Anti-wrinkle Treatments in London

As we age, our skin produces less of the proteins collagen and elastin. This makes our skin thinner and less resistant to damage. Environmental exposure, dehydration and excessive muscle contraction cause the formation of wrinkles. Especially on your most prominent sun-exposed skin, such as the face, neck, hands, and forearms.

Botulinum toxin type A

Botulinum toxin type A (Neurotoxin) is a protein made from Botulinum toxin that is used to disrupt the nerve signals that stimulate muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to become relaxed. The drug that weakens or relaxes muscles, when used correctly and in small doses, can reduce facial wrinkles (wrinkle relaxing injection). However, its real value has proved useful in dealing with certain conditions of overactive muscles in other body’s areas like such as:

  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) problems.
  • Dealing with intractable Migraine Headache (head & shoulder muscles)
  • Jaw muscle clenching (Bruxism)

The following procedures fall under the category of ‘non surgical solutions of aesthetic regenerative sexual medicine and aesthetic gynecology’. Hence they are medical procedures for the purpose of addressing a medical condition. Only trained specialist consultants in sexual wellness should perform the below procedures. These treatments are not labelled as ‘aesthetics’ or ‘aesthetic treatments’

  • Bladder wall muscle overactivity
  • (DOA)- Detrusor Overactivity/hyperreflexia- causing Urgency Urinary Incontinence
  • Muscle spasms (stiffness) of the feminine intimate area (Vaginismus)
  • Erectile Dysfunctions in men (as evidenced by recent scientific studies).

Common facial areas to relax the stiff muscles include:

A very beneficial use of neurotoxin is to relieve Bruxism (teeth grinding). This can cause persistent headaches and affect the health of your teeth.
The muscle at the corner of the jaw may appear prominent causing square jaw contour. Neurotoxin can help to lift the redundancy in neck bands (Platysma muscles). This is famously called Nefertiti’s neck lift.
Botulinum A is useful to relax the bunny lines, gummy smile and to lift up the tip of the nose and reduce nose flare

Neurotoxin Stress Urinary incontinence

Stress Urinary incontinence (urine leakage while coughing or laughing) is a common problem, especially after childbirth & at menopause. It can impair a woman’s social, physical or mental life. Urge incontinence is defined as the involuntary and uncontrollable loss of urine caused by the bladder muscle’s non rhythmic contraction (neurogenic bladder).
One of the non-surgical options in regenerative gynaecology is the injection of Botulinum A Neurotoxin directly into the bladder wall (via cystoscopy). The aim of this treatment is to allow the bladder detrusor muscle to relax thus alleviating the leakage symptom. This is solely performed by Dr. Nadia Yousri.

Neurotoxin for Excessive Sweating

Some people sweat much more than normal. They have hyperhidrosis. The most common areas for hyperhidrosis are the scalp, underarms, hands, feet, and groin area. Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and socially isolating and many people find the condition quite upsetting. Botulinum A toxin is injected to block the nerve signals responsible for releasing the chemical transmitter releasing the activity of sweating. Small doses are injected into the skin blocking nerve supply to the apocrine sweat glands and to prevent the glands from producing sweat. This doesn’t cure hyperhidrosis but provides temporary relief and needs to be repeated every five to six months for maximum effect. This is because, as the nerve end receptors regenerate over time, a process called synaptic-sprouting and receptor formation. This leads to the re-occurrence of chemical transmitter release and gives the ‘wearing off’ effect of Botulinum A toxin.
