Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in this country. These injections are most commonly used to treat the frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Tiny amounts of a nerve toxin are injected into the specific muscles which cause the lines. The toxin will block the signals transmitted by the nerve to the muscle, and thereby stopping to contract. Hence the lines will disappear. The procedure has gained popularity due to simplicity of the treatment, and the fast immediate results.
Being a prescription drug, toxin injections should be performed only by professionals with special training. With our very own on-site fully qualified medical doctor Dr Biju Philip, you know you’ll be in excellent hands if you are considering any treatments for facial enhancement. Dr Philip is an Anaesthetist working at West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St. Edmunds; and has more than 10 years experience with use of toxin for wrinkle reduction.
The full effects of toxin injections can be seen in 5-7 days. Results may vary between individuals, depending on the severity of wrinkles and the strength of muscles treated. The results last from three to six months, after which most patients gradually return to their former state. Normally, the treatment should be repeated every 3-4 months.
Toxin injections are very safe when performed by medical professionals and we would always recommend you have a facial aesthetic consultation before going ahead with any facial enhancements or non-surgical procedures. A consultation allows you to discuss fully with Dr Philip areas you would like to improve and the results you can expect to see.
We do not offer the treatment to anybody below 18 years age. If you are pregnant, or breast feeding, we will not be able to offer the treatment.
