What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as ‘Botox’ , short for Botulinum toxin. This is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out wrinkles. It is the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatment for the removal of wrinkles.*

Tell me more...

With a quick procedure and undeniable results, anti-wrinkle injections are the most popular cosmetic treatment available. Thousands of men and women receive anti-wrinkle injections in the UK every year. By relaxing the facial muscles, wrinkles are made less visible; this results in a natural, rejuvenated look.

More FAQs


Who should have Anti-wrinkle injections?

They are the treatment of choice for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes which they wish to reduce.

What will the treatment involve?

The treatment will involve a doctor making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes. Dr Leah’s Botulinum toxin of choice is Botox®.

Does it hurt?

The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?

Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.

What happens after treatment?

You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.

After 4-10 days you will notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles, and this result will last approximately 3-4 months.*

What areas can benefit from an anti-wrinkle injection?

Anti – wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places:
  • Forehead/brow
  • Between the eyes
  • Sides of the eyes
How long do the effects of an anti-wrinkle injection last?

The results usually last for around four months, after which you may wish to return for another treatment.*

Is ‘Botox’ the only option for people who want to get rid of their wrinkles?

Not at all, there are various options. It may be that dermal fillers or facial peels or dermaroller are possible alternatives for you. Before you undergo any Dr Leah injectable treatment, you will be invited for a FREE consultation session with one of our experienced medical professionals who will help you determine which treatment is suitable for you.

What are the possible side effects?

Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.

Cautions / contraindications

You should not have this treatment if:
  • The injection site is infected
  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis).
For more information please contact info@drleah.co.uk

Full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation.

Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.

Aftercare

Keeping your facial muscles active after the procedure will help the treatment to take effect. Try to avoid any unnecessary touching of your face during the 24 hour period directly after your treatment.

Do not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
