What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are made up of naturally occurring plant proteins called Botulinum Toxin type A. When the protein is injected into a muscle it temporarily blocks the nerve signal which make it unable to contract as tightly. This causes the wrinkles to temporarily relax and soften. This gives a smoother, rejuvenated appearance to the face.

What areas can be treated?

The most popular areas are the horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, crow’s feet and bunny lines (small creases on the bridge of the nose). We can also treat a gummy smile and excessive sweating with Botulinum Toxin type A.

What brand of Botulinum Toxin Type A do you use?

At Simply Skin Clinic we use the brand Botox®.

How much do anti-wrinkle injections cost?

1 area: From £200

2 areas: From £270

3 areas: From £330

Is it painful?

We use the smallest needles and the medicine itself does not tend to sting. Most patients refer to it being as painful as having their eyebrows plucked.

What are the risks?

There is a small risk of bruising, redness, swelling and a temporary headache. Uncommonly, if the Botox® reaches the upper eyelid muscle there can be transient drooping for approximately 4-6 weeks.  This is the most significant risk and happens in about 1 in 1000 injections. It develops from local spread of the Botox® from the injection site and can be minimised by accurate dosage and proper placement. An adverse or allergic reaction to Botox® is extremely rare. 

Who should not receive anti-wrinkle injections?

Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, patients with a history of neuromuscular disease, patients who are taking aminoglycoside antibiotics, penicillins or calcium channel blockers, patients with a known allergy to egg white.

Will I need any follow up?

  • We provide free aftercare and follow up throughout your journey with us. All patients are booked a follow-up review at 2 weeks. This is for us to assess that the desired effect has been achieved and whether further anti-wrinkle injections are required (top-up).
