Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Our expert team will subtly treat your problem areas creating a natural soft, smooth look which will have you smiling every time you see your reflection.  With our decades of experience we will remove decades from your skin.   

How does it work? 

Overtime, repeated facial expressions can lead to the formation of permanent static lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections are muscle relaxants that smooth the dynamic wrinkles (non-permanent facial lines) which are produced by our facial expressions.

 

Does it hurt?
This is a minimally invasive treatment that uses very small needles to target the specific muscle and give a relaxed, fresh look.

 

How many treatments do I need? 
This is not a permanent treatment . The anti-wrinkle injections start to work on day 4 or 5, with full effect at day 14. Most patients will need retreating at 3-4 months, some may only need 6-monthly treatments Those who have fast metabolism may need more frequent treatments.
