What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as ‘Botox’, short for Botulinum toxin. This is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently softening and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Who should have anti wrinkle injections?
They may be an appropriate treatment for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes, which they wish to reduce. Henry will discuss the most suitable treatment for you at your consultation appointment.
What will the treatment involve?
The treatment will involve Henry making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved.
Are anti wrinkle injections safe?
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified and trained professional, the risks are extremely minimal. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
What happens after treatment?
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours. After 4-10 days you should notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles and this result may last approximately 3-4 months.
What areas can benefit from anti wrinkle injections?
Anti – wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places: Forehead/brow * Between the eyes * Sides of the eyes.
How long do the results of an anti wrinkle injection last?
The results usually last for around four months, after which you may wish to return for another treatment.
Is ‘Botox’ the only option for people who want to reduce the appearance of their wrinkles?
Not at all, there are various options. It may be that dermal fillers or facial peels are possible alternatives for you. Henry can discuss this with you.
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.

Cautions / contraindications and aftercare
You should not have this treatment if: The injection site is infected * You are allergic to any of the ingredients * You are pregnant or breastfeeding * You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis) Full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation. Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with Jacy or Henry, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Keeping your facial muscles active after the procedure will help the treatment to take effect. Try to avoid any unnecessary touching of your face during the 24 hour period directly after your treatment. Do not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
