Anti-wrinkle injections block the nerve signals to the dynamic muscles of facial expression, limiting the repetitive movement and subsequent skin wrinkles.
By commencing regular anti-wrinkle injections before the appearance of wrinkles, you will prevent the onset of wrinkles and fine lines. Therefore, it is essential you keep up to date with appointments to prevent muscle activity from occurring.
You will need to schedule your next preventative treatment appointment for 3-4 months. We recommend booking this early to ensure you keep your treatments at the recommended schedule and get your desired time slot. If you choose not to book, we can send you a polite reminder message closer to the time.
The Upper Face (Upper Face Botox Treatment)
We can use anti-wrinkle injections to slightly lift or enhance the outer arch of the eyebrow and smooth out lines and wrinkles affecting the forehead, frown lines and crow's feet (around the eyes).
The Lower Face (Lower Face Botox Treatment)
Your treatment may include additional regions to restore smoothness and rejuvenation to the lower face. Treatment areas may include:
The bunny lines (nose scrunch lines)
Gummy smile (too much gum showing)
Smokers' lines above the lip
Corners of the lip that turn downwards
Smile lines on the lower cheek and dimpling of the chin
The Neck (Nefertiti Neck Lift or Neck Botox)
A Nefertiti Neck Lift includes injecting the neck muscles to reduce wrinkles, improve the appearance of fine lines, and target sagging jowls. Treatment will provide a subtle, overall lift to the lower face.
Am I too young for Preventative Anti-wrinkle Injections?
Most young people do not need preventative Botox treatments.
The suppleness of young skin means that expressive lines and muscle movements do not stay etched in the skin (visible wrinkles and fine lines).
For those whose skin is not showing signs of ageing (generally younger than their late twenties), we'd recommend starting a personalised medical-grade skincare protocol.
Your medical-grade skincare protocol will combat ageing and treat specific concerns such as redness, acne, pigmentation and sun damage.
Oh, and the number one rule for preventative skincare at any age?
Wear sunscreen daily!
What outcome can I expect from treatment?
We use appropriate quantities of botulinum toxin in all areas to weaken rather than freeze the muscle groups. By using the correct dosage, your muscles will retain movement in the particularly active regions of the face.
The overall look that we can achieve is one of balance. It restores smoothness and rejuvenation to the whole face and not just the individual areas of the upper face.
Please note that we will tailor your injections to actual areas of concern through consultation with you. We do not use a one size fits all approach towards treatment.
Natural results or a frozen look?
We tend to prefer treatment effects to be both natural and anti-ageing. We tailor treatment to suit you and aim to achieve your desired results but remember, youthful faces do move!
The Forehead - To Treat, or Not To Treat?
For most women, treatment of the forehead can prevent the compensatory eyebrow raise, which gives a more feminine appearance. Treating the forehead will often lead to a more masculine appearance. It can even result in the look of heavier brows and eyelids.
We appreciate that you may have had your forehead treated in the past and may like to continue treating the forehead. We will discuss this area of concern with you and tailor your treatment to suit your desired results. For example, you could consider a lower dose via ultra-targeted microinjections, or we may recommend not treating the forehead at all.
We will offer our expert opinion, but the decision to treat or not will be yours to make.
Is a consultation required?
We do not require you to attend a face-to-face consultation for anti-wrinkle injections. Instead, we will ask that you send specific photos of your face. Our expert trainers will assess your photos and give us the go-ahead to discuss and book you in for treatments they deem beneficial.
If you prefer, you can attend a face-to-face consultation at our Harley Street clinic.
A thorough discussion with our trainers and the delegate carrying out the treatment will take place on the day of your appointment. If you have not had an anti-wrinkle treatment in the past, we recommend you attend a face-to-face consultation at our Harley Street clinic. If you have had the treatment before, you will likely not need a face-to-face consultation.
You must understand what the treatment entails before booking. No refunds can be issued should you decide not to go ahead with treatment on the day of your appointment.
