Anti-wrinkle Injections

Introduction to Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most popular cosmetic treatment in the UK for the removal and reduction of wrinkles. If you want to soften facial lines and wrinkles, but without looking unnatural, then this is definitely something we can achieve with this treatment at Face Medical Clinic.

Our wrinkle relaxing injections are currently referred to as Botox ®, and are a form of Botulinum Toxin, which is a prescription only medication that can be administered only by doctors, nurses or dentists. With an injectable product such as Botox ®, we can not only treat fine lines and wrinkles, but also help to reduce excessive sweating.  Wrinkle relaxing injections can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers, in what is usually referred to as a “non-surgical facelift”.

Consultation

Even if you feel you are certain of the treatment you need, at Face Medical Clinic in Heywood, Manchester, we will always ask our patients to come for an initial, complimentary, bespoke consultation and skin analysis with our Founder and highly experienced Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner, Deborah Vines. The purpose of this consultation is to allow us to identify your skin’s individual makeup, and provide a bespoke, tailored treatment plan that is created with your specific needs and expectations in mind. We endeavour to deliver the highest levels of care and a personalised experience to every patient, from the moment they set foot in our clinic, all the way through to aftercare.

Procedure

The only wrinkle relaxing injectable products we use at the Face Medical Clinic is Botox ® by Allergan, which we feel is the best on the market. Botox works by partially blocking the nerve impulses, and temporarily relaxes the muscles within the treated area. Most commonly, wrinkle relaxing injections are required around the eyes, in the forehead and in-between the eyebrows. The procedure is quick and simple, and only takes about 10-15 minutes at Face Medical Clinic. Effects last 3-4 months, after which a top up treatment will be required if you want to maintain great results.

Aftercare

At the Face Medical Clinic, our highly experienced and well qualified team will always provide you with comprehensive aftercare advice before you leave the clinic after your wrinkle relaxing treatment. Side effects are very uncommon, but it is possible to experience slight swelling at the injection site, with the chance of a little bruising too. If the unlikely event that you do bruise post treatment, this can often be easily disguised with a little makeup.
