Create a smooth, rejuvenated, and fresh appearance by temporarily weakening the muscles that cause the wrinkles and thus relaxing facial expression and softening dynamic wrinkles.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-Wrinkle injections use an FDA-approved substance made out of purified botulinum protein.
Small amounts of this are injected into the muscles underneath wrinkles. This helps to relax the muscles, which as a result, reduces the appearance of visible lines. This popular cosmetic treatment has helped many people re-establish a younger complexion by smoothing out the skin, and providing a rejuvenated look.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
It is important to understand that the effects of this aesthetic treatment are temporary. Most patients can enjoy the benefits that it has to offer for around three to six months.
Luckily, top-up injections can be administered further down the line if you wish to have them. With minimal recovery time and side effects, you can continue life as normal after the treatment is completed.
Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections
No more than 20 minutes
It takes no more than 20 minutes to complete the procedure. After the treatment, you can go about your normal day, with no need to take time off work which helps if you have a busy lifestyle.
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles. Patients who undergo the treatment look refreshed, younger and more vibrant, giving off a revitalised complexion.
Surgery can be a disconcerting option for many, and although injections can cause slight discomfort when administered, they are much less invasive, requiring far less time to heal.

Can I keep my makeup on?
In order to assess your lines & wrinkles and make the injections, the skin needs to be clean in the area we’re going to treat. If you wear makeup to your appointment, we’ll need to remove it before your treatment. You’ll be able to reapply it after 4 hours.
What must I absolutely avoid after my treatment?
No exercise, alcohol consumption or sauna/steam rooms for 24 hours; no facials for 2 weeks.
What is the downtime? Can I go back to work after my treatment?
You sure can! The great thing about this treatment is there’s virtually no downtime. You might have small red bumps that look like bug bites at first, but they usually go away within the hour, and you can head back into work with no problem.
When will I see the results?
Noticeable results should appear around 3 to 5 days. Skin starts to feel tighter; you should see less movement and wrinkling in the injected areas. It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full results.
Are there any other side effects I should know about?
Headache, minor bruising or swelling at the injection site are the most common but these are still rare side effects. Others are much less common, but we’re happy to discuss them with you during consultation if you’re concerned.
