Most anti-wrinkle treatments can be performed in a short visit, making them a convenient option for busy schedules.
Wrinkles are a natural part of ageing but that doesn’t mean that we have to live with noticeable lines. Anti-Wrinkle Treatment involves using Botox®. We can visibly reduce wrinkles by stopping certain facial muscles from contracting and prevent the skin from creasing.
During the consultation will be your opportunity to discuss your main concerns, we’ll then go through what anti-wrinkle injections are, and the treatment options available to you. Our practitioner will then take photos, mark the face and talk you through the process.
Next, it’s treatment day. The treatment takes between 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas we’re treating. You should come the treatment with a clean face, free from make-up and moisturizer, but this will all be discussed with you during your consultation.
After two weeks, you have a review. If a top up is needed, then it will be given to you on that day. Results can be seen within a couple of days after your treatment.

What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are primarily caused by the natural aging process, which includes a decrease in collagen and elastin production in the skin. Other factors like sun exposure, smoking, and facial expressions can also contribute to wrinkle formation.
How does Botox work to reduce wrinkles?
Botox (Botulinum toxin) works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. When the muscles can’t contract, dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines become less noticeable.
Are there any side effects of anti-wrinkle treatments?
Side effects can vary depending on the treatment. Common side effects may include redness, swelling, bruising, or temporary discomfort at the injection site. These typically resolve within a few days. Consult with a healthcare professional for specific information on potential side effects.
How long do the effects of anti-wrinkle treatments last?
The duration of the effects depends on the type of treatment. Botox effects typically last 3-4 months.
