Wrinkle Treatments

Wrinkle injections are a highly effective non-surgical choice for the treatment and elimination of selected wrinkles. You can use them to relax your muscles so that wrinkles disappear or stop from developing. The typical spot in which wrinkle treatments are used are in the brow, in between your eye brows for “frown lines”, as well as around the eyes with respect to “crows feet”. Anti-wrinkle injections can be applied to help manage hyperactive perspiration glands, hyperhydrosis, headaches and even blepharospasm or twitching of the eyes.

Wrinkle treatments are a highly purified preparation of a nerve paralysing toxin produced by the Botulin bacterium. It’s application to remedy facial lines has developed from the initial use in eyelid issues. Treatment is conducted using a fine needle. A tiny amount is injected into the desired spot. The sensation is likened to an insect bite and no local anaesthetic is needed. A few injections are required for each treatment and they work by means of relaxing the muscle tissue which are causing frown lines and wrinkles. Our experienced cosmetic surgeon, Mr Richard Rahdon, will be able to identify the muscles which are creating the wrinkles, and these can be selectively relaxed so that your regular function is not impacted.

Following treatment the overlying skin stays smoother and also less wrinkled while your untreated facial muscles contract normally. Wrinkle treatment does not produce numbness or disturbance of sensation, however, minor short-lived bruising and swelling may be experienced at the injection site. The procedure does not take very long and recovery is just a matter of minutes. You may return to regular activities right away.

The actual effect normally lasts for 3 to 4 months, and after that the injections can then be repeated over again. The final results are generally apparent approximately 2 to 3 days after the injections, with the maximum result being realised after 7 days.

Other treatments can be used concurrently, for example dermal fillers so that you can optimise the outcome you are after.
