FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do Line Softening Injections work?
A tiny amount of Botulinum A is injected into the facial muscles causing temporary relaxing of the muscle.
This helps dramatically reduce the appearance fine lines and wrinkles PLUS prevents new ones forming.
How long does it last?
Around 2-4 months on average. I recommend having treatment every 3 months for the first year.
How long does it take to work?
Usually around 3 - 10 days.
How much will I need?
Everyone is different and it depends on how strong your facial muscles are (not on how deep your lines may be). I start you on an average dose that works well for most people. After the first treatment we can decide if you need a little less, or more, going forward.
Does it hurt?
It can feel a little stingy in some areas, but most people find any pain minimal.
Line Softening Injections and
A small amount of botulinum toxin (Xeomin) is injected just under the skin to temporarily stop the movement of some facial muscles.
It is commonly used for softening the vertical frown line between the eyes, horizontal lines across the forehead, crows feet at the outer corners of the eyes.
Other areas commonly treated are bunny lines on the nose, a small amount in the chin to reduce a dimply appearance, and in the lower face to prevent a downturned (frowny) mouth.
You will notice smoother skin and less lines in just a few days after your first treatment. The results last 2-4 months on average.
I recommend this treatment to soften existing deeper lines, and as a preventative as soon as you notice fine lines appearing.
The Lip Flip is a very popular treatment.
A tiny amount of Xeomin is injected just above the top lip. The creates a subtle pout and reduces the lip rolling under when smiling and talking.
Collagen Inducing Microneedling
Micro-needling encourages the body’s own natural response to healing. A sterile roller with tiny micro needles makes tiny pin pricks when passed over the skin. This causes skin cells to make new collagen and elastin, which in turn make skin smoother, firmer and more glowing.
Results can be visible within a week of treatment. And your skin will progressively improve over the next few months as the healing process rebuilds your own natural collagen and elastin and replaces your damaged tissue. Optimal improvement is seen six months after your treatment course has finished. 4 treatments in your first year are recommended for best results.
Your skin may be a little red and irritated for a few days but this is minimal and doesn’t require any down time.
I recommend this treatment for everyone that wants to improve overall skin texture and radiance. It is vital to use good skin care products and sunscreen daily when considering this treatment.
