Wrinle Reduction - Facial Muscle Relaxant

Wrinkle reduction techniques, are incredibly popular worldwide and increasingly part of every day life here in the UK. They can be used to prevent and reduce lines and wrinkles which appear as:

  • Frown lines between the eyes
  • Forehead lines
  • Crows feet

What does wrinkle reduction do?

Wrinkle reduction is a simple treatment that can dramatically soften facial expression lines and wrinkles on the face leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.

How does wrinkle reduction work?

A very small amount of the wrinkle reduction relaxant is injected very precisely into several locations on the face. Impulses are blocked from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that help contribute to wrinkles. The muscles therefore cannot contract and tend to relax.

Although the results are dramatic, it will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

How long will it take to perform wrinkle reduction?

This is a simple non surgical procedure that, depending on the number of areas you wish to treat, only takes 30 minutes and allows you to return home immediately afterwards.

How many wrinle reduction treatments will I need?

You may need to have top-up injections every 4 to 6 months to maintain your desired appearance.

Clinical studies indicate that the duration of treatment benefit is increased over time, meaning that you should require injections less frequently in the future.

What results can I expect from wrinkle reduction?

The overall effect is a smoother, natural-looking, more youthful appearance.

When will I begin to notice the effects of wrinkle reduction?

Once you have been treated, it usually takes two to fourteen days before treatment actually takes effect.

How long do wrinkle reduction results last for?

Individuals vary however, for most people the results last from 4 to 6 months.

Is wrinkle reduction safe?

Wrinkle reduction® treatments have been safely and successfully used for more than 12 years on over 1 million people worldwide. Any side effects are temporary and localised to the area injected.

Are there any wrinkle reduction side effects?

Immediately after the injection there may be mild swelling and redness around the treated area, however this swelling subsides within a few days. No sedation or local anaesthetic is required for the treatment, meaning your everyday activities can be resumed straight away.
