What are the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections?

In a nutshell, your skin will look better, and you will find yourself feeling fresher, rejuvenated and more confident.

Many of us feel unhappy with the way we look, and that can have an impact on our self-confidence.  Anti-wrinkle injections can be a great confidence-booster, enabling you to feel comfortable in your own skin.

Anti-wrinkle injections will offer you smoother, younger-looking and more radiant skin.

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive procedure. A small injection is administered to facial muscles to smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines.

The injections work by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. The mechanisms that cause wrinkles are minimised, therefore reducing the formation of future lines and wrinkles and softening the appearance of current ones. The more treatments you have, the longer the effects will last and the more existing lines will fade. This helps to slow the ageing process, maintaining your youthfulness for longer.

It is a safe and painless procedure which leaves you feeling revitalised and refreshed.

Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?

Most people feel slight discomfort that is short-lived. I do everything I can to reduce your discomfort and make the treatment as pleasant as possible. A topical local anaesthetic can be used in the area to be treated before the procedure, and any needles used during the treatment are very small in size. My experience and approach to patient care makes all procedures I do comfortable and safe.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Anti-wrinkle injections last from around three to six months but will vary from person to person. A gradual fading effect can be seen about five to six weeks after the treatment is done. With repeated treatments, effects will last longer. During our consultation, we can discuss this in detail, taking into consideration your specific needs.

Will anti-wrinkle treatments make my face look “frozen”?

Absolutely not. During the procedure, I choose very carefully which muscles to inject to prevent your facial expressions from changing or becoming “frozen”. The dose will also be tailored to your goals, meaning I can customise exactly how much movement you will have after the procedure.

What can anti-wrinkle injections help treat?

  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Gummy smile
  • Nose lines (bunny lines)
  • Pebble chin
  • Downturned corners of the mouth
  • Neck lines
  • Jaw slimming
  • Rosacea
  • Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to treat other medical conditions, such as migraines and excess sweating under the arms.
