Anti-Wrinkles Treatment

These treatments aim to smooth and soften your frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.



Crease lines and wrinkles are a natural process of ageing due to a combination of ageing, sun damage, gravity and the muscle action of laughing, talking, frowning and crying.  

Hyperactivity of the facial expression muscles often results in the development of deep frown lines, forehead lines and/or crow’s feet. Injecting botulinum toxin (Botox) into the affected area temporarily relaxes the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkling, giving the face a more relaxed and pleasant appearance. The wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether. 

The initial effects of treatment become visible within 48 to 72 hours. The maximum effect is reached in 1 to 2 weeks. A top up may be required at this stage to reach the required dose level for a mutual achievable result.  

Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. 

The effect of treatment generally lasts for 3 to 4 months. Re-treatment is then required and for an optimum effect treatment is recommended three to four times a year. 

Costs vary from £250 - £ 350 depending on what your desired outcome is. In order to achieve a holistic look, you may also benefit from dermal fillers. If you have both fillers and BTX, the cost is usually reduced.

 

Yes. Between the eyebrows, the vertical frown lines result from overactive muscles. These muscles are also used when concentrating. By drawing the eyebrows inward, one expresses anger, confusion or anxiety. Repeated often enough, permanent skin creases develop and even when relaxed, these frown lines remain. Neutralization of these overactive brow muscles helps eliminate these negative appearances. 

You may also need some filler to correct any remaining lines in this area. Nonetheless, botox is most likely to be one of the first treatments that we try.

 

Wrinkles radiating from the corner of your eyes caused by smiling, laughing or squinting are especially distressing to some individuals. Previously, no reasonable medical or surgical solution improved this problem due to the strong underlying muscles. Even with deepest chemical peels or laser resurfacing techniques, rapid recurrence of these lines around the eyes was inevitable. Now, Azzalure®/BOTOX® has proved to be effective at preventing the recurrence of wrinkles by inhibiting the underlying muscles. 

 

Some individuals use different muscles for raising the brows; others “talk” with their forehead.  Azzalure®/BOTOX®are used to smooth the horizontal forehead lines. 

 

This treatment is safe if injected in the right place in correct doses. There are some risks which the practitioner should tell you about before treatment.

Review

I chose to have my treatment at Cosmetier because of the very convenient location.  It is in a medical setting rather than a beauty salon.   I found the service excellent, friendly and responsive.  I was given lots of good information. I received sensible talking through of notes and outcomes of treatment. I would recommend Cosmetier to friends and family.
