Anti-Wrinkle Injections Botox Essex

Anti-wrinkle injections

As we age, wrinkles and various facial expressions can develop naturally. Nuovo Clinic offers anti-wrinkle injections to help smooth out these wrinkles, restoring a more youthful appearance to your skin.


Botulinum Toxin

Anti-wrinkle injections consist of a natural protein capable of interrupting muscle contractions, thereby preventing the formation of creases and wrinkles caused by expressions like frowning and squinting.

What is Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. In a purified form,; as is the case with many drugs/medications such as Penicillin, Botulinum toxin is a very safe, effective treatment not only used in cosmetic clinics, but also for a number of medical conditions, including migraine and excessive sweating.  

Our anti-wrinkle injections are administered by our accomplished Advanced Aesthetic Nurses, who possess extensive expertise in injectable anti-wrinkle skin treatments. During a consultation, they will provide comprehensive guidance on the diverse treatment options available to you.

The entire process at our Essex clinic typically lasts approximately 20 minutes. You’ll be well-informed about the procedure before receiving the anti-wrinkle treatment because you will have already had a thorough face-to-face consultation with our team. During this consultation, we will have addressed your suitability for the treatment, explained the intricacies of the anti-wrinkle procedure, and discussed its particulars.

It’s advisable to allocate a 24-hour period for recovery after the procedure.
Nevertheless, in practice, aside from possible minor bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site,
we anticipate minimal to no side effects, and there should be no need for any downtime.

You can expect to observe the initial visible effects of your anti-wrinkle injections around 2-3 days following the treatment,
and the full, optimal results should become evident within 12-14 days. Your enhanced appearance is likely to endure for a duration
of 3-4 months before a follow-up treatment is recommended at our Braintree aesthetic clinic to sustain your rejuvenated look.

We use extremely fine needles when administering the Botox to ensure minimal discomfort during the procedure.
The anti-wrinkle treatment will then be precisely delivered into the specific muscles that you discussed with the practitioner beforehand.

Having obtained FDA approval for cosmetic applications several years ago, anti-wrinkle injections are regarded as a treatment with very low associated risks.
Botox, in particular, boasts an excellent safety track record. While there is a more severe potential side effect known as eyebrow drooping, it is exceedingly rare.

On the day of your treatment, you will receive guidance on aftercare measures to minimise swelling and bruising.
We recommend avoiding excessive heat and strenuous physical activity for up to 48 hours following the procedure.
If you find it necessary to schedule a follow-up appointment after two weeks, our skin clinic will ensure you are informed.



The region surrounding our eyes is frequently the initial indicator of our age. Eye injections offer a notable reduction in these lines. In cases of deep wrinkles, this procedure can be combined with a gentle filler to achieve a smoother and softer, wrinkle-free look.


Over time, due to habits like frowning, squinting, and concentrating, frown lines can develop on our foreheads. Our treatment aims to effectively smooth out these wrinkles and lines on the forehead.


Our skin naturally loses its elasticity, leading to the development of fine lines around the lips and mouth. Our anti-aging injections are specifically crafted to diminish these lines and restore a more youthful appearance to your mouth area.


Typically, our attention is drawn to facial signs of ageing, and we may overlook the ageing indicators on our neck. Our anti-aging injectables are designed to relax neck cords, effectively addressing neck band concerns.


Bunny lines are the wrinkles that become noticeable along and across the bridge of the nose, typically visible when you smile or laugh. Treatment for bunny lines is straightforward and swift, involving injections on either side of the nose.


Inspired by the iconic Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, this treatment aims to redefine the jawline and enhance the appearance of the neckline, resulting in a rejuvenated effect and smoother skin.

Anti-wrinkle Injections FAQs

What should I do before treatment?

It is important you tell your practitioner about any medicines or dietary supplements you are taking, some medicines can adversely affect the way the toxin works or increase your risk of bruising.

If you are taking supplements such as Vitamin A, C or E, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, fish oils, St. Johns Wort or some pain killing medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen, then these can increase your risk of bruising and it may be advisable to stop taking them a few days before your treatment. It is also advisable that you do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment, for the same reason.

It is not advisable to have treatment if you are feeling at all unwell.

Make-up will need to be removed prior to the injections and you will be advised not to reapply it for 12 hours in order to reduce the risk of infection or irritation at the injection sites.

Be aware of the necessary after care advice and that your schedule allows for you to follow it.

  • Initial effects may become noticeable within the first 2 to 5 days.
  • The muscle reaches its peak relaxation effect at around 14 days following the procedure.
  • Continuous improvement in results may be observed for up to 4 weeks or even longer.
