Clinicians recommend anti-ageing injections to target various areas of concern, including the forehead, lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), and upper lip lines. These injections can also address deep lines, creases, and sagging caused by volume loss.
During your consultation, clinicians may suggest dermal fillers like Juvederm® or anti-wrinkle injections like BOTOX® (which contains botulinum toxin). It’s important to note that botulinum toxin is a prescription medication and should only be administered by a trained clinician to ensure a safe procedure.If you are considering anti-ageing treatment, it’s crucial to undergo a comprehensive consultation with a qualified professional.
Prior to proceeding with the treatment, it is vital to be well-informed about alternative options and fully aware of relevant facts, including potential risks and complications. Any questions or concerns you have will be addressed in detail during the consultation process.
Our clients are given ample time to make an informed decision, even if it means choosing not to proceed with the treatment. Likewise, our clinicians may refuse to offer treatment if they believe it is not in the client’s best interest. We are committed to providing open and honest advice.
Anti-ageing treatments are commonly used to treat lines and wrinkles around the face and neck, but they can also be used to treat other conditions such as hyperhidrosis and teeth grinding. In the case of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating in the hands, feet, armpits and face, botulinum toxin blocks the signals from the brain to the sweat glands. For bruxism or teeth grinding botulinum toxin relaxes the masseter muscle in the jaw, reducing teeth grinding.

Frequently Asked Questions
Rest assured, botulinum toxin is considered safe when administered by a qualified clinician. Cosmetic doses are administered in minuscule amounts, and with over 450,000 procedures performed annually in the UK, the incidence of allergic reactions is extremely rare.
Prior to your treatment, an initial consultation is mandatory, regardless of whether you’ve had previous sessions. Our experienced clinician will thoroughly assess your concerns and provide personalised recommendations for the most suitable treatment. Additionally, we offer dermal fillers and other treatments alongside or instead of botulinum toxin if we don’t think you’re a suitable candidate. We have your best interest at heart and will offer honest guidance on the optimal approach tailored to your specific needs
Anti-wrinkle treatments works by selectively denervating muscles when injected into them. It blocks the receptors for acetylcholine, a chemical responsible for muscle contraction, at the neuromuscular junction where nerves and muscles meet. This prevents the muscle from receiving the signal to contract, resulting in a relaxed and still appearance.
By targeting the muscles that cause skin creasing, diminishing or even eliminate wrinkles. The effects typically last for 3-5 months, as the muscle gradually develops new receptors and regains its ability to contract.
It is most effective in treating lines formed solely due to muscle contractions. By immobilizing the underlying muscle, the skin above it no longer creases. Consequently, the noticeable effects of the treatment are most prominent in frown lines and laughter lines.
It’s important to note that anti-ageing treatments cannot remove wrinkles that are permanently etched into the skin, irrespective of muscle movement. However, it can soften their appearance.
The effects of anti-wrinkle treatments typically last around 3-4 months, although in some cases, they can last up to 6 months.

Th toxin naturally leaves the body within approximately 48 hours. However, the treatment’s impact involves trimming the receptors of the injected muscles. Over several months, these receptors gradually grow back. This trimming effect temporarily reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines by limiting movement in the corresponding muscle.
Mostly the face where frequent movement can cause lines and wrinkles through expressions such as smiling and frowning. injections can effectively correct crow’s feet, forehead lines, vertical neck bands, grooves above the upper lip, and gummy smiles. Additionally injections can also be used to address concerns about excessive sweating (typically hands, feet and underarms) and to reduce migraines.

However, with multiple treatments, improved effects are observed as the muscles remain relaxed resulting in less skin creasing and reinforcement of wrinkles.
While some side effects may occur, they are primarily related to the injection process rather than the product itself. These can include minor redness or swelling at the injection site (which typically resolves within 1-2 hours), occasional minor bruising, headaches, and a very low risk of infection at the entry point. In extremely rare cases, temporary drooping of the eyelid may occur.
Although botulinum toxin is generally considered safe, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Women who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding, individuals with neurological conditions like Myasthenia Gravis and Parkinson’s Disease, those taking specific antibiotics (particularly Erythromycin), and individuals using blood-thinning medications such as Warfarin or Heparin should avoid the treatment.
Typically, the process takes around 10 minutes. However, for new customers, a 45-minute appointment is usually scheduled to allow for additional consultation and assessment.
