Anti-ageing Injections

Anti-ageing injections can be used to temporarily lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.

Why choose anti-ageing injections?

The treatment is often used to address the forehead, crow’s feet and the lines that develop around the nose, mouth, and lips.  It can also be used to address an ‘orange peel’ chin, vertical neck bands and gummy smiles.

Gone are the days of the surprised, overdone look. Dr. Georgiana focuses on creating natural results that make the face appear fresh and revived.

“I feel so much more refreshed and confident now” I was 25 when I decided to start having treatments. I knew it was only a matter of time till I started to get fine lines so decided to start having anti-wrinkle injections as a prevention treatment. I had been to a couple of other companies but the lady who does my eyebrows recommended that I start going to Dr Georgiana. I’m so glad I took her advice. As soon as I got in touch with her, she was so helpful and friendly, but still clinical and professional. I had an eyebrow lift and jawline work and the results are so natural."

“My results were really subtle, definitely made me look fresher, I really can’t recom-mend her enough” I felt like I needed a boost as I was looking a little tired and feeling like I had aged. I had recently had a baby and needed to get myself back! Prior to treatment, I was apprehensive about fillers as you do hear some horror stories. Dr Georgiana was friendly and fully explained the whole procedure and made me feel very confident at putting my face in her hands. I am so pleased with my new natural looking lips and look so much younger after my muscle relaxing injections to my strong frown and crow’s feet wrinkles."

“I’m so happy with the results, I am no longer suffer with headaches or any jaw pain anymore. I had suffered with a lot of pain in my jaw and constant headaches for years due to my clenching habit in my sleep. I was referred by my dentist to see Dr Georgiana after having a splint fitted first. Dr Georgiana was so reassuring and patient with me. She was very professional, and I felt very confident in her hands. She was highly skilled and used muscle relaxing injections to help me. My symptoms have significantly reduced and its completely life changing. I could not recommend her highly enough!”

How long does it take to work?

Improvements are visible within 2-5 days and you’ll see the optimal results after about 14 days.

Since the results are gradual, people will often notice that you look fresher and more youthful but won’t know why.

How long does it last?

The effects typically last between 3-4 months but may vary from patient to patient.

If you need an adjustment, you’re welcome to book back in from 2-3 weeks after your initial treatment.

How do I maintain and optimise the results?

The best results generally come from repeating full treatment every 12-16 weeks.

This means that the facial muscles are already relaxed from the previous session, so your skin is creasing less, and the wrinkles are not being reinforced. Longer intervals are less effective because facial muscles tend to regain their original size and strength.

What does the treatment entail?

This is a simple procedure which takes about 30 minutes.

You must have a consultation prior to each treatment, even if you’ve been many times before. After making sure you are comfortable, the procedure generally involves 4-6 carefully placed injections per area of treatment.

There is no need for any anaesthetic. We use very fine needles and even mild discomfort is uncommon. If you prefer, ice or numbing cream can be applied to minimise the sensation.

What aftercare is involved?

The treatment has minimal recovery time and there is very little aftercare required. Immediately following treatment, you can enhance its effects by gently moving the treated area with mild facial exercises. However, for the first two hours after treatment, it’s important not to rub the affected areas.

Don’t engage in any vigorous exercise, drink alcohol, expose yourself to the sun (artificial or natural) or take hot baths and showers for up to 24 hours after treatment.

How does the treatment work?

Anti-ageing injections (Botulinum Toxin Type A) relax the muscle that causes skin to crease, making wrinkles fade or disappear altogether. It’s a simple and popular treatment.

In medical terms this is called selective muscle denervation. Nerve and muscle meet at what is known as the neuromuscular junction. Before treatment, the nerve sends a signal to the muscle to request movement. After the treatment, the nerve continues to work as normal, but the muscle remains still.

Over 3-5 months, the effect gradually wears off and the muscle is able to move again.

Who should avoid this treatment?

Pregnant and breastfeeding mums should not have treatment. Also, people with neurological diseases such as Myasthenia Gravis and Parkinson’s Disease, consumers of certain antibiotics (namely Erythromycin) and those using blood-thinning medications including Warfarin or Heparin.

Are there any side effects?

You may experience some minor redness or mild swelling, but this should subside very quickly. Minor bruising does happen on occasions. There is a risk of a temporary drop of the eyelid when treating the frown area, but this is rare.

What about other treatments?

You need to be careful with semi-permanent make-up treatment on your eyebrows and lips. This is because anti-aging injections can move the position of your eyebrows and lips temporarily. Please leave at least a 2 week gap between the two treatments.

You should also leave 2 weeks before having other treatments such as glycolic peels, facials, micro needling.
