One of our most popular treatments are Anti-Wrinkle Injections. These are highly effective and used for lines and wrinkles caused by facial expression such as smiling, squinting or frowning.
We commonly use Anti-Wrinkle Injections to treat:
- Forehead and frown lines between the brows (glabella)
- Crow’s feet
- ‘Bunny lines’ on the side and top of your nose.
- The jaw, to reduce teeth grinding and elongate the face.
- The top lip to give the appearance of a fuller lip (also known as the ‘lip flip’)
- The platysma bands of the neck to smooth and elongate the appearance of the neck. This is sometimes referred to as the ‘Nefertiti Lift’ or a ‘non-surgical lower face lift’.
When considering Anti-Wrinkle Injections we believe you should consider your choice of practitioner carefully. The best injectors are able to combine a thorough medical and anatomical knowledge with an eye for symmetry and artistry and lots of experience in administering Cosmetic Injectables.
Our highly qualified and experienced injectors will listen to you and gain an understanding of your desired results and give you a personalised treatment for your individual needs.
At Ultimate Skin & Body Clinic, our doctor-led team work with only high-quality injectable products, and we carry out thousands of treatments safely every year.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Anti-wrinkle injections are the treatment of choice for clients with frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet or other wrinkles that are caused through movement of muscles. They are suitable for most clients but we will assess your specific needs at your initial consultation.
WHAT DO THE ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENTS INVOLVE?
Treatment involves a series of tiny injections into the particular muscles of your face which are causing wrinkles. The process takes only a 10-20 minutes depending on the number of areas treated.
DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS HURT?
You will feel a small pinch – it is a little uncomfortable but largely quick pain-free.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
The product used for anti-wrinkle injections has been used for a long time and is administered in such a way that it only affects the specific muscles that we are targeting (and if you have the treatment for excessive sweating, your sweat glands too). It does not reach any other part of the body. As long as cosmetic injectables are administered by an experienced and qualified cosmetic injector, the risks are extremely minimal.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME FOR ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
There is no downtime. This is a true lunch-time procedure and you can carry on with your day as normal. However, we do advise you to avoid strenuous activity, saunas or solarium for 24 hours.
HOW QUICKLY DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS TREATMENT START TO WORK?
You should start to see the effects by day 3 and these will continue until day 10 when the product will have taken full effect. Results should last approximately 3-4 months. We would want to review your results 14 days after your treatment.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED BY ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
The most common areas for treatment include the Forehead, Brow, Glabella (Between the eyes), Crows feet (Sides of the eyes), Chin, Upper lip to create a “lip flip”, Jaw (to address teeth grinding), Under the nose (to reduce a gummy smile), Platysma Bands (to elongate the neck and soften neck clenching).
HOW LONG DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS LAST?
This can vary according to your own metabolic rate and other factors but under normal circumstances, we would expect our preferred product to last 3-4 months.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER TREATMENTS TO HELP WITH WRINKLES?
Absolutely. We can also treat fine lines wrinkles with Radio-frequency, Fraxel Laser, Peels, Dermal Fillers, HIFU and LED. We offer a FREE Consultation to help you decide the best treatment for you.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS WITH ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Most side effects are short-lived and very mild. They include bruising to the site of the injection and in some clients a mild headache shortly after the treatment. These normally subside within 24 hours.
