What is Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment?

At a certain age the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are a fact of life, but with today’s range of professional cosmetic treatments they are no longer inevitable.

With wrinkle relaxing treatment at MediZen, using Botox® cosmetic injections, we can delay and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles so that you look younger for longer.

When Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) is inserted into the muscle, the brain can no longer send a signal via the nerves to tell the muscle to move, as happens when we make a facial expression. This leads the muscle to relax and as it is no longer able to contract, there is less creasing and lining of the skin resulting in new skin having a chance to grow without being repeatedly wrinkled. Skilful treatment with Botox® allows the untreated areas of your face to move as normal and you will still be able to laugh, smile and frown, but with less wrinkling of the skin in the areas treated.

This effect is not permanent, however, but your skin around the area which has been treated will look smooth and less wrinkled and it can last for around 4 - 6 months.

Nefertiti was an Egyptian Queen, famous for her shapely jawline and smooth neck unfortunately, not all of us are quite so lucky! So here at MediZen we use a Botox®-led technique called the Nefertiti Lift to rectify the loss of elasticity and resculpt the jawline. Amongst other reasons, muscles used in facial expression constantly pull at the corners of the jaw, causing the skin below to gradually become loose. We counteract this by relaxing the area to create an upward ‘pull’ that promotes firmer skin and prevents jowls.

Botulinum Toxin does not remove wrinkles indefinitely; it is usually necessary to have a treatment every 4 - 6 months to maintain and improve upon the original results. It has been proven to be quite safe to have Botulinum toxin injections for many years and some of our practitioners have been treated with Botox® since the late 1990s.

As a Botox® clinical trial and training centre, we really know and understand how to use this treatment in the most effective way to achieve natural, subtle, and repeatable wrinkle reduction results for our clients.

Your Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment Experience

Before Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment

Before wrinkle relaxing treatment you will be invited for a consultation with Dr David Eccleston. During your consultation at MediZen, we will assess your skin using our professional 2D and 3D Visia Canfield Analysis system, which evaluates your skin to help us decide the best treatment approach to give you the best results and restore your skin’s youthful appearance. 

We are one of the only clinics in the Birmingham area with access to this unique skin analysis system, which means that we can objectively measure results via a series of skin analysis tools allowing for comparison before and after your wrinkle relaxing treatment using Botox®.

During Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment

Prior to wrinkle relaxing treatment with Botox®, your skin should be clean and make-up free.

Wrinkle relaxing treatment takes places in our state of the art treatment rooms where our practitioner will make sure you are as comfortable as possible in preparation for your treatment.

During Botox®, a very fine needle is used, and most of our clients find that there is only mild and temporary discomfort. Some of our clients choose to have a numbing cream applied to the area to minimise any anticipated discomfort.

The actual treatment only takes a few minutes. Your practitioner’s exact injection technique will depend on the type of results you’re hoping to achieve.

To see wrinkle relaxing treatment using Botox® cosmetic filler being performed by Dr Eccleston at MediZen, see our Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment Videos.

After Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment

After your wrinkle relaxing treatment using Botox®, you may notice tiny lumps where the injection has been administered, which will diminish after an hour or less. The treatment takes between 2 and 7 days to take effect.

Botox® wrinkle relaxing injections do not remove wrinkles indefinitely. Botox® is broken down gradually by your body over time however, results we have achieved at MediZen on our clients have lasted for as long as 6 months. To keep skin looking youthful and smooth, you may have to come back to us for, depending on the area treated, dose used, and how you respond, repeat treatments within 4 - 6 months.

We will continue to monitor your progress and you will be invited back to MediZen so that our practitioner can discuss your post treatment care with you as well as taking an ‘After’ photo with our Visia Digital Skin Analysis System so that you can compare before and after treatment results, objectively.

Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment Side Effects

Because a very fine needle is used, most clients find that there is only mild and temporary discomfort. The entire procedure usually takes no longer than fifteen minutes.

Side effects of this treatment are rare, but can include some tenderness or bruising at the site of injection.

We have treated thousands of local men and women with wrinkle relaxing treatment and have experienced no long term side effects since we started using it in the late 1990s.

Is it Suitable for me?

Studies have not been performed on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Although wrinkle relaxing treatment is not thought to be dangerous, treatment is best avoided during this time. Some people with certain muscle diseases may also not be suitable for treatment; this will be discussed with you when you come to discuss your suitability for wrinkle relaxing treatment at MediZen.

Other alternative treatments for ageing skin include Dermal FillersHydraFacial and eTwo Skin Rejuvenation.

Botulinum toxin Injections can also benefit people who suffer from Excessive Sweating and Migraines.

I found the treatment quick and very painless and the staff were great. I would tell anyone who wanted this done to go to MediZen.
