Anti-Wrinkle Injections & Dermal Fillers
Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are both cosmetic treatments used to reduce the signs of aging, but they work in different ways.
Botulinum Toxin is the most popular and effective anti-wrinkle paralysis agent. It relaxes the muscle to reduce movement, making wrinkles and fine lines smoother. Dermal Filler is a hyaluronic acid. It adds volume and hydration to the treated area. It plumps and lifts up the area to replace collagen loss. All the treatments are planned individually to meet your specific needs.

What Is Anti-Wrinkle Inj. Treatment?
The Anti-Wrinkle Injections reduce the movement of muscles in the chosen areas of the face, thereby decreasing the appearance of creases in the skin over those muscles. Within two weeks the creases (worry lines, frown lines, crows feet etc) become less noticeable or even fade away completely. There are different products that can be used for an ‘anti-wrinkle’ treatment, in our clinic we use the original Allergan products unless, following your consultation, the doctor feels that a different product would be more suitable for your needs. The injections are a prescription-only medication and cannot be administered by anyone other than a Doctor or Dentist in Ireland.
You'll be advised of the possible result of the anti-wrinkle injections treatment and the total cost before the treatment starts. Complementary 2-3 week review/top up within all prices.

Common areas to be treated are: (each considered as one area of Botox):
The horizontal lines running across the forehead are called "worry lines" as they make you look unhappy and worried when you're really not! Depending on your preference Dr Richard can either make them much less noticable or completely disappear. This area responds really well to the anti-wrinkle toxin treatment so our policy is to use small amounts of Botox initially as we can always add more FREE of charge during the follow-up visit (within 4 weeks of the initial appointment).
The vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows are called "frown lines". These lines can make you look angry and often older. They can usually be very effectively treated with anti-wrinkle toxin and in some cases with Dermal Fillers. The anti-wrinkle injection into the muscles causes the lines to be treated fully (to completely obliterate movement) or partially - depending on the amount of toxin used.
The lines that appear around your eyes when you smile are called "crow's feet" or simply "smile lines". You might have them from childhood or they can develop later in life - either way "smile lines" can be very effectively treated with anti-wrinkle toxin.
Non-surgical "brow lift" can help reduce excess skin hooding over the outer part of the eye and achieve the youthful "seagull wing" eyebrow look. The procedule helps to open the eyes up and reveal more of the upper eyelid.
Hyperhidrosis (excess underarm sweating) affects up to 1% of the population. This condition can be quickly and effectively treated with anti-wrinkle toxin. Treatment takes 20 - 30 minutes and effects last up to ten months. Dr Richard will explain the pros and cons and together you will decide if the treatment is right for you.
The results last between 6 months and two years depending on your metabolism and the type of product used to correct the lines.
During your pre-treatment consultation with our doctors, you will be advised of the possible results, side effects and the total cost.
Is Dermal Filler Treatment Right for You?
Dermal Fillers are very safe injectable products (such as Emarvel, Teosyal, Restylane, Juvaderm, Belotero) which replace lost soft tissue. Dermal Filler consultation is FREE & treatment is on the same day if requested. Results are immediate.
Patients might experience some slight swelling or redness, but this disappears in a day or two. Local anaesthetic is used to remove any pain involved with the procedure.
Common areas to be treated are:
Lip Fillers are used to replace or add volume to the lips. The whole appointment takes about 30 minutes and requires use of a gentle anesthetic (usually a numbing cream). A tiny needle is then used to inject the product into the lips – most people find it painless.
Injecting cheek volumising product into the cheeks below the natural cheek fat pad can be one of the most dramatic, yet ‘hard-to-put-your-finger-on’ improvements to the face. It is a very effective treatment called the ‘liquid cheek lift’. Results are immediate!
The lines can make you look older, tired, or unhappy – even though you feel young and vibrant. Fortunately they are easily treated with Dermal Fillers. The procedure takes 5 minutes, you will see dramatic improvement instantly! Again, usually an anaesthetic is used (numbs up the area allowing needles to be used painlessly to inject filler to replace volume which has been lost over time).
