What are my options?

There are many options to help with improving the appearance and reducing the depth of undesirable facial lines including improving the skin texture, consitutuency of skin, relaxing muscles under the skin that are causing the skin to crease, filling out lost skin structure and volume underneath the skin.

A full consultation prior to any treatment booked will ensure that all options are discussed with you fully and the most suitable option for your desired outcome is carried out

Facial muscle relaxing treatments are used to relax hyperactive muscles in the face. In medicine, they have been safely and effectively used for the treatment of strabismus (cross eye) and blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) since the early eighties and cosmetically for relaxing muscles of facial expression, thereby softening the appearance of lines formed on the overlying skin giving a more youthful appearance.
Anti-ageing and anti wrinkle injections in Essex are carried out by medically trained doctors.

Most frequently asked questions

  • Have soft/deep lines or grooves
  • Want a more youthful and fresher appearance
  • Are aged between 20-60
  • Have undesirable facial expression lines
  • frown/worry lines
  • bunny lines on nose

  • ‘smokers’ lines above upper lip
  • Have sagging jowels
  • Have unattractive low eyebrows
  • Have difficulty applying eye makeup
  • Want appearance of larger eyes
  • Have unwanted habits e.g frowning, teeth grinding, squinting
  • Have undesirable strong, square jaw muscles
  • Have pain in tense muscles e.g. back, headaches, jaw muscles
  • Have unattractive chin dimpling and deep line between lip and chin
  • Have unsightly flared nostrils
  • Have a droopy nose
  • Have a droopy mouth
  • Have a facial asymmetry
  • Suffer from excessive sweating
When and for how long does Botulinum Toxin work?
After a few painless injections, a normal routine can continue. The initial effects of treatment become visible within 48-72 hours. The maximum effect is reached in about 2-3 weeks. Facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural and it will help harmonise the face. This relaxed fresher look will stay for 3-4 months initially and can last up to 6 months for some. After this the toxin is metabolised by the body.
How long will the procedure take?
At the initial visit the discussion and examination can take approximately half an hour. Once the injections begin, it’s all over in about 10-15 minutes.
Will the injections hurt?
No, I am very experienced and carry out a painless, most gentle technique. I use very fine insulin needles which are tiny micro needles that help make the procedure painless. If anything, most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite or sting. Discomfort is minimal and brief hence no need for anesthesia.
What will I look like after treatment?
The majority of patients will walk out of the treatment room with a few small red dots at the areas that have been injected. This slight redness typically takes about 15 minutes to go away. After that there is no signs to show that anti-wrinkle injections have been administered.
What can I or can't I do after treatment?
A full post op care will be discussed at the appointment. Life can carry on as normal . The treated area should not be touched. Lying down is not advised until 3-4 hours after the treatment and no alcohol or exercise should be taken that day. Then for 7 days post-treatment, no facials/chemical skin peels/laser resurfacing treatments or sun beds are recommended.
Is there anyone who should not have Botulinum Toxin treatments?
Yes, the following people should not have anti-wrinkle injections:

  • Trying to conceive, pregnant or breast feeding
  • Have certain blood clotting or muscle disorders
  • On certain medications, especially certain antibiotics, anaesthetics and muscle relaxants
  • Have an infection at the proposed injection site
  • Have an egg allergy

Patient medical history will be discussed at the consultation.

Is it safe?
Yes, when carried out by a highly trained medical professional. Botulinum toxin is available by prescription only and should only be administered by a health care professional. It is a widely known and highly used procedure initially being used medically for the treatment of cross-eye, uncontrollable blinking and perspiration problems in individuals. It has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use and has been used for over 20 years without any known long term effects. I have been trained by one of the leading experts in facial rejuvenation in the UK and also my thorough training through dentistry allows me to have the excellent standard of knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck and its musculature minimising the incidence of any significant side effects.
Can I get Botulism from an injection?
No, botulism is caused by very large amounts of toxin entering in the system usually from contaminated foods. The amount given in a typical cosmetic injection is too small to give a healthy patient a Botulism-like illness. Administered by a trained medical professional in the correct amount, there is no need to worry. When drugs are taken by mouth, they are distributed throughout the body by the bloodstream. In contrast, local injections are administered directly into the desired site of action, thus they are not expected to be present in the bloodstream at a measurable level following treatment at the recommended dosage or typically remain in the injected muscle, although some spread to adjacent muscles may occur.
Is Botulinum Toxin for me?
Non-surgical facial aesthetic options are by far cheaper and more cost effective than a surgical approach. The anti-wrinkle injection consultant will discuss finance options prior to having any treatment. Consultation visits are free of charge where you will have an opportunity to discuss treatment in detail and address any queries. Please ring 01708853019 to arrange for your free consultation appointment.

Which areas can Botulinum Toxin work on?
The treatment is commonly used on the frown lines between the eyebrows, and other facial areas. Book a consultation for a consultation on treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.
What is involved in the procedure?
The first step is to have a consultation for anti-wrinkle injections. The procedure is a simple non-surgical process involving a few tiny injections and there’s no recovery time. No anaesthesia is required and normal activity can resume almost immediately. A small amount of toxin is injected precisely into specific locations in the muscles. I will also take photographs before and after the treatment.
Will I feel numb?
No. There is no sensation change to the skin. Some patients describe a sensation of tightening. It is recommended not to touch the treated areas for a minimum of 4 hours.
Will I look natural?
Yes. My knowledge, experience and training allows me to keep results natural. I minimise any loss of natural facial expression by injecting specific muscles responsible for wrinkling only. I will design your treatment plan specific to your needs. The ‘frozen, expressionless’ look that is undesirable for many is a sign of inexperience and over treatment. This is where experience and knowledge counts and I have many years of expertise. I assist in the training of fellow medical professionals in the techniques that enable the natural effect to be achieved.
What will happen to my lines if I choose not to continue with treatments in the future?
Nothing. Facial muscles will continue to move in the same way that they did before, and moderate-severe lines will gradually look like they did before treatment. The effects of ageing will continue with time as normal, but won’t look any worse if the decision is made not to have further treatment.
Is it true that Botulinum Toxin treatment lasts longer the more you have it done?
Yes, for most people. Regular treatments initially every 3-4 months then the muscles will not work as hard as before. Thus, longer periods can be taken between re-treatment and have less need for treatment eventually in the future.
Can I have injections if I have a cold?
Yes, a cold will not affect the results of the injections, nor will the injections have adverse effects on a cold.
Can anyone inject me?
No. It is extremely important to do research. Since Botulinum Toxin treatment is becoming more popular and in demand, more and more non-medical therapists are offering treatment and so it is vitally important to check the credentials of the treatment provider to ensure that they are:

  • suitably qualified medical professional with a high standard of training from a recognised training institute
  • have professional/cosmetic insurance
  • have a thorough knowledge of the face and neck
  • have an experience of injecting
  • have a sterile and private treatment room
  • offer you a full consultation before treatment
  • can demonstrate before and after photographs of their results
Are there any major side effects?
No, side effects are rare. There can be slight bruising at injection sites and some have reported to have headaches and slight nausea after treatment. Very rarely, there can be temporary drooping of the eyebrow or upper lid but precise and experienced injection technique alongside consideration of after care instructions given reduce the chances of this occurring. In the rare instance that this does occur, since Botulinum toxin is reversible, the effects are temporary and last for only a couple of weeks.
