Line Softening Injections are a well-known, popular anti-ageing treatment that actively softens lines and wrinkles, giving you a healthier younger looking appearance.
Wrinkles and lines are developed when the natural collagen in the skin depletes, this usually starts to happen around the age of 30. These wrinkles worsen over time as you are constantly using these muscles for facial expressions, therefore these lines and wrinkles can develop into a permanent feature. Other factors such as sun exposure, stress, smoking, pollution and drinking alcohol can also have a role to play in producing unwanted lines and wrinkles, so it is important to take all these environmental factors into consideration when choosing your treatment plan.
Aestheticare pride ourselves in this area of expertise as we understand the skill required to achieve the look our clients require, this could be a subtle non-frozen appearance which compliments their natural beauty.

Botulinum toxin type A is a prescription only medication that works by temporally blocking the signals made by your nerve endings, therefore stopping the release of Acetylcholine.
The chemical Acetylcholine transmits the signals made by your nerve endings, this then activates the muscles to contract allowing movement in your face and eventually lines and wrinkles starts to form .
Softening injections can last between 2 to 4 months, the effects gradually disappear over time leaving your skin's appearance as it was before your treatment.
An initial face to face consultation with one of our prescribing practitioners will need to be completed first, this allows us to take a full medical history and establish if this treatment is right for you.
Once the decision is made to go ahead with the treatment we will complete a full facial examination, this allows the nurse practitioner to to set out a individualised treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
The procedure itself consists of multiple small doses being superficially injected into the area of concern by using a very fine needle. This treatment is relatively painless as numbing cream can be used, however most clients do not require this option.
This depends on the individual, some see a change within as little as 2 days but most see a change anywhere from 2-5 days with the maximum effect being achieved at two weeks.
