What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections can help tackle the signs of ageing by reducing overactive facial muscles that pull and tug on the skin – this helps your skin look smoother and tighter. The break the skin gets from the muscles continually moving, allows the skin to smooth out, giving it a fresher look and can make you look years younger.
The treatment is gentle lasting from 3-6 months and prevents those annoying fine lines developing, which give our age away – no more caking your makeup in those lines. Regular treatments 2/3 times a year can make you feel more confident and rejuvenated.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used for treating medical conditions, such as – excessive armpit sweating (Hyperhidrosis), teeth grinding (Bruxism)and headaches (Migraines).
Frown lines are deep lines in-between your eyebrows often formed when concentrating or angry. If these are not treated, over time, a permanent line can appear called the ‘11’s’ lines.
The frown lines appear as a result of 2 different muscle groups contracting called the procerus and the corrugators.
Frown lines can make people look permanently cross. They can even appear in your early 20’s due to genetic causes, so if your parents developed them at a young age, you are more likely to see them appearing over the years.
By treating with an anti-wrinkle relaxant, as soon as the fine lines appear, you can prevent deep grooves from forming and becoming permanent.
Anti-wrinkle injections even twice yearly will dramatically decrease line formation and can clear fine lines permanently in this area. It can also help relieve any tension that is held in this area due to the muscle contracting so often, which can ease headaches.
These horizontal lines appear on the upper forehead when you elevate your eyebrows. They can become deeper and more prominent in people who have a lot of expressions when talking or surprised. As the forehead is often the first area on the face we can see, these fine lines can be ageing and can also affect the way your makeup sits.
A very light treatment in this area can dramatically smooth out these lines without looking fake or affecting the level of your eyebrows. The forehead is a very delicate area to treat, and over-treatment can result in a heavy hooded look. We are particularly cautious in this area and have years of experience in treating the frontalis (forehead muscle). We take the conservative approach, but if you feel you need more, you can come back after two weeks for a free top-up.
These fine lines appear around the eyes when you smile. Unfortunately, these lines can frame the eye, making you look older, and your eyes appear smaller.
Having this area treated will help you feel more rested and brighter in the area. It won’t change the way you smile or how your face looks when you smile – it will just clear the ageing lines that have appeared over time. No one will guess you have had the treatment, but everyone will notice the fresh new you.

FROWN LINES AT D2 MEDICAL
Frown lines (Glabella lines) are most commonly seen in patients with excessive sun exposure and those who have overactivity of these muscles are often associated with frowning. Frown wrinkles are vertical lines and can signal emotions such as anger, anxiety, or fear.
People with these types of wrinkles may complain that their family, friends, or work colleagues ask why they frown a lot. Frown wrinkles are vertical lines and can be successfully treated.
FOREHEAD WRINKLES AT D2 MEDICAL
Forehead wrinkles appear in horizontal lines in the area between the eyebrows and the hairline. These wrinkles are formed during facial expression to convey emotions such as surprise or empathy.
EYE WRINKLES / LAUGHTER LINES (Crow’s Feet) AT D2 MEDICAL
Crow’s Feet wrinkles (periorbital wrinkles) are in the outer corner of the eyes and appear more prominent when laughing or smiling. Crow’s feet wrinkles can result from excessive sun exposure combined with the skin becoming less elastic with age.
