The muscles on our faces allow us to express a range of emotions. But over time, the repeated use of the same facial muscles can cause lines and wrinkles to occur, particularly to the frown area, forehead and crow's feet, which can make you look unhappy, worried or angry even when you're not!

What are 'Wrinkle Relaxation Injections'?
Essentially, this product is a naturally occurring protein extract and is generally well-tolerated in the minute levels administered for cosmetic use. The protein relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a refreshed look. The active ingredient is derived from bacteria in sterile laboratory conditions and is a prescription-only medication. The treatments usually take between 15-45 minutes depending on the treatment requested. An initial consultation is required to assess suitability for the medication.
How does it work?
A very small dose of the ‘Anti-Wrinkle Injection’ is administered into the specific frown muscles causing lines and wrinkles. This temporarily prevents the contraction of muscles that causes frown lines. The product blocks the nerve ending signals resulting in a reduction of muscle activity. Once the muscles are relaxed, the overlying wrinkles may soften and reduce.
When are results seen?
Most people start to see results from ‘Anti Wrinkle Injections’ from 1-2 days after their treatment, with the full result settling in by day 14. If you decide not to continue repeating your treatments, your muscle activity will gradually return and your wrinkles will slowly reappear. Your wrinkles will not be worse than before you began treatment with ‘Anti-Wrinkle Injections'. If you don’t receive the result you expected, the treatment isn’t a failure, you may simply need more product due to a number of factors we will discuss and explain at your consultation. Although results are usually pleasing we can adjust your dose so it’s just right.
How long will the effects last?
When the frown lines are relaxed after a treatment, the skin around the area will look smooth and less wrinkled. The ‘Anti-Wrinkle Injections’ allows the untreated areas to move as normal. You will still be able to laugh, smile and frown, just with less wrinkling of the skin in the treated area. These ‘Anti-wrinkle Injections’ usually last approximately 4 months. Each individual is different and results cannot be guaranteed. Regular treatments may help improve the longevity of the treatment’s effects.
Are there side effects?
As with any cosmetic medical treatment, occasional side effects can occur. These can include headaches, pain, bruising, swelling, itchiness, a feeling of pins and needles or redness at the injection site and flu-like symptoms. Muscle weakness such as drooping eyelids or eyebrows along with swelling of the eyelids or eye muscles may also occur. If you experience any of these unwanted side effects you should consult contact us straight away. Although uncommon – these side effects can occur and will be discussed at your consultation.
