Wrinkle Reduction Treatments

Wrinkles can often be visible around the face, but no where are they more visible than in the forehead, frown and crows feet (around the eyes). These lines often form as part of our normal expressions but can sometimes make us appear older, tired or even angry (in the case of frown lines). People often have a stereotypical impression that ‘bot*x’ treatments can look fake or ‘plastic’- often referencing certain celebrities who look like they have had too much work. The reality is that wrinkle reduction treatments, using Botulinum Toxin, are incredibly effective at reducing wrinkles around the face and they can be done in a way that reduces wrinkles while preserving expression to look completely natural and unnoticeable to others. Dr Hayder Ria has been perfecting his wrinkle reduction treatments over the past 9 years with careful measurements and dosing schedules that are designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without looking obvious and without the common pitfalls of treatment often observed when the treatment is carried out by less experienced practitioners.

Why consider Wrinkle Reduction treatment?

Wrinkles often deepen with time. The wrinkles around your eyes or in the forehead/frown areas often start out as fine lines. However, if left untreated these fine lines can develop over time into permanent, deeper lines. Wrinkle reduction treatments using Botulinum Toxin can both reduce the current appearance of these wrinkles and prevent them from becoming deeper or permanent in the future- thereby keeping the skin looking smoother and more youthful for years to come. Prevention is key!

The treatment is conducted by injecting a medicine, called Botulinum Toxin, directly into the muscles which contract to form the wrinkles. The medicine acts to relax these muscles which then in turn softens the wrinkles. Botulinum toxin A was known as far back as the 1970s when it was used to treat a condition of the eye muscles called “strabismus”. In the 1990s, however, it was first proposed that it could be used to provide cosmetic enhancements, in particular, wrinkle reduction. Since then it has been used safely and effectively on millions of people worldwide and is considered the gold standard of wrinkle reduction treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Benefits of a Wrinkle Reduction Treatment?
  • Fine wrinkles around the forehead, in the frown area and around the eyes can be reduced significantly using Botulinum Toxin without removing your ability to produce natural-looking expressions
  • Wrinkle reduction treatments act to prevent fine lines from becoming deeper or more permanent lines- which would then need much more work to reduce
  • Botulinum toxin can also be used to reduce the ‘gummy smile’ (when too much of your gums show when you smile), bunny lines (lines around the nose when smiling) and to lift the eye brows
  • The results look completely natural and most people won’t look like they had treatment by the time the treatment settles
  • The treatment usually takes around 10 minutes so it’s easy to fit in between other commitments
  • There is usually minimal downtime and you can usually resume your normal routine immediately after treatment.
  • Results usually last around 4-6 months

There’s no long-term commitment- in the event that you feel the treatment is not for you, the treatment can be left to disappear over time.

How do I know if Wrinkle Reduction Treatment is right for me?

The answer to this is quite simple- if you have wrinkles in your forehead, frown area or around the eyes and want to soften these in a way that looks as natural as possible, at an affordable price, with minimal downtime and without the hassle or expense of surgery, then wrinkle reduction treatment using botulinum toxin could be the right solution for you.

Will the results look natural?

Absolutely. Dr Ria is one of the most respected and experienced practitioners for cosmetic injectables in London with over 20,000 treatments performed successfully over the last 9 years. His focus is on enhancing your appearance in a way that doesn’t draw the wrong type of attention to yourself. In the case of wrinkle reduction, Dr Ria specialises in softening the wrinkles while preserving your natural expression.

Is Wrinkle Reduction treatment painful?

Weirdly, no! Dr Ria usually uses a careful and delicate injection technique using the smallest possible needles which are often only minimally uncomfortable and most people tolerate the procedure without any issue and minimal pain.

What should I expect on the day?

Dr Ria would usually welcome you and start with a detailed consultation. This would include discussing any previous treatments you’ve had, what your understanding of the treatment is and exploring your goals and expectations. He will also discuss the nature of the injecting procedure and related risks. If you are agreeable, Dr Ria will then usually conduct the treatment by first taking a pre-treatment photo while you complete the necessary medical and consent forms. After the treatment is complete, the treatment area is cleaned and then a post-treatment photo is usually taken for comparison purposes. Dr Ria will then explain any relevant aftercare and offer you information on how to contact him for questions or any follow-up you might require. Dr Ria is always contactable directly by his clients for any clinical queries by email.

What should I expect afterwards?

There will usually be some redness and swelling in the injected areas. Usually this is mild/minimal and often doesn’t last for more than an hour!

Are there any precautions I should take beforehand or afterwards?

We usually advise that you refrain from drinking any alcohol for 48 hours before your treatment as this could increase your chances of bruising. Other than that, there’s not much you need to do in preparation for the treatment. We do not advise stopping any medication before your treatment.

Is there any follow-up after the procedure?

We don’t routinely follow up everyone after their treatment. The vast majority of people get the results they are looking for in just one treatment session. However, in certain cases some people will need more treatment to get their desired results and may need to come back for a top-up. If you ever feel the need to be reviewed after your treatment for whatever reason then Dr Ria is always happy to offer this free of charge.
