Wrinkle Relaxing treatments
When thinking about having wrinkle relaxing injections, you should consider who is going to administer the treatment, whether they have been appropriately trained and insured? Few doctors actually know how to administer Botulinum injections correctly; at the Bloomfield Clinic in Ayrshire, Dr Cormac has a Masters Degree in Aesthetic Medicine and teaches others in techniques and safety procedures and. He is fully qualified to use Botulinum toxins for facial rejuvenation and will both provide an overall assessment and advise on the achievement of facial harmony with the treatment. We use only the best available products.
Based on a special assessment of your anatomy and drawing on his extensive experience, Dr Cormac will carefully select the correct dose of product to subtly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Knowing the exact location of the muscles we wish to relax ensures that you get the results you crave. Some people may request “the frozen look” which is a recognised and acceptable option. We recommend the natural look, and after 3 - 4 days you will be starting to enjoy a smoother, rejuvenated face.

A treatment will then take 5 - 15 minutes depending on the number of areas to be treated.

Do Botulinum toxin injections always work?
In order to get the best from these treatments it is important to carefully choose your practitioner and be confident that they are using a premium product. While it is impossible to guarantee the effect created, having a practitioner who you can trust will ensure that they will do their best to get the desired effect. It is possible that at review, you may require a top-up treatment to certain areas. Our experience is that Dr Cormac will only occasionally have to top-up the treatment. It also helps to know how you respond to treatment and Dr Cormac will carefully document your response so that we can tailor your treatment even better in the future.
If you are being offered a cheap price elsewhere, please be aware that you may be receiving an inferior product or possibly very low doses of product. Some practitioners will then seek to charge large sums for a top-up.
Remember that results achieved are also down to the skill of the practitioner administering the injection. Treatment must be given into the right muscles at the right dose. You can be safe in the knowledge that Dr Cormac is not only a Doctor, but is a Clinical Lecturer and trainer in Aesthetic Medicine.
