Wrinkle smoothing injections
It is suitable for:
- Furrowed eyebrows
- Relaxing lines and wrinkles
- Forehead lines/frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Lines in the neck
- Dimpling on the chin
- Excessive perspiration
Anti Wrinkle Treatment works to relax the muscles used when you frown, squint or smile. Facial expression such as this creases the skin and causes lines and wrinkles to appear in the specific areas of facial movement e.g. frown lines. With ageing and slower collagen production, the problem becomes more obvious as the skin cannot repair so well.
Anti wrinkle treatment
Anti Wrinkle Treatment itself is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium.
It is injected into the muscles using an extremely fine needle, where it acts to reduce the muscle activity and therefore smoothes out lines and wrinkles. The sensation is a mild stinging, so there is no need for local anaesthesia or pain killers.
The treatment itself is very quick, only taking around 10 minutes and you can return to normal activities immediately. You really can have Anti Wrinkle Treatment in a lunch hour.
The improvement is not permanant, it normally lasts around 4-6 months; at which point a further treatment would be arranged to maintain the benefit.
Injecting into frown lines is a proven successful treatment. Results are visible within hours, but the full effect can take up to a fortnight to be complete.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is anti wrinkle iinjection?
The treatment is a natural purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form over time. It works by temporarily reducing the contractions of those muscles that can cause permanent lines to create a smoothed, rejuvenated appearance. When injected into a muscle, it temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract. Only minute quantities are injected and only the injected muscle will be affected.
How long does last?
Anit wrinkle injections last for approximately 3-6 months.
What areas does it work on?
The treatment is used to treat facial lines caused primarily by facial muscles. An example of this is deep creases between the eyebrows, crows feet wrinkles and forehead lines. The appearance of these lines can be dramatically softened with the use of anti wrinkle injection.
In addition, anti wrinkle injection can also be used in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, where it is injected into the underarm area to stop problem perspiration.
How long does it take?
The anti-wrinkle treatment itself takes just a few minutes. You will see an improvement in the appearance of your skin within days and the results can last up to 3-5 months. In your consultation, your aesthetic nurse will assess your muscle movement by asking you to frown or smile. This will determine the injection site to achieve the best results for you. anti wrinkle is then administered by several tiny injections which literally feel like a pin-prick. No anaesthetic is required and you can return to work or day to day activities immediately.

It has US FDA and European approval (including France and Switzerland). It is also now called VISTABEL.

When will I see results?
Usually on day 2, though it will take up to 14 days for the full results to be apparent.
What else should I know?
To complement your treatment, you may also consider the use of dermal fillers i.e.Juvederm, which add plumpness to laughter lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or deep creases. You may also be considering a surgical approach to holding back the years e.g.face lift or brow lift. anti wrinkle injection is an excellent complement to these to enable you to get the most out of your treatment.
