Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti wrinkle / muscle relaxing injections:
Dynamic facial muscle movement over time can cause the overlying skin to crease where these folds occur, leaving the skin with an unwanted line or furrow. The most common areas where these can be seen are around the eyes, mouth, forehead or frown area (glabella).
At Allure we specialise in using botulinum toxin injections to address these forms of wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is a natural purified protein. We aim to give the most natural results achievable, as no one wants to look overdone or ‘frozen’. We achieve this by treating each patient with doses that will adequately relax the muscle and wrinkle whilst maintaining their natural features.
Younger patients may need fewer injections, where older patients may need more. Each patient is assessed according to the depth and severity of their lines and a tailored treatment protocol is delivered.
About Wrinkle Relaxers:
Your customised treatment takes about 10 minutes. The treatment will take about 2 or 3 days to take effect with the full effect being around one week.
How long does the treatment last?
The effects of your treatment are temporary, begin to take effect after a couple of days and can last around 3 -5 months dependant on the person
Does the treatment hurt?
Many patients liken it to a small ant bite.
Is the treatment safe and what about side effects?
Hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide have been treated with no long term reports of side effects. Some minor temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising or temporary headache over the injected area can be experienced.
A very small risk (less than 1 percent) of weakness in muscles over the eyelid area can cause a slight droop which can last 1-6 weeks depending on the person. This problem is treatable with eyedrops.
The muscle relaxant treatments on offer at Allure are not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers.

- Excessive underarm sweating, (hyperhydrosis)
