A wrinkle relaxing Injection and dermal filler consultation is a thorough discussion with one of our doctors, who will take the time to analyse your skin, go through your medical history and discuss your desired results. After your consultation you should feel confident and well informed about your treatment.
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections are the most effective rejuvenating treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles by weakening certain muscles in order to encourage existing lines to fade and preventing the formation of new lines. They can also be used to reduce excessive facial movements.
Dermal Fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid. They are the most popular volume enhancing treatment and are often used to reduce facial lines and to restore plumpness and volume, as well as defining the shape of your face. Producing safe, long-lasting and natural looking results, dermal fillers are a safe and effective cosmetic treatment when administered by a qualified practitioner.
Small amounts of dermal filler are injected directly into the skin using an ultrafine needle. The gel integrates with the skin, helping to plump and hydrate the skin, thereby smoothing out lines and wrinkles. If the lips or facial contours are being treated, the filler adds volume, restores shape and gives a fuller appearance. Our policy is "less is more" so we will always aim to give you a natural, subtle look.
There is minimal downtime after treatment. You may experience some redness, bruising, swelling or tenderness after the treatment so it is best not to have the treatment before an event, party or occasion. The majority of these side effects will resolve within 2 weeks.

Wrinkle-relaxing injections and dermal fillers should only be carried out in an appropriate clinical environment that is clean to avoid any risk of infection and safe to be able to manage any potential complications. When it comes to choosing a clinic you should research if the clinic as a whole is registered with national bodies such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who ensure that treatments are being performed in a safe environment. London City Smiles is an advocate for the clinical governance criteria set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), under the responsibility of the Nominated Individual (NI), and this is reflected not only in the service that we provide to our patients but also in our exemplary regulatory record.
