Wrinkle Treatments

Rhytides

Wrinkles (rhytids) are natural creases or folds in the skin which typically appear as we naturally age. They are also caused as a result of sun damage, smoking, stress, poor hydration and habitual facial expressions. Sadly, wrinkles and having bags under the eyes are practically inevitable but some are preventable and there are many medical grade anti-wrinkle creams and treatments available that work to help minimise their appearance. Mr Banwell and his team can advise on products from the Rationale Skin Care range.

Avoiding sun exposure and applying high protection sunscreen from an early age are the classic treatments that will help to reduce wrinkling in later life. Anti-Ageing serums or topical cosmeceuticals applied daily will also help reduce wrinkles and lessen further formation.

However, one of the mainstays for treating wrinkles and reducing the appearance of wrinkles is botulinum toxin. Botox is a highly effective remedy for treating Dynamic lines (wrinkles caused by muscular activity) and is probably the most well known wrinkle treatment (see below). Injectable dermal fillers, eg. Juvederm, can be also used to add volume and lessen the appearance of wrinkled static lines (click here for link to dermal fillers page). Lastly, chemical peels, plasma shower and dermaroller (medical needling) are very effective in reducing and softening fine lines too.

Wrinkle Reducing Treatment

Botox® is one of the many trade names for botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin has been safely used in the medical profession for many years. Since the 1980’s Botox® has been used successfully in the field of aesthetic/cosmetic medicine. In cosmetic procedures a small amount of diluted botulinum toxin enables deep controlled relaxation of muscles to smooth wrinkles and lines on the face. Botox® can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines over the upper part of the face such as the forehead, the glabella (frown lines between the eyes) and the lines around the outer corner of the eyes (crow’s feet). Botox is also commonly injected around the mouth, lips, neck, hands and eyelids.

Overview

As well as eyelid surgery and forehead lifting (brow lift), botox can best be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the outside of the eyes and between the eyebrows, offering professional remedies for crows feet and wrinkles of the side of the nose sometimes associated with smiling by paralysing certain muscles temporarily. Botox temporarily paralyses the muscle decreasing dynamic lines and used long term will minimise the production of stationary lines. Wrinkle reducing treatments such as botox is now commonplace and millions of treatments have been performed worldwide.

TIME OFF WORK

It is very rare to have an allergic reaction to botox. Occasionally bruising and swelling occur and this may take a week or so to improve.

Botox may spread to involve muscles of the face that were not intended to be the target, which may result in drooping of the eyelid. This will generally subside within two to three weeks, which Mr Banwell may review.

Cold packs may used to numb the area prior to the injection of Botox and minimise superficial bruising following treatment.

Result times vary from patient to patient and can sometimes take up to five days for the paralysis of the muscles to occur and for wrinkles to diminish. Any bruising can be helped with cold packs for a period of 48 hours.

Thank you so much to you and your team for all that you have done for me, it is greatly appreciated.

I consider myself blessed when I came across you Mr Banwell. You performed my operation almost a year ago which I am pleased to say was a GREAT success. I am more than pleased with the results, my whole shape is so much more defined and I love it. From the first time I met you at my initial consultation, you put me at ease immediately and never pressured me at any point to undertake the operation, you also never tired of my questions and you offered me only professional sound guidance and advice. You as a surgeon I have found to be completely transparent, knowledgeable, educated beyond most surgeons (that I came across) and totally professional, your skills and attention to detail are second to none.

I was extremely happy with the care I received; all the staff were polite, friendly and caring. I felt totally at ease and everything was very efficient.  I am very happy with the outcome and I would have no hesitation about recommending Mr Banwell. I fact I already have to 2 people! Thank you.

My whole experience was made comfortable by warm, friendly and welcoming nursing staff. Mr Banwell has a lovely bedside manner and was more than happy to discuss my worried however strange. At 37 years of age and after 4 children I never thought I would have the tummy of an 18 year old again, Mr Banwell is a very clever man.

I decided to have treatment with Mr Banwell as I had been seeing him on several occasions regarding stomach irregularities due to a disastrous lipo operation abroad a few years ago. We discussed various options together and I always felt comfortable talking with Mr Banwell and trust him completely to give me the correct advice when considering surgery. I felt my expectations were realistic as Mr Banwell had advised me of the possible downside of the procedure. However, all my expectations were exceeded tenfold! My stomach is looking so much better aesthetically and my breasts look amazing! Mr Banwell and his team excelled at making me feel comfortable and relaxed. I felt I was able to discuss matters with friendly people who cared. I feel Mr Banwell takes time to cover all aspects of the procedure in a friendly, caring and informative manner. I feel happy to say one couldn’t be in safer hands. My overall experience with Mr Banwell and his team has been very positive in all aspects culminating in amazing results. I couldn’t be happier.

A perfect blemish free outcome!
