What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to relax wrinkle-causing muscles; creating a smoother and improved appearance.
They have been used in the medical industry all over the world for more than 20 years. These kinds of injections have been through extensive clinical trials, published studies and extensive clinical practice to be proven safe, so you can feel confident in their safety and effectiveness.
The benefits of anti-wrinkle injections
You may take very good care of your skin, but the first signs of ageing will eventually appear. Advances in cosmetic surgery make it possible to preserve smooth looking skin for a little bit longer.
Anti-wrinkle injections block the signals between nerves and muscles, preventing the impact of frown lines and wrinkles, as a great alternative to more invasive procedures. Anti-wrinkle injections are a painless way to maintain youthful skin with minimal discomfort.
Some of the major benefits of anti-wrinkle injections include:
1. It's a non-surgical solution
Anti-wrinkle injections do not involve surgery, meaning there is less personal risk, recovery time and cost. If you are a woman in your mid-thirties or younger, anti-wrinkle injections are a great option if a full facelift isn't required.
2. Minimal discomfort
For those who wish to avoid surgery, anti-wrinkle injections are much more straightforward, quick and precise. The experienced team at Chelsea Cosmetics use an extremely fine needle resulting in the feel of a pinprick at most. An anaesthetic cream can also be used to numb the skin further minimising any discomfort.
3. Results appear after a few days
Anti-wrinkle injections will not cause bruising or swelling, and you will see the effects in approximately three days in which skin will look smoother and more youthful.
4. Fast recovery
One of the main benefits of anti-wrinkle injections is the speedy recovery time. The procedure will only take a few minutes, and you can return to work or normal activities straight after your appointment.
5. Make-up can be applied immediately after
Anti-wrinkle injections cause little trauma to the skin, so the application of makeup is not an issue.

How it Works
The contraction of facial muscles often creates wrinkles. The transmission of a neurotransmitter is inhibited from the nerve to the muscle which results in the formation of wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections helps to relax those muscles allowing the transmission between nerve and muscle to continue. In the example of a frown, anti-wrinkle injections can be used for preventing a vertical frown line. The same idea can be applied to the eye region preventing crows feet.
Which facial areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections?
The most common areas for treatment can include:
- Around the mouth
- Around the eyes
Other treatments can help to stop the mouth from pulling downwards, or lower the upper lip. It is best to talk to the knowledgeable staff here at Chelsea Cosmetics to see if any procedure you are considering can be helpful in your situation.
What happens during the treatment?
Small injections are focused on the treated areas over a short amount of time. These fine needles only inject a small volume which results in minimal discomfort. For patients who may experience slightly more discomfort, an anaesthetic cream can be applied. It can take roughly one to two weeks for the results of the procedure to take effect. The muscles will gradually relax after 2-3 days.
How long will the results last?
The effects of the procedure are often dependent on the size of the dose with a maximum time frame of roughly four months. The duration often increases if the procedure is more regularly administered due to a gradual weakening of the muscles. Muscles will return to normal if you decide to stop the treatment.
The results can be seen within a few days. The muscles treated will start relaxing in a couple of days and attain maximum ease within 7-14 days. As the effect of the injections starts to subside after about three months, you will notice that the results will begin to fade away.
You may experience minimal discomfort during the treatment. However, the procedure will be quick, and it does not require an anaesthetic procedure. You can continue your activities after the surgery is done. Some patients report minor discomfort for a few seconds at the time the needle is administered. Please note that bruising may occur in some cases; however, it can be concealed with makeup and will fade away eventually.
It is recommended to limit the use of your facial expressions for two hours after the injection to get better results and not to exercise the same day as that could affect the outcome.

The procedure is also used for non-cosmetic cases including helping children with cerebral palsy to help reduce spasticity in muscles allowing for normal movement, and the reduction of eyebrow spasms, amongst others.
The substance used for facial wrinkles can also be used to reduce excessive sweating in the armpits, hands, or feet. It can also be used for people with a square jawline to give a slimming effect.
There are little to no side effects from the treatment, however, in some cases, there may be bruising over the treated area, which is more common in treatments around the eyes for example. There can also sometimes be transient redness and swelling over the area however it is only for a short number of hours.

Anti wrinkle injection can be used in other conditions like:
- People suffered paralysis of facial nerve, these patient experience tighter muscles and uneven facial expression. Anti wrinkle injection can help to make their facial expression almost even.
- People with bruxism, These patients have teeth grinding problem and that leads to masseter muscle hypertrophy. Injecting antiwrinkle regularly in the massester makes it much weaker and patient suffers less gridding.
- Hyperydrosis is a condition where the patients have excessive sweating. Most commonly underarms which makes the patient very conscious about the condition. Injecting antiwrinkle injection in the area helps to decrase the seating in the area for up to 8-9 months.
All of our wrinkle injections are performed by medical practitioners or a trained nurse under supervision who are fully registered and experienced in the procedure.
The lines and creases in the skin are what we call wrinkles. These are less noticeable when we are younger as our skin has more elasticity and strength meaning these lines disappear easier when our facial muscles are relaxed.
As we get older, collagen in our skin depletes making it less elastic. This is due to various factors including genes and lifestyle choices. A lack of sleep, smoking or too much time in the sun can all have an adverse effect. As a result, specific facial muscles cause expression lines that become permanent creases.
Anti-wrinkle injections work to relax these muscles diminishing the wrinkles and creating a smoother appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections have no direct effects on the muscle, rather the proteins within the nerve endings. These nerve endings rebuild straight away, taking roughly 3-4 months to regain normal function. The aim is to weaken the muscles that create unwanted facial expressions. The continual use of anti-wrinkle injections will make these muscles a lot smaller which will also reduce the number and frequency of treatments required over time.
Anti-wrinkle injections are often used to combat deep creases and prolong skin life in conjunction with dermal fillers.
