Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most popular aesthetic treatment in Ireland today. More commonly known as Botox, this non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by targeting specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles to appear. Anti-Wrinkle injections offer prevention & treatment at the same time and are a safe and effective aesthetic treatment to get smoother younger-looking skin. Cosmetic injections are administered by our highly qualified aesthetic doctors after a complimentary consultation to give the natural younger look you want.


The anti-wrinkle injections take about 15 minutes during which a local anaesthetic is applied to the injection sites on your face. Small quantities of the anti-wrinkle treatment are injected into the face to target muscles that would’ve caused creases to appear where collagen had been broken down over time and with ageing. A follow-up review can be scheduled two weeks after the treatment.

Anti-wrinkle Injections


The ‘standard’ result offers a degree of movement in the muscle. Lines will appear reduced, skin will appear smoother and you will be able to maintain some movement associated with expression. Standard doses of anti-wrinkle injections are administered.


The ‘strong’ result offers little to no movement in the muscle. If you want a more frozen look, this is the option for you. Doses of anti-wrinkle injections administered will be higher than if you chose the ‘standard’ option.


Anti-wrinkle injections are used for a range of different areas in men and women, with the most common areas being the crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, bunny lines and barcode lines. Anti-wrinkle injections also treat areas on the face such as the masseter muscle toxin, the mentalist (chin toxin), depressor nasalis toxin, DAO (downturned mouth toxin), lip flip, gummy smile and eyelid retraction.



Areas of Anti-wrinkle Treatment


The side effects are minimal and temporary. The most common injection related reactions are:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Itching
  • Discolouration
  • Tenderness

These generally resolve within 2-7 days. If you suffer from cold sores, this treatment may trigger an outbreak.


To avoid swelling and bruising:

  • Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen, or Advil for two days after treatment, OR for one week prior to treatment
  • Do not ice the swollen area as you may disturb the product placed
  • Do not rub or massage face for four hours after treatment – this will spread the injected material to other muscles in your face
  • Avoid exercise, apart from walking, for 24 hours after treatment


Anti-wrinkle injections and Botox are essentially the same thing. Botox is a brand name for a specific type of anti-wrinkle injection that is made from botulinum toxin type A. However, there are also other brands of anti-wrinkle injections that use similar ingredients and work in the same way as Botox, such as Azzalure and Dysport.

These injections work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, thereby smoothing out lines and wrinkles on the face. They are commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines).

So while Botox is a specific brand of anti-wrinkle injection, the term “anti-wrinkle injection” can refer to any of the similar treatments that use botulinum toxin type A to reduce wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle injections are an aesthetic treatment that involves injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin type A into the muscles of the face to temporarily paralyze them. This can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly in areas where the skin is prone to creasing due to muscle movements.

Botulinum toxin works by blocking the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. When the muscles are relaxed, the overlying skin becomes smoother, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The effects of the injections typically last around 3-6 months, after which the muscles gradually regain their ability to contract and the wrinkles may reappear.

They are non-surgical treatments that can be performed in a medical setting by medical professionals and do not require any downtime for recovery.

Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles on the face. These injections contain a small amount of botulinum toxin type A, which blocks the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. When the muscles are relaxed, the overlying skin becomes smoother, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

The injection process itself is relatively quick and straightforward. A fine needle is used to inject the solution into the targeted muscles. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections typically start to appear within a few days to a week after the procedure, and they can last for around 3-6 months. Over time, the muscles gradually regain their ability to contract, and the wrinkles may reappear. To maintain the effects of the injections, repeat treatments are usually necessary.


The effects of anti-wrinkle injections typically last around 3-6 months, although this can vary depending on a number of factors, including the individual’s age, skin type, and the location and amount of the injections. Over time, the muscles gradually regain their ability to contract, and the wrinkles may reappear. To maintain the effects of the injections, repeat treatments are usually necessary.

It’s worth noting that the effects of anti-wrinkle injections can vary from person to person, and some individuals may find that they experience longer or shorter-lasting results. Additionally, the frequency of treatments may be affected by factors such as the individual’s lifestyle, desired results, budget, and tolerance for the injections.

The cost of anti-wrinkle injections can vary depending on a number of factors, including the product being used, the number of areas being treated and the amount of product used during the treatment. Take a look at our price list for more information.

Lines and wrinkles on the skin are a natural part of the aging process and are caused by a combination of factors, including:

  1. Decreased collagen and elastin production: Collagen and elastin are proteins that help keep the skin firm, smooth, and elastic. As we age, the production of these proteins decreases, causing the skin to become less elastic and more prone to wrinkles.

  2. Loss of fat and bone density: As we age, we also experience a loss of fat and bone density in the face, which can lead to sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles.

  3. Repeated facial expressions: Over time, the repeated contraction of facial muscles, such as frowning or squinting, can cause lines and wrinkles to form in the skin.

  4. Exposure to the sun: Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the skin and accelerate the aging process, leading to the formation of wrinkles.

  5. Lifestyle factors: Lifestyle factors such as smoking, poor diet, and lack of sleep can also contribute to the development of wrinkles.

While lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, there are various treatments available to help reduce their appearance, including anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and topical treatments.

One of the concerns that some people have about anti-wrinkle injections, including Botox, is that their face may look frozen or expressionless after the treatment. However, when done correctly by an experienced practitioner, this is generally not the case.

The goal of anti-wrinkle injections is to relax the targeted muscles enough to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, without completely paralyzing them. This means that you should still be able to make facial expressions, albeit with less movement in the treated areas.

In some cases, if too much Botox is injected into a particular area or if the injections are not done correctly, it is possible to have a frozen or unnatural appearance. However, this is relatively rare and can usually be avoided by choosing an experienced practitioner who has a good understanding of facial anatomy and the correct dosages of the product.

It’s important to discuss your concerns with your practitioner before the treatment and to communicate any feedback you have about the results after the procedure. This can help ensure that you are happy with the outcome of your anti-wrinkle injection treatment.

Starting anti-wrinkle injections early is often recommended as a preventative measure because it can help to slow down the development of wrinkles and other signs of aging.

As we age, the muscles that we use to make facial expressions become stronger and more prominent, leading to the development of wrinkles and fine lines. By starting anti-wrinkle injections before these wrinkles have fully formed, the muscles can be prevented from becoming stronger and causing deeper wrinkles to form.

Additionally, starting anti-wrinkle injections early can help to maintain a more youthful appearance over time. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections are temporary, typically lasting around 3-6 months. By starting the treatment earlier, you can maintain a smoother, more youthful appearance for a longer period of time.

Another advantage of starting anti-wrinkle injections early is that it can help to prevent the need for more invasive treatments in the future. For example, by using anti-wrinkle injections to prevent deep wrinkles from forming, you may be able to avoid the need for a surgical facelift or other more invasive procedures later in life.

It’s important to note that while starting anti-wrinkle injections early can be beneficial, it’s never too late to begin using these treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. A qualified practitioner can help determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs and goals.

Yes, anti-wrinkle injections can be used for a variety of other cosmetic and medical treatments besides reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Some of the other uses of anti-wrinkle injections include:

  1. Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis): Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat excessive sweating in areas such as the underarms, hands, and feet.

  2. Migraine headaches: Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to prevent or reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.

  3. Facial contouring: Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to contour the face and enhance facial features such as the jawline and cheeks.

  4. Eyebrow lift: Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to lift and shape the eyebrows, giving the eyes a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

  5. Teeth grinding (bruxism): Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to reduce the involuntary clenching and grinding of the teeth.

  6. Neck and jawline rejuvenation: Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax the muscles in the neck and jawline, reducing the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles in these areas.

  7. Gummy smile: Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to reduce the appearance of a “gummy smile” by relaxing the muscles that elevate the upper lip.

  8. Lip Flip: uses Anti wrinkle injections to relax the muscles and “flip” the lip upwards

It’s important to note that some of these treatments may require different dosages or injection techniques than those used for wrinkle reduction. It’s important to choose a qualified practitioner who has experience with these other uses of anti-wrinkle injections to ensure safe and effective treatment.


Anti-wrinkle treatment should last for around three to four months. The substances contained in the injections are broken down and absorbed by the body, and so additional treatments will be necessary to maintain your youthful look. A plan for regular follow-up treatments will be put together for you.

Could not recommend Eden Medical, Dr Emma and Valerie enough and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have treatments done. They are so welcoming and friendly, you are put at ease the minute you arrive at the clinic. I am over the moon with the results from my visit, better than I could have even expected!!! Dr Emma is so knowledgeable and gave me great advice on what treatments would suit me but with no pressure to have to have those treatments done if I did not want to myself.

I have been to Dr.Emma in the cork clinic for lip fillers a few times now and I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I went to Eden medical for my first ever treatment of anti wrinkle injections and I could not recommend them enough. They are so friendly and helpful. I was really nervous going in for the first time and they made me feel super comfortable. Dr.Cliona took the time to talk me through everything pre injection and post injection. My treatment was amazing. I was given a follow up check a few weeks later to see how I was getting on too. Their premises is also fab. I can’t wait to go back. 🙂
