Advantages of Anti-wrinkle Injections

The use of anti-wrinkle injections is a commonly used aesthetic treatment to reduce and to prevent wrinkles and lines. It may be used as part of a treatment plan when treating the face as a whole.

It has truly revolutionized the treatment of ageing skin.
It is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed by doctors in the UK
Anti-wrinkle injections are unparalleled for the treatment of forehead lines. In fact they may have a similar effect as a surgical brow lift.
Anti-wrinkle injections are excellent for removing wrinkles around the eyes, and the under-eye bulge, to open the eyes up.

It is an extremely safe procedure. In our clinics we use it with great success to treat dynamic wrinkles (those lines that form in skin where the underlying muscles are used frequently e.g. around the eyes, on the forehead and the area between the eyes

Anti-wrinkle Injection procedure

Normally this is a quick procedure, however, numbing cream is available at request. Small injections are placed under the skin with an ultra fine needle placing a tiny amount of the product in the facial muscles causing the wrinkles. 5- 10 minutes after the procedure you will appear normal and are ready to leave.

Anti-wrinkle Injections Aftercare

You are advised to stay upright and to try to exercise the areas treated for 2-4 hours following the injections. Avoid massaging these areas as this will prevent diffusion of Botulinum toxin solution to surrounding muscles.


When injected correctly by qualified practitioners injectables are safe treatments but still require attention to detail and good aftercare.

Individuals with a history on a neuromuscular disorder such as multiple sclerosis (MS) or Guillian-Barre Syndrome are not candidates for Botulinum Toxin A. You cannot receive Botulinum Toxin A if you have an infection where the Botulinum Toxin A will be injected, are allergic to any of the ingredients in Botulinum Toxin A or are pregnant. Some conditions may increase the chance of infection. Our doctor will review your medical history before you receive Botulinum Toxin A.

Botulinum toxin contains a highly purified protein, when injected in to the muscles the product relaxes the area and result in a reduced muscle activity. It therefore softens lines and wrinkles. It takes approximately 1 to 2 weeks to see the effect of the injected Botulinum toxin.

No. This is a reversible treatment and there are no permanent effects. In fact, your skin is likely to have benefited from the period of reduced muscle contraction, as wrinkle formation is slower during this time.

You are advised to stay upright and to try to exercise the areas treated for 2-4 hours following the injections. Avoid massaging these areas as this will prevent diffusion of Botulinum toxin solution to surrounding muscles.

I can’t recommend EA clinic enough. I have had several procedures there now (vaser liposuction, mole removal and peels) and between Gill and Dr Anthony I have been so well looked after. They are consistently professional, passionate and clear in the options they provide you. Whether it is consultation, procedure or aftercare Dr Anthony always has so much time to make you feel at ease and fully informed. Both Gill and Dr Anthony are also friendly which is so lovely and welcoming as a patient. Overall I feel so much happier and confident since seeing the team at EA Clinic.
