About the procedure
Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive, effective and affordable way to reduce the signs of ageing and provide natural-looking results.
Also known as anti-ageing injectables, anti-wrinkle injections can smooth out lines and wrinkles caused by ageing, smoking or sun exposure. Keeping the face smooth and supple becomes more difficult as we age. Anti-wrinkle treatments help keep a more youthful look by smoothing out forehead lines, and lines around the eyes and mouth without surgery.
Quick and easy with hardly any downtime, you can get a more youthful and refreshed look in a matter of minutes. All anti-wrinkle injections are performed by our experienced medical team of doctors and nurses.
What is an anti-wrinkle injection?
An anti-wrinkle injection is one of the most common cosmetic procedures due to the quick and effective results, affordable price and natural-looking results. Commonly referred to as ‘Botox’, anti-wrinkle injectables use a naturally occurring protein to relax the muscles and reduce and smooth wrinkles.
The procedure takes around 30 minutes and as there few adverse reactions, you can quickly return to your day-to-day activities. Results generally last around 3 to 4 months.
What are the most common anti-wrinkle injection areas?
- Around the lips and mouth for the ‘pursing’ lines
- Forehead for the vertical ‘frown’ lines and horizontal ‘surprise’ lines
- Around the eyes to soften the ‘crows feet’
- Jawline to soften a hard or square jaw by reducing the tense muscles in the area
- Neck to reduce the horizontal bands and vertical bands
- Nostrils to decrease their width
- Chin to address dimpled skin
What are the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections?
- Natural-looking results
‘Crows feet’, forehead lines and wrinkles caused by laughing or frowning can be softened with anti-wrinkle injections. The treatment targets specific areas and weakens the muscles that create these lines. Each treatment is personalised to you and aims to deliver natural-looking results. Eyebrows and down-turned corners of the mouth can be lifted to create an enhanced, natural look without anyone suspecting you’ve had ‘work’ done.
2. Preventative ageing treatment
We all know that as part of the ageing process, we will develop wrinkles. But anti-wrinkle injections can be used as a preventative measure to help soften the expression lines that have already formed on the face. The treatment can prevent the lines from deepening and pause the development of the formation of future lines on the face.
Some people have very expressive faces which cause wrinkles to develop even when your face is at rest. Pause the process with preventative anti-wrinkle treatments.
3. Reduce the appearance of fatigue
Ageing and repetitive muscle movement create lines on the face that are visible, even when your face is at rest. These static lines create a tired, fatigued appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections can soften those lines and wrinkles, making your face look instantly more youthful, refreshed and relaxed.
4. Enhanced facial symmetry
The human eye is drawn to symmetry. We have a strong preference for symmetrical faces and bodies which evolutionary psychologists have determined is due to symmetry being a signal of good health. Anti-wrinkle injections can help ‘lift’ parts of the face, such as lifting heavy eyebrows, softening the jawline and slimming the face. This helps create more facial symmetry and a more pleasing appearance.
5. Results aren’t permanent
Each client has a personalised treatment to address specific parts of the face that you would like to be enhanced. Anti-wrinkle injections are not permanent and results can last around 3 to 4 months. This provides first-time clients more reassurance, knowing that results aren’t permanent.
6. Boosts your self-confidence
It’s no surprise that many of us seek to enhance our physical appearance to boost our self-confidence and self-assurance. After anti-wrinkle treatments, our clients have reported feeling more confident in themselves and their appearance. Additional benefits of anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) include reducing excessive sweating (such as under the arms) and reducing teeth grinding (when the jawline is treated).
