What is anti-wrinkle treatment?
Anti-wrinkle treatment is used on the upper part of your face. It’s used primarily to treat frown lines, deep creases between eyebrows, and other wrinkles and lines on the forehead.
Wrinkles on other parts of your face are treated with a different injectable treatment, known as dermal fillers. Many patients have both anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments; your exact beauty goals will be discussed at your initial half-hour Consultation.
Anti-wrinkle treatment is performed using the Botulinum Toxin, which is a protein and neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. This has been used in cosmetic procedures for more than 22 years in millions of patients worldwide. It has both US FDA approval and European licence approval.
Whilst the term ‘Botox’ has become a generic term for anti-wrinkle injections, not all line-smoothing injections are made with Botox® or Bocouture®. There are many other brands that give you similar results and in some instances may be preferable given the clinical circumstances.
Serving patients across Cheshire, our Botox treatments are administered by experienced professionals who are dedicated to helping you achieve your beauty goals.
Why have anti-wrinkle injections?
- Simple: anti-wrinkle treatments are non-invasive and are quick to administer. (However, we take our time in getting to know you and your beauty goals, so that the anti-wrinkle treatment are right for you.)
- Safe: anti-wrinkle injections are relatively safe compared to surgical treatments. Here at Canova Medical, our injections have US FDA/ European license approval. You’ll be given full details of any possible side effects at your Consultation.
- No downtime: You can return to your normal activities the next day (or even the same day, if you avoid strenuous activity).
- It works! You only need to look at the eternally-young celebrities to see what Botulinum can do. (And you can also see Before and After Pictures from our clinic.)
- Long-lasting: The results of your treatments normally last 3 to 4 months, though some patients report that their treatments last up to 6 months.
Nina is fantastic. She was informal but very professional and made me feel at ease. The results are great, and I can definitely recommend her treatments.

What happens during the anti-wrinkle treatment?
Because you will have had a 30-minute Consultation with your specialist prior to your treatment, they will know exactly what to do. They’ll make sure that you’re happy and comfortable… the treatment itself is very quick. No local anaesthetic is required.
You’ll be invited to stay for a while in the Reception area after your treatment, as we want you to be sure that you’re feeling 100% before you leave.
You’ll have the area to yourself for at least half an hour (so there’s no chance of you being seen by anyone).
Does it hurt to have anti-wrinkle treatments?
Like any injection, there will be a small amount of discomfort. However, the needles used are very fine (like acupuncture needles), and the discomfort is very brief… and it will be well worth it! By the time you’re relaxing in the reception area, the discomfort will be long gone.
Are there any possible side effects?
Though anti-wrinkle treatments have been deemed safe for the improvement of moderate to severe wrinkles, there will always be potential side effects from the use of injections and medication. Some of the temporary side effects include:
- Initial discomfort from the injection
- Some bruising and mild swelling
- Occasional numbness of the forehead
- Temporary double vision
- Drooping eyelid, uneven smile or loss of the ability to close eyes.
These side effects are temporary, and we invite you to relax with freshly made Italian Coffee in the comfortable Reception area until you’re ready to return home.
What happens after the treatment?
You will be provided with helpful instructions after your treatment. These instructions will help to minimise any side effects; and extend the longevity of your treatment.
Some of the instruction you’ll receive will include:
- Do not apply make-up within the next 4 hours.
- Do not lie down, bend forward or do strenuous exercises for 4 hours after the treatment.
- Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours.
The Surgeon or Nurse will give you an information sheet with all the instructions for you to take home.
What kind of results can I expect?
The results appear gradually over the next few days, and will normally last 3 to 4 months, though some patients report that their anti-wrinkle treatments last up to 6 months.
Do you have any Before and After Pictures?
Yes, you can see Before and After pictures here. They are all patients of Canova Medical who have kindly consented to let us use their photographs, as they are so happy with their results.
Will anti-wrinkle treatments make my face look ‘frozen’, like some celebrities?
If you’re looking for the ‘frozen’ look, you’re in the wrong place. At Canova Medical we promote a natural look that enhances your features.
Hint: Many of our patients for anti-wrinkle procedures do not tell their husbands or friends about their treatment… the look can be subtle enough that people may wonder if you’ve had any skin treatments, but they won’t know for sure.
What if I have any other questions?
From Botox injections to other non-surgical wrinkle treatments, our Wilmslow clinic offers a range of options to help you look and feel your best. If you have any questions about any treatments, please contact the friendly team at Canova Medical – we’d be delighted to help you and answer any questions you may have.
What’s the next step?
The next step to looking finally getting rid of annoying wrinkles is to arrange a Consultation.
This will last for half an hour, and will be with the anti-wrinkle professional that will be administering your treatment. They will take the time to get to know you and your desired outcomes; obtain your medical history; and make recommendations based on your specific needs.
