Most of us want to look and feel young for as long as possible, so it’s no surprise that non-invasive facial aesthetic treatments like anti-wrinkle injections have become hugely popular in recent years. If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution for lines and wrinkles, we may have just the treatment for you.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which is injected into the skin to soften the complexion and reduce the visibility of facial wrinkles, folds, and lines. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to target several areas of the face and is most commonly employed to target smile and frown lines, laughter lines, and crow’s feet. An anti-wrinkle injection produces smoother, more youthful skin without the need for surgery, and it can help you to look and feel younger for longer.
Anti-wrinkle injections work by restricting muscle contraction in the facial muscles. When an anti-wrinkle injection is injected into the skin, it blocks nerve signals from the brain, preventing the muscles from contracting. This causes the muscles to relax and the skin to soften, reducing the visibility of lines. Anti-wrinkle injections are a temporary solution, and the results usually last for around 3-6 months.
Our skin bears the brunt of the natural ageing process, and signs of ageing can also become more apparent as a result of lifestyle and environmental factors. If you’ve started to notice lines and wrinkles when you look in the mirror or see photographs of yourself, this can knock your confidence. If you’re self-conscious about your appearance, or you simply want to wind back the clock and enjoy a more youthful appearance, anti-wrinkle injections can make you look and feel better without the need to risk surgery or undergo invasive treatment that requires weeks of recovery. Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe, non-invasive solution for wrinkles, and they can make a difference in a matter of days.
Before you have anti-wrinkle injections you will have a consultation, and our expert practitioners will discuss the treatment process with you and go through the areas you want to address. Some people choose to target just one specific zone, for example, the skin around the eyes or the forehead, while others will opt for multiple areas. When you come in for treatment, we will target the agreed sites using a very fine needle. A small amount of botulinum will be injected into the skin using a precision procedure, which is known to achieve incredible results. We aim for a very natural look and we control the amount of fluid very carefully. After treatment, it takes 2-3 days for the full effects of the injections to become apparent. The results of treatment usually last up to 6 months.
Anti-wrinkle injections are approved treatments, which produce amazing results with minimal risk of side-effects and complications when administered by trained professionals. At Baker Street Dental, we have expertise in this area of treatment, and our friendly, knowledgeable, experienced dentists will always go the extra mile to ensure amazing results.

Some people have reservations about having anti-wrinkle injections because they have a fear of needles, or they’re anxious about pain. The treatment isn’t painful, and there’s nothing to worry about, but if you are concerned about pain, we can apply a topical anaesthetic to your skin to numb the skin and prevent any discomfort. The needle we use is very fine, and the skin heals very quickly.
