Anti-wrinkle injections

We offer a wide range of anti-wrinkle injections to relax areas of the face, smooth out fine lines and prevent wrinkles from forming over time. The Ascension team practice the delicate art of prescribing the right dosage to the treatment area, taking into account each client’s individual facial structure, to ensure movement remains natural. We work closely with every client to ensure we are sensitive to their aesthetic and functional preferences.

Areas we can treat

Forehead

Anti-wrinkle injections can prevent forehead lines from forming or deepening and can also fill out finer lines that may exist. For deeper set static wrinkles, we might suggest using some dermal filler in conjunction if your desired result is to completely smooth the forehead. Skin boosters and laser can also play a role in achieving this result.

Crow's feet

Softening the lines around the eyes, using muscle relaxant can be an effective option for those wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance. We often combine this treatment with tear trough filler to smooth the under eye area.

Frown lines

Relaxing the tension between the eyebrows can prevent wrinkles from forming in the centre of the brows. This is a popular treatment with clients looking to prevent fine lines from forming as well as those wanting to minimise lines that have formed. Often, this area is treated with the forehead to keep the brow line natural.

Lip flip

Muscle relaxant injections can create the appearance of a fuller upper lip, and can enhance a person’s smile by reducing the visibility of gums, and increasing volume of the lip in some patients.

Chin dimpling

We often administer muscle relaxants to reduce dimpling and creasing in the chin, and to naturally lengthen and smooth this area.

Anti-wrinkle injection FAQs

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-Wrinkle injections are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax. This aids in the softening of fine lines/wrinkles and in prevention of ageing. This purified protein and will only affect the muscle in which it is injected, leaving the surrounding muscles unaffected.

How long will it last?

The effects of Anti-Wrinkle injections typically last two to four months but differ between patients.

Will there be pain relief during the procedure?

Anti-Wrinkle injections are a relatively painless procedure and do not usually require any form of pain relief. However, topical numbing can be applied if required.

What are the side effects?

As with any medical procedure there are risks to consider. Some patients may experience some mild discomfort or bruising. Serious side effects are rare, but can include a heavy feeling in brow or eyelid droop. If either of these were to occur they would resolve within 3-4 weeks.

Recovery

Anti-wrinkle injections are minimally invasive and require no downtime. Bruising is uncommon, but if it were to occur it would gradually resolve over 1-2 weeks.

Aftercare

Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for 4 hours and exercise for 12 hours. Alcohol can increase the chance of bruising & swelling and is therefore not advised for 24 hours post treatment.
