Anti-Wrinkle Injections

 

LWH-112It is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum. It is used in very tiny amounts to paralyse the facial muscles by blocking the signals from the brain that trigger the muscle fibres to contract.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections is injected under the skin into the muscle using a very fine needle. It is normally used on the upper part of the face to treat vertical frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet. By ‘freezing’ these muscles, lines become less noticeable and can even disappear completely. You can expect good results from a single treatment, but the effect is not permanent. Botox will usually last for up to 6 months until a repeat treatment is required in order to maintain the results.

The area to be treated is numbed with a local anaesthetic cream to cause minimal discomfort. Immediately after the injection there may be mild swelling, but this usually subsides within 48 hours. You can return to work and all normal activities straight away. The results will be noticeable after no more than a week.

Studies over the last 15 years have shown Botox to be safe and effective and side effects are rare. In around 1% of patients temporary drooping of the eyebrow may occur, although this should resolve itself within a few weeks. Botox is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Smooth lines & wrinkles, enjoy a fresher, younger-looking appearance

The most common areas to treat include wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region) and around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). Our Surgeons at London Welbeck Hospital are renowned for achieving subtle but highly effective results. With this in mind, we invite our patients back after two weeks for a reassessment and if required or desired we will administer additional product at no additional charge. Our aim is always to achieve the very best results for you and exceed your expectations, each and every time.

 

Benefits
  • Smoothes lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Softens frown lines & delays the deepening of lines & wrinkles
  • Delivers a fresher, more youthful appearance
  • Greater clothing options & choices

 

Procedure

Using a very fine needle, the product is injected into the facial muscles and works by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles, thereby softening the appearance of the line or wrinkle. The skin above the muscles becomes nice and smooth after a period of between three to 14 days. It takes this time for the product to settle, attached itself to the nerve endings and get to work. A very fine needle is used and the treatment is considered painless by the majority of patients.

Visibly clearer, brighter, rejuvenated looking skin

The Image Skincare Beta Lift and Perfection Lift Peels are gentle yet effective medical grade peels which can only be administered by a Registered General Nurse. What this means is that not only are the results more effective but you can rest assured you are in the safest possible hands. The best advice is not to let the word “peel” put you off, a peel can be an entirely gentle yet effective way to improve your skin. Our skin cells turn over and build up every 28-40 days depending on age, so it makes sense to have a resurfacing treatment every month to six weeks for optimum skin health.

 

Benefits
  • Brightening, rejuvenating
  • Improves texture & tone
  • Reduction in lines & wrinkles
  • Rebalances skin, removes acne and red marks
  • Prevents break outs
Procedure

A facial peel involves a professional exfoliation of the top layers of the skin using medical grade ingredients like salicylic acid and lactic acid, to remove the build up of dead skin cells and neutralise bacteria (if needed). Depending on your skin’s needs and the results you wish to achieve high doses plant stem cells, peptides, anti-oxidants and vitamins are then applied to the skin. Not only will skin appear visibly clearer and smoother but skin will be brighter, calmer and rejuvenated. The products you use at home are better able to penetrate the skin and below the surface collagen is kick started to continue the benefits at home

Fill lines, restore volume and enjoy a fresher, more youthful appearance.

As we age, the collagen that gives our skin durability and flexibility declines which results in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and the loss of fullness and volume. Dermal fillers are an extremely popular and successful method of treating these concerns and deliver a fresher, more youthful appearance.

Benefits
  • Reduces laughter lines & smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Fuller more youthful face
  • Tightens loose skin, addresses loss of volume around the jaw
  • Fuller lips & cheeks
  • Delivers a fresher, more youthful appearance
Procedure

Dermal fillers involve an injection of a gel-like product (depending on the type of filler) to physically fill and plump out the line or area of concern. The product acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results. There are a wide range of fillers to choose from which your Nurse will discuss in great detail and make the best recommendation for you.
