Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections can help achieve a well-rested, youthful appearance.


The repeated use of facial muscles throughout our lifetime causes the skin to become creased in areas of greatest use and you may start to notice the appearance of fine lines under the eyes, crow’s feet, and wrinkles on the forehead. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin slows down and these areas of overuse become damaged, and the lines become permanent. Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the movement of muscles in these areas, preventing the skin becoming creased allowing the area to recover resulting in deep lines being softened and even helping soft lines to fade away in some instances.

Anti-wrinkle injections are utilised to soften the appearance of deep and dynamic lines and sometimes erase fine lines all together.

The injections cause interfering of communication between the nerve impulse and the muscle. Small quantities are injected directly into the muscle which can make the final result look natural therefore making the treatment very safe and effective.

Anti-wrinkle injections contain a neurotoxin, which blocks the release of acetylcholine, and when injected accurately into the muscle, it interferes with the signal, which prevents the muscle from fully contracting. The injections, which are purified and used in very small quantities, are directly injected into the muscle. It cannot produce any permanent damage or travel within the body.

On average, the results from treatment tend to last 3 – 4 months although some patients may experience results that last a little shorter or longer than this time.

The Process

Prior to treatment, you will attend an Aesthetic Consultation with our Facial Aesthetic Clinician. Here we will discuss with you in detail your medical history, concerns and desired result and go through treatment, ensuring you are a safe and suitable candidate for ant-wrinkle injection treatment.

On the day of treatment we will review your treatment plan before proceeding to treat the areas agreed.

Small quantities of anti-wrinkle injection are injected directly into the muscle.

If this is your first treatment with us, we will ask to see you in clinic again 2 – 3 weeks following treatment to ensure we have achieved the desired results from your treatment.

I recently had permanent lens procedure carried out by Mr Ghosh. Having glasses as a child and contact lenses for many years, this has been an absolute revelation for me. Mr Ghosh was absolutely brilliant and very professional from the start. All the staff are lovely and especially like to thank Dianne, Anita and the team. This has changed my life for the better thanks.

I visited the My Hearing Clinic knowing I needed a hearing assessment but thinking it was just a build up of wax. It came as a shock that I heard a hearing loss which needed addressing. The service I received from Andrew was outstanding! He explained my hearing loss and went through all my options. He recognised that it was a lot of information to take in so made a follow up appointment, giving me sufficient time to think about what I wanted to do. From start to finish the service has been excellent, efficient, professional and friendly from the moment you walk through the door and meet Lee. The clinic is well located, parking on site, high standard of cleanliness. Definitely a recommendation from me. Thank you!
