Wrinkle Reducing Treatment Features
The years leave a lifetime of living etched onto our faces. A few laughter lines may help remind us of happy times but as we age there is a slowing in the skin’s ability to renew/repair itself meaning that when the skin is creased in areas of maximum use, these lines eventually become permanent and without treatment can leave us looking tired and aged. By gently relaxing the overworked muscle, botox anti-wrinkle injections allow the skin to recover and look refreshed. The wrinkle relaxing injections with botox are very specific reducing only the movement of certain muscles this allows natural looking results. Treatments with botox are temporary lasting between three to five months; repeat treatment would then be required to maintain and further improve the results.

Anti-wrinkle Injections use a purified protein called Botulinum Toxin Type A to reduce facial expression lines. The Toxin is a prescription only medication and by law it may only be prescribed by a qualified Doctor or Nurse Independent Prescriber.
The Toxin works by blocking impulses to the tiny facial muscles so that they do not contract which in turn causes a long-term reduction in the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles. The injected Toxin relaxes specific facial muscles that cause unwanted lines.
As every client’s skin and required goals are unique, a detailed consultation is essential prior to undergoing any advanced non-surgical treatment. During the consultation we will discuss any problem areas, desired improvements, options available (including no treatment at all) and expected outcomes. Should Anti-Wrinkle Injections be agreed upon as the most suitable treatment, the Toxin will be injected directly into the muscles that are responsible for contraction using an ultra-fine needle. The injections are virtually painless therefore require no anaesthetic and are completed within a matter of minutes.
The needle used to inject the Toxin is ultra-fine so the treatment is virtually painless and therefore requires no anaesthetic. In fact, most clients genuinely report hardly feeling the injections at all.
Depending on your individual requirements which will be discussed during your Free consultation, as an example 3 areas would cost £240.
Your first step is a FREE NO OBLIGATION consultation at Skintique Clinic. Your appointment will be booked with Dr. Natalia Hancock.
After taking a full medical history Dr Natalia Hancock will discuss the treatment and your expectations with you. You will also be provided with detailed information on the procedure and the likely outcomes. Should you wish to go ahead with the treatment after a cooling off period another appointment will be made with Dr Hancock.
On arrival for your treatment you will be asked to check over your medical history form to confirm that nothing has changed. You will be then asked to complete a treatment consent form.
The procedure its self requires that several tiny injections of Botox to be injected precisely into the muscles that cause the frown lines. Pain is considered to be minimal and no anaesthesia is needed, though ice may be used to numb the area before and after your Botox treatment. This is a simple and quick process lasting approximately 20 minutes but no longer than half an hour. It involves no downtime so there is no disruption to your lifestyle and you can resume to normal activities straight after your treatment.
You will be invited back into the clinic for review of your procedure two weeks after your initial appointment, as this is how long Botox requires to take full effect. This is to ensure you are 100% happy with your results. If required adjustments can be made during this appointment.
Before leaving the clinic, our team will arrange your next appointment in 3-4 months time.
