The muscles of the face allow us to express a range of emotions such as happiness, sadness, or anger. Over time, the repeated use of facial muscles causes lines and wrinkles to occur. These lines can make you look permanently angry or worried, even when you’re not.
Muscle relaxant treatments are a simple, effective non-surgical treatment that can greatly reduce and even halt these visible, tell-tale signs of ageing. You will still be able to laugh and smile, just with less wrinkling of the skin in treated areas, creating a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
These treatments will also help smooth and prevent the deeper, persistent facial lines that develop over time, typically known as crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do anti-wrinkle-treatments injections work?
Wrinkles are caused by the habitual and uncontrollable contraction of some of the tiny muscles of the face, which wrinkle up the overlying skin. Anti-wrinkle injections work to alleviate wrinkles on a biological basis; by blocking the signal from the brain which tells your wrinkle-causing muscles to contract.
The product we use is a modified form of a naturally occurring substance which blocks the signals between your facial nerves and these superficial muscles, which ultimately allows the skin to relax.
What are the benefits?
Anti-wrinkle injections can give you a more relaxed and youthful-looking face, forehead or eyes, whilst still allowing mobility. Anti-wrinkle injections are particularly effective in treating deep frown lines or nasolabial folds.
At The Clinic, we have access to a wide range of different anti-wrinkle-treatments technologies and in consultation with you, will use these anti-wrinkle-treatments injections in conjunction with a complete treatment plan for your face and body.

What happens during my treatment?
You’ll speak with our doctor about your background and medical history and our medical team will formulate a treatment plan for your wrinkles, which may include other therapies in addition to the injections.
At your anti-wrinkle-treatments injection appointment:
The doctor will map out the area to be treated by examining your ability to move certain facial muscles.
Ice packs are used to numb the treatment area.
Several injections are made in an area targeted to the muscles which are causing your wrinkles, each to a specific depth and with a specific volume of product.
The procedure will take around 20-30 minutes.
What precautions should I take pre and post treatment?
There is no downtime required for anti-wrinkle-treatments injections and you can resume normal activities immediately. However, you should avoid the following for at least 24 hours:
Consumption of alcohol
It is also recommended to avoid the following for two weeks:
Extended exposure to sun or UV light
Extended exposure to heat or freezing temperatures
Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection sites. If you have any swelling at the injection site you can apply an ice pack for a brief period to help with discomfort.
We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent sun damage to the skin. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or above should be used daily. If you are under the sun for prolonged periods of time, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least once every two hours.
