Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

How it Works?

When injected into the muscle,it blocks a chemical message from the nerve ending to the muscle. This causes temporary paralysis of the treated muscle, which stops movement and hence reduces or stops wrinkles forming. Approximately 3-4 months later the nerve ending re-establishes itself which allows the signal to get through and the muscle moves again, causing wrinkles to re appear.

How is it administered?

A small number of injections using very fine needles.

Does it hurt?

Discomfort is minimal and no local anaesthetic is needed.

How long does it take to work?

Approximately 3-5 days to notice wrinkle reduction, but full results appear in 2-4 weeks.

How long do the results last?

Studies show that results last around 3-4 months.

How long will the procedure take?

Consultation is approximately 20-30 mins and the injections itself between 5-10 mins. The whole session is usually completed between 30-45 mins from start to finish.
