Relax those wrinkles Away 

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Botulinum toxin A injections are a purified form of toxin that are injected into identified muscles to stop movement for a limited time, typically 3-4 months but may last longer. 
Other uses can be excessive sweating, that is causing embarrassment and loss of self-esteem, or a square jaw due to an enlarged masseter muscle caused by teeth grinding. 
Botulinum toxin A is a neuromodulator that blocks certain chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. This will in turn relax wrinkles that are overlying the injected muscles on movement any static lines at rest will remain but with regular treatments may soften in time. This effect typically takes 3-5 days post treatment. 
Standard treatments for 3 areas include smile lines, frown lines and forehead. Advanced treatments with botulinum toxin A include bunny lines, downturned smile, chin dimpling, gummy smile, lip flip, ‘Nefertiti’ neck lift, eyebrow lift, excessive sweating to underarms, palms of hands, soles of feet and jaw slimming.

Anti Wrinkle Treatment

Botulin Toxin A is a prescription only medication and will require a face-to-face consultation by your practitioner. This will include a medical history, current medications/treatment, discussion around your need, suitability, and consent. Potential side effects will also be discussed at the consultation. You will never be rushed and a decision to commence treatment does not have to be decided straight away, a prescription will be generated if you decide to go ahead. At this point a deposit of 50% of the treatment cost will be taken, the medication will be prescribed for you and a return visit to the clinic will be arranged. Occasionally a review visit for any adjustments will be required at 2-3 weeks post treatment and is complimentary.

*All new patients will be treated conservatively as a precaution, as once injected it cannot be removed. Safety always.

Before your treatment please ensure No alcohol for 24 hrs

  • Have  a light meal

  • Ensure you are well hydrated

  • Be make up free

  • Avoid medication that can increase bruising, including supplements

  • Do not stop your prescription medication.

  • Ensure you have had enough time to consider

  • Choose your injector wisely

  • What age can you have anti wrinkle injections?
    The Law requires you to be 18 years old. However, in this clinic we would advise that it is not indicated in someone so young. Early 30’s or a little earlier for preventative treatment could be considered following a thorough consultation in clinic. BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) is a condition we are very aware of and if this is suspected we would not treat and would refer you to your GP (with your consent) to get the specialist help required for your wellbeing.
  • How long does it take to start working?
    It takes about 3-5 days. Adjustments can be made at 2-3 weeks post treatment. After 4 weeks the effect will gradually wear off. The effect typically lasts up to 4 months. We don’t re inject under 12 weeks.
  • I am over 65 in age can I still have Anti Wrinkle injections?
    The simple answer is yes, but it is not licensed for over 65’s and it will only be effective in dynamic wrinkles. Static lines will remain, so you need to be realistic about your expectations. Your practitioner will guide you, as there may be more relevant treatments eg skin boosters to improve your complexion.
  • Does it ever stop working?
    In rare cases you can develop resistance, in which case the medication can be changed to a different brand. We, at Glow Aesthetics by Dora will always use a product that contains less protein as our first line of treatment, therefore less chance of reaction or resistance.
  • Does exercise affect the length of effectiveness?
    Yes,strenuous exercise is known to shorten the effectiveness of botulin toxin A
  • How can I make my treatment last longer?
    Shade your face from the sun, don’t exercise immediately after treatment, avoid the sauna and hot baths/showers be gentle with your face for 48 hrs post treatment, choose your injector wisely. Take a zinc supplement, studies have demonstrated that this may help.
