How anti-wrinkle injections such  can help you turn back time

Overtime lines may develop on your face because of many factors, such as ageing, sun exposure, dehydration, smoking, gravity and poor nutrition. They are even created by your own facial expressions due to constantly contracting from laughing and smiling. The purpose of anti-wrinkle injections is to offer you non-surgical and minimally invasive solutions to help you improve and maintain the appearance of your skin. This anti-wrinkle reduction procedure works best for wrinkles caused by muscle overactivity such as forehead creases, frown lines and crow’s feet. This is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the world.

At Empire Clinic, we believe that the fundamental basis for a successful aesthetic procedure is an in-depth consultation with a skilled qualified practitioner to assess your needs and develop a bespoke personal treatment plan so that you achieve outstanding natural looking results.


Wrinkle relaxing injections, are therapeutic agents derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A. Normally, your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles so that they can contract and move. Wrinkle relaxing injections work by blocking this message and, as a result, the muscle is temporarily unable to  contract, giving the face a more relaxed appearance. The wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether.

Patients with hyperhidrosis (intense sweating) also can temporarily remedy their disorder with Wrinkle relaxing injections.  The product is injected into areas like the under arms and backs of knees or palms of the hands, blocking the sweat glands which cause the excessive sweating.


Here is some essential information about the treatment and what to expect before, during and after your visit with us.



At Empire Clinic, nothing is more important to us than your health, safety and wellbeing. During your initial consultation, we discuss in depth what your wants and needs are and make a plan on how we can achieve that for you. We also talk through your medical history to make sure there aren't any potential contraindications. If you have any qualms or questions of your own, this appointment provides a great opportunity to ask away.



Anti wrinkle injections involve minimal discomfort therefore it does not involve the use of numbing. Your aesthetic nurse will request you to make facial expressions like frowning to determine and mark the location of facial muscles. They will then inject a tiny amount of Botox into the target muscles. The number of injections may vary by treatment, but around 16 are generally used. The entire process takes just 10 to 30 minutes, which means you can have a Botox injection during lunch break and return to work in the afternoon.



Some patients develop slight redness at the injection site, but the redness usually clears within 15 minutes or so. Still, you should avoid touching the injection site for at least 60 minutes. Since Botox injections do not typically produce immediate results, you will begin to see tangible results anywhere from a few days to two weeks after treatment. Depending on the part of body treated, results could last 3-6 months. Follow-up injections are necessary to maintain the desired effect.


Which areas can be treated?

Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax the muscles mostly in the upper third of your face:

  • Glabella (the smooth part of the forehead, above and between the eyebrows): to smooth frown lines between your eyebrows.
  • Forehead lines: to eliminate horizontal forehead lines.
  • Crow’s feet: to target those ageing smile lines around your eyes.

Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to relax muscles in the lower face and neck:

  • Eyebrows: to lift the edge of your brows and to open-up your eyes for a more refreshed appearance
  • Bunny lines: to treat lines at the side of the upper nose
  • Perioral lines: to banish lines around your lips caused by lip pursing or smoking
  • Bruxism: to prevent teeth grinding and clenching teeth by relaxing the jaw muscles
  • Gummy smile: to fix excessive gum visibility for a more confident smile
  • Lips: to correct down turning lip corners and a drooping mouth, and to plump lips for lip enhancement
  • Dimpled chin: to minimise the appearance of chin dimples caused by the unevenness of the chin on movement
  • Platysmal bands: to treat those unwanted horizontal neck creases which appear as stringy vertical bands in the neck, sometimes known as ‘necklace lines’ or ‘vertical ridges’.

Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to decrease excessive sweating:

  • Underarms: to treat excessive sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) by preventing the nerve signals from stimulating the sweat glands.

What are the side effects?

Wrinkle relaxing injections have an excellent safety profile with over 2.5 million users to date across the UK, France, Italy, Spain and Germany. The doses are very small and the risks are minimal. If any do occur, they’re temporary and just mild to moderate.

  • Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site
  • Headache or flu-like symptoms
  • Droopy eyelid or cockeyed eyebrows

We cannot stress enough how important is it for Wrinkle relaxing injections to be performed by doctors and nurses with appropriate qualifications and expertise in a clinical setting.

Does treatment hurt?

Some patients report that anti wrinkle injections feel like a pinch. Very thin needles are used therefore discomfort is minimal. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure is very quick with the consultation part of your treatment taking the longest. Most appointments are around 20 minutes long.

How many treatments are needed?

Anti-wrinkle injections only require one treatment to be effective. The treatment usually begins working one to seven days later. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three months or longer. To maintain the effect, you’ll need regular follow-up injections.

How long does it last for?

You may begin to notice improvement within 24 to 48 hours, although for some it may take up to a week. Your results may last 3-6 months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your medical practitioner will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

How do I prepare for my treatment?

Tell your nurse or doctor if you’ve had any type of Wrinkle relaxing injections within the past four months. Also let them know if you take muscle relaxants, sleeping aids or allergy medications. If you take blood thinners, you may need to stop taking them several days before your injection to reduce your risk of bleeding or bruising.

Is there any downtime after treatment?

There is no downtime following anti-wrinkle injections. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure. Generally, on the day you get Wrinkle relaxing injections, it’s a good idea to:

  • gently exercise your face
  • relax for the rest of the day
  • maintain a normal heart rate
  • avoid touching, rubbing, or physical pressure on the affected area
  • leave the treated area alone

Are there any after-care instructions?

The goal of Wrinkle relaxing injections aftercare is to encourage optimal treatment results. It can also minimize the risk of bruising and spreading to other areas. You can follow the best practices for Wrinkle relaxing injections aftercare below.

  • If exercise is part of your daily routine, wait at least 24 hours to work out. Your doctor might suggest waiting for several days.
  • Go makeup-free. If you received a Wrinkle relaxing injections in your face, take a break from makeup for 24 hours. Applying makeup will rub the skin, potentially dispersing the toxin.
  • Sit up for the first 4 hours after getting Wrinkle relaxing injections. Bending or lying down might spread the toxin and promote bruising.
  • Ask your doctor about medications. Some medications might increase your risk of bruising. Be sure to ask your nurse or doctor when it’s safe to start taking them again.
  • Don’t drink alcohol. Wait at least 24 hours after your injection before consuming alcohol.
  • Don’t touch your face. To avoid spreading the toxin, don’t touch your face for at least 1 day. Some doctors suggest waiting 3 days. If you got Wrinkle relaxing injections in another part of your body, you should also avoid touching those areas. This includes professional massages on the treated areas. It’s best to schedule your next massage for several days later.
  • Avoid other skin treatments. Wrinkle relaxing injections need some time to settle into the muscle. For the first 24 hours, avoid other skin treatments like
  • Don’t sleep on the treated areas. Try your best to avoid sleeping on the injected areas. This will minimize the physical pressure and let the product settle into your muscles. Also, avoid sleeping within 4 hours after your procedure.
  • Stay out of the sun. Avoid sun exposure for at least 4 hours. The heat can promote flushing and increase your blood pressure, which may encourage bruising. To be extra safe, avoid the sun for 24 to 48 hours.
