Our facial muscles move our skin and enable us to show expressions. Over the years our skin looses elasticity causing lines, wrinkles and skin sagging. Some of these effects can be treated very successfully with anti wrinkle injections. Other effects might need a different type of treatment i.e. dermal fillers.
Anti wrinkle injections such as botox are extremely useful in the prevention of these signs of ageing. By relaxing the muscles they keep the skin smooth and supple. Repeated use can help to reduce the signs of ageing, but not always eliminate them without the combination of other treatments.
• Frown lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows
• Crows feet
• Bunny lines
• Smokers lines on upper lips
• Prominent chin creases
• Wrinkles under the eyes
• Sagging skin and horizontal age lines on the neck
• Droopy or asymmetric eyebrows
You will already have had your initial consultation with us. We will have assessed whether you have any of the below conditions. If that is the case then you are not eligible to have anti-wrinkle injections:
• Pregnancy or those who are breastfeeding
• Neuromuscular disorders including but not limited to Bell’s Palsy and blood coagulation disorders
The injections only take a couple of minutes to administer. Anesthesia is not required as the treatment is relatively pain free. The product is injected into the muscle using a fine needle in order to minimize discomfort and maximize accuracy. The amount is minimal and there are usually no more than 4 -5 injections per area.
There are usually only a very few or no after effects associated with anti wrinkle injections. Directly after treatment you may see some swelling, mild redness and sometimes slight bleeding at the site of injection. These temporary side effects usually subside within 15-30 minutes. If you have sensitive skin you are more likely to experience these effects.
You are welcome to relax in our welcome area and touch up your make-up if you prefer to wait for these signs to disappear. Results are usually seen within a week from treatment and last on average between 3-4 months but with continued treatment may last up to 6 months.
To maximise the effects of anti wrinkle injections we recommend you take the following aftercare steps:
• Contract the muscles in the treated areas every 10 minutes for one hour after your treatment
• Avoid excessive rubbing of treated areas for 24 hours
• Avoid exercise for 24 hours
• Avoid lying flat or excessive bending over for two hours after treatment
• Avoid facial beauty treatments for two weeks
• Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours
Results may vary as each individual is different but we invite you back to the Preston Clinic 2 weeks after your treatment to follow up with you to ensure you are happy with your procedure.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY
I have really thin skin and my forehead lines where starting to bother me. I decided to look into having Botox, but I was very anxious about the side effects. At my consultation my fears were lifted and I decided to go for it. I now have regular treatments every 4 months and my forehead has never looked so smooth.
