Anti-wrinkle injections: why?

As we begin to age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity and due to varying factors, some of us can age faster than others and present with deeper frowns and creases.

By temporarily and gently relaxing the overworked muscles that we use to frown, anti-wrinkle injections help to smooth out lines and ‘soften’ our appearance. The injections are very specific, targeting the movement of certain muscles only, ensuring that the most natural look is achieved.

Anti-wrinkle injections are by far the most commonly requested cosmetic treatment globally for both men and women and have been used for over 20 years to temporarily relax and smooth out wrinkles and frown lines safely, quickly, reliably and with virtually no downtime, resulting in a more youthful, refreshed and relaxed appearance.

What are Anti-Wrinkle injections most effective for?

Anti-wrinkle injections are very versatile and are extremely effective for treating the following conditions:

  • Frown lines and crows feet
  • Horizontal lines
