Wrinkle relaxing injections can be used to temporarily lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.

What happens during the consultation?

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 a range of anti-ageing injection products and treatments. 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.

    Why choose anti-ageing injections?

    Why might a clinician recommend wrinkle relaxing injections?

    Your clinician may recommend anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers, depending on their assessment of your skin and your treatment goals. .

    Anti-wrinkle injections 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 use dermal fillers to treat the deep lines, creases and sagging which are caused by loss of volume.

    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.

    Got a Question?

    Do I need an initial consultation before my BOTOX® treatment?
    Yes, all clients must have a consultation prior to treatment, even if you've been many times before. Our clinician will fully review your concerns and advise on the most appropriate treatment.

    We offer dermal fillers as well as BOTOX® treatment and will give honest advice on the best approach for you.
    What is BOTOX® and how does it work?
    When BOTOX® is injected into a muscle it activates a process called selective muscle denervation.

    This is when the neuromuscular junction – where the nerve and muscle meet – has its receptors blocked from acetylcholine: the chemical which forces the muscle to contract.

    Therefore, even though the nerve continues to send a signal which requests movement, the tissue does not receive the instruction and the muscle remains still.

    BOTOX® injections relax the muscle that causes skin to crease, making wrinkles fade or disappear altogether.

    Over 3-5 months, the muscle gradually grows new receptors and is able to contract again.

    BOTOX® is most effective in the correction of lines which are formed from muscle contractions alone. Because the underlying muscle doesn’t move, the skin above it no longer creases.

    Thus, the effects of BOTOX® are most noticeable in frown and laughter lines.

    BOTOX® does not remove wrinkles which are permanently engraved in the skin, regardless of muscle movement, although it may soften them.
    How long does BOTOX® stay in my body?
    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.
    What areas can BOTOX® treat?
    Mostly, the top half of face where wrinkles are deepened by smiling and frowning.

    However, BOTOX® also corrects crow’s feet, forehead lines, vertical neck bands, grooves above the upper lip and gummy smiles.
    How soon will I see the results of BOTOX® ?
    Your initial results will appear within 2-5 days and continue to improve for up to 14 days, when the results will peak.

    With SkinViva, we contact you 14 days after your treatment to determine if you require a free top-up injection. If necessary, we'll book you in whenever you're free for a follow up.
    How long does BOTOX® last?
    Usually 3-4 months. In some cases, 6 months.
    Does BOTOX® hurt?
    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.
    What’s the difference between BOTOX® and dermal fillers?
    BOTOX® is used to relax wrinkles in the upper half of the face.

    Dermal fillers plump areas of lost volume, such as nose-to-mouth lines, or to enhance lips.
    How many injections will I need?
    If you're having BOTOX®, this generally involves 4-6 carefully placed injections per area of treatment.
    How long will the process take?
    Usually, 10 minutes – but new customers generally require a 45-minute appointment.
    How much will BOTOX® cost?
    BOTOX® is charged per muscle group – i.e. each individual area requiring treatment. If you need an immediate top-up for the same injection, it is free of charge.
    Will BOTOX® make me look frozen?
    No. SkinViva aesthetic medical professionals are all trained to preserve and maintain eyebrow movement, which is the key to creating natural expressions.
    Is BOTOX® safe?
    Yes, when a qualified Clinician administers it. Cosmetic doses of BOTOX® are minuscule and over 450,000 UK procedures are performed each year. Allergic reactions are extremely rare.
    What do I need to consider after the BOTOX® treatment?
    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.
    Where does the BOTOX® go after the results fade?
    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.
    When the results from BOTOX® fade, will my wrinkles be worse than they were before?
    No. Your face simply returns to how it was prior to treatment.
    Are there any side effects with BOTOX®?
    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.

    Who should avoid BOTOX®?
    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.
    Is BOTOX® suitable for men?
    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.
    Will my family and friends know I've had BOTOX®?
    Most often those that know you notice you look fresher, but don't specifically know why.

    Perhaps those who have had a BOTOX® treatment themselves and are particularly observant may have an inkling.
    Can I fly after treatment?
    Yes, there is no problem with flying after having BOTOX® treatment.
    Can I go in the sun or use sunbeds after BOTOX® treatment?
    You should avoid heat for 24 hours. This includes the sun, sunbeds and hot baths and showers.
    If I want semi-permanent make up would I have BOTOX® before or after treatment?
    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.
    Can I drink alcohol after BOTOX® treatment?
    For the following 24 hours after you receive BOTOX® treatment, you must not drink alcohol. After 24 hours, it is fine to drink Alcohol.
    Can I have BOTOX® if I am having other treatments? Such as glycolic peels, facials, dermaroller?
    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.
    Can I go running after my BOTOX® treatment?
    No, you must wait until 24 hours after your BOTOX® treatment before you can go running or do any other form of strenuous exercise.
    How long do I have to wait between treatments?
    You need to wait a minimum of 12 weeks between full treatment doses.
    How long after treatment can I have a follow up?
    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. 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.
    Do I need a follow up appointment?
    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.
