Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the UK for both men and women. They are used as an anti-ageing treatments to reduce dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet, but can also be used to treat excessive sweating and migraines and tension headaches. These injections works to relax the muscles by preventing the nerve signals from reaching the muscles.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Unlike dermal fillers which work by filling lines to enhance facial features, anti-ageing injectables work by relaxing muscles in the face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, resulting in more youthful and rejuvenated skin. The most common areas to have these injections are around the eyes to tackle crows feet, on the forehead to reduce frown lines, and around the mouth to diminish marionette lines.
During your anti-wrinkle treatment at Firvale Clinic, a very fine needle will be used to inject the muscles of the desired area of the face. The treatment does not require recovery time so you can continue with your normal routine following your appointment. You may see slight redness, bruising and swelling following treatment but this will settle down in a few days. You should start to see some changes after a few days but it will take 2 weeks to see the full effect, with results lasting between 3-4 months. As these injections are not permanent, the treatment will need to be repeated for the desired results to be maintained.
