Facial wrinkles are caused by repeated use of facial muscles. Examples include squinting and frowning. Luckily though, anti-wrinkle injections can help.
We inject Botulinum Toxin into carefully targeted areas of the face. This therefore reduces the amount of facial muscle movement.
Consequently, we soften the lines and help you to break the habits of squinting or frowning, therefore reducing wrinkles and the development of lines.
How Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Administered?
We inject our anti wrinkle treatment directly into the muscles of your face.
Our on-site qualified GP’s are responsible for administering anti-wrinkle injections. Therefore, our clients are confident in the fact they’re in the best hands.
How Long Do Anti-Wrinkle Injection Results Last?
The results will last between 3 to 6 months.
However, in some patients, who use this treatment regularly, we find that the results last longer. Although, each case is highly individual.
What Can Muscle Relaxing Injections be Used to Treat?
At our Birmingham based Edgbaston Wellness and Medispa, our experienced doctors can smooth out laughter lines, frown lines, glabellar lines, crows’ feet, bunny lines, dimpled chin and marionette lines.
Additionally, we can correct a down turned mouth, as well as offer an effective treatment to reduce underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis).
Also, we administer injections for teeth grinding and for headaches due to excessive contraction of the temporalis muscle.
We only employ highly experienced Doctors and qualified aesthetic practitioners to perform our injectable & IV treatments.
FAQ: BOTOX Injections in Birmingham, UK
The discomfort is minimal and is mostly described by patients as a “tiny scratch” as the needle goes in followed by slight pressure under the skin. Skin-numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment.
You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
Our doctors pride themselves on both extensive medical knowledge and experience as well as great sense of aesthetic, and will always aim to deliver a result that is as natural and aesthetically pleasing as the patient desires.
They are the treatment of choice for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes which they wish to reduce.
The treatment will involve a doctor making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes. Our choice of Botulinum toxin of choice is Botox®.
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for over four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.
After 4-10 days you will notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles, and this result will last approximately 3-4 months, although this is highly individual and will vary from patient to patient.
Anti – wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places:
· Between the eyes
· Sides of the eyes
Not at all, there are various options. Dermal fillers, laser treatment, micro-needling and/or facial peels may offer possible alternatives for you, depending on the results you wish to achieve. Before you undergo any injectable treatment, you will be invited for a complimentary consultation session with one of our experienced medical professionals who will help you determine which treatment is suitable for you.
Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
You should not have this treatment if:
· The injection site is infected
· You are allergic to any of the ingredients
· You are pregnant or breastfeeding
· You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis).
A full list of possible side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation. Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Do not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
It is important to note that anti-wrinkle injections do not immediately improve static lines, or lines that are present at rest. These can be treated by adding volume with dermal fillers or through skin resurfacing.
The duration of effectiveness is dependent on the dose administered and can last up to 4 months, but generally on the first few sessions, the longevity is usually shorter – around 3 months. Studies have shown that anti-wrinkle injections are more effective and last longer when given at regular intervals of 3-4 months due to progressive weakening of the muscles treated. If at any time, you decide to cease treatment, your muscles will return to normal. Wrinkling returns to its previous state, and does not become worse.
