Google ‘anti-wrinkle injections’ and you’ll get some 520,000 responses. That’s a heap of information! We can’t blame you for feeling a little confused. Here’s your complete, no-nonsense guide to anti-wrinkle injectables and tissue fillers.

What are they? And how do they work?

Anti-wrinkle injections use a natural, purified protein to temporarily relax facial muscles that causes lines and wrinkles. It is also used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and migraines.

Tissue fillers use Hyaluronic Acid to restore definition to the face, to enlarge the lips or cheeks or to enhance facial contours . Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring component; the level of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin diminishes as we age, leaving our skin dryer, thinner and less pump. Tissue fillers reverse the ageing process by restoring these levels.
