Expression lines such as wrinkles are one of the first signs of ageing and more commonly occur in sun exposed areas. On the face wrinkles most commonly appear around the eyes (commonly called crow’s feet), around the mouth (smoker's lines), the forehead and between the eyes (frown lines). Hyperactivity of the facial expression muscles, repeatedly creasing the skin, often results in the development of deep frown lines, forehead and crow’s feet. Some lines around the chin, nose, mouth and muscle bands on the neck can also be treated as well as excessive sweating.
Consultations are carried out by highly trained clinicians in aesthetic medicine. Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used in cosmetic dermatology. They work by reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles under the skin. They are considered safe and well-tolerated with a visible improvement of wrinkles while expressions can be preserved. There is a preventative effect if maintained regularly.
The procedure takes between 10-30 minutes to carry out. The discomfort is minimal (at the time of injection only) as very fine needles are used and local anaesthetic cream can be used. There is no recovery time involved and sports can me recommenced the following day. A consent is completed with pre procedure photos. A leaflet is provided and a follow up 2-3 weeks after the injection.
The initial effects of treatment become visible within 72 hours but the maximum effect is reached in about 1-2 weeks. The effect of treatment generally lasts for 3 to 6 months. In a very small number of individuals, the injection does not work as satisfactory or for as long as usual. We also provide treatment for hyperhydrosis -excessive sweating .
At Mums we have an aesthetic doctor and an aesthetic trained registered nurse.
The needle which we use is very tiny the same type used for insulin. Most people don’t feel the injection or just a slight discomfort. If needles terrify you or you don’t want to feel it, talk to use about local anaesthetic.
Botox is metabolized by the body, and one treatment will last around 3 months, maybe longer.
Of course, apart from some little red bumps from the injection site you should feel no difference. The red bumps will disappear after 20 minutes.
