Beautiform Aesthetics® Anti Wrinkle Treatments
Beautiform Aesthetics® will assist and guide you in your aesthetic care...
We use our facial muscles from birth to express ourselves, when eating and talking even when we sleep. As we get older these muscles get stronger but other aspects of our skin loose elasticity creating lines and wrinkles as our facial muscles contract and relax. These folds in the skin can be treated by injectable muscle relaxers(anti‐Wrinkle product), that when injected, target the nerves at the base of the facial muscles to prevent the muscles contracting leaving a smoother appearance on the surface of the skin.
* Anti‐Wrinkle product may be prescribed only after a professional medical consultation has taken place.
The common areas to be treated are the crows feet around the eyes, the lines across the forehead and the frown area. For many people the frown area is the main motivator to have these injections, especially men who tend to frown when they concentrate which can leave a permanent frown line.
Step 1 - Consultation
Simply request a free face to face consultation with Jacqui, our Beautiform Aesthetics® practitioner and together we can develop your treatment plan. Your clinic Personal Care Record(PCR) will be created to accurately record and store your clinical records.
At Beautiform Aesthetics® we always give you time between your consultations and treatments. We care that you are given the time to fully understand and consider your treatment.
Step 2 - Treatment
We have a purpose built medical clinic room where we deliver all our treatments from. This is a room extended from a private residential house with a private entrance door at the side of the building.
Although the anti wrinkle treatment is not overly painful, as with all Beautiform Aesthetic® treatments, we will apply a medical grade numbing cream to the treatment area to reduce sensitivity and make your treatment more comfortable. You will receive injections as detailed and agreed in your PCR care plan. Treatment will take approximately ten minutes.
A record of your treatment will be recorded in your PCR and you will be given advice and support to ensure that you are well informed regarding the aftercare of your treatment area. It is normal to have some redness and swelling following the treatment but this should settle quickly.
Immediately after your treatment your Beautiform Aesthetics® Practitioner will give you written aftercare advice and will explain anything to look out for and provide you with contact information incase you have any concerns, post treatment.
The full effects of your treatment will be seen within 14 days. Your lines and wrinkles will be significantly reduced presenting a smoother and more relaxed appearance.
Step 3 - Follow up
At Beautiform Aesthetics® we want you to have the best possible aesthetics experience therefore a free aftercare follow up appointment will be given with all treatments.
Around 14 days after your treatment date your Beautiform Aesthetics® Practitioner will ensure you recieve a follow up appointment.
Your follow up appointment is important to us as it gives us the opportunity to assess and record the results. This information will allow us to further enhance and refine any further treatments that you receive from Beautiform Aesthetics®.

Botulinum toxin type A has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands.
In 2014 the Scottish Government commissioned research on the aesthetics industry in Scotland and enlisted a wide variety of stakeholders within the industry, known as the 'Scottish Cosmetic Interventions Expert Group'.
Findings from the report identified 8787 people from research papers whom had recieved Botulinum toxin type A injections. In all cases where adverse events were found, all resolved themselves without the need for further treatment.
