What are Wrinkle Relaxing Injections?

Wrinkle Relaxing Injection treatments will vary depending on what your nurse or doctor has recommended as the best treatment for you following a consultation.

The Treatment

Wrinkle Injections are the most effective rejuvenating treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements.

The Results

Lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out and you’ll be left with a youthful, glowing appearance.

What are Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

Wrinkle relaxing injections are made from a drug called Botulinum toxin which is FDA approved for medical and cosmetic use. It is effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Small doses of botulinum toxin are injected into the areas being treated in small doses which work to relax the muscles that are responsible for forming the wrinkles.

What is Botulinum Toxin?

Wrinkle relaxing injections are made from a drug called Botulinum Toxin which is a neurotoxic protein produced by Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium. It is actually the same toxin that causes life-threatening food poisoning called botulism but is safe to use in small doses.

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections at The Private Clinic are only performed by registered and experienced doctors, surgeons or nurses. Click here to book a consultation with one of our skin specalists to find out more about wrinkle relaxing treatments.

How do wrinkle relaxing injections work?

Wrinkle relaxing injections work by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles which means that the muscle is no longer able to contract. When the muscle contracts and relaxes this then causes wrinkles in the treated area to soften and reduce in appearance. As there will be no movement in the muscle it can also help to prevent new wrinkles from forming.

What is the difference between Wrinkle Relaxing injections and fillers?

Wrinkle Relaxing injections are essentially used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles. Dermal Fillers however are used to restore volume back into areas that have lost it. Dermal Filler can be used for deep wrinkles as it works to plump the skin and smooth the surface.

If you are unsure which treatment is more suitable for you then click here to book a consultation with one of our expert doctors, nurses or surgeons.

Who will be performing the treatment?

Wrinkle Relaxing injections at The Private Clinic are only performed by a fully qualified doctor or registered nurse prescriber who understands the complex anatomy of the face. Botulinum toxin is a prescription-only medicine in the UK, which means it can only be prescribed to the patient by a qualified prescriber although there is currently no UK law about who is licensed to perform the treatment.

When it comes to choosing your wrinkle relaxing injection practitioner you should be asking about their training and experience, ask to see before and after photographs of previous patients and check to see if they are registered with a professional body such as the General Medical Council (GMC), British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) or British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN).

It is important that you feel completely comfortable with your choice of practitioner for wrinkle relaxing injections.

At The Private Clinic, all injectable consultations are carried out by one of our experienced doctors,  nurses or surgeons that are trained in aesthetics.

How do I choose a clinic?

Wrinkle-relaxing injections should only be carried out in an appropriate clinical environment that is clean and safe to avoid any risk of infection. When it comes to choosing a clinic you should research if the clinic as a whole is registered with national bodies such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who ensure that treatments are being performed in a safe environment.

The Private Clinic  is an advocate for the clinical governance criteria set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), under the responsibility of the Nominated Individual (NI), and this is reflected not only in the service that we provide to our patients but also in our exemplary regulatory record.

Do the Wrinkle Relaxing injections hurt?

The pain you experience from Wrinkle Relaxing injections should be minimal as the needle used is very fine and only a tiny amount of substance is used. Like most injection, the point of entry may be a little painful but the treatment is very quick making it bearable. Some patients choose to take painkillers before treatment but anti-inflammatory painkillers such as ibuprofen and aspirin can thin the blood which will heighten the risk of bruising post-procedure and your doctor or nurse may advise against treating you. If you do feel you need to take a painkiller before treatment then a non-inflammatory medication like paracetamol is the safest option. You must always be honest and upfront about what medication you are on before having any treatment.

How many Wrinkle Relaxing injections will I need?

The amount of wrinkle relaxing injections required depends on the areas that are being treated.  For many patients, 1 wrinkle relaxing treatment is enough to get the results that they are aiming to achieve, for those who are having treatment for the first time then you may need to return for top-up treatment as it is common for medical practitioners to start gradually as it is easier to add to the treatment then reverse the effects.

To find out how many areas you require treating visit us at a clinic near you for a consultation with our specialists.

Where will the treatment be carried out?

Wrinkle relaxing injections at The Private Clinic are always carried out in a professional clinical environment that meets strict clinical standards that have been stipulated by industry regulators such as CQC.

We have clinics located across the UK in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Buckinghamshire, Leeds, Manchester and Northampton. Click here to book a consultation at a clinic near you.

How long does the treatment take?

The time it takes to perform a wrinkle relaxing injection treatment will all depend on the amount of areas that are being treated. Generally, it takes around 15 minutes to perform but appointments can be up to 30 minutes. Once the treatment is complete you will be able to leave the clinic straight away and no downtime is required.

How soon will I see the results after Wrinkle Relaxing injections?

The results from wrinkle relaxing injections are not immediate and it can take up to 10 days for your treatment to take effect and for the results to be fully obvious.

The chemical reaction for botulinum toxin can take different times to develop between patients, which is why some patients may see results quicker compared to others. You will be offered a two week review appointment which is where you will be able to come in and your medical practitioner will be able to see if any additional injections are required.

Will my face be frozen after Wrinkle Relaxing injections?

You will be able to move your face after treatment. The ‘frozen’ look that is commonly associated with Wrinkle Relaxing injectables is caused when too much toxin is administered into one area. At The Private Clinic our qualified practitioners aim to give you the most natural-looking results by only targeting the specific muscles responsible for the wrinkles and fine lines meaning that your normal facial expressions will be unaffected.

How long will the results last?

The effects from Wrinkle Relaxing injections can last from three to six months, at which point you can make an appointment for your next round of treatment. Clinical studies indicate that this treatment has a cumulative effect, so you should need fewer injections as time goes on. For the best results we recommend that you exercise and use the treated muscles areas for a few hours after treatment by frowning or lifting the eyebrows which allows the toxin to reach all of the muscle.

What happens after treatment?

After you have had wrinkle relaxing injections at The Private Clinic we offer you a check-up appointment 2 weeks later so we can review your results. Leaving the clinic you will be able to carry on with your daily activities although it is recommended that for 24 hours post-procedure you avoid;

  • Strenuous exercise
  • Rubbing or massaging the face
  • Tight headwear (if treated in the forehead)
  • Alcohol

We also recommend that you try and keep upright for at least 4 hours. You may experience some redness in the treated areas but this should fade over the course of the day, bruising after treatment is rare but it will fade over 48 hours.

Can I apply make-up after treatment?

We usually advise for patients to not wear any make-up for at least 4 hours after having treatment but this mainly because we don’t want you applying pressure to the face whilst you apply the products.

How soon can I exercise after Wrinkle Relaxing injections?

We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-procedure. This is down to the risk of bruising and the Botulinum Toxin substance moving to other areas of your face. We also recommend avoiding activities such as yoga or pilates for 24 hours as inverted positions can also cause the substance to move to other muscles in the face whilst it is still settling.

Can I cleanse my face after treatment?

You will be able to cleanse and moisturise your face as normal post-procedure however we recommend that you avoid massaging or rubbing the face ideally for 24 hours.

Are there any side effects?

Only tiny amounts of Botulinum Toxin are used, so this treatment is not harmful. The most common side effects are temporary and localised bruising, slight redness of the skin and occasionally slight swelling at the injection site. Rare side effects are; bruising/swelling/redness at injection site, allergic reactions, infection, nausea, drooping of the eyebrow or upper eyelid or swelling and redness in eyelids, headache or flu-like symptoms, occasional numbness, rash, photosensitivity, dry mouth, dizziness and dry skin.

Can I have another facial treatment after having Wrinkle Relaxing injections?

We recommend that you wait at least 7 days after having Wrinkle Relaxing injections before having another treatment such as a microdermabrasion, chemical peel, laser or even a sun bed.

Can Wrinkle Relaxing Injections prevent ageing?

Regular facial movement such as squinting and frowning can cause wrinkles and lines to form. Botulinum toxins restrict this movement which essentially means that it can delay the formation of lines and wrinkles which is where the reports of having regular Wrinkle Relaxing injections can delay or prevent the signs of ageing has come from.

Do I need to continue having treatment once I start?

If you stop having anti-wrinkle injections then your face will just gradually go back to how it was before you started treatment. Wrinkle Relaxing injections do not make your wrinkles worse so any changes to your wrinkles after you stop having treatment are often down to your face naturally ageing whilst you was used to the smoother appearance.

Who is this treatment suitable for?

Wrinkle Relaxing injections are suitable for anyone who is experiencing and is upset with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is suitable for men and women from the mid-twenties upwards.

Wrinkle Relaxing injections are not suitable for anyone who;

  • Has had a previous allergic reaction to Botulinum toxin type A injections.
  • Has an infection on the areas to be treated
  • Is under 18 years of age
  • Has a muscle problem or disease that affects the muscles such as Eaton Lambert syndrome
  • Is pregnant or breast feeding
  • Is taking blood thinning tablets

The best way to find out if you are suitable for wrinkle relaxing injections is to book a consultation to see one of our specialists.

How soon can I travel after Wrinkle Relaxing injections?

In some cases the changes in air pressure can affect the results of treatment causing the Botulinum Toxin substance to spread into other areas but this is rare. We usually advise patients to avoid flying for 24-48 hours to ensure that they achieve the best results.

Wrinkle Relaxing injections do not affect your ability to drive however or use other public transport such as train or bus.

Are Wrinkle Relaxing Injections safe?

Wrinkle Relaxing injections are made from the drug called Botulinum Toxin which has been FDA approved for both medical and cosmetic purposes for over 20 years. Side effects can occur but they are rare. At The Private Clinic we like our patients to be fully aware of all treatment risks so this will all be fully discussed in your consultation with one of our doctors, nurses or surgeons.

Comments from patients

I have been attending The Private Clinic of Harley Street in Bristol for over a year now for regular Botox injections to eliminate some fine lines around my eye area and deeper frown lines between my eyebrows. I have always found the overall service the clinic provide outstanding from the initial discussion and advice with the clinic manager Catherine to the extremely friendly welcome you receive from the reception staff. The clinician Lesley who carries out the Botox puts you at ease and explains the procedure clearly and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask any questions you may have. I am very happy with the results achieved which is why I continue to return. I have recommended the Bristol clinic to friends and family some of whom have since also visited the clinic and been equally impressed.

Karen, Bristol

I go to The Private Clinic in Bristol on Whiteladies Road and I see Lesley the nurse for my fillers and Botox. Lesley is incredibly professional and able to put you at ease immediately. She is honest and gives excellent advice and is able to point out areas that need a “tweak” that I would otherwise miss. Her work is to an extremely high standard and she is so very gentle and thoughtful and always assesses pain threshold etc right throughout the procedure. I would comfortably recommend Lesley to anyone without hesitation even to the most nervous of clients.

Julie, Bristol

I have just had my very first treatment ever at the Bristol Private Clinic.
I was nervous when I went as I have never had any treatment for Botox or fillers before. Lesley Dean was my nurse who completed the treatment and made me feel so at ease. Everything was explained, step by step and gave me the confidence to look forward to my continued treatment. When I arrived at the clinic I was met by the very professional and lovely Cat on reception who also made me feel very comfortable both before and after my treatment. Thank you to the clinic I would not think twice about this warm, welcoming and professional clinic.

David, Bristol

I have been coming to The Private Clinic  for a few years now and have wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. I have to say, the results are always amazing. It is a really friendly environment and Mel Recchia who does my treatments, always puts me at ease. None of my friends and family are aware I have been coming here for years – the results are that good! Well worth the money.


My mother and I went to The Private Clinic in Northampton for wrinkle injections and lip fillers. We both booked a joint appointment with Dr Richard Brighton Knight. Firstly, I was amazed how much cheaper the cost of the treatment was, but more importantly, how thorough the consultation was with Richard and how pain free and quick the treatments were for both Mum and I. It took 30mins for us both! Dr Richard has over 9 years experience and he is a fantastic with a huge sense of humour and he is so down to earth which makes you feel so relaxed. Both Mum and and I hugely recommend visiting The Private Clinic for a very personal service. Plus, we were greeted at reception by the lovely Caroline that could not do enough for us and was an absolute pleasure. We will continue to return on a regular basis.
