What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Overactive facial muscles, especially between the eyebrows, forehead and around the eyes can often contribute to the formation of active facial lines and wrinkles. With the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin with aging, or as a result of sun damage, these lines become increasingly apparent and permanent.
The use of anti-wrinkle injection to relax the underlying muscles is an effective method to improve these lines and wrinkles. In some individuals, the use of dermal filler treatment in combination with anti-wrinkle injections will be necessary to achieve the optimum rejuvenation. Skin rejuvenation programmes are also available to enhance overall improvements.

Who shouldn't have Injectable Treatments?

If you are taking certain medications; such as aminoglycoside antibiotics, spectinomycin or other medicines that interfere with neuromuscular transmission.
if you have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis).
if you have infection at the proposed injection site.
If you are allergic to botox or dysport (hypersensitive to botulinum toxin type A or any other ingredients in the drug)
What are the common side effects?
Most side effects are associated with the injection (redness, stinging sensation, rarely bruising) and will be very short lived maybe only hours.
What is the difference between an anti-Wrinkle and a dermal filler injection?
- The line and wrinkle injection treatment available at YoungOne Clinic relaxes the muscle under the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles which have developed as the collagen has been worn away.
The Dermal Filler is a temporary volumiser injected into the skin that will fill facial lines and wrinkles, enhance lips and create facial contouring e.g. to the cheeks.
Dermal fillers are used on lines and wrinkles that remain present on the skin when the muscle underneath is relaxed with our treatment.
Dermal Fillers are a fluid form of Hyaluronic Acid which is a protein found between the cells of all living organisms and is a component of Collagen. As we age our body produces less of this acid which contributes to the ageing process with the appearance of dry and thinner skin.
What is the aftercare?
Rubbing or massaging the area treated
Any “facial” beauty treatments
Some patients experience a slight headache after their injections, which can be managed with paracetamol if required. Following this period you can use your normal skin care routine.
