Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment London

What does anti-wrinkle treatment do?

Anti-wrinkle treatment is used to relax the muscles in your face, preventing the skin from creasing over time and causing wrinkles. This can help your face look softer, smoother and more youthful.*

What is anti-wrinkle treatment?

Anti-wrinkle treatment involves injecting small amounts of a purified, naturally-occurring protein into specific areas of the face. This is a very safe and effective solution that is supplied by various different brands. The purpose of treatment is to temporarily reduce the movement of facial muscles that can cause expression lines. All anti-wrinkle treatment solutions are prescription-based medicines that can only be administered by qualified medical doctors, dentists and nurses.

What can anti-wrinkle injects be used to treat?

  • Dynamic frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Neck lines

As well as the above, anti-wrinkle treatment can help to slim down your jaw muscles. It can also be used to minimise the symptoms of clenching and hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating).

Am I suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment?

Anti-wrinkle injections cannot be used to treat “static” wrinkles, which typically refers to the folds and lines that are present when you are not forming facial expressions. You are not suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have a skin infection in the area required to be treated
  • Have a neuromuscular condition (e.g. myasthenia gravis, Eaton-Lambert)
  • Are allergic to the anti-wrinkle treatment solution used
  • Are taking aminoglycoside antibiotics (e.g. gentamycin, clindamycin)

Is anti-wrinkle treatment painful?

Depending on the patient and the area being treated, some mild discomfort is possible but this is usually temporary, as the anti-wrinkle treatment solution is injected relatively quickly using a very fine needle.

What can I expect from the appointment?

Our team of highly skilled and experienced dental professionals will conduct a consultation, where you will need to fill out a medical form. Photographs of your face will then be taken, treatment explained and then we ask you to sign a consent form that will allow us to carry out treatment. The dosages of the anti-wrinkle treatment solution provided will be a standard, safe amount for the area to be treated.

How long does anti-wrinkle treatment take to work, and how long will it last?

Treatment will take effect within 1 to 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to assess the result and determine if the injection dosages require amending for future appointments. Depending on how active you are, results will typically last between 3 to 4 months. However, ongoing care may be required if you wish to maintain the results for longer.

What should I do after I’ve had anti-wrinkle treatment?

You should avoid:

  • Applying make-up for at least 4 hours
  • Rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 72 hours
  • Performing strenuous exercises for at least 24 hours
  • Bending or lying down for at least 4 hours

We also recommend that you take paracetamol if you have a headache.

Are there any side effects of anti-wrinkle treatment?

Anti-wrinkle treatment is one of the most popular facial aesthetic procedures in the UK, with an excellent 20-year track record. As with any other medicine, however, there are some possible side effects to be aware of. These include:

  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Irritation
  • Bleeding

Less common side effects include:

  • Infection
  • Dropping of the eyebrow/eyelid
  • Asymmetry

The risk of these side effects occurring is significantly reduced so long as you follow all the advice your professional provides for after treatment care.
