Anti wrinkle injections are used to relax the facial muscles which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We can treat the upper third of face which is categorised as three areas, frown, forehead and crows feet. Individual areas in isolation can also be treat, your treatment requirement will be discussed at the consultation process which is always required at least 48 hours before treatment.
Anti wrinkle treatments can also be used to correct chin dimpling, bunny lines, a gummy smile and underarm sweating. Our Advanced Aesthetic nurse can also create a ‘lip flip’ and a Nefertiti neck lift with this treatment too.
Frequently asked questions
How do anti wrinkle injections work?
Anti wrinkle injections work to relax the muscles by blocking nerve impulses that cause the wrinkle causing muscle contractions, creating a smoother and improved appearance. All our anti wrinkle injections are prescribed at the point of consultation by our Independent Nurse Prescriber.

A very fine needle is used and generally this treatment is not painful and well tolerated without topical anaesthetic however numbing cream can be applied if you feel this would help with nerves
