What are wrinkle reducing injections?
They are injections, which relax the muscles and reduce the appearances of lines and wrinkles. They can only be given after a face to face consultation with a medically qualified prescriber. Various different treatments are available.
How qualified are you?
415 is staffed by an Independent Nurse Presciber and a fully qualified Registered General Nurse.
I have expectations on how I will look after treatment.
During the consultation process we will also make sure that you are fully aware if the treatment will meet your expectations, and make a full assessment of your face, including any asymmetry issues.
Once I’m seen, can I get treated straight away?
No. A £50 deposit is to be paid, which is used to secure your treatment and you will be treated within a few days.
How much will it cost?
If you wish to proceed, then a £50 non-refundable deposit is required.
- Three areas are FROM £199.
Which areas can be treated?
The three main areas are:
- Crow’s feet (A)
- The forehead (B)
- The glabellar region (frown) (C).
Do I need to avoid any food or drink before treatment?
Before treatment you should avoid aspirin, high doses of Vitamin E and omega 3 for 7 days if possible.And no alcohol prior to treatment
What about makeup?
This will be have to cleansed off prior to treatment and not reapplied afterwards for at least 4 to 6 hours.
Does it hurt?
Not really. The needle is the smallest and finest gauge available. There may be a little local stinging, but that’s it.
What about any bad after effects after treatment?
Wrinkle Reducing Treatment is very safe and the various brands are widely tested. Allergic reactions are rare, but if you do have a history of reactions, then we must be informed. Afterwards, you may experience mild headaches soreness and other localised symptoms such as pain at the injection site and slight bleeds.
Will my face be improved immediately?
Relaxation of the treated areas begins 24 – 72 hours after treatment. Full relaxation occurs two weeks later.
You will be invited to a follow up after two weeks.
Anything I should avoid after treatment?
Do not lie down, or do any vigourous exercise for around 6 hours after treatment. Do not have a steam/sauna and drink alcohol for 6 hours after.
Can I drive after?
Of course. It’s a very safe treatment. Nothing vigourous though.
Any recommendations after treatment?
You can exercise muscles by relaxing and contracting the treated area as this helps the toxin reach the target muscle. Do NOT touch the areas.
How long does it last?
Wrinkles are reduced for 3 to 4 months, but it’s very individual.
If I’m not happy with it?
On the initial assessment, if we can’t improve or meet your expectations, then we won’t treat you. However, we will top up any areas which we think can be improved during the aftercare treatment. However, we cannot overdose the area.
