Anti-ageing treatment cost
A consultation with one of our clinicians is the first step
If you are considering an anti-ageing injections treatment or would like to find out more about the process, give our customer service team a call to arrange your free of charge consultation with one of our professionals.
SkinViva clinicians are all medically qualified, fully trained in aesthetics and highly experienced in the administration of anti-ageing injections. We offer a variety of treatment options for improving the signs of facial ageing. Our dedicated team of aesthetic medical professionals are committed to ensuring that our clients are fully informed and absolutely ready, before going ahead with treatment.
Any questions or concerns are addressed in detail during the consultation process and our clients are given as much time as they need to decide whether a treatment is right for them, even if that means not going ahead at all sometimes. Equally, our clinicians may refuse to offer treatment if they deem it not in the client’s best interest. We’ll give open and honest advice.
See results in our gallery below. You’ll find more pictures on our before and after photos page.
Why might a clinician recommend anti-ageing injections?
Anti-ageing injections are used in the treatment of several areas including: the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet, as well as upper lip lines. We can also treat the deep lines, creases and sagging which are caused by loss of volume.
They may recommend dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, or BOTOX® anti-wrinkle injections (botulinum toxin). Botulinum toxin is a prescription drug and must be prescribed by a qualified prescriber. It should administered by a clinician who is trained to perform the procedure safely.
If you are considering anti-ageing treatment, you must ensure that you only do so after a proper consultation with someone who is qualified.
You should make sure that you have been made aware of all the alternative treatment options and all the relevant facts, including potential risks and complications, before proceeding with the treatment.

The science bit is that although the BOTOX® leaves your body naturally after around 48 hours, the effect of the treatment is to trim the receptors of the muscles that have been injected.
These receptors, which receive messages from the brain telling the muscle to move gradually grow back over a period of several months. 'Trimmed' receptors mean the resulting effect is wrinkles and lines have been temporarily reduced as a result of less movement from the corresponding muscle.
No. SkinViva uses the smallest needles on the market, so few customers experience even mild discomfort. Likewise, unlike some other operators, our clinicians are trained to use a high turnover of needles per client, so bruising is minimised.
If you prefer, ice or local anaesthetic cream can be applied to minimise sensation.
As BOTOX® has no recovery time, there is little aftercare required. Immediately following treatment, you can enhance its effects by gently moving the treated area with mild facial exercises.
For the first 2 hours after treatment, it’s important not to rub the affected areas. For the succeeding 24 hours, don’t engage in any vigorous exercise, drink alcohol or experience prolonged sun exposure – whether natural or artificial.
BOTOX® is broken down by the body during the first 48 hours of treatment, so does not accumulate in your system. Improved effects are visible with multiple treatments because the muscle is already relaxed from the previous session so your skin is creasing less and the wrinkles are not being reinforced.
Some, but most are related to the actual act of injecting the skin, not the product itself. These include: minor redness or swelling around the injection site (which vanishes within 1-2hrs), minor bruising on occasions, headaches and a very small risk of infection around the entry point. In very rare cases, clients can experience a temporary droop of the eyelid.
Women who are pregnant and/or breast-feeding, people with neurological diseases such as Myasthenia Gravis and Parkinson’s Disease, consumers of certain anti-biotics (namely Erythromycin) and those using blood-thinning medications including Warfarin or Heparin.
Your clinician will discuss these with you at your consultation.
We have a large male patient group which is ever growing. Anatomically BOTOX® is just as suitable as an anti-wrinkle treatment for guys as it is for ladies and just as a effective.
Typically, men sometimes can have stronger muscles in the face than women which tends to mean a slightly higher dose is required to give the look you want. We do charge an extra £10 for a higher male supplement, as the muscles in the upper face are stronger in males.
There should be at least a two week gap between a BOTOX® treatment and having semi permanent make up treatment on your eye-brows. This is because the BOTOX® can move the position of your eye-brows temporarily.
Yes you can. If you are having BOTOX® treatment THEN another treatment, you must leave it 48 hours. If you had another treatment and then you wanted BOTOX®, you would have to wait 2 weeks before having your BOTOX® treatment.
The effects of BOTOX® treatment are not seen immediately. You should start to notice a difference about 3-7 days after your appointment and the treatment will be at its maximum at day 14. We will send you a text message after 14 days to check how your treatment is looking. If you would like an adjustment to your BOTOX®, you’re welcome to book back in to be seen within the first month after your initial treatment and this will be free of charge.
Not necessarily. Many people do not need to come back in for an adjustment. It is a personal choice, not a clinical necessity. We will send you a text message after 14 days to check how your treatment is looking. If you would like an adjustment to your BOTOX®, you’re welcome to book back in to be seen within the first month after your initial treatment.
