How much does it cost?
It is simply not possible to second guess what the individual treatment cost will be without a detailed assessment of need. Each person will have different needs and these will be discussed at the consultation.
Anti Wrinkle Injections;
As a guide, wrinkle reduction injections start at £185.00 for the first area, for example frown lines. Many people also require the crow's feet and forehead to be treated for optimum results. The cost for all three areas is £265.00. This cost includes the consultation fee and any follow up appointments required.
This is calculated according to how much of the product is required by syringe. Some individuals may require more product than others and a guide is as follows;
Lip Enhancement - from £285.00. (Top ups from £175.00)
Nose to mouth lines from £245.00
Chin "marionette" lines - from £245.00
How long does the treatment last?
Depending on the product used, dermal fillers last between six and twelve months. You can expect to see immediate results, although lips can swell a little more than other tissue and can take a few days to settle down.
Wrinkle reduction injections take around 14 days to show the full effect of the relaxing of the treated muscles. It is important to attend the follow up appointment in order that it can be ascertained if any top up is required. Individual results may vary, but treatment can last three to five months.
Anne works closely with a range of other therapists and professionals and can recommend a wide range of other high quality services to meet your needs.
She will discuss this with you at the consultation appointment if this is indicated or requested.
