Treatments/Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are administered as a cosmetic treatment which work to effectively relax the muscles in various areas of the face. This procedure allows fine lines and wrinkles to be both smoothed and prevented from occurring in the first place. Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the nerve signals which are responsible for muscles contractions and therefore the muscles in the treated area experience an inability to move and so this results in a smoother complexion. 

Anti-wrinkle injections are a very popular anti-ageing and rejuvenating treatment as a result of its ability to be tailored to treat each individual concern. During your consultation, one of our expert NEO Health Clinic nurse practitioners will assess your facial structure and administer personalised treatment which is aligned with your personal goals and desired outcomes.  

Anti-wrinkle injections are a very safe and effective treatment, but it is important that it is done by a qualified medical professional as a result of the freezing effect that it has on muscles. If the anatomy of the face is not properly understood, this can result in injections being administered to the wrong areas of the face which can lead to major disturbances to the structure of the face and may even lead to a frozen appearance to the face. It is also important to remember that anti-wrinkle injections cannot be reversed and in the case that you are unhappy with results you will have to wait for the effects of the anti-wrinkle injections to naturally diminish. At NEO Health, we have a team of expert NEO Health Clinic nurse practitioners who are properly educated and trained in administering anti-wrinkle injections and the anatomy of the face to ensure successful results each treatment.  

At NEO Health Clinic we also offer the Nefertiti Lift, a treatment using anti-wrinkle injections which is effective in combatting the signs of ageing in the neck and décolletage. The Nefertiti Lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure which is done to achieve a more defined, smoothed and youthful appearance to the face. During a Nefertiti life, anti-wrinkle injections are used to further define the natural structure of the face allowing clients to achieve a more youthful and desirable appearance to the neck. The injections work to relax and paralyse the muscles which have led to neck laxity, and this therefore tightens the skin surrounding the neck area allowing you to achieve a more defined and contoured appearance. In addition to the neck, the Nefertiti life also works on the jawline to encourage greater definition here too which will also contribute to achieving a more contoured and youthful appearance. 

Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular and effective treatment which works to successfully prevent the muscles in the treated area from moving which consequently leads to a smoother appearance, free of any wrinkles or fine lines. Anti-wrinkle injections are a very popular treatment for those who are concerned about the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines which occur as we begin to age and so anti-wrinkle injections are a popular treatment to eliminate these in order to achieve a much more youthful complexion. Additionally, some choose to have anti-wrinkle injections prior to the development of any fine lines and wrinkles in order to prevent these from ever occuring on the skins surface.  

Prior to receiving your anti-wrinkle injections, one of our expert specialists will first clean the area that is going to treated. Following this, they will administer the injections into the skin covering all areas necessary to achieve your individual goals and ensure symmetry to the face. During this time, you may be asked to move your face to adopt different expressions in order for your NEO Health Clinic nurse practitioner to check the injections are in the correct place. 

Anti-wrinkle injections can be administered in different areas of the face. At Neo Health, we offer anti-wrinkle injections in a variety of areas in the upper face, lower face and neck (Nefretiri package).  

Following anti-wrinkle injections, the treated areas may cause some slight discomfort, but this should not be very painful. Following your treatment, it is important to ensure you do not rub your face for the first 3 days so as to allow the anti-wrinkle injections to settle correctly. In addition, bruising and redness may be noticeable in the treated area, but this should begin to alleviate after the first few days.  

Anti-wrinkle injections are not a very painful treatment however some pain and discomfort may be experienced when the injections are injected into the skin as the needle enters the skin and the anti-wrinkle injections are injected.

"Had a great appointment with Jo, really impressive knowledge and felt very relaxed and comfortable in her expert hands. Delighted with the outcome and will be returning."

"Jo Neagu at 152 Harley is wonderful! I had a treatment and it was gentle and exactly what I asked for: natural looking and softened all the lines. Jo’s manner is lovely and she has a discerning and magic touch. Highly recommend her!"

"The clinical excellence of Nurse Jo is hard to overstate. She takes meticulous care and is extremely skilled. I've now had Profhilo and anti-wrinkle injections on two occasions and both times the results were great. She has a light touch so the effect is just what I'd hoped for - balanced, subtle and enhancing. She is very attentive to hearing what result I was looking for and the treatment felt entirely bespoke. The clinic itself runs in a friendly and well-organised way which makes for an overall excellent experience."
