It's natural to want to look good, and in today's fast paced world our appearance can be seen as a valuable resource worth preserving. The rate at which we age is determined by genetics, lifestyle, exposure to extreme weather and a host of other conditions.
The effects are most noticeable in the face, where lines and wrinkles can conceal an otherwise attractive appearance, so it's no surprise that more people than ever, are turning to anti-wrinkle injections to restore a fresh and healthy look.
A dramatic transformation is possible with anti-wrinkle injections. Wrinkles soften if not banish almost entirely and decades are seemingly taken off your face. The delivery of injectable products allows patients to precisely target problem areas.
Concerns regarding poor outcomes such as immoveable muscles or a plastic appearance can be banished to the past, as industry standards have improved and state of the art technology introduced.
This is especially the case when anti-wrinkle injections are performed at a dedicated clinic under the guidance of an experienced and qualified Aesthetic Surgeon like Dr Pedro Valente who uses science and art to augment your features to give a fresher, softer and rejuvenated new you!
What areas are treated?
Anti-wrinkle injections commonly treat crow’s feet and frown lines near the eyes, worry lines on the forehead and marionette lines (deep ridges) that run from the mouth to chin. Anti-wrinkle injections soften unwanted facial muscle contractions that cause wrinkling, while allowing natural features and personal beauty to shine. The injections begin to work by blocking unwanted nerve action that causes wrinkles within a few days of treatments.
New varieties of injectable products (dermal fillers) also diminish wrinkles, but their action is different and they shouldn’t be compared to anti-wrinkle injections which are preferable for many applications. Although anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers both restore and rejuvenate facial appearance, they work in different ways. The choice you make will have lasting effects, and for this reason a confidential and informative consultation with Dr Valente is highly recommended.
Characteristics and benefits of anti-wrinkle injections
- Injections are made into facial muscles to relax unwanted nerve action

- Effects last for up to six months and wear off gradually
- Injections are also known to treat migraines, teeth grinding and excessive sweating in the hands, armpits and feet

Although results vary according to the individual and a repeat treatment will be required at some point, overall outcomes and client satisfaction has improved markedly in recent years. Your anti-wrinkle injection cost will be reflected in the areas you choose to have treated. With Dr Valente there are no hidden fees, and everything can be discussed at the time of your consultation.
Anti-wrinkle injection procedure
Dr Valente precisely delivers the injection just below the skin into targeted facial muscles. The injections act by relaxing facial nerve action, diminishing lines and even preventing new lines from forming. The minuscule injections don’t damage skin and heal quickly, while visible improvements to facial features become increasingly noticeable in the days and weeks that follow.
Improvements are quite rapid, and after a short time your facial muscles will ease and relax, accompanied by a visible reduction in lines and wrinkles. Within the first week your natural looking face, glowing complexion and bright smile will become permanent features of your rejuvenated appearance.
