Treatments for wrinkles
We offer various services for wrinkle treatment and prevention of fine lines such as wrinkle relaxing injections. To assess which treatment is suitable for you medically and ethically, book a consultation.
What do wrinkle relaxing injections do?
Wrinkle relaxing injections are an effective way of treating wrinkles by reducing movement of the muscle, therefore also reducing the movement of the skin and helping the lines to soften and fade away.
They can be used to treat crows feet, fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and front of the face. Before any treatment, we'll have a consultation where you will be able to assess which treatment is suitable for you, ethically and medically.
When should I start to see results?
Improvements should be seen within 2 to 4 days.
How long do wrinkle relaxing injections last?
Results tend to last between 3 to 4 months. After about 8 weeks, you will begin to see movement return.
How often should I get wrinkle relaxing injections?
It is not recommended to receive wrinkle treatment again until at least 3 months have passed. Make sure to chat to us so we can find the best treatment for you!
How do I take care of my skin afterwards?
In the hours following your wrinkle treatment, make sure to keep the target muscles active (try frowning, squinting and raising your eyebrows) and avoid any extreme temperatures. Likewise, vigorous exercise, lying down or leaning should be avoided for the next 4 to 6 hours. We'll provide you with an aftercare package, complete with instructions on what to do.
Are wrinkle relaxing injections the same as Botox?
Yes! Botox has become popularised as the term for Botulinum Toxin (what makes up wrinkle relaxing injections) by the brand behind it. Here at Alpha Aesthetics, we use Bocouture.
