Some of the most effective and popular procedures today do not involve surgery at all! If you are not ready for surgery, or if all you need is a slight improvement, this can be an excellent interim step. Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers soften lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoothed, improved and more youthful appearance.
They are simple, fast and effective treatments that usually involve no “down time”.

Horizontal forehead wrinkles
Smokers’ lines and mouth ageing
Men and women, late twenties to sixties
There are two types of injections: the first type (muscle relaxing injections) reduces the excess activity of wrinkle-causing muscles and full effect takes 7 to 10 days. The second type (the dermal fillers) immediately replenishes the skin beneath wrinkles and furrows. For very deep expression lines the benefits are greater if both types of treatment are used together. The fillers can also be used for lip enhancement to produce a more full and voluptuous lip, soften vertical lip wrinkles (smokers’ lines) and redefine the lip line.
Recent advances now enable safe and dramatic rejuvenation of ageing in the mouth and lower face as well as the commonly treated upper facial areas.
These treatments are performed in the rooms, take 15-20 minutes and local anaesthetic is used as required.
Duration of results
The benefits of dermal filler and muscle relaxing injections are temporary because the substances are gradually and safely absorbed into the body. The duration varies between people and usually lasts from 3 – 6 months for muscle relaxing injections and 4 – 12 months (depending on product selected) for dermal fillers.
Patients requesting long lasting wrinkle reduction should consider the option of fat injections. Please see the information section on Fat Injections.
