Why anti-wrinkle injections?
Because the face is an enigmatic organ with constantly changing expressions and is exposed to weather and pollution, all of which creates a harsh outlook for the delicate skin. Add in stress, smoking and sun damage and you have the perfect recipe for accelerating the effects of ageing.
As we get older, the skin loses its natural proteins such as Elastin & Collagen, a process which starts soon after we leave our teenage years.
The reduction of these proteins means the skin loses elasticity leading the formation of lines and wrinkles, crows feet, lined upper lip and hollow cheeks. Skin thins and loses its youthful glow.
Marlow Nail & Beauty can help with Anti Wrinkle Injections and Dermal fillers.
Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as ‘Botox®’, short for Botulinum toxin which is is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out the surface. Undoubtedly the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatment for the removal of wrinkles.
Botox Injections are a very effective treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines and face, crows feet and smokers lines.

WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTABLE TREATMENTS?
Keeping your face smooth and supple is tricky to do without help. Wrinkles form as our skin gets older and less elastic, and the sun contributes to the damage as well.
Injectable anti ageing treatments are a quick and convenient non surgical way to smooth out lines on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth.
Made from a drug called Botulinum Toxin, BOTOX® injections relax the muscle to stop lines and wrinkles forming. We target only the small, specific muscles responsible for unwanted lines and wrinkles, meaning your normal facial expressions will remain unaffected. Administered correctly by a medical practitioner they can subtly smooth and soften the skin, restoring a youthful complexion.
Who should have Anti-wrinkle injections?
They are the treatment of choice for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes which they wish to reduce.
What will the treatment involve?
Our doctor will make a series of small injections into the muscles of your face which takes several minutes
Does it hurt?
The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle involved. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.
What happens after treatment?
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.
After 4-10 days you will notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles, and this result will last approximately 3-4 months.
What areas can benefit from an anti-wrinkle injection?
Anti – wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places:
- Between the eyes
- Sides of the eyes
How long do the effects of an anti-wrinkle injection last?
The results usually last for around four months, after which you may wish to return for another treatment.
Is ‘Botox’ the only option for people who want to get rid of their wrinkles?
Not at all, there are various options. It may be that dermal fillers, facial peels, dermaroller or other technologies will offer a better alternative for you. We will discuss these other options during your consultation with one of the medical team before you undergo any injectable treatment to determine which course of action is best for you.
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
Cautions / contraindications
You should not have this treatment if:
- The injection site is infected
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis).
A full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at your free consultation. We are unable to proceed with any treatment until a consultation has been completed.
Do not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
