Anti Wrinkle Injections & Botox Clinic in Dublin

Anti Wrinkle Injections, more commonly known as Botox, are the world’s most popular anti-ageing procedure due their effectiveness at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Botox can be administered in various parts of the face but has the most profound effect in the muscles of the upper face such as the vertical lines in between your brows, horizontal lines that run across your forehead and the crow’s feet at the corners of the eye. Botox is derived from a type A toxin called Botulinum Toxin. It is a very safe and effective procedure used to reduce line and wrinkles on the face including forehead, frown lines, crows feet and around the mouth.

Anti Wrinkle Injections – The Procedure

We carry out an initial consultation to determine your suitability, how many areas we will treat, and give you all the necessary information in this visit. The procedure itself only takes about 20 minutes and is relatively pain free with people describing it as ‘pinchy’.

Results can be seen in 2 weeks, some may see its effects before this with the lines smoothening out and giving a fresh, ‘I’ve had a great night’s sleep’ look. Results will last approx 3-6 months

Treatable Areas with Anti Wrinkle Injections

Frown Lines

Frown lines can occur in the forehead in a vertical or horizontal pattern.

The vertical lines are those that occur in between the brows and can become quite deep and well defined over time. Another name for these are the 11’s! People often say these sort of lines make them look “angry” all the time, when this is not the case. The reason behind this is the person is over activating these muscles over time making them stronger and the lines deeper.

Horizontal lines run across the forehead. These are usually seen when one raises their eyebrows. Small injections given across the forehead soften these lines.  

Crows feet are the lines that fan out from the corners of your eye. For some people these are more obvious when they smile big and for others they can be seen at rest. Depending on how much you use these muscles, your age, gender, and ethnicity will all depend on the line depth. Those who have been exposed to a lot of sunlight without eye protection may have more pronounced crows feet. Also for those who are preventive and start early it can be easier to achieve better results in this area. When these lines are continuous and fan down to the cheekbone area, a combination of botox and filler work synergistically to restore smoothness and volume to the area. Loss of volume around the mid face/cheek can pull on the area at the corner of the eye to worsen the crows feet. By anchoring up the skin at the cheek it provides a platform for the skin above it to sit, not sag one.

Bunny lines

These are the lines that appear when you scrunch up your nose. Small injections given on the side of the nose are very effective way to smoothen them out. Results can be seen in 2 weeks and will last for approx 3-4 months.

Smokers lines

These are the small lines that appear across the top of the lip. They are more prominent in smokers but even if a person is not a smoker as we age we our collagen banks become depleted and we loose elastin from our skin causing a crepping or laxity thereby making these lines can become more obvious.Small injections are given above the lip to smoothen these out and prevent them getting any deeper.

Results can be seen after 2 wks.  A combination of other treatments e.g micro needling, profhilo, PRP, and dermal filler may be recommended to you to improve these lines.  As the area above the lip is quite a thin tissue and we want our results to be natural and not look over treated with product.

Excessive sweating

The procedure usually takes approx 30-4 5mins and is relatively painless.

How Do Anti Wrinkle Injections Work?

Small injections are given causing the toxin to bind with the muscle and reduce its activity. This in turn will soften or get rid of existing lines depending on their depth and strength of the muscle prior to treatment. The skin will appear smoother, wrinkle free and youthful.
