Anti-wrinkle Injections

We offer first class Anti-wrinkle Injection Treatments at Walsall Skin Clinic carried out by Doctors or Consultants. Wrinkles can be successfully treated with a type of protein which relaxes the muscles temporarily. Anti-wrinkle Injections have been used safely for many years and can be fitted into your lunch break.

Where do we treat wrinkles with Anti-wrinkle Injections?

At Walsall Skin Clinic we recommend three main areas of treatment with Anti-wrinkle Injections.

Frown Lines – Most commonly known as Glabella lines, frown lines develop in-between the eyes and can give both aged or an ‘angry’ look to the face. If you frown lots these deep grooves will develop over time, whilst sun damage can also cause frown lines. These lines are often deep vertical grooves that can be successfully treated with Anti-wrinkle Injections, with or without Dermal Fillers.

Forehead wrinkles – Wrinkles on the forehead run in horizontal lines and occur through general expressions over time. Forehead wrinkles generally age the face and can be easily treated with Anti-wrinkle Injections.

Crow’s Feet wrinkles – Periorbital wrinkles are most commonly known as crows feet and inevitaby form with age and the constant expressions at the eyes. Smoking and sun damage can make these wrinkles deeper and more prevalent.

Anti-wrinkle Injections FAQ

How does Anti-wrinkle Injection work?

Anti-wrinkle Injections work by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The muscle then moves less, preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles.

Is Anti-wrinkle Injections Safe?

Anti-wrinkle Injection is one of the safest non surgical treatments you can have with many years proven effectiveness. There are few, temporary side effects, with the most common being bruising at the site of injection.

When can I see the results?

It can take anywhere from 7 to 12 days, to start seeing the effects.

How long does Anti-wrinkle Injection last?

The action on the muscle is never permanent. The length of time that the muscle does not move varies from person to person. On average Anti-wrinkle Injections last between 4-6 months.

Does the treatment hurt?

We administer a topical numbing cream prior to our injections at Walsall Skin Clinic. This is of course optional and in general the discomfort is minimal.
