We are delighted to offer the latest facial aesthetic treatments along side dental treatment. They can help soften expression lines and define facial contours and are quick and easy to undertake. The results can really turn back the years.
You will have a full consultation before treatment is undertaken, when all aspects of the procedures will be fully explained.
This is a popular method of softening facial expression lines and making the face look refreshed.
- Treatment is by injections that relax the tiny facial muscles which create expression lines
- The muscles no longer contract as forcefully so the overlying skin stays smooth and crease-free
- The medication is injected using a very fine needle in very precise locations on the face
- The result is a more relaxed and youthful look
- The procedure is simple and straightforward
After around two or three days the effects are seen with the full benefits becoming visible up to fourteen days after treatment. Average results last around four to five month before repeat treatments are required.
Wrinkle Relaxants – Frequently Asked Questions
How does this work?
Wrinkle relaxants are injections that work by weakening the muscles into which it is injected. As facial muscles contract, the loose skin above those muscles wrinkles. By weakening the muscles, the wrinkles are reduced.
How long do results last?
The effects of this treatment can last up to three months
How many treatments are needed before you see results?
When injected appropriately, the results will be seen after the first treatment. It takes two to four days before the muscle weakening effect takes place. The maximum effect occurs at about 10 to 14 days. The effect then lasts up to three months.
How is this treatment done?
A very small amount of wrinkle relaxant is injected into each of the target areas using a very small needle. Because the needle is fine, only a small amount of the liquid is injected and the associated discomfort is minimal.
Will I experience any side effects?
Side effects are very rare. A patient may experience localised pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.
Who will undertake my treatment?
All treatments are undertaken by a qualified facial aesthetic practitioner, who is fully experienced in all aspects of these treatments. All treatments are carried out in the clinical environments of our surgeries. So rest assured you are in very safe hands.
