Wrinkle Reducing Injections

What are wrinkle reducing injections?

Throughout our lifetime, through use of our facial muscles repeatedly, wrinkles and frown lines will develop. As we get older both collagen and elastin production within the skin will also decline and this can lead to more deeply etched wrinkles that do not disappear even when we are not being expressive.

By administering a natural protein, Botulinum Toxin A, the muscles causing expression lines are relaxed and their movement restricted. This allows the overlying skin to recover and the visible wrinkles will soften and can fade, leaving a smoother more youthful appearance.

What does the treatment involve?

It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to perform. The treatment tends to have minimal discomfort as the needles used are very small and fine.

Will the results be instant?

The results of wrinkle reducing injections can start to show within 48-72 hours but it takes 14 days for the full effects to show. Two weeks after your treatment you will return for Sophie to give you a complimentary review to assess your results and ensure you are happy.

How long will the results last?

On average, it takes about 3-6 months for the effects to wear off completely. Peak relaxing effect generally persists for 6-8 weeks.

What are the common areas to be treated?

The three main areas that we tend to treat are:

  • Forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lipstick/smoker’s lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Nostril flaring
  • Jaw muscles
  • Vertical neck lines
  • Jaw line
  • Smile line
  • Corners of the mouth

Sophie will be able to assess you and advise on the areas that you would benefit from having treated.

Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a gel made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies.

It is injected into the skin and binds with water, helping to restore lost volume, smoothing lines and wrinkles.

What does the treatment involve?

You will be given some local anaesthetic prior to treatment to improve comfort. Dermal filler is injected into the selected areas. Treatment time will vary but will likely take between 30-60 minutes. You can expect to return to work within 8-24 hours after treatment.

Will the results be instant?

You will see some results instantly. You may experience some initial swelling in the injection areas and this will approximately 7-10 days to settle down.

How long will the results last?

Typically, the effects will last from 9- 12 months.

What are the common areas to be treated?

Sophie is well-trained in providing full-face dermal filler treatments. This can be for “beautification”, to subtly alter aspects of your appearance, or to help disguise the effects of ageing. Areas targeted include:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Chin and jaw line
  • Temples
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Tear trough


Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Sweating is a natural function of the nervous system in which the body cools down and regulates temperature. However, some people experience regular excessive sweating, which is more than normal for the environment. This is commonly referred to as Hyperhidrosis. It can occur in various areas of the body where we normally sweat including under arms, face and palms of hands.

Hyperhidrosis treatment involves the use of Botulinum toxin injections to reduce excessive sweating.

Botulinum toxin is a naturally purified protein that blocks the signals from the nerve endings to the sweat glands in the skin. It is applied through micro injections into the skin targeting the sweat glands in the area which requires treatment. It gives life changing results for those who suffer from this condition.

A single treatment can stop your excessive sweating for 4-6 months. Treatment will need to be repeated every 6 months to maintain results.

About Hyperhidrosis treatment

We offer a free of charge consultation for anyone considering treatment. Do not feel embarrassed to discuss your concerns; the condition is more common than you may think.

Your Hyperhidrosis treatment is performed by Sophie. You can be rest assured you are in safe and experienced hands.

Treatment itself takes around 45 minutes.

You should notice some improvement within a week of your treatment and this will continue over the following 2-3 weeks.

Three weeks after your treatment you will return for Sophie to give you a complimentary review to assess your results and ensure you are happy.

Management of Jaw Pain

Generally, our teeth are only designed to be in contact for a few minutes per day, whilst we chew. However, clenching/grinding of the teeth, particularly overnight, is a habit affecting many people. This can cause wear on the teeth, and additionally and increase in the size and strength of the masseter muscle, the muscle either side of the jaw. As a result, the forces produced when clenching and grinding can become even larger, hence more chipping/wear of the teeth and pain from overuse of this muscle.

Currently, there is no evidence of any treatment to completely stop this excessive clenching and grinding. We can try to manage symptoms and prevent further tooth wear with a nightguard, however often patients continue to clench and therefore they continue to get muscle pain and enlargement of this muscle. One beneficial treatment option for this is the injection of a muscle relaxant into the masseter muscle. This works by reducing the forces that the muscle can exert- therefore reducing pain experienced and reducing the likelihood of wear or chipping of the teeth.

Over time, with repeated treatments, we also see the size of the muscle reduce, resulting in a face slimming effect for many patients. It can also help stop headaches that are often a result of the clenching or grinding.

Sophie is well-trained in providing masseter-relaxing injections and offers a free consultation to discuss this in more detail.

Skin Boosters

With time, the quality and elasticity of our skin reduces. Skin boosters are micro-injections of hyaluronic acid which causes new collagen and elastin to be produced. We think of them as “injectable moisturisers”, essentially boosting the skin from within.

This has a huge range of benefits including:

  • Reducing dry patches
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving skin tone
  • Firmer skin texture
  • More “glowing” skin
  • Elimination of dark under-eye areas

Sophie can provide a range of skin booster treatments, including Redensity, Volite and Sunekos. During your consultation, she will explain the differences between each skin booster and help advise which is most suitable for your needs.
