As Qualified Medical Professionals, the team at Dermaesthetics Clinic use Botulinum Toxin to reduce wrinkles, this has the added benefit of reducing the appearance of fine lines in the face. Treatments are non-invasive and are a great alternative to surgery. For optimal results, continued treatments are required.
We at Dermaesthetics Clinic find that Anti-wrinkle injections work very well in combination with Dermal Fillers. A full Aesthetic consultation with a member of the medical team is required prior to treatment so that we can ensure you are suitable for treatment. By placing small amounts of Botulinum toxin in the specific targeted muscle fibre, Botox inhibits the muscles from contracting, this has the effect of lessening the amount of fine lines produced on the skin’s surface.We are also able to help bring migraines and hyperhidrosis under a more manageable level.
We all develop wrinkles at some point in our life. At Dermaesthetics Clinic we offer a non-surgical solution to this problem.

Injection of Botulinum Toxin for wrinkle reduction does unfortunately have some potential side-effects. They are typically minor in nature, and do not persist. The most common issues include minor bruising at the injection sites, flu-like symptoms, and some initial injection discomfort. Mild headache can be eased with simple paracetamol.
Initial results start at day 4-5 post injection but the full optimum result typically is seen at 2 weeks. At 2 weeks we offer a review appointment.
Injection of Botulinum Toxin for wrinkle reduction will last commonly for 3-4 months. Results do vary between individuals. After 4 months, we at Dermaesthetics Clinic offer re-treatment at 4 months.
