Upper Face

Anti wrinkle injections are a fantastic treatment for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the upper face.

They can be used on a number of concerns like; forehead wrinkles, eleven lines (between the eyebrows), frown lines and crow’s feet. They can also be used to lift the eyebrows in a non surgical brow lift. Anti wrinkle injections work by targeting the muscles in the face that cause the appearance of wrinkles and relaxing them so that the surface of the skin appears smoothed and line free.

At VIVA Skin Clinics, Dr Rupert is proud to use Botox by Allergan, one of the safest and most renowned brands.

Anti wrinkle injections are generally a comfortable treatment that is well tolerated. You may feel a little sensitivity at the point of application, though this can be minimised through the use of a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. If you have any concerns, please discuss this with us at your consultation and we will be happy to help alleviate your concerns.

As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Any potential side effects will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Rupert. Any swelling will typically subside within around 48 hours and bruising can be easily concealed with makeup.

This treatment works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. You can expect to see much reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles at the point of application and immediate surrounding area giving you a more youthful look. We always aim to ensure that results appear natural as opposed to ‘frozen’, which is a common concern for people looking to undergo this treatment. Post treatment, the result will continue to develop, and you will enjoy a refreshed and rejuvenated look to your upper face.

We use FDA approved Botox injections for the treatment of upper face wrinkles. This treatment has been through many studies to prove its effectiveness, and it has an excellent safety record. As with any injectable treatment, you should ensure that your practitioner is highly skilled. Botulinum Toxin A is a prescription only medicine, and therefore should only be administered by a Doctor, Dentist or Prescribing Nurse. It is important that you always check the credentials of your practitioner prior to treatment.
