Anti-Wrinkle Injections Before and After Gallery

Anti-wrinkle injectables have grown in popularity over the last few years for their ability to reduce the appearance of lines caused by repeated facial expressions that crease the skin. They can also improve the shape and symmetry of your face, make you look more well rested and protect your skin against future static wrinkles.

Injectables can be used on many different parts of the face to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and create smoother skin. Frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet and neck bands are some of the most commonly injected treatment areas, with very effective results. The patients represented in the categories and photos below have all been very happy with their treatment and their experience at the VCI clinic. View our full range of anti-wrinkle treatments here.

Neck bands before and after

This patient has had her platysmal bands injected with anti-wrinkle treatments. Each band had 10 to 15 units injected.

The post photo shows a marked reduction in the appearance of platysmal bands even at full contraction. The patient experienced a mild elevation in her facial skin, due to the decreased pull from these muscles. Learn more about our neck anti-wrinkle injection treatments.

Finally, it should be noted that this combination has led to a change in the brow shape. As noted in the following before and after photos, there is a greater amount of eyebrow flare in the after shots. Both before and after pictures were taken with the face at rest and not in contraction. Learn more about forehead anti-wrinkle treatment options.

Masseter muscle before and after

25 units of anti-wrinkle injections were placed on either side of the chin. The masseter muscle is the muscle at the angle of the jawline (just below the ears) which helps us to chew. By placing anti-wrinkle injections in these muscles, the jawline is slimmed and the face looks more well proportioned. It also helps with problems such as teeth grinding and headaches as a result of this. In the photos below, you can see a noticeable difference in the patient’s facial shape.
