Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

If you’ve developed lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows, across your forehead or around your eyes, we can treat them easily with muscle relaxing injections. And you won’t look ‘frozen’; our skilled technique gently softens lines, so you’ll still have plenty of natural movement in your face.

Slimming the face - sometimes, an overdevelopment of the chewing muscles can make your face look wider than you’d like. In certain instances, we can apply a muscle relaxing treatment to give your face a slimmer, softer shape.

Lifting the brows - drooping eyebrows can make you look tired and older than you feel. With a few small muscle relaxing injections, we can provide a subtle lift, opening up your eyes for a more youthful and alert appearance.

Correcting a gummy smile - If you show a little too much gum when you smile, we can inject tiny amounts of a muscle-relaxing treatment to reduce the upper lip’s elevation. The result? A balanced, beautiful smile.

Other uses of muscle relaxing injections:

  • Reduce hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Correct a droopy nasal tip
  • Reduce nasal flare
  • Improve chin dimpling
  • Reduce fine vertical lines on the upper lip
  • Subtly flip out the upper lip border
  • Treat chest lines and wrinkles
  • Ease jaw clenching and tooth grinding
  • Treat chronic migraine and headaches
  • Give a wider-eyed look when smiling

Benefits of anti-wrinkle injections

Reducing fine lines and wrinkles: Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily paralyze muscles that cause wrinkles to form. This process helps to reduce wrinkles and prevent new ones. It is especially effective in areas where wrinkles commonly appear, such as the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.

Non-invasive and minimal downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, anti-wrinkle injections are non-invasive, requiring no incisions or sutures. This makes them an attractive option for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation without the need for an extensive recovery period. Patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately after the treatment.

Natural-looking results: One of the key advantages of anti-wrinkle injections is their ability to deliver natural-looking results. Our experts can target muscles to reduce wrinkles while keeping facial expressions natural and authentic. Those who wish to maintain a youthful look without an overly "frozen" appearance often prefer this subtlety.

Preventive measures: Anti-wrinkle injections can also serve as a preventive measure against the formation of deep-set wrinkles. Addressing fine lines early can slow aging and maintain a youthful complexion over time.

Boosted confidence and well-being: Looking younger can make you feel better about yourself and boost your confidence. It can improve your self-esteem and overall well-being. Feeling good about how you look can make you feel better mentally and improve your personal and work life.

Versatility in treatment areas: You can use anti-wrinkle injections on different parts of the face to target specific concerns for each person. Whether targeting forehead lines, crow's feet, or frown lines, the injections offer a customisable approach to facial aesthetics.

The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.

One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo® not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees, and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are anti-wrinkle injections, and how do they work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The injections work by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the muscles where they are applied, causing the muscles to relax. This relaxation smoothes out wrinkles and prevents the formation of new ones.

How long do the effects of anti-wrinkle injections last?

The effects of anti-wrinkle injections typically last for about three to six months. However, individual results may vary. To maintain the desired look, individuals often schedule follow-up appointments for repeat injections.

Are there any side effects associated with anti-wrinkle injections?

While side effects are generally minimal, some individuals may experience temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. These effects typically subside within a few days. Serious complications are rare when the procedures are performed by qualified and experienced practitioners.

Can anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers be used together?

Yes, it is not uncommon for individuals to use both anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers in a combined approach to address multiple facial concerns. Anti-wrinkle injections target dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement, while dermal fillers add volume and address static wrinkles and loss of facial contours.

How should one choose between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers?

The choice between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers depends on the specific concerns an individual wants to address. Anti-wrinkle injections are ideal for dynamic wrinkles, such as crow's feet and forehead lines, while dermal fillers are suitable for adding volume to areas like the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds. A consultation with us can help determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on individual goals.
