ANTI-AGEING INJECTIONSAnti-Ageing Injections help as we begin to age. We see the effects on our faces with the development of exaggerated lines when facial muscles contract. Typically in the brow area, around the outer edges of the eyes, and in the forehead. Therefore, these three areas are the most commonly known and treated areas. However, anti-ageing injections are useful for other small single extra areas ( e.g; eyebrow lift, under eye, smile ripple lines, upper lip, sad lip etc) and are charged at £40 per extra area. Teeth Clenching/Grinding can be successfully treated with Anti-Ageing Injections. These are usually charged at a minimum of £200 but are subject to the severity of the condition and the mass of the muscle. Lower face lift, jawline reduction, migraine treatment, Neferetti and neck are also treatable – Prices on consultation. However, the three most popular areas are the forehead, the frown lines between the eyes and the crows feet. All other areas can be quoted at consultation. Male Patients: In order to achieve the desired effect in some male patients with powerful musculature it may be necessary to use higher doses for which there will be a fee of £40 on top of the above prices. Hyperhidrosis: Treatment of excessive underarm sweating £450. This treatment can free you of this embarrassing condition for between 6-12 months and is very successful. THIS CAN LITERALLY BE A LIFE CHANGING TREATMENT.

What are Anti-Ageing Injections
It is probably best to describe what they are not! They are not botulism. Botulism food poisoning is caused by massive amounts of botulinum bacteria creating massive amounts of toxin. Anti-Ageing Injections have been used in very dilute amounts for many years in ophthalmology, neurology and for cosmetic cases worldwide. In our treatments we use a miniscule amount of the chemical secreted by the botulism bacteria. There are no live bacteria in our Anti-Ageing Injections
Are they safe?
Perfectly. It is impossible to get poisoning from our injections as we use such diluted preparations.
How does it work?
Injections are given into the affected areas which temporarily put the over active muscles to sleep for about 3 months. This freezing of the muscle is always temporary and can never be permanent. So the muscle can be likened to an animal hibernating, the muscle temporarily hibernates.
Will it leave my face numb?
No. There is no change in your skin sensation.
Do the injections hurt?
No. The needles are very fine and the amount injected each time is very small. Some people say that it feels like a small bug bite so local anaesthesia or sedation is not required.
Which wrinkles can be treated?
The most commonly treated areas are the forehead, between the eyes (frown lines) and the crow’s-feet around the eyes. However, other areas can also be treated successfully such as the lower eyelid, décolletage, neck, lips, chin and bunny lines on the nose.
Will I be able to move my face afterwards?
Certainly! Just not as much. Extreme movement of the muscles that caused the wrinkles will have been prevented but the other normal facial muscles will not have been affected.
When will I see the difference?
Usually in 3-5 days but individuals vary. The greatest effect, however, is seen after 2 weeks or so.
How will I look after treatment?
You will notice a slight redness after treatment around the injection sites. This will settle after a few hours. You can apply an ice pack to help reduce redness and make up can be used to cover the redness.
Are there any side effects?
It is a very safe treatment. However, side effects can occur but are very rare. They can include slight bruising at the injection sites, slight headache and sometimes a slight drooping of the eyelid, which would only last a week or so. Because the effects of the injections are completely reversible any side effects are temporary and short lasting.
Is there anything I should avoid after treatment?
During the first 4 hours after treatment, we advise you to avoid vigorous exercise and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. Otherwise you can carry on as normal. You should also avoid rubbing the treated area during this time. Exteremes of heat, sunbeds, saunas & steam rooms should be avoided for two weeks.
How long will it last?
Again, individuals vary. In most cases you can expect excellent results for three months, the crows feet area lasting slightly less, with a gradually diminishing effect over the following 3 months. Regular treatment ‘trains’ the muscles not to move as much so that, over time, less treatment is needed to keep the facial muscles relaxed.
How often will I need treatment?
On average most people like to come back about every 3-4 months or so when they first start their injections. People who have large facial muscles (like men) or who have very ‘expressive’ faces may require more frequent treatment. People who have regular top ups gradually require less and less treatment as their muscles are retrained.
What if I really don’t like the result?
That would be very unusual, but if that was so then remember that the effects are completely reversible and with a bit of patience you can have all your old wrinkles back.
Can anybody be treated with Anti-Ageing Injections?
Almost, but not if you are pregnant or suffer from any muscle wasting disease. We will not treat anyone under the age of 25, unless it is for hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating)
