Anti-wrinkle and wrinkle relaxing treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles to combat signs of ageing. Anti-wrinkle treatment is commonly carried out on the upper face, helping to ease the fine lines and wrinkles that have formed in areas of facial expression.  

Common treatment areas include:

Frown lines

Vertical frown lines between your eyebrows can develop over time and are often exacerbated by a frown or angry expression. Frown lines can also give you an angrier appearance. These wrinkles and expression can be particularly troublesome and ageing to your appearance. Anti-wrinkle treatment for frown lines aims to soften the appearance of these lines and give a more neutral expression to the area.

Forehead lines

Horizontal forehead lines develop over time with ageing and can vary in severity. In some people these lines can become an area of concern. Forehead treatment can help reduce the appearance of these forehead wrinkles, and the associated expression which exacerbates their appearance.

Squinting lines around the eyes (“crow’s feet”)

With ageing, people can develop lines and wrinkles around the eyes. These are more evident when squinting in bright light or smiling. These “Crow’s feet wrinkles” get their name because they look like the imprint of a crow’s foot radiating from the corners of your eye. These eye wrinkles can be troublesome for people and impact the freshness of your appearance. Eye wrinkle injections aim to reduce the appearance of these lines, as well as reduce the squinting expression at the sides of your eyes when smiling or laughing.  

There are a variety of different anti-wrinkle products available in the UK aesthetics market. Our doctors only use the best UK-licensed products for your procedures. During your consultation, the most appropriate product will be selected to meet your needs. Product choice and total treatment cost will be discussed during your consultation.

An anti-wrinkle treatment usually takes no more than 10 minutes, but we recommend you set aside up to an hour for your consultation and treatment - especially if you are new to Virgin Care Private.

Your aesthetic consultation

Our doctors will perform a free full medical consultation to make sure you are suitable for treatment and your concerns are realistically amenable to aesthetic anti-wrinkle procedures. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer all clients cosmetic treatment. Some reasons why (but not exclusively) include: if you are trying to get pregnant, are pregnant or are actively breast feeding. Also, anti-wrinkle treatments cannot be performed if you suffer with a general neuromuscular disorder. Our doctors will discuss this fully with you during your consultation, to make sure aesthetic treatments can safely be performed to treat your concerns.

We offer a complimentary review after your first treatment to make sure you have achieved your best results - this is typically performed after two weeks.
