Anti-wrinkle injections are, as the name suggest, a way to prevent and reduce wrinkles – most commonly on your face.

Put simply, they are an effective, affordable, safe (when performed by trained medical professionals) way to eliminate unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Botox injections use a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA, which is a naturally occuring, purified protein that can be used to relax muscles. By blocking the muscles from the signals that cause them to contract, they are less likely to form lines on the face as a result of smiling, frowning or other expressions. It isn’t a permanent procedure, but results can be expected to last for 3 to 4 months.

Botox should only ever be administered by a doctor and performed by trained medical professionals. Whilst very safe in the right hands, it can be dangerous if administered incorrectly.

There are many benefits to choosing Botox as your preferred anti-wrinkle treatment, including:

  • Long lasting results, usually only needing top up treatments every 3-4 months.
  • You can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, eyes and forehead without the need for surgical intervention, which can be much more expensive and carry greater risks.
  • You will start to see results after the first session. Some treatments can take a lot of time before results are visible, but with Botox you can expect to see peak results within 10 days of your first session. The results will then improve further over time as part of a proper treatment plan.
Most people don’t experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure, however there are options to numb the skin beforehand. You should speak to us about this in your consultation to discover what options you have.

During the procedure, our doctors will administer tiny amounts of the botulinum toxin into your problem areas. This is done using a very thin needle, which many patients cannot feel or report no discomfort. The amount of injections will depend on how many areas you are having treated, how large they are and the severity of your lines and wrinkles.

The procedure will usually begin to take effect within 3 or 4 days of the injections, improving over time and potentially lasting up to 3 or 4 months before another treatment session is required.

In preparation for anti-wrinkle injections, you must:

  • Inform the doctor of any medication you are on during the consultation phase, as you may need to stop some or all of it a week before your procedure.
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol for at least 48 hours before the treatment.
  • Cleanse your skin before heading to your appointment using a gentle cleanser and water, and avoid wearing makeup for as long as possible before the procedure.

If in doubt, call us ahead of your procedure or check the FAQ’s on this page. Try to be fully transparent at your consultation so that your doctor can create the best possible treatment plan for you.

Ideally, you want to be as relaxed as possible for the 24 hours after you procedure, but as a minimum you should avoid exercise, saunas, hot tubs, sunbeds, hot showers or lying down for at least 3 to 4 hours and avoid facial or head massages for a full 24 hours.

You should also avoid rubbing or other pressure on the treatment areas.

Our doctors will provide full aftercare instructions as part of your treatment, but if you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What are the side effects of anti-wrinkle injections?
Short-term side effects can include some redness, swelling or irritation to the skin of the area that has undergone treatment. This is normal and usually nothing to be concerned about. You may also notice a headache or some flu-like symptoms for the first 24 hours after treatment. 
Overall, Botox is considered a safe treatment. Many of the associated risks are thought to be less prevalent in cosmetic botox applications than when used for medical treatment. This is due to the tiny amount of botox being used for anti-wrinkle injections.

One of the biggest risk factors when undergoing botox injections is the practioner. You must only ever see a trained doctor to administer this procedure.

There are other risk associated with the treatment, which differ to the individual. For that reason, it’s best to book a consultation with us to discuss your personal situation and what you want to achieve.
