Anti-wrinkle injections (also known as botulinum toxin injections) are now available at our private, luxury Kent Clinic and are perfect for smoothing away lines and wrinkles in the skin. The injections are designed to relax the muscles, helping to prevent the creases that cause the wrinkles in the first place. The most common area for this type of treatment tends to be in the forehead/frown area and around the eyes, which is perfect for smoothing away:

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The easiest way to describe the treatment is by comparing it to a shield that’s been erected between the brain and the muscles that have been treated. When we frown or smile, the brain sends signals to activate the muscles but botulinum puts a halt on the process and prevents this from happening. The end result reduces your expression lines and smooths out wrinkles, giving you a more youthful appearance without having to go under the surgeon’s knife. The initial effects are cumulative and you’ll notice your skin gradually becoming smoother, typically over a 2 week period. After this, you’ll be able to fully enjoy the benefits of your treatment.
Botulinum toxin injections aren’t just for those of us who want to look and feel younger. There are also practical benefits too. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes the body to sweat excessively and sometimes unpredictably, typically in the armpit/underarm area. This can affect sufferers even when they are not physically active, even in cooler weather, so it can be both annoying and some will find this embarrassing and go as far as to not remove their jackets to hide the sweat patches visible on their clothes.
Anti-wrinkle injections should last between 3 and 6 months after which time you’ll notice the lines and wrinkles gradually begin to reappear. The good news is that your lines may not be quite as noticeable as before due to muscle shrinkage caused by inactivity.
