Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Anti-wrinkle injections are an easy, effective way to reduce frown lines, crow’s feet, smile lines and achieve a natural-looking, more youthful appearance. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes, and you can return to work or daily activities immediately afterwards, making it the perfect lunchtime treatment.
Wrinkles and fine lines are formed due to the loss of sub-dermal fat, moisture, and elasticity from the skin over time. They are caused by many factors, including environmental, sun exposure, genetics, age and lifestyle. Repetitive muscle movements like frowning in concentration or crinkling your eyes when you laugh can cause deep lines making you appear older than you feel. If your face isn’t reflecting how you feel inside, anti-wrinkle injections can help you achieve a youthful appearance that matches your energy.

How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-surgical procedure to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on your face. After a consultation about your areas of concern, we administer tiny injections to relax specific facial muscles responsible for wrinkles due to persistent underlying tension and repeated contractions.
The placement of the injections must be precise to achieve the desired results without complication. Dr Deborah Rea is trained and experienced in Cosmetic Injectables and will perform both your consultation and the actual procedure. She aims to achieve long-lasting and natural-looking results designed to enhance your overall appearance.
