Fine Line & Anti Wrinkle Injections In London

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Over time, the skin begins to age, collagen and elastin break down, and fine lines or wrinkles start to appear on the skin. Collagen and elastin are the two components that provide the support structure for the skin, keeping it smooth, resilient, and youthful. As these fibres break down, the skin loses its strength and elasticity, forming shallow creases on the face. This is something that we can target with our anti wrinkle injections.

Our fine line and wrinkle injections are a minimally invasive treatment that can revitalise the face by restoring plumpness and smoothing out any unwanted lines. Whether your fine lines are caused by age, sun damage, or your facial expressions, we have a treatment to help you restore a youthful glow and refresh your appearance.

Book your treatment consultation with our team of experts and we will show you the results that can be achieved with our best anti wrinkle injections.

What Are The Causes Of Fine Lines & Wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are small, shallow creases that are only as deep as the top layer of the skin on your face. These lines are usually up to 2 mm deep and often indicate the beginning of your skin’s ageing process. You’ll usually first see these fine lines around the eyes and mouth because the skin there is thin and moves a lot through the day. These repetitive motions case wrinkles and creases over time that are difficult to avoid, but can be treated with anti wrinkle injections. These repetitive movements can include smiling, laughing, frowning, side sleeping, squinting, and smoking.

These repetitive movements are just the beginning of fine line factors, and there are several more to consider, some of which cannot be helped. These include genetics, sun exposure, fair skin, dry skin, and ageing. By adopting good lifestyle habits and assessing your current skincare regime, you can help to slow the appearance of fine lines. You can also visit us in our salon to try our best anti wrinkle injections.

What Can Anti Wrinkle Injections Help With?

Our range of wrinkle injections act on the neuromuscular junction to block signals between nerves and muscles. They can therefore induce a desirable “muscle relaxing” effect on various areas of the face and body, which can:

  • Minimise existing wrinkles
  • Prevent new wrinkles
  • Reduce large square jaws
  • Control teeth grinding
  • Minimise hyperhidrosis in the armpits, palms, and soles
  • Lift the brows
  • Soften new lines and bands
  • Treat exaggerated expressions, such as bunny lines, gummy smiles, and dimpled chins
  • Smooth peri-oral lines

Most of these effects show within a matter of days and reach a peak at 2 weeks. The effects should continue for 3-6 months and our specialist doctors can recommend follow up treatment, if required.

Mechanism of action of treatment:

Forehead/frown lines/crow’s feet (common as the three areas)

  • Are you suitable?

Wrinkles form when facial muscles underneath the skin contract. They become more visible with age as the skin loses collagen and elastin and become more easily ‘creased’ by the contractions. These injections relax the muscles and significantly reduce the muscles’ wrinkling effects.

Regular administration of the injections will not only minimise existing wrinkles but also prevents permanent wrinkling of the skin from years of unrelaxed muscle contractions.

  • How long does the procedure take?

The procedure itself takes only 5 minutes. It is one of the most popular ‘lunch-time’ cosmetic procedures.

  • When will I see results?

The effects typically start to show in a matter of days and reach a peak at 2 weeks.

  • When can you return to normal activities?

The injections will result in mild swelling and redness which usually resolves after 30 minutes. Applying ice can speed up the process. Normal activities can be resumed shortly after the procedure. However, strenuous activities such as going to the gym should ideally be avoided in the first 24 hours.

  • How long will the results last?

In general, it will continue to have effects for 3-6 months.

brow lift

  • Are you suitable?

Ageing can result in lowering of the brows. Higher brow positions are often desired because they are associated with a more energised look and an overall more youthful appearance. This treatments once injected into one or multiple muscles to help lift the brows. This combined with dermal fillers can help achieve several millimeters of lifting without any invasive procedures.

  • How long does the procedure take?

Chemical brow lift takes around 5 minutes only. When combined with dermal fillers, the whole procedure takes approximately 20 minutes.

  • When will I see results?

The effects typically start to show in a matter of days and reach a peak at 2 weeks.

  • When can you return to normal activities?

The injections will result in mild swelling and redness which usually resolves after 30 minutes. Applying ice can speed up the process. Normal activities can be resumed shortly after the procedure. However, strenuous activities such as going to the gym should ideally be avoided in the first 24 hours.

  • How long will the results last?

In general, it will continue to have effects for 3-6 months. Dermal fillers last between 6 – 12 months depending on the choice of filler.

Teeth grinding & jaw slimming

  • Are you suitable?

Teeth grinding happens at night and is usually involuntary (without conscious efforts). It is detrimental to the health of the teeth and over time can result in large square jaws which look obvious and unnatural.

Sometimes there is a genetic predisposition to large square jaws. Various studies have suggested that East Asians have genetically more hypertrophied masseter muscles [1][2][3]. Large square jaws in women particularly can leave a masculine impression.

This treatment can effectively weaken masseter muscles, disabling night time teeth grinding and over time reduce the size of the muscles, making the face look more slimmed and oval-shaped.

Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating

  • Are you suitable?

Sweating is a normal physiological response to cool the body down when the body is under stress or ‘overheated’. However, excessive sweating or ‘hyperhidrosis’ can occur when sweating occurs in unexpected situations or in excess quantities. Excessive sweating/ ‘hyperhidrosis’ commonly affect the under arms, the hands and the soles of the feet.

The injections can help deactivate the nerves which activate sweat glands and therefore result in up to 90% less sweating in affected areas.

  • How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to complete for two areas affected by excessive sweating/hyperhidrosis.

  • When will I see results?

The ‘drying’ effects typically start to show in a matter of days and reach a peak at 2 weeks.

  • When can you return to normal activities?

The injections will result in mild swelling and redness which usually resolves after 30 minutes. Applying ice can speed up the process. Normal activities can be resumed shortly after the procedure. However, strenuous activities such as going to the gym should ideally be avoided in the first 24 hours.

  • How long will the results last?

The ‘drying’ effects can be expected to last between 4 – 14 months in the case of excessive sweating in the under arms and in areas such as the palms and the soles, the effects are typically shorter and last around 6 months.

Platysma bands, neck wrinkles and non-surgical neck lift

  • Are you suitable?

The neck is an important area to look after in the ageing process. With age, the neck loses firmness and appears ‘saggy’ and often displays exaggerated muscle contractions/ ‘neck bands’.

The injections work by eliminating excessive ‘banding’ appearance in the neck, making the neck look more relaxed and youthful.

To achieve total neck rejuvenation, we recommend combining the injections treatment with various other collagen-inducing treatments which are also available at our clinic such as:

Neck Profhilo

Neck Fractional Microneedling radiofrequency (RF)

Neck Chemical peels

Neck IPL or ‘laser’/light therapy

Neck Ultraformer III / HIFU

However, strenuous activities such as going to the gym should ideally be avoided in the first 24 hours.

  • How long will the results last?

In general, it will continue to have effects for 3-6 months.

Peri-oral wrinkles/lip wrinkles/smoker’s lines

  • Are you suitable?

Vertical wrinkles can form around the lips as we age which are made more obvious by peri-oral movements, such as pouting, speaking, chewing, etc. They are especially common in smokers. They give away a person’s age easily.

The injections can help smoothen the wrinkles in and around the lips, giving a more youthful look to the mouth/lip region in general.

For complete mouth/lip rejuvenation, we recommend this treatment in combination with several other collagen-stimulating or intense hydrating therapies also available at our clinic:

Lip filler

Peri-oral Dermal Filler

Peri-oral Profhilo
