Express yourself – and worry less
about about lines and wrinkles.
As we age, it’s natural for our faces to get lined. We’ve always had ‘dynamic wrinkles’ appearing and immediately disappearing from an early age as we use our facial muscles, but as our skin becomes drier, thinner, less elastic and more damaged, they become permanent.
Thankfully, Anti-wrinkle injections have become a popular means of helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and also preventing new lines from forming.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections have been used in several medical procedures. Specifically in cosmetic applications, they are used to prevent the development of wrinkles and fine lines. This involves injecting a filler into the facial muscles: the filler is made of Botulinum Toxin – or Botox as it’s most commonly called – a neurotoxin, a chemical that blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles.
It is injected painlessly and precisely into areas of the skin. It takes about two weeks to take effect, and your muscle contractions will return to normal over 3-6 months after your body has also cleared the Botulinum toxin from your body.
We recommend watching our video testimonial above to see how quick and easy an anti-wrinkle procedure will be.

Where is anti-wrinkle injected?
Anti-wrinkle is usually injected in the forehead, between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, between the nose and mouth, and into the crease running from the corners of the mouth down the side of the chin.
Is it safe?
Anti-wrinkle is injected with small needles, and used only in small volumes, so there is no risk of any systemic side-effects. However, you will be given a thorough consultation and assessment prior to any treatment. In addition, the treatment is not advisable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, for example.
When will I see results?
In most cases, the patient will notice a gradual disappearance of fine lines and softening of wrinkles within three to five days. Additionally, results are often visible two weeks after treatment. Also, the results of anti-wrinkle injections will be visible for at least four and up to six months after treatment.
