Such injections using Botulinum Toxin (or Botox) have become established in their own right and for a good reason: because they work. When you squint, concentrate, or frown, your facial muscles contract. After years of frequently contracting combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, wrinkles and fine lines form and soon become permanent. Our anti-wrinkle treatment is primarily used to treat three main areas of the face — frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. At Maya Aesthetics, we provide a safe and trusted environment for this procedure.
Dimpling and wrinkling in your chin is a part of the natural aging process of the face. This happens because the muscle underneath the chin contracts too much. While there’s no medical cause for concern, a dimpled chin does make one feel self-conscious and, in some cases, even older. Our anti-wrinkle treatment directly address the muscles causing the issue and help you achieve a youthful look. Get rid of the dimpled orange peel texture on your chin with this treatment.
Although cuter-sounding than crow’s feet, bunny lines are no less irritating. They refer to tiny creases on both sides of the nose, right below the bridge, that become more pronounced when you laugh, smile or scrunch up your nose. Even though bunny lines may not be visible when your face muscles are at rest, they deepen over time as you grow older. Relax the muscles that cause these wrinkles with this anti-wrinkle treatment.
As we age, the mouth can take on a downturned appearance. Botox injections can help elevate the corners of the mouth to reduce a downturned appearance. This approach can often be combined with dermal fillers for optimal effects. The injections are administered into the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth down that cause a sad appearance to the face. Contact us today for a consultation to discuss the right anti-wrinkle treatment plan.
This anti-wrinkle treatment involves treating the frown lines between the eyebrows and elevating their height. Botulinum toxin is injected into the area around the brows to relax the underlying muscles, opening up the eye area and smoothening the surrounding skin. Eyebrow lift helps correct uneven or droopy brows, enabling the illusion of a more youthful look. Get in touch with us to find out how you can achieve a rested and refreshed appearance through an eyebrow lift.
When you smile, do you notice your upper teeth being overshadowed by the excessive gum tissue in your mouth? If you do, you have a gummy smile. This can be a cause of concern or embarrassment to many. Our anti-wrinkle treatment effectively limits the range of movement for your upper lip, reducing the amount of gums you show when you smile. Although minimally invasive, the gummy smile treatment will wear off in three to six months.
It is a condition that causes abnormally excessive sweating, not necessarily due to exercise or heat. Hyperhidrosis treatment involves using muscle-relaxing injections to block nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands and keeping you dry and cool. Sweating is a perfectly normal phenomenon. But when it happens too often and without any reason, it can get difficult to handle in social scenarios. The anti-wrinkle treatment for hyperhidrosis is very effective and can reduce sweating by up to 80%.
Jawline slimming Botox
The Masseter muscle runs through the rear part of your cheek — from the temporal bone to the lower jaw on each side. Large cheek muscles often make a face look squarish or bulky. The anti-wrinkle treatment weakens the enlarged Masseter muscle to reduce its size and achieve facial slimming. We recommend jawline slimming Botox for those who grind their teeth a lot (a condition known as Bruxism) or suffer from TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders).
The lip flip treatment is apt for you if you want to achieve a fuller upper lip without dermal fillers! This non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment involves injecting Botox into the upper lip to relax the muscles and flip the lip forward. It is a more cost-effective option than dermal fillers as it consumes very few units of Botox. Plus, it is a temporary solution and lasts 3-4 months — ideal if you just want to try it out. Beautify your face with subtly pouty lips. Contact Maya Aesthetics!
Nefertiti neck lift
Named after the ancient Egyptian queen Nefertiti’s elegant swan-like neck, the treatment redefines the jawline and minimises the lines on the neck for a smoother, tighter and more contoured appearance. As you grow older, the muscles under the jaw tend to pull your cheeks down, resulting in the fattening of your cheeks. This anti-wrinkle treatment involves injecting the solution into your neck muscles to rejuvenate the vertical bands for a more slender profile.
Nose tip lift
The nose is the primary feature of the face because Its shape and size define the overall facial appearance. Unfortunately, a drooping nose tip can throw off the aesthetic balance. With our anti-wrinkle treatment, you can reshape the nose for a more structured and attractive facial appearance. The treatment does not lift or raise the nose tip per se. It just relaxes the muscle that pulls the nasal top downward. It can take up to two weeks for results to be apparent.
Wrinkle-relaxing treatment for smoker's lines
The wrinkles and creases around the mouth, known as smoker’s lines, can be relaxed with this anti-wrinkle treatment. As the mouth is a busy area of the face because we speak and eat through it, there is no surprise that many of us succumb to wrinkles. Volumise and smooth out the skin easily with anti-wrinkle injections.
Please note that a supplement charge of £60.00 is chargeable for male clients due to higher dosage needs.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
It’s a medical drug made from Botulin toxin that comes from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox injections comprise onabotulinumtoxinA, originating from the microbe responsible for causing botulism, a type of food poisoning. Botox is used to temporarily remove wrinkles and fine lines by paralysing facial muscles.
Anti-wrinkle injections can last anywhere between three to six months, depending on the treatment you have opted for. However, the effect is influenced by many internal factors like your metabolic rate.
Everyone’s body is different and reacts differently to such treatments. Typically, you will start noticing an improvement within 12-14 days after your first session — depending on the treatment. In some cases, patients see results sooner.
Getting anti-wrinkle injections may feel much like a gentle pinprick. Before administering the injection, however, we use a local anaesthetic or numbing cream to mitigate any discomfort in the targeted area.
On the day of the treatment, an anaesthetic cream is first to numb your skin. Injections are then administered around the area of your face being treated and then massaged. The treatment may be uncomfortable but should never be painful. The entire process usually takes between 20-30 minutes — depending on the treatment you have opted for. For example, a neck lift Botox takes somewhere between 15 to 30 minutes.
Although aftercare and side effects will be discussed at your appointment before the treatment is carried out, there are a couple of things you can do to ensure you get the best results from Botox. For starters, take care of the targeted body part — be it face or neck — before you have the injection. Apply a gentle cleanser and moisturiser regularly, and avoid harsh products such as retinoids and exfoliants. Use sun protection. Eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, and whole grains. Keep yourself hydrated always.
Your muscle movement will revert to normal and the original wrinkles will return.
As long as you’re generally keeping healthy and do not suffer from any skin diseases or infections, you can opt for the treatment. However, Botox isn’t recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also not advised for people who’re allergic to any of the ingredients found in these injections or have a neuromuscular disorder such as myasthenia gravis. We will decide if we are to proceed with the treatment only after discussing your detailed medical history and assessing your needs and expectations from anti-wrinkle injections.
Yes, it is! Anti-wrinkle injections for men are becoming more popular with time, and we have treated several make clients who wanted to improve their appearance without making it evident that they have had Botox.
Yes, when appropriately administered by a registered specialist. Improper injection techniques can cause swelling and lumpiness and also lead to the death of skin cells and embolism that causes blindness. So, you have to pick the right aesthetic specialist for the job. Our founder Maya Lipson (NMC no. 12F0944E) is a highly qualified advanced medical aesthetics practitioner, midwife and independent prescriber. So you know you’re in safe hands with her. You might experience redness, localised swelling, tenderness and sensitivity, and occasional bruising in the targeted area. Such results are temporary and generally disappear in two to three days.
There are many brands of anti-wrinkle relaxing injections. However, only three are licensed within the UK, namely Allergan Botox, Azzalure and Bocouture. At Maya Aesthetics, the original Botox made by Allergan is preferred. But if the patient has some other preference, then that can be used instead.
