Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Banish the signs of ageing, with our trusted anti-wrinkle injections. This quick and effective ‘tweakment’ offers a convenient way to smooth out lines and wrinkles without the need for invasive surgery. 

Anti-wrinkle injections are made from purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It’s become a popular method used to safely soften crow’s feet around the eyes, relax stern frown lines, lift drooping eyebrows, reduce the appearance of chin creases and smooth Marionette lines around the mouth, temporarily relaxing the facial muscles for a younger, happier and fresher appearance. At SkinSpaceUK, we can even use this powerful treatment to dramatically reduce hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). 

At SkinSpaceUK, you’re in safe hands as our practitioners are highly experienced in administering anti-wrinkle injections. With no downtime required, it’s the perfect lunchtime pick-me-up for fuller, more youthful skin.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections – How Does it Work?

Having anti-wrinkle injections is a quick process that doesn’t require the use of anaesthesia. You will first be offered an initial consultation with our SkinSpaceUK cosmetic nurse to assess your suitability for treatment and discuss what you want to achieve. At SkinSpaceUK, we pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients a personalised service.

Once the appropriate, bespoke dosage has been calculated, then the SkinSpaceUK practitioner will administer a series of small injections into the area that you are having treated. 

Treatments typically last between 10 – 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Most clients are in and out of the clinic, without any downtime.



    Anti-Wrinkle Injection

    Does it Hurt?

    The treatment is not considered very painful as the needles that SkinSpaceUK use are super fine, although some clients report a level of discomfort at the needle point. Following treatment, any discomfort is usually minimal and brief.

    How Long Does Treatment Last?

    The treatment usually takes on average three to five days to begin to work. The treatment can take up to two full weeks to reach optimal results.
    Anti-wrinkle injections are a temporary procedure and at first, you may find that your treatment results will last approximately three or four months. If you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended (every three to four months) the longevity of each treatment might last longer.

    What Are the Possible Side Effects and Risks?

    While cosmetic medicine is not without complications or unwanted side effects, we do take every precaution to minimise and limit any complications to offer a safe and comfortable service. Reported side effects include but are not limited to the following: discomfort, bruising, swelling, dull heavy sensation, occasional headache, Ptosis (droop) of eyebrow or eyelid.
    Individual results can vary and are not guaranteed.

    How Can I Prepare for the Treatment?

    If you are prone to bruising we recommend taking Arnica tablets around four weeks before treatment.
    Avoid any facial treatments one week before and after treatment.
    Please arrive with the area to be treated clean and free of make-up.
    Please advise us of any medications including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Having anti-wrinkle injections with certain other medicines may cause side effects.
    Advise us about any muscle or nerve conditions, such as MND or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Myasthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton Syndrome, as you may be at increased risk of side effects including difficulty swallowing and difficulty breathing from typical doses of anti-wrinkle injections.
    Advise us about any medical conditions, including: plans to have surgery, had surgery on your face, have trouble raising your eyebrows, drooping eyelids, any other abnormal facial change, are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, are breast-feeding or plan to.

    What Does the Aftercare Involve?

    Immediately after treatment, there may be redness and swelling to the treated area. This is a normal reaction and usually settles in a few hours.
    To minimise any discomfort following treatment, ice packs and Arnica cream can be applied to the treated areas. Avoid lying down for at least four hours to prevent the product from migrating into other areas.
    You can continue your regular skin care routine, including touching your face to cleanse and moisturise it. However, it’s best to wait at least six hours (ideally 24 hours) before applying make-up and massaging or rubbing the skin.
    You can gently wash your face straight after having treatment However, for seven days after the procedure you should avoid facials, massages and other treatments that put direct pressure on the face
    You may experience tightness when the forehead is treated; this usually subsides after five or six days.
    If the underarms are treated (hyperhidrosis), use a powder instead of deodorant for 24 hours after treatment to reduce skin irritation. Heat can increase the chances of bruising at the injection site. You should avoid hot showers, baths and hot tubs for 24 hours after having treatment. It’s also best to avoid strenuous aerobic exercise for 24 hours.
    It’s best to avoid drinking alcohol for a day or two before and after the procedure. As alcohol increases fluid retention and thins the blood, it can worsen the mild bruising at the injected site.
    Although exposure to UV light won’t affect the results of your treatment , it’s the number one cause of wrinkles. We recommend using sunscreen SPF30+ at all times.
    We advise our patients to avoid lying down or bending down for 4 hours after treatment or flying for 24 – 48 hours after treatment. The changes in air pressure can affect the results of Botox® by moving the substance to other muscles in the face.
