What is anti-wrinkle treatment by injection?

As we get older, our faces are likely to show the effects of time. Whether it is from simply laughing and frowning, or smoking and sun damage, our faces are prone to showing fine lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle treatments from Spire Cosmetic Surgery aim to smooth out these facial wrinkles; helping to turn back the clock a few years.

Benefits of anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle treatment is a popular choice for those who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The benefits of having anti-wrinkle treatment are likely to differ between individuals, but may include:

  • Reducing down the visible effects of aging
  • Feeling as though you look younger, or closer to your actual age
  • An overall improved appearance
  • Greater self-esteem and self-confidence

What types of anti-wrinkle injection exist?

There are a number of different types of treatment for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Common procedures include muscle relaxants and dermal fillers.

  • Muscle Relaxants – Muscle relaxing injections use the botulinum toxin to block the nerve impulses that cause muscle contraction. They are a popular temporary non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment. Relaxants work by blocking the nerve impulses that cause muscle contraction, leading to smoother looking skin.
  • Dermal Fillers – Fillers (such as Juvéderm®)  are used to plump out wrinkles and laughter lines in the face. Juvéderm® - made from hyaluronic acid (which naturally occurs in the skin) – is a non-surgical treatment frequently used for smile lines.
    Both types of anti-wrinkle injections take about 15 minutes to complete, but this can vary depending on the number of wrinkles treated. Muscle relaxants generally take effect over a week or two and last three to four months, whilst dermal fillers can last for up to a year.

After the anti-wrinkle injections

As anti-wrinkle treatment by injection is a non-surgical treatment, there is virtually no recovery time after treatment, meaning you can normally fit in your injections with your day-to-day activities.

Are anti-wrinkle injections available on the NHS?

The NHS will only consider cosmetic treatment in specific circumstances, and generally this only applies to surgery. Therefore, anti-wrinkle treatment by injection will normally only be administered from a private hospital or clinic, such as Spire Healthcare.
