Fast & Effective treatment for reducing fine lines & wrinkles
Frequently Asked Questions
Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as ‘Botox®’, or botulinum toxin, are naturally-occurring proteins that work to block nerve signals at the injection point. As signals from the nerves to the muscles in the face are stopped, the injected muscle will no longer be able to contract as tightly, causing wrinkles to relax and soften.
Perfect for the forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and the chin, as well as smoker’s lines and skin ageing of the neck, anti-wrinkle injections can take years off of your face, enhancing your natural beauty.

During the treatment a topical anaesthetic is used to minimise discomfort. There may be a slight stinging feeling as the toxin is injected, but this only lasts a few seconds.
After your treatment a small amount of swelling or bruising at the injection points is possible. You may also experience some tenderness for 24-72 hours.
Normal side effects include small amounts of swelling, bruising, redness and soreness. Most of these will subside after a couple of days and be gone within ten. If you are still experiencing problems after ten days you should contact us for advice.
The first time you have anti-wrinkle injections, you can expect the results to last for between three and six months. Results vary depending on how well you look after your skin, as well as your skin type and the severity of the wrinkles you’ve had treated.
Using anti-wrinkle injections regularly can increase the amount of time that the effects last for. Because it freezes the muscles, over time these muscles will become shorter and smaller. This can often mean that, if you have your treatment repeated regularly, you start to need fewer treatments with greater time spans between them.
When you’re thinking about how long anti-wrinkle injections last, it’s important to consider how many times you’ve been treated, as well as other influencing factors. Younger people with less depth to their wrinkles will usually have longer lasting results than those with deeper wrinkles and less elastic skin.
