight bruising for a few days post treatment, arnica cream or tablets are recommended if this occurs.
I DON’T WANT A ‘FROZEN’ LOOK
Each patient will have a thorough consultation prior to their treatment where desired results will be discussed. The correct dose will be administered to treat your specific requirements it isn’t a one dose suits all treatment. A lot of patients ask for a natural looking improvement so the treatment will be tailored to you.
WHO CARRIES OUT THE CONSULTATION AND TREATMENT?

A list of side effects are outlined in your consent form, although rare you must be made aware of them. All of our treatments are performed inline with strict medical protocols and to a high clinical standard.

CAN YOU REVERSE THE TREATMENT?
It cannot be reversed or removed, however, most unwanted side affects such a heavy brow or “Spock”(high) brow can usually be treated and rectified. If the results are not to your liking the effect does start to wear off after 12 weeks and your appearance will return to how it was prior to treatment once it has worn off completely. This is why its important to be treated by a expert practitioner Miss Amber is an advanced expert cosmetic injector
