Anti-Wrinkle Injections, can be a great non-surgical alternative to a facelift and are specifically designed to help smooth out the common signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin for a more refined, youthful appearance. As we get older and our skin loses its elasticity, the frequent contraction of our facial muscles can create folds leaving our faces with expression lines and wrinkles. Anti-Wrinkle Injections use a highly purified protein to block the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This results in the muscles relaxing and stops them from contracting, helping to smooth out lines and tighten your skin for an overall rejuvenated appearance. Because of the use of a very fine needle, anti-wrinkle injectables are incredibly precise, allowing for highly targeted areas of concern to be treated.
All treatments are tailored to the individual, personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Safe for all skin types and tones
In the fight against ageing, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are becoming more and more popular for both men and women. At SkinSpirit we offer a range of injectable treatments, carried out by highly qualified and experienced medical practitioners to achieve natural-looking results. We provide free consultations ahead of any anti-wrinkle or dermal filler appointment, ensuring all your questions are answered.
In addition to hiding the visible signs of ageing, anti-wrinkle injections are also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Treatment can be used to temporarily block the sweat glands, therefore reducing the amount of sweat produced. We can provide advice and guidance regarding a treatment plan to ease the symptoms of this condition.
At SkinSpirit, we only use market-leading, safe, tried and tested products including Juvederm and Allergan products.
More about Anti-Wrinkle Injections & Dermal Fillers…
Anti-wrinkle injections work by injecting small amounts of a purified protein into the muscle. This, in turn, relaxes the muscle, reducing the depth of lines and wrinkles. Injections are often combined with dermal fillers to achieve an even smoother, more youthful complexion. Dermal fillers are used to plump and restore volume to the skin and are not a muscle relaxant.
Treatment time takes around 15 – 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Your practitioner will remain with you the whole time and you will be made to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. All treatments are carried out in our hygienically sterile aesthetic treatment rooms, offering complete privacy and discretion.
How long is the recovery time?
Most Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatments take approximately 30 minutes. Results can be seen within 3 – 5 days but will reach their maximum at around 10 – 14 days. The treatment results can last approximately 3 – 5 months. Following an Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatment, you must remain upright for at least 4 hours, avoid exercise for 24 hours and avoid exposure to any excessive heat (such as saunas, sunbeds or steam rooms) for 3 days. Please note that recovery from any treatment is unique to each patient and something that will be discussed in detail with your Treatment Coordinator.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face that are prone to the common signs of ageing. They can effectively treat:
- Crow’s feet
- Loose skin

Please keep in mind that the concerns that can be treated with Anti-Wrinkle Injections are unique to each patient and something that should be discussed with your personal Treatment Coordinator.
Anti-wrinkle injection treatments
Relax the muscle under the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, which have developed as collagen production has depleted.
Dermal Fillers are a temporary volumiser injected into the skin to fill facial lines and wrinkles, enhance lips and create facial contouring (e.g. to the cheeks or nose) and revitalise the skin.
Dermal fillers are used on lines and wrinkles that remain present on the skin even when the muscle underneath is relaxed with 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 ageing skin.

How do injectables work?
The best way to explain injectables is this: “Anti-wrinkle treatments work as a shield between the brain and the muscle so that, even if your brain is telling a muscle to move–whether this is on purpose or because of misfiring neurons–the muscle will stay still.”
Non-Surgical Solution to Lines and Wrinkles
Many men and women can experience a flawless complexion without the need for surgical enhancement. Injectables are minimally invasive and can help with wrinkles in the forehead, neck and around the mouth.
Treat a Drooping Brow
Also called “Brow Ptosis,” drooping brow can cause you to look unhappy and tired even when you are feeling awake and happy. In some instances, there are also biological reasons for the droop which could be improved by eating more vegetables, the exercise of your facial muscles, etc. Many times, however, intervention is needed. Administering injectables results in the relaxing of the brow muscles and, when administered correctly, can keep them aloft.
Stop Excessive Sweating
“Hyperhidrosis” is defined by the National Library of Medicine as “a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.”
Injectables can prevent directions given by the brain from reaching the intended muscle, it can also act as a shield for sweat glands. It is particularly helpful for excessive localized sweating in the patient’s armpits, feet or hands. Make sure to tell them that they’ll need to repeat the procedure every few months but the smart money says they’ll choose the treatment over the skin conditions they risk developing from having to walk around in damp clothing and shoes all day.
Reduce Migraine Pain
You may have read up on the use of injectables as a treatment for migraines. Many migraine sufferers make the mistake of thinking that the drug stops the migraine itself. It doesn’t. It will, however, reduce many of their major symptoms like sensitivity to light and nausea, making the migraine easier to deal with.
Treatment for Bells Palsy
There are two options for treating Bells Palsy with cosmetic injectables:
Administering the treatment to the paralyzed side of the patient’s face–this can help relax facial muscles that might have tightened up and become painful as well as preventing unwanted facial tics.
Administering the treatment to the non-paralyzed side of the patient’s face–this benefit is more cosmetic in nature. This technique can help relax the movements on the dominant side of the face. This helps give the face a more balanced look even when the patient is talking or moving their face a lot.
Stop Eye Twitch/Squinting
Sometimes an eye twitch can be rapid and/or constant. Other times the twitch can cause a permanent spasm of the muscle, holding it in a tense position for a prolonged period of time. In addition to being annoying and sometimes painful, these twitches can also interfere with your vision. Injectables can be used to help relax facial muscles and reduce twitching.
