What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections, also known as Botox®, can be a great non-surgical alternative to a facelift and are specifically designed to help smooth out the common signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin for a more refined, youthful appearance.
As we get older and our skin looses its elasticity, the frequent contraction of our facial muscles can create folds leaving our faces with expression lines and wrinkles. Anti-Wrinkle Injections, commonly referred to as Botox®, use a highly purified protein to block the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This results in the muscles relaxing and stops them from contracting, helping to smooth out lines and tighten your skin for an overall rejuvenated appearance. Because of the use of a very fine needle, Botox® treatment is incredibly precise, allowing for highly targeted areas of concern to be treated.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
Which concerns can Anti-Wrinkle Injections address?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections, such as Botox®, can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face that are prone to the common signs of ageing. They can effectively treat the crow’s feet, loose skin, droopy jowls, fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally to anti-ageing benefits for the face, Anti-Wrinkle Injections can also be used as an excessive sweating treatment to reduce the production of sweat on the underarms area.
Please keep in mind that the concerns that can be treated with Anti-Wrinkle Injections are unique to each patient and something that should be discussed with your personal Treatment Coordinator.

Step By Step Anti-Wrinkle Injections
1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION
Your first step is a no-obligation consultation with one of EF MEDISPA’ s Treatment Coordinator who are trained to provide you with detailed information on the procedure. After taking a full medical history, your adviser will be able to suggest what type of procedure is most suitable for you. Your appointment will then be booked with the Doctor or Nurse for your Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatment.
2 MEET YOUR Practitioner
During your appointment with the Practitioner you will have the opportunity to discuss the treatment process thoroughly. They will review your full medical history, assess the areas you would like to treat and discuss the results you are looking to achieve prior to treatment.
Should you wish to proceed with this treatment, your facial muscles will be examined, so that your Practitioner will be able to determine where to administer the injections. Several tiny Anti-Wrinkle Injections will then be injected precisely into the muscles that cause the frown lines. Pain is considered to be minimal and no anaesthesia is needed, though ice may be used to numb the area before and after your treatment. This is a simple and quick process lasting no longer than half an hour and it involves minimal downtime but you can usually resume to normal activities straight after your treatment.
4 RESULTS REVIEW AND COMPLIMENTARY TOP UP
You will then be invited back into the clinic for review of your procedure two weeks after your initial appointment, as this is how long the injectable treatment requires to take full effect. This is to ensure you are 100% happy with your results. If you would like to top up your treatment during this review appointment your Practitioner will provide a complimentary top up.
5 NEXT APPOINTMENT
Before leaving the clinic, our team will arrange your next appointment in 3-4 months time.
