Anti Wrinkle Injections

Botulinum toxin, often referred to as Botox®  is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. The toxin blocks the transition of chemical messages sent from the nerve to cause the muscle to contract. Without these messages, the muscle stays in a resting state until the brain decides to send a further message to kick start the process again.  

There are many brands of botox available and at The Retreat we only use Allergan Botox®. The hospital product of choice and the product with the greatest safety data of all. 

Treatment:

Involves a series of very small injections across the area being treated. The dynamics of the upper face are such that all of the muscles interplay.Therefore, it is sometimes difficult to treat a single area in isolation.Every face is unique and a thorough medical consultation is required to assess your face musculature, skin age and laxity prior to treatment. 

PLEASE NOTE: *********

The Independent Healthcare Advisory Service (IHAS), endorsed by the General Medical Council (GMC), has been formed to regulate the cosmetic industry and protect the general public. IHAS states that only medically qualified practitioners, i.e, Doctors, Dentists or Nurses who hold the Independent Prescribing qualification, can safely provide injectable cosmetic procedures such as Botulinum Toxin A.

We are pleased to reassure all of our patients that treatments are carried out by Lynn our  registered Independent Nurse Prescriber who is highly trained and qualified in advanced non surgical cosmetic procedures.
