Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Upper Face

Smooth away your frown lines

Smooth away your frown lines

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.

Common questions

  • 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.

Client reviews

Everything about my experience was wonderful. I suffer from anxiety, so I was extremely anxious beforehand, but Dr Critchley immediately put me at ease with his calming, friendly, and fun demeanour. I noticed a few reviewers saying that they had to wait a while to be seen, but this wasn't the case with me. I had a 3-5 minute wait at most. The procedure itself is very brief and I have absolutely no bruising. Before having treatment it's important to have a realistic expectation of what can be achieved. Dr Critchley was honest with me and said that my under eye circles really weren't that bad, but that we all have some sort of creasing under our eyes, meaning that no amount of filler can completely obliterate ALL traces of under eye circles. However, the fillers have done wonders for my self-esteem, as the improvement to the appearance of my eyes is substantial. Now I can happily go outside without 5 layers of concealer! I definitely wouldn't go anywhere else for my fillers. Thank you Dr Critchley!

Within 5 minutes of meeting Dr. Rupert, I knew he had the answers to what I’ve been searching for! This was my first time ever getting any cosmetic work done, so I was a little nervous, but Dr. Rupert was very reassuring. He was informative in every step throughout the process, from educating me beforehand to what exactly was happening during each injection.I really appreciate his attention to detail to ensure the most natural enhancements. Overall, I had the absolute best experience and am beyond thrilled with my results!

I am not sure about the treatment itself although Dr. Rupert as a person is nice and professional. Had to top up the Botox as did not work and still not good work after the second top up, plus I am having new wrinkles now after the dermal fillers around the mouth. Left side of the face looks different to the right side after dermal fillers. Overall, not impressed. I subsequently heard dermal fillers don't really work to get rid of marionette lines( this is my primary concern) and I can see why now. I also wish all face treatment salons/clinics start using proper day light angle rather than showing me my "before and after" photos taken in a place with no natural light.

Love love love Dr Rupert and what he does, I recommend him to all my friends. People have commented how surprised they are I’ve had Botox/fillers as it looks so natural. He makes you feel so comfortable and at ease and I trust him 100% with my face. I won’t go to anyone else.

I had been considering tear trough fillers for a while because I was very unhappy with the darkness of my under eyes. After doing some research I found the VIVA Skin Clinic and decided to book a consultation. As a newbie to cosmetic enhancements world, I was scared of what to expect and how it would all go but once I met Dr. Rupert Critchley I really felt put at ease and comfortable so I decided to go ahead not only with the tear through filler procedure but also with botox for my gummy smile. Neither of the treatments were painful, just a little unconfortable. All I can say is that Dr. Critchley is amazing and the results for both procedures made me very happy, my confidence has been boosted, I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time. Highly recommended :-)
