Botox Anti Wrinkle Injections
Our Nurse Prescriber Kath Cumberland has over 30 years experience with anti-wrinkle injections and is a large provider of botox Stoke on Trent and Newcastle Under Lyme.
Botulinum Toxin (popularly known as Botox®, Azzalure and Bocouture) is a protein that helps stop muscles contracting. Small painless injections into the facial muscles will help keep these muscles relaxed and soften facial lines. Botox is a safe and virtually pain-free non-surgical wrinkle reduction technique. It has the advantage that treatment times are on average 5-15 minutes, and prices are dramatically lower than that of the equivalent surgery.
Botox reversibly relaxes muscle tissue which can be successfully used to combat ageing associated with gravity and sun exposure. It is usually applied to the areas around the face where dermal collagen has been weakened, such as the upper lip, forehead creases, necklines and crows feet.
Anti-Wrinkle injections (Botox®) are amongst the most popular non-surgical treatment in Stoke on Trent and the UK because of their effectiveness and comfort with immediate results. When combined with dermal fillers, you can have a non-surgical facelift at a fraction of the cost of surgery.

How long is recovery time?
There is no downtime with, although patients may be advised to stop taking medications such as aspirin prior to the appointment to minimise chances of bruising.
What is the best age to start?
The best time to consider it is when you begin to notice that your dynamic lines (these are the wrinkles that only appear through expression) appear regardless of expression and form even when static. This usually happens in your mid 30’s, however it differs from person to person dependant on genetic and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, stress, cigarette smoking and other environmental factors. It works best at this stage, rather than with deeply etched lines, which are more difficult to smooth the appearance of later on.
The longer you wait, the more invasive the treatments for wrinkles become. It can be used to prevent the appearance of wrinkles becoming etched into the skin especially if there is a clear genetic predisposition already noted .
Who carries out the treatment?
Treatments are carried out at Harley Skin and Laser in Newcastle Under Lyme Staffordshire by independant Medical Aesthetic Practitioner Kath Cumberland, Wrinkle Free Zone who has over 30 years experience.
Can I still have other treatments?
It can be safely used to optimise results with other non-surgical lifting and tightening treatments include Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing and Exilis Elite . These treatments will complement and simultaneously tighten the surrounding skin as the botox serves to soften the lines and wrinkles giving you a very natural improved refreshed appearance.
