When you look in the mirror are you worried about your frown lines, forehead lines or crows feet? Then wrinkle reduction could your be your perfect solution to getting the fresh, rejuvenated look you want. At Dr Charlotte Aesthetics we aim to give you a subtle but highly effective treatment to soften and smooth the lines you don’t like rather than eliminate them. You still retain your beautiful, natural expression so you can still smile or frown … just without the deep lines.
Wrinkles appear for a variety of reasons, loss of elasticity as you age, smoking, sun damage, and of course frowning, squinting and smiling.
Using a fine needle, an injection of botulinum toxin is used to relax the facial the facial muscles, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Botulinum toxin products such as Azzalure and Botox have been used safely and effectively for many years. It is suitable for men and women but would not be given if you were pregnant or breastfeeding.
The procedure is quick with minimal discomfort. Dr Charlotte will apply ice packs prior to the injection so local anaesthetic is not required. There may be some redness, slight bruising or swelling at the injection site but this usually disappears very quickly.
Within 2 to 4 days you will start to notice the effects and these will continue to develop and improve over the next 2 weeks. We will arrange a review appointment with Dr Charlotte so we can assess together whether any adjustments or modifications are required to achieve the optimum result.
The results typically last for 3 to 6 months and with regular treatment you can reduce the development of further lines.
