Hyperhidrosis

Injections are also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis – find out more here


Migraines

This treatment is also licensed as a treatment for chronic and severe migraine in July 2010, by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). About one in ten migraine patients have symptoms that are considered as sufficiently chronic and severe – because they last for four hours or more on at least 15 days a month – to qualify to receive this treatment.

Injections have not been shown to be effective for any other headache type, such as episodic migraine, tension-type headaches or cluster headaches.

The most common symptoms of a migraine attack include throbbing headache, sensitivity to light and noise, nausea (feeling sick), vomiting (being sick) and lethargy (lack of energy).  In some people, changes in the cortex area of the brain cause changes in their sight, such as dark spots, coloured spots, sparkles or ‘stars’, and zigzag lines. Numbness or tingling, weakness, and dizziness or vertigo (the feeling of everything spinning) can also happen. Speech and hearing can also be disturbed, and sufferers have reported memory changes, feelings of fear and confusion, and more rarely, partial paralysis or fainting.

Your Anti Wrinkle Injections questions answered

How do anti-wrinkle injections work? Your lines and wrinkles form over time as the result of constant muscle activity. Botulinum Toxin is injected directly into the muscles and works by temporarily blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; in two weeks or less this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.

What happens during my treatment? During your treatment, a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. After a full medical consultation with our Doctor, your treatment is usually carried out in about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. You will see an improvement within two weeks and can last up to 4 to 5 months. Results may vary, simply because we are all individuals.

When will I see results from this treatment? Within 7 to 10 days you may see a marked improvement, however your lines will continue to improve, with the optimal effect being at two weeks. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.

How long do Wrinkle relaxing injections last? Results from your treatment with anti-wrinkle injections can last for up to 3 to 4 months, subject to your individual metabolism, lifestyle, smoking and sun exposure.

Who should administer anti-wrinkle injections? Only experienced and insured healthcare professionals who are Doctors, Dentists and Nurse Prescribers can administer wrinkle relaxing injections. Here at Skin Perfection your injectable treatment will only be carried out by a healthcare professional.

Is treatment with anti-wrinkle injections painful? Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, your practitioner may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anaesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people are in and out of the clinic without downtime following treatment. Usually numbing the area is not needed as the procedure is so fast.

Who is not suitable for a anti-wrinkle injections treatment? Anti-wrinkle injections should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation. Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects. Patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding are not able to have any injectable treatment.

Will my facial expressions continue to look natural? Although the results are visible, a treatment with anti-wrinkle injections will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you have 'had work done'. The muscle activity that causes your lines is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows. Your skin will simply look fresher and more youthful, not like somebody else.

What will happen to my lines if I choose not to continue treatments? If you do decide not to continue with your treatment, then your lines and wrinkles will gradually look like they did before treatment.

Are anti-wrinkle injections affordable? When considering different medical cosmetic options for your individual needs, Anti-wrinkle injections are really quite affordable. Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the low-entry-cost facial aesthetic procedures available today. Like other appearance-related investments, the cost must be weighed relative to your expectations. Please consult your Skin Perfection doctor at our London clinic for more information.

Are anti-wrinkle injections dangerous? Anti-wrinkle injections treatments have been used safely and effectively for over 30 years to treat many eye and neurological conditions. These include cerebral palsy in children and many other medical indications – often using very high dosages, all with no long-term side effects recorded. Anti-wrinkle injections has been used for cosmetic purposes successfully for many years. It is licensed in 13 countries for cosmetic use and has Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for over 13 years, which is extremely difficult to achieve.

Can anti-wrinkle injections build up in the body? When injected, the product is attracted to the nerve endings and is then metabolised and leaves the body completely within 21 days of administration. It is the result and effect of the treatment that lasts 3 to 4 months on average. It is therefore not possible to have a build-up of the product.

Will my eyes or eyebrows droop? The chance of this happening to a patient is about 1 in 2,000. There is evidence to suggest that this may be as a result of the patient massaging or pushing the area around within the first four days after treatment. If the eye does droop it will last no longer than 3 weeks and will usually correct itself. We always offer a free of charge two-week review, so if you are concerned that this has occurred, then please speak to your Skin Perfection Doctor.

Will it freeze or paralyse my face? The treatment will have the effect of relaxing the treated muscle allowing the lines to re-hydrate and smooth away. You will still be able to make facial expressions. However, when your face it at rest the line will be greatly improved if not removed. The area feels exactly the same for the majority of patients although a small percentage do report a very slight restricted feeling in the area on the 2nd to 4th day after treatment, but usually you then return back to your normal feeling.

Can creams that claim to contain Botulinum Toxin There has been an explosion of inaccurate claims suggesting that creams produce results as well as Botox®. Botox® needs to be delivered by injection into the muscles that are producing lines and work by temporarily relaxing the muscles. Creams quite simply cannot do this!

Wrinkle relaxing injections are FDA-approved, but what does that really mean? In the United States, prescription drugs are required to undergo rigorous laboratory, animal, and human clinical testing before they can be put on the market. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviews the results of these studies to verify the identity, potency, purity, and stability of the ‘ingredients’ and demonstrate that the drug is safe and effective for its intended use. Botulinum Toxin received FDA approval in 2002 and is available by prescription only.

    I had my first session of laser hair removal today. I was anxious but Lauren B was very informative, professional and patient. I even noticed results from my patch test. The clinic is sparkling clean and clinically spotless. They are fully informed and professionally trained and I’m looking forward to the rest of my treatments. …
