Anti-Wrinkle Injections at Our Essex Clinics
For a natural, rejuvenated look, anti-wrinkle injections will relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
You can now get anti-wrinkle injections at our clinics in Langdon Hills, Hornchurch or Rayleigh.
Crows feet, frown lines and wrinkles that are more pronounced by over-expression of the muscles, can all be reduced by relaxing the underlying muscles in the face.
As the skin ages, it loses collagen and elastin which reduces its bounce and natural youthfulness. By relaxing the facial muscles, the wrinkles and lines that show during facial expressions are reduced in order to give a more youthful appearance.
Compared to surgical face-lifts, the treatment is a lot less invasive with most treatments being carried out within 30 minutes and hardly any downtime.
How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?
The anti-wrinkle injections used at YouthTopia use the active ingredient “Botulinum Toxin” to temporarily relax facial muscles.
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that is the key ingredient in anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox, which is one, but not the only brand of anti-wrinkle injections available.
Botulinum toxin is one of the most poisonous substances known to man but when used in small doses, such as in anti-wrinkle injections, can be used to cause the temporary paralysis of muscles.
By paralysing specific facial muscles, the facial skin is more relaxed during over-expression such as smiling and frowning.
The treatment is not permanent and will require future treatments to maintain results as the anti-wrinkle injections are absorbed by the body over time.
What To Expect from Anti-Wrinkle Injections
There is no pain to be expected during anti-wrinkle injections and you’ll be able to get on with your day right after treatment.
When you come in for anti-wrinkle injections, we’ll begin the treatment by applying a topical numbing cream to the areas of your face that you’d like to target.
This will eliminate any pain that you may feel from the injection, which is a very small needle to begin with.
There is no pain associated with the substance we inject into you. Anti-wrinkle injections prevent nerve signals from being transmitted so pain will not be expected.
Once the treatment is completed, you may feel a slight discomfort as the numbing cream wears off, but you’ll be ready to get on with your day as soon as you’re done.
The treatment will be noticeable after around 3 – 4 days and will continue to improve over the coming two weeks.
The effects of anti-wrinkle injections will wear off gradually and, if not topped up, will last around 3 or 4 months.
Booking Your Anti-Wrinkle Injection Appointment
Before we proceed with your anti-wrinkle injections, we’ll always sit down and have a chat about what you’d like to achieve with anti-wrinkle injections.
During this consultation, we’ll discuss the full implications of the anti-wrinkle injections, as well as suggest alternative treatments if we think they may be better suited to achieving your beauty goals.
If we agree that anti-wrinkle injections are right for you, we can carry out the treatment right there and then and you’ll be leaving our clinic in less than an hour with a fresh, new look.
