Anti-wrinkles injections

Wrinkle relaxers or anti-wrinkle injections are an effective treatment choice to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and expression lines caused by repetitive facial expressions and movements. Anti-wrinkle injections include the use of a purified protein which disrupts the communication of the nerve to the muscle thus halting or reducing the ability for that muscle to contract resulting in reduction of wrinkles from repeated muscle use. On visiting our clinic our attentive staff will create a bespoke treatment plan based on your aesthetic concerns. In relation to anti-wrinkle injections your prescribing Doctor and Nurse Injector will discuss the appropriate use of this treatment for your preferred aesthetic outcome.
