At Breast & Body Clinic we are happy to offer anti-anging treatments to our patients. We focus on using non-surgical treatments used to prevent wrinkling by reducing facial muscle contractions, that are safe and very effective to achieve noticeable results over time.
You may be aware that there are several different products on the market using botulinum toxin. Their effects are similar, the differences are in the amounts that are needed to achieve these effects.
The botulinum toxin acts on a neuromascular junction to block neural transmission to muscles thus in effect paralazing them. But don’t worry the effects are only temporary. Depending on the dose, the effects wear off in 3-6 months. So if you don’t like it for some reason, you know that it will soon return to whatever is the normal appearance for you.
The effect of muscle paralysis means that the lines on your face that become prominent with age such as frown lines, forehead line and crow’s feet around the eyes, can relax over time and give you a more youthful look. The amount of relaxation does depend on how much toxin we use, so you do not have to lose all expression for instance, if you don’t want to. On the other hand if you don’t like any lines you may want a larger dose of product to be used.
What are the benefits?
- Reduces the appearance of frowns and worry lines around the forehead.
- Reduces the appearance of crows feet around the eyes.
- Gives your face a more rejuvenated and younger appearance.
- Unlike surgical facelifts, there is no downtime, which means you can get on with your day immediately after your treatment.
What is the procedure?
Dr Yunaev, a trained medical expert in anti-ageing wrinkle injections, will administer a tiny injection into the muscles surrounding the wrinkle, blocking the nerve impulses that trigger wrinkle causing contractions. The treatment takes around 10 minutes and is a safe, non-invasive procedure that leaves your skin looking and feeling renewed and youthful.
Will it hurt?
There is minimal discomfort, often being described as a small bite or sting that only lasts for a few seconds.
Are there any side effects?
There are no known permanent side effects of anti-ageing wrinkle injections. Temporary effects could be tenderness and bruising of the treated area. You may feel some localised pain, have inflammation and swelling, tenderness, redness, and bleeding or bruising after the procedure, however this is usually restricted to the injected area and generally disappears within a few hours, or a few days if you are more sensitive.
