anti wrinkle treatment

Smoothing out laughter lines and wrinkles has never been faster or easier with anti-ageing treatments, giving you an instant boost and renewed confidence in your appearance.

Keeping your face smooth and supple is not an easy feat. As we grow older our skin begins to loose elasticity and wrinkles start to form.  The sun and our daily lifestyles can also do this damage to our skin.

Anti-ageing treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out those lines on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth without any need for surgery.

We use the very best anti wrinkle products, in a clinical environment performed by highly qualified aesthetic practitioners.  We carry out the treatments in a clean, safe and hygienic setting. 

Frequently asked questions

Where can Anti Wrinkle treatments be used?

The areas we treat are the forehead,  around the eyes and bunny lines on the nose.  You can use the wrinkle treatment under the arm pit to help stop sweating.  It is also great for a gummy smile to help relax the muscles to make a smile more attractive.

Will it hurt?

Having the anti wrinkle treatment is not painful at all.

Will you be able to numb the area?

Yes we use anaesthetic cream on all areas before we treat you. This will definitely help you to feel more comfortable, even though the treatment is very comfortable and quick.

What will the area look like afterwards?

You may have some dot swelling after your treatment, very rarely you might get tiny little bruises or some temporary redness.  This will subside quickly.

POST-TREATMENT CARE

POST-TREATMENT CARE

After treatment, slight redness, swelling, itching and some tenderness at the site of the injections may occur. This is normal and will generally disappear over the next 24-48 hours. When the lips have been treated, the swelling can last for up to 1 week, and the lips may appear uneven during this time. Please follow massage techniques shown each day to balance any areas that appear uneven.

  • Avoid touching the treated area for 6 hours. After this, the face can be lightly cleansed and make-up applied lightly and gently (preferably mineral make-up).
  • Apply some ice to the area if tender/swollen – such as an ice lolly.
  • Avoid alcohol the day before / 24 hours after.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise right after the treatment for up to 48 hours.
  • If possible, avoid direct sunlight and wear a sunscreen (sun may reduce the duration of the effect of the product plus prevents sun damage).
  • Avoid gym/sunbed/saunas for 24 hours post treatment.
  • Massage the area with a moisturiser to reduce any areas that appear lumpy.
  • Avoid creams with Alpha Hydroxy Acid or Glycolic acid around the area.
  • If you suffer cold sores, there is always a risk that injections around the lips may cause a flare. Use a topical cold sore cream if signs appear.
  • Patients taking aspirin, clopidogrel, warfarin and other blood thinning medications should be aware that there will be increased likelihood of bleeding or bruising at injection sites.
