Anti Wrinkle Injections
Fighting the signs of aging skin can be difficult. As we age our skin loses elasticity and combined with damage from the sun sometimes the way to get back the smooth skin we want is anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle treatments such as Botox are a popular way to smooth out lines around the eyes, mouth and on the forehead.
Performed by highly qualified and trained medical professionals, our anti-wrinkle treatments are prescription only medication. Since our anti-wrinkle injections are a prescription medication you will not see advertisements for them or before and after photos of the treatment. The benefits and trustworthiness of our anti-wrinkle treatment will not be found in promotional materials but rather in the in-depth knowledge of our medical professionals, our reputable partners and the real world results and feedback of our clients.
Magari Clinics deploy the highest standards in all our work and we strive to address all our anti-wrinkle treatment clients’ questions in the preliminary consultation. In a consultation we discuss everything required for us to offer you the best possible service including medical history. There is also a consultation required so that we can order your product from one of our reputable UK based pharmacies as the anti-wrinkle treatment is a prescription treatment.
We are based in Yarm and offer anti-wrinkle injections to Yarm and the surrounding area including Stockton and Ingleby Barwick. If you have any questions please explore our FAQs below were we cover the most common queries in detail.
The product used is a prescription-only medication and can’t be advertised by law, which is why you won’t see the name of the product on this website nor any ‘before and after’ photos.
Very small amounts of this drug are placed in to the muscles with a very fine needle, at very specific points. Over the course of 2 weeks, the drug slowly develops a barrier, blocking the signals from your brain from getting through. It doesn’t change your muscle; it just stops it from moving. It helps to stop you from creating lines when you frown, squint or raise your eyes brows on the upper face and can also be used in the lower face. For example, for the prevention of ‘bunny lines’ caused when you ‘scrunch-up’ your nose. It can also be used to treat a ‘sad’/down-turned mouth or to relax the muscles in your chin to prevent a ‘pebble effect’. Another common lower face treatment is for a ‘gummy smile’ to relax the muscles which pull up your upper lip. For some people, they feel that this results in too much of their gums being on show when they smile.
Another popular treatment involves placing this product in to your masseter muscles. People often use this treatment to slim down a ‘square jaw’ or to relax this muscle to prevent habits like jaw-clenching or teeth-grinding.
Also, if you suffer from excess sweating under your arms (known as ‘hyperhidrosis’) then the product can also be placed directly in to the area to stop the sweating.
Over the course of around 12 weeks (or up to 6 months for hyperhidrosis treatments), the signals from your brain will eventually get back through and reconnect with the muscles where full movement will return although how long it lasts really depends on the individual. Metabolism, lifestyle factors, hormones, level of exercise, medications and so on all effect the longevity of this treatment.
Most people will find that, if they keep on top of this treatment every 12 weeks, they do eventually get longer out of it as the body becomes accustomed.
No treatment is 100% safe but this is generally considered to be a very straight forward procedure with minimal down time and minimal risk when in the hands of a qualified professional.
It is not necessary and would be ineffective with this treatment.
Everyone’s pain thresholds are completely different but this is generally well-tolerated. Some say it doesn’t hurt at all and others report a slight ‘stinging’ sensation at certain points.
If you have ever had an anaphylactic reaction to anything (IE, experiencing chest pains, difficulty breathing, swollen mouth/tongue etc) then we would need to discuss this further during your consultation. Depending on the history of your allergy, it is likely that we could proceed with caution. The procedure is a localised one and the risk of allergy is very low.
The most likely side-effects that you’re going to experience are some bruising and potentially a temporary headache. Other, less likely side-effects would be discussed during your consultation.
