Anti-wrinkle injections are muscle relaxant solutions which stop the muscles of facial expressions from contracting.

Anti-wrinkle injections smooth the dynamic wrinkles (non-permanent facial lines) which are produced by our facial expressions. Overtime, repeated facial expressions can lead to the formation of permanent static lines, making our face to look aged. Anti-wrinkle injections are an increasingly popular way to address this concern.

This is a minimally invasive treatment that uses very small needles to target the specific muscle and give a more relaxed and fresher look.

Typically results are seen 3 to 14 days post-injection, allowing for the effect to develop, so remember that the desired results are not instant.

The effects usually last 3-4 months, but some people report improvements that can last up to 6 months.
