Anti Wrinkle Therapy
We treat facial wrinkles with Botox injections, which may be provided following a consultation for lines and wrinkles. If you are unhappy with lines and wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyebrows or your crow’s feet, book a free consultation with Dr McKeown.
Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin type A, a substance that is administered by a tiny injection to stop your nerves from sending messages to activate the muscle.
Treatment can be repeated three or four times a year and after multiple treatments the effects may last for up to six months. In your consultation we’ll assess your medical history, make an examination of your facial muscles, take photographs and discuss your expectations.
The injections take 10 to 20 minutes to administer and are no more painful than an insect bite or pinprick. Normal activity can be resumed immediately, although strenuous activity should be avoided for 24 hours after treatment.
It can take several days to see the full benefits of the treatment, but the effects last three to four months. With repeated treatments three or four times a year the effects of each treatment may start to last longer, in some cases for up to six months.
Side effects may include mild temporary bruising, numbness, or redness around the injection sites. In rare cases patients may experience one or more of the following: headache, temporary blurred vision, temporary eye-lid droop, nausea, pain, redness at the spot of injection, muscle weakness.

As we age the skin loses its elasticity causing our facial expressions to develop lines and hollows. Common examples are the lines at the side of the mouth ie from the nose to the sides of the mouth. Dermal fillers are very safe injectable gels which provide hydration and structure to smooth away the appearance of lines, wrinkles and creases, and enhance facial shape. They are used to plump up and temporarily fill in these lines which have developed, and can be used alone or in combination with botulinum toxin.
A good smile is the only thing you can wear that won’t go out of fashion!
Over time, the fullness and definition of our lips can fade as we gracefully grow older. Lip fillers can help to restore what was once there and help our patients feel naturally beautiful.
Environmental factors and lifestyle choices, such as smoking and alcohol, can also have an effect on the look of the lips.
And so can your genetics. Your genetic makeup dictates the natural look of the lips and face, and we practitioners must take this into account when we carry out minor lip enhancements. This is what we like to call balancing the harmony of the face.
A little goes a long way when it comes to fillers. We pride ourselves on the high standards we hold when carrying out any treatments – we will never lead you astray or advise you to get something done which we do not believe to be necessary.
