Anti-wrinkle injections - Stonehaven Dental Practice

Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti wrinkle injections are used to create a fresher and more youthful appearance by causing a temporary
freezing of the treated facial muscles.

Purified protein is injected into specific muscles in the face to temporarily relax them, softening facial expressions and helping to reverse the signs of ageing. Results appear gradually and are usually fully visible 2 weeks following treatment. You will be able to carry on with your day after the treatment without any downtime. Anti-wrinkle injections can be combined with dermal fillers for optimum facial rejuvenation.

Anti wrinkle injections are considered to be a medical treatment that should be carried out in a controlled clinical environment and administered by an experienced medical professional. Our clinicians are very experienced, medically qualified, registered practitioners so you will be treated professionally and safely.

We believe in a natural approach to injectable treatment allowing movement and expression so you will look fresh, not frozen.

Treatment Price

Fees start from £250 for one area. A deposit of £50 is payable when booking your first consultation which will be deducted from the cost of treatment.


Keeping your facial muscles active after the procedure will help the treatment to take effect. Try to avoid any unnecessary touching of your face during the 24 hour period directly after your treatment.

Do not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your treatment.

Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.

* Results may vary from person to person


Who should have Anti-wrinkle injections?
They are the treatment of choice for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes which they wish to reduce.
What will the treatment involve?
The treatment will involve a doctor making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.
What happens after treatment?
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.

After 4-10 days you will notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles, and this result will last approximately 4-6 months.*

What areas can benefit from an anti-wrinkle injection?
Anti – wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places:

  • Forehead/brow
  • Between the eyes
  • Sides of the eyes
How long do the effects of an anti-wrinkle injection last?
The results usually last for around four-six months, after which you may wish to return for another treatment.*
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment but these usually subside within 24 hours.
You should not have this treatment if:

  • The injection site is infected
  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis).
