Frequently Asked Questions
Anti-wrinkle injectables are made from a drug made called Botulinum Toxin which has been FDA approved and used for both medical and cosmetic purposes for over 20 years with no known adverse effects. Like most cosmetic treatments, side effects can occur, some clients report mild bruising whilst very occasionally- approximately 1-3% – experience a ‘droopy eyelid’ both however can be corrected or will fade in time. To reduce the risk of complications it is important that anti-wrinkle injectables are administered by highly qualified practitioners in a safe and medical environment.
Of course! The ‘frozen’ look many of us associate with anti-wrinkle injectables is only caused when too much toxin is administered into one area. we target small specific muscles that are responsible for unwanted lines and wrinkles only. This means normal facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, or looking surprised will be unaffected. During your consultation, your practitioner will talk you through how the treatment can be used for subtle effects, so no one need know your secret.
When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent. When the muscles in our face move, a message is sent from the brain via nerves to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables are a natural protein that works by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
It has been reported that, if used regularly, anti-wrinkle injectables can delay and prevent the signs of ageing. As we know facial movement such as squinting, and frowning can cause lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin restricts facial muscle movement which means signs of ageing can be prevented.
Anti-wrinkles injectables are mainly used for the face. Forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet lines around the eyes, and the “11 lines” between the eyebrows are the most popular areas however other uses include lifting eyebrows, decreasing the “orange peel” appearance of the chin and lifting the corners of the mouth.
You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after leaving the clinic, although it is important to avoid anything strenuous for 24 hours such as going to the gym. Side effects are rare, but occasionally some clients experience bruising, but this usually fades quickly.
Before you leave the clinic at the end of your treatment, we will book you in for a free check-up 2 weeks later, so that we can review the results of your treatment once it has taken full effect. We can also book your next appointment in 3-4 months times to ensure you maintain your new look! Using high SPF sun cream to protect your skin from sun damage can keep your skin looking younger for longer.

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and in some areas wrinkles begin to appear. Facial creams only work on the top layer / superficial layer of the skin and they are not able to remove and smooth already formed imperfections.
Hyaluronic acid, which is the base of the fillers that we use, is a substance found naturally in the human body. This is what we use to correct some wrinkes and imperfections. The product is injected just below the outer layer of the skin and fills the wrinkles from the inside ! The hyaluronic acid has water binding properties that provides excellent moisturization as well. Wth hyaluronic acid we are able to correct naso-labial folds near the nose, marrionette lines around the mouth and improve the contour, definition and plumpness of the lips. The effects last for up to a year but commonly need updating between 6-9 months.
Young skin is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. Hyaluronic acid absorbs moisture and keeps your skin well hydrated for a youthful look.
As we age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid and fine lines start to appear on the face. Some lines become wrinkles due to outside factors like sun exposure, diet and years of facial muscle movement. Fat loss can create sagging and turn lines into folds, too. The ageing process also causes our skin to become dry and facial volume decreases. Gravity pulls the skin down, resulting in folds and sagging.
Juvederm formulations treat everything from fine lines and wrinkles to deep folds and sagging. Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid facial filler which is smooth and long lasting. During the treatment the gel will be injected under your skin using a fine needle. The gel will then fill facial lines and wrinkles or add subtle volume.
Treatments can last between 9-18 months depending on the product injected and the individual. Full consultation will be given to discuss specialised treatments and realistic outcomes.
