Anti-wrinkle injections

Facial lines are caused by the repeated use of the facial muscles. Facial lines form wherever we frown, squint or smile.

Anti wrinkle treatments are a preventative treatment to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes.

Injections are given to temporarily put the muscles to sleep for a period of three to six months, although the results can last longer with repeated treatments. This freezing of the muscle is always temporary and can never be permanent as the muscle “hibernates” for a few months.

The aim is to break the habit of frowning and educate the patient in his or her facial movement so that one “forgets” how to frown. Usually patients have several of these injections over a year or two until the frowning habit is broken.

The positive benefits of anti-wrinkle injections are that while the muscle is temporarily immobilised, the frown line is not being created or reinforced. Most patients notice that their existing frown lines do soften because the forehead is completely relaxed.

Treatment takes approximately 15 minutes.  Afterwards you may have some tiny red marks where the needle was inserted, these may last up to 24 hours. The effect takes effect over a week to ten days. After two weeks the muscle will be completely “asleep”.

Very occasionally you may require more than the usual injection amount; if the muscle does not go to sleep you may have to have a top up injection. Also patients who have well-exercised and developed frown muscles (more common in men) may need a second injection. It is better to inject a conservative amount of the substance and add more if required.

Dermal Fillers

As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting.

The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.

When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face. Fillers can help fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.

Injectable fillers are primarily used to improve the appearance of the skin’s texture. They can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases and furrows, “sunken” cheeks, skin depressions and some types of scars. They can also be used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to areas including the lips.

What to expect from fillers:

The most important fact to remember about injectable fillers is that the results are not permanent. Injected material is eventually absorbed by the body. You should not expect the same long-lasting results.

Researchers believe that age, genetic background, skin quality and lifestyle as well as the injected body site may all play a role in the injected material’s “staying power.” However, the precise reason for the variation of results among patients has yet to be identified.

Lip Enhancement

Lips are an important part of facial beauty.  These can be created using material naturally found in the body. A simple, safe, temporary dermal filler treatment can add volume and definition which can enhance small, thin lips. The procedure can also balance out asymmetric lips or reduce the appearance of those fine, vertical lines.

Which part of the lip can be enhanced?

Lip enhancement can be performed at many different areas of the lips:

  • Vermilion border or lip outline – for creating definition, width and improve lipstick bleeding lines
  • Lip augmentation targeting the fleshy part of the upper and lower lip – for volume, pout and fullness
  • Cupids bow definition – adds definition and contouring
  • Oral commissures or lines going down from the sides of the mouth – for a younger and happy look
  • Marionette lines (sad lines from corner of lips downward) – also known as puppet lines
  • Philtrum ridges that go from the upper lip towards the nose can be made more defined
  • Perioral lines or fine vertical lines often due to smoking on the upper lip can be reduced

The results are immediate and last from 6-12 months. As the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time and you will always retain a natural look.

Totally professional. Northern are clearly very good at what they do, highly educated and extremely caring. Cannot speak highly enough about all interactions I had. I felt very at ease after my appointment and my results are fantastic, not even a bruise.
