Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections at SkinSpirit

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 - Botox,  to block the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This results in the muscles relaxing, preventing them from contracting, helping to smooth out lines and tighten your skin for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 

Because of the use of a very fine needle, Anti-Wrinkle Injections are incredibly precise, allowing for highly targeted areas of concern to be treated. At SkinSpirit all treatments are tailored to the individual, working with you to achieve your desired results.

Top 8 Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections 

  • A non-surgical solution to reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • All injectable treatments are carried out by our highly qualified aesthetic Doctors
  • Natural results for a more youthful appearance

Treatment Details

Anti-Wrinkle Injections or Botox, are a non-surgical solution used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. At SkinSpirit all our injectable treatments are carried out by our highly experienced aesthetic Doctors in the privacy of our beautiful treatment rooms. 

In the fight against ageing, Anti-Wrinkle Injections are becoming more and more popular for both men and women. At SkinSpirit we offer a range of injectable treatments to achieve natural-looking results. We provide free consultations ahead of any appointment, ensuring all your questions are answered.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections do not require an anaesthetic and your aesthetic Doctor will ensure you remain comfortable throughout your treatment. Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the muscles and within a few days, fine lines and wrinkles become less pronounced and visible. The effect from treatment usually lasts around 6 months after which time, repeat injections will be required if the results are to be maintained.

At SkinSpirit we can recommend a treatment programme as well as home care products and supplements to further support your anti-ageing and skincare goals.

What our customers are saying?

Q. What’s the difference between Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers? 

A. 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.

 

Q. What is Botox?
A. Botox is a drug that weakens or paralyses muscles. In small doses, such as those used in Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatments, it can reduce skin wrinkles and help treat some medical conditions. Botox is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for various health issues, including eyelid spasms, excessive sweating, some bladder disorders and migraine. At SkinSpirit it is used to help certain health issues as well as being used for Anti-Wrinkle Injections. 

 

Q. How do Anti-Wrinkle Injectables work?
A. Anti-Wrinkle Injectable 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 remain still.

Most Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatments take approximately 15 - 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.

 

Contraindications

As with most injectable treatments, there are some contraindications that apply to Botox. Your Doctor will discuss this with you before your treatments but you must not have Anti-Wrinkle Injections of any of the following apply:

  • You have a skin infection
  • You're feeling unwell in any way
  • You have a neuromuscular condition such as Myasthenia Gravis
  • You’re taking certain medications or receiving certain treatments
  • Botox is not permitted if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding

Science & Technology

Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles that appear as part of the ageing process. It can also be used to treat other conditions from excessive sweating to migraines. 

Botox is the commercial and commonly known name and abbreviation for a drug produced from a toxin called Botulinum toxin. It’s a protein, more specifically, a neurotoxin, produced by a bacterium. Botox is used to interact with a neurotransmitter to paralyse or freeze the muscles that create wrinkles or folds.

The body eventually metabolises Botox, so any effects will gradually begin to lessen. Treatment does not cause the wrinkles or fine lines to return any deeper than they were before receiving injections.
