What is it?

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat lines and wrinkles. It is an approved cosmetic medication to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and excessive sweating. It has an active ingredient of Botulinum Toxin which is a natural purified protein. Botulinum Toxin reduces muscle movement by interrupting the nerve-muscle pathway. It does this by preventing the release of the neurotransmitter which stimulates muscle fibre contraction ‘Acetycholine’ (ACH) from the nerve ending resulting in a temporary paralysis of the muscle in the treatment area.

Treatment Details

Pre Treatment

To reduce the risk of bruising we recommend avoiding non prescribed medications that may affect this. Some examples are: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications Aspirin, Ibuprofen- Health supplements high dose Vitamin C, Fish oils, galic, vitamin E- Consuming alcohol 24-72 hours prior to treatment.

Post Treatment

Post treatment you may experience mild redness, swelling and bruising to the area treated:
• Swelling and redness soon settles after 20-30 minutes.
• You can continue your daily activities and wear some light mineral makeup to cover the areas.
• Do not apply prolonged pressure or any skin treatments in the treatment area for the next 2 weeks.
• Avoid lying flat for the next 4 hours.
We advise for the next 24 hours:
• No strenuous exercise, hot spas/saunas, excessive alcohol consumption, active skin care e.g products containing retinol , vitamin C , AHA/BHAs.


Over the next 3-5 days following treatment you will start to notice a reduction in the muscle movement as the anti-wrinkle injection starts to take effect. For optimal results allow a full 2 weeks post treatment for the final result. Generally, it lasts for 3-4 months but can wear off more quickly, this is dependent on strength and size of muscle, dose of anti-wrinkle, lifestyle factors / metabolism, frequency of treatment.

Side Effects

Common: Bruising, swelling and redness at injection site. Tenderness at injection site, headache (following frown and forehead treatment). Uncommon: Tiredness/ fatigue double vision, unwanted nearby muscle weakness due to product diffusion / spread of toxin (drooping eyelid and/ or brow ptosis), dry eyes infection.

I have been a long time client of Sandika’s. She is a true professional, very happy to recommend her to anyone. I wouldn’t trust anyone else.



Sandika is a wonderful injector. I went to her for my first ever treatment and was rather nervous. However she made me feel at ease as she explained everything to me and worked at my pace. I felt no pressure and she really listened to my concerns. Sandika treated my anti wrinkle and tear troughs and I am super happy with them. She was very gentle. I would highly recommend going to.



When it comes to your face you need someone you can trust-I have been having injectables by Nurse Sandika for the last 10 years and wouldn’t see anyone else, she is honest, professional, knowledgeable and eye for detail is fabulous for the natural end result you want. Highly recommend Sandika.
