Anti-Wrinkle Injections (often referred to as Botox injections) help to smooth and relax the fine lines and wrinkles caused by expression/facial movement.
Common areas to be treated include frown lines, forehead lines and laughter lines.
Anti-Wrinkle treatment in Ashby de la Zouch is only available following a consultation with our Nurse Prescriber who will assess your suitability for treatment and discuss your expectations in full.
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Botulinum Toxin Type A is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. “Botox” is the most well known brand on the market, although there are other brands available. It works by temporarily weakening the muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles, resulting in a dramatically smoother, younger-looking appearance. The effects are outstanding which is why this is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world.
How does it work?
Using a tiny needle, small quantities of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) are injected into the muscles under the skin where wrinkles are most troublesome. The protein temporarily blocks the nerve signal to the muscle, which in turn relaxes the muscles. The nerve that is in place at the time of treatment shrivels away due to lack of stimulation, and a new nerve will grow in its place, and this is when the movement returns.
How soon will I see the effects and how long do the effects last?
The initial effects of the treatment start to be felt usually within 48 and 72 hours, but it can take up to 14 days to see the full effect. We generally require you to attend a follow up appointment at 2-3 weeks if you would like your treatment reviewed.
The effects of the treatment usually last between 3 and 5 months, this will vary from person to person. Deep lines will be softened and may take several treatments until the optimum result is seen. Fine lines can almost disappear.
You should have further treatment when the muscle activity returns but before the lines and wrinkles have had a chance to re-establish.
