Botox & Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Botox and Anti-Wrinkle in Southwold
Anti-wrinkle treatments are effective in diminishing signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, overall giving a smoother complexion. It is best to start treatment earlier in life from late twenties onwards, as a preventative measure.
Leaving treatment until you have established lines makes them harder to treat and it is not always possible with static lines (those that are there even without movement)
Anti-wrinkle treatments use a type of toxin that is derived from bacteria which is then purified to be safe to administer in small doses. It has been used since the late 1960s with definitive results in treating muscle activity in the face and other areas.
The toxin works by breaking the action between the muscle cell and motor terminal, which is telling us to move our muscles. Eg. Frowning/raising eyebrows etc.
Muscles are only able to contract or pull, this means they have to work in groups and never work alone when carrying out an action. Because of this and having completed advanced Botox training, it is now my standard practice to treat all three areas of the upper face. I will also treat areas of the lower face if needed. This allows for full face rejuvenation for everyone as part of the service, at no extra cost.
AS STANDARD PRACTICE, FOR THE 1 PRICE I OFFER:
Forehead, Frown lines, Crows feet, Downturned mouth, Dimpled chin, Gummy smile, Lip flip, Bunny lines, Perioral rhytides (smokers lines)
I also offer Hyperhydrosis for the treatment of excessive underarm sweating.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive underarm sweating)
Will it be painful?I always use numbing cream prior to treatment and the filler I use also contains Lidocaine which is the numbing agent which works quickly in the area. Some facial areas are more sensitive and these will be numbed with Lidocaine separately.
How can I prepare for the treament?Please avoid blood thinning medication for 7 days before treatment. Do not stop prescribed medication for cardiovascular disease. Do not have any important events planned for 2 weeks incase of bruising. Avoid any aggressive facial treatments including AHA peels, waxing, tweezing or hair removal cream on the area 3 days before treatment. If you are unwell or have any active infection (ear/nose/throat/dental abcess etc) by the time of your apoointment, please rearrange your booking as these can result in delayed complications. Please avoid alcohol & coffee 24 hours prior to treatment as it can heighten the chances of bruising, swelling & bleeding. You can take Arnica pillules in the run up to your appointment to help reduce bruising. Please have something to eat and drink before treatment.
How long does the treatment last?PDO Mono Threads last in the skin around 3-4 months as they are gradually breaking down and being absorbed by the body. The after effects are increased collagen and elastin in the areas that the threads are placed.
What is the aftercare?~To reduce swelling apply a cold compress regularly you can also take an antihistamine. You can carry on your day as normal. ~Please bear in mind threads are extremely likely to noticeably bruise, this bruising can last 4 weeks on some occasions. ~Avoid extreme temperatures of hot & cold for 48hrs. eg. sunbeds/saunas. ~Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours. ~Apply arnica cream 4 times a day, as needed. ~Light makeup may be worn 6 hrs post treatment, but do avoid rubbing/touching the area.
