Why have wrinkle reduction injections with Face Matters?
Youthful-looking skin – the Holy Grail of beauty – no longer requires going under the surgeon’s knife. Wrinkle reduction injections are just one of the ways that we can significantly reduce the appearance of fine expressive lines and wrinkles, and help you look like a refreshed and rejuvenated version of yourself.
Our approach to wrinkle reduction injections is to reduce the intensity of the muscle activity that causes lines in the treatment area to allow your skin to rest and soften the wrinkles over time. Because the results are temporary, you have the freedom to refine the results with each treatment.
- Natural-looking results
- Improves dynamic lines & wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions
- Lifts eyebrows & diminishes creases around the eye area, including crows’ feet
- Diminishes frown & worry lines for a more relaxed look
- Advice that’s unique to you & your needs
If you choose to have wrinkle reduction injections at Face Matters, this treatment will only ever be administered by Dr Gabi Tschoepe, who has extensive knowledge of head and neck anatomy and physiology, together with training and more than 20 years’ experience in the use of medical aesthetic treatments that can subtly enhance your appearance to make you look younger. While this may cost a little more than a trip to the local beauty therapist, you can be sure of the very best medical care.
The Face Matters clinic is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and we are passionate about upholding the highest standards of care in the hands of qualified, experienced medical professionals.
Wrinkle reduction injections have a proven safety record; they’re convenient and require no recovery time, which means that you can come in for your treatment and then continue with your day without interruption.
What is Botox?
Botox® (Botulinum toxin type ‘A’) is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It was developed during the 1970s – 1980s to treat blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids) and strabismus (squint).
In 1997 it achieved FDA approval for cosmetic use in the USA and by 2006 was granted a license by the MHRA in the UK for the treatment of frown lines. Worldwide, now more than 3 million Botox® treatments take place per year.

Natural looking results

Dr Tschoepe will ask you to come in for a second appointment two weeks later to assess and document your results so that the regime can be improved, if necessary.
Wrinkle reduction injections use prescription-only drugs that have to be prescribed by a medical professional, such as a doctor, dentist or nurse prescriber. Prescription-only drugs cannot be advertised, which is why you won’t find brand names on our website or information sheets in the waiting room!
The most common side effects of this treatment are bruising and slight redness at the injection site; some people report a mild headache, particularly after a forehead procedure, but these symptoms usually self-correct within 24 hours.
Rarely, people have reported nausea, distant muscle tremors or a ‘flu-like’ illness, dry mouth, skin rashes, muscle atrophy, itching or an allergic reaction. Less than one percent of patients report eyelid drooping that resolves within two to ten weeks, or unwanted changes to the eyebrow position.
Choosing an experienced practitioner like Dr Tschoepe who has a proven history of successful treatments is important to minimise the risk of side effects.
At the same time, you should avoid touching the treated area for three to four hours to reduce the product accidentally spreading to neighbouring muscle groups. We will give you detailed aftercare instructions so you know what to do to help support the best outcomes from your treatment.
