Some people may find that they are more prone to wrinkles, frown lines and laughter lines on their face. If you would like to reduce the appearance of these lines, we can provide a range of fast and virtually painless treatments. Wrinkle-relaxing injections typically reduce the appearance of wrinkles by about 80%, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Expert and supportive Consultants to help you make a decision that’s right for you
Wrinkle-relaxing injections work by paralysing the nerve supply to muscles, thereby restricting their movement. We know that some patients are apprehensive about needles, so we are always happy to reassure you that this is a relatively painless procedure with minimal side effects and that we do apply the numbing cream to the area to be treated beforehand.
If you would like to discuss your options for wrinkle-relaxing treatments, book a consultation with one of our specialists today.
The guide price is based on the usual clinical needs of patients. For more information, please see our terms and conditions.
What does wrinkle-relaxing treatment involve?
During your consultation, your Consultant will discuss your problem areas, the possible treatments and any concerns you may have. Pre-treatment photos will be taken and then your Consultant will apply numbing cream to the area. At this stage, your Consultant will mark the sites to be injected and after cleaning the area the treatment will be administered in the form of fine injections using very fine needles. Anti-bruising cream is then applied to the treated areas.
Once your injections have taken place you should not rub or massage the area for four to six hours.
Will it hurt?
It is common to have small raised bumps of skin at the injection site which may be slightly red and will go down about 20 minutes after the treatment. Bruising may also occasionally occur, but this will resolve quickly. It is also quite common to experience a mild headache after wrinkle-relaxing injections to the face. This can be easily treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
When will I see results?
Wrinkle-relaxing does not work immediately and can take between 3-14 days to take full effect and lasts on average for about four months, but this varies significantly between individuals.
Can I have wrinkle-relaxing injections if I’m breastfeeding?
Pregnant and breastfeeding women, patients taking anti-coagulant medication, patients with an infection at the planned injection site as well as anyone with allergies to egg albumin or a known allergy to Botulinum Toxin should not receive wrinkle-relaxing injections.
