Fine Lines & Wrinkles are a natural process that starts at around the age of 25 and they become more deeper and visible as we get older. There are many factors that contribute to a person’s wrinkles but there is only one way to treat them and that is by using Anti Wrinkle Injections.
What Is Anti-Wrinkle Injections? It is when a toxin is injected in to the muscle to relax the muscle and prevent it from contracting. The toxin blocks certain chemical signals from the nerves to muscles which overall contract the muscles. With no muscles contracting there will be no dynamic wrinkles forming, giving the skin a smoothed out appearance.
There are actually three types of wrinkles, all are treated in different ways. We have dynamic wrinkles, static wrinkles and wrinkle folds. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contraction of muscles that are attached to the overlying skin. Each muscle contraction causes the skin to bunch together, forming lines between the bulk of the muscle. Static wrinkles are caused by damage to the skin from sun, smoking, genetics, poor nutrition, or from prolonged dynamic wrinkling

Smooth out your wrinkles
Anti-Wrinkle Injectables work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle. The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative measure.
Patch Testing Requirement’s
You do not need a patch test for this treatment however anti wrinkle injections are a prescription only medication which means you will need to be prescribed the toxin each time you would like to have it done.

Things to Avoid
- Avoid taking a nap or any activity that causes you to bend over for example downwards dog in yogo for the next 4 hours, this will stop the toxin from spreading to other areas.
- Avoid touching the area, applying make or skin care products for the next 24 hours.
- Avoid rubbing or
- Avoid steam rooms, saunas, chlorine pools and intensive exercise for one week +.
- Under no circumstances should you “pick” at blisters or scabs. These should be allowed to heal and flake away naturally. (This will prevent scaring)
- Avoid exposing the treated area from strong sunlight for 30 days or to use a sun protective cream (at least SP30) (This prevents over treating the skin’s natural melanin)
Try to keep the area clean and dry but avoid very hot baths and showers. Use warm water and pat dry – do not rub with towel.
If slight discoloured (honey coloured) oozing of the treated area then I recommend applying antiseptic cream. If after 2-3 days there is still honey coloured pus then you must visit your G.P for antibiotic treatment.
- If you become pregnant or change medication you must immediately tell me before continuing with new treatments.
- A nice warm welcome and a full consultation form to be filled out followed by a patch test of each colour your tattoo displays.
- To return back in 4 – 6 weeks for a skin examination and hopefully your first treatment.
A clean and sanitises shop with fully sanitise hands, machinery and instruments. For me to wear a mask, apron and single use medical grade disposable gloves when needed to.
personal privacy to get undressed and dressed if needed to.
To get you comfortably on the cosmetic bed or chair to start our treatment.
Photos of your tattoo to be taken before, during and after treatment. This is always shared with you for us to track your removal process.
A quick cleanse using antibacterial wipes.
To proceed with the laser process allowing time to stop and start and to continue on your pace.
Regular check in’s by me to see how your sensitivity and comfortability is doing and a stress ball to be available to use during the process.
- During the lasering process you will feel slight heat or elastic band being flick against your skin sensation.
- Your skin will possible swell, itch and have some pin point bleeding.
- After the treatment is done a full application of Aloe Vera gel will be applied followed by a breathable sterile dressing if needed.
- Once we have finished we can move to reception area and discuss aftercare, payment and your follow up appointment – if you wish to re-book.
If this is your first laser treatment you will receive a text message or phone call 3 days and 3 week later to see how your skin is getting on.
- After your laser treatment your skin will feel sensitive to touch. This will last for around 1 – 7 days.
- Your skin could possible bruise and blister.
- Your skin will start scabbing and feeling itchy for around 1 – 14 days.
- After around 14 – 21 days your skin will start to heal and appear possible white and shinny. (this is normally gone by the time of your next appointment)
- Apply numbing creams before your treatment to reduce the discomfort, especially with large tattoo’s. My favourite numbing cream is T.K.T.X – Green 40%.
- A cold compress will help reduce any swelling and take the “sting” out of the treated area.
- The more you apply your aftercare creams the better the outcome.
- Drink plenty of water, this will help the body remove the ink.
- Start to rub the aftercare creams in with pressure, this will help break down the ink. (only when the skin has stop scabbing)
- If you struggle to tolerate the sensation then apply numbing creams.
- Always plan your remove day around your lifestyle, if your a active person get your gym/work stuff down before your appointment or clients that want to relax after their treatment then plan for a weekend or a time frame when your off etc..
