Anti Wrinkle Injections

Where can anti – wrinkle injections be administered?


You can receive injections for anti -wrinkle procedures in a variety of areas on the face. For the best results Face Hub recommends injections in the muscles in the upper facial areas such as the ‘frown lines’ at the top of the forehead, ‘crow’s feet’ at the side of the eyes and the fine lines between your eyebrows. You can also decide to have the fine lines around the mouth diminished to finish off the perfect natural look.


What are the benefits to anti – wrinkle injections?


Anti-wrinkle injections are a great option if you’re looking for a quick and effective method of improving your appearance, here is why:

· Free consultation

· Quick to administer

· Minimal discomfort

· No surgery required

· Speedy recovery

· healthier, smoother, and more radiant skin

· Fast results – usually within two weeks

· Results last for around three to four months

· Bespoke rejuvenation journey for each of our Face Hub Clients.


When will I see the results?

The results are fast and can be seen within two weeks, however it is likely that you may notice a positive change much sooner. Clients at Face Hub have noticed their fine lines smoothed out and have felt the effects of a smoother more radiant face, often comparing it to looking as though they have had a great night’s sleep! The results usually last for approximately three to six months. We then would recommend for our clients to come back in for a refreshing top up to continue seeing the perfect results.


Which areas benefit from Anti – Wrinkle injections?

You can have anti-wrinkle injections in numerous areas, some of the most popular include:


· Horizontal Frown Lines

Horizontal frown lines run across the forehead and can appear when you raise your eyebrows. These lines can be softened with injections to the forehead.


· Vertical Frown Lines

Vertical frown lines appear between the eyebrows. This is caused by overuse of the muscles in this area. The l lines can be quite deep and distinct, resembling a number eleven and they often are called by the nickname ‘the 11’s’. Those with prominent vertical lines often say that they feel as though they look angry all the time which is often not the case. Anti – wrinkle injections can soften these abrasive lines.


Crow’s Feet

The term crow’s feet refer to the fine lines that appear at the corners of your eyes. They are most prevalent when you smile or are resting. The depth of the lines can vary depending on muscle use, age, gender, and ethnicity. Long term sun exposure has a large effect on the crows’ feet, and they often are more prominent in people who spend a lot of time outdoors and in the sunshine. The key for effective treatment of crow’s feet Is to start early. Preventative measures do make a difference. Our practitioners at Face Hub will advise if the lines are continuous and continue to the cheekbone you may require a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and filler – these treatments will work together to boost volume and create that smooth effect. Anti-wrinkle injections plump up the skin and provide a platform for the skin to sit on and alleviating sagging.


· Bunny Lines

Bunny lines show up when you scrunch up your nose. They can be smoothed and improved by administering small injections to the side of the nose. You can expect to see results in around two weeks, and they will last for between three and four months.


· Smokers Lines

Smokers’ lines appear just above the top lip, they are prominent in smokers (They can also be prominent in non – smokers). As we get older our collagen banks become less effective and our levels of elastin reduce and hence making lines more noticeable. Small injections can be given above the top lip to smooth out lines, preventing them from getting deeper. Results are usually be seen after two weeks. We sometimes advise a combination of treatments, such as dermal needling, PRP, dermal filler. It’s important to bear in mind that the area above your lip is on the thin side, and the results should look natural rather than over-worked. Dr. Laura Fee will advise you on what is best for you to give the best results.


· Excessive Sweating

This is a relatively painless procedure and usually takes around thirty to forty-five minutes but can have a significant impact for those that experience excessive sweating. Commonly used for anti-wrinkle treatments, Anti-wrinkle injections are also a fully licensed treatment for the management of hyperhidrosis in areas such as the armpits. During your consultation, or clinical team will review your medical history and previous treatment success to understand if there are any other more appropriate management options for your symptoms. Research has shown that Hyperhidrosis is a common condition that affects both men and women, sweaty hands are a problem for many people.


Hyperhidrosis therapy is a fantastic way to reduce embarrassing sweating and get your hyperhidrosis under control. Using anti-wrinkle injections, we can prevent your overactive nerves from sending the signal to your sweat glands, reducing sweat production, and giving you your confidence and your life back.


When used for treating hyperhidrosis, anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking nerve signals from the brain to the sweat glands. This prevents the sweat glands from over-producing sweat, significantly reducing your symptoms.


How long do the results last?

You can expect to see a significant improvement within just a few days, and the lines should continue to improve over the course of a month. Clinical trials provide evidence to show that nearly 90% of women and men rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better within one month of receiving treatment. After treatment, the skin should look smoother and less wrinkled, and you will not need to worry about the rest of your face being affected. Untreated areas will be move freely as normal – you will still be able to frown, smile and laugh (but with less obvious wrinkles)!


What are the post – treatment procedures?

You can expect anti-wrinkle injections to take effect within seven to ten days, however it can take up to two weeks for the treatment to reach their optimum results. Results tend to last between three and six months and follow up treatment is advised by the Face Hub practitioners after this period if the desired effect is to be maintained.


There are a few things to be aware of following anti-wrinkle injections, including:

· Avoid facials or face treatments for two weeks.

· Avoid vigorous exercise for twenty-four hours.

· Do not apply make up straight after.

· Practise frowning and raising your eyebrows to help toxins reach the muscle.

· Do not use aspirin, fish oil supplements, vitamin E or Ibuprofen for twenty-four hours.

· Apply ice to area for fifteen minutes every hour if bruising or swelling appears.

· Arnica cream may be applied three times per day to alleviate bruising.

· Drink plenty of water.


Are the Anti – Wrinkle Injections safe?

Anti-wrinkles injections are not only very effective in reducing the signs of aging and wrinkles, but they are also very safe. If you decide to opt for this procedure, you can expect a reduction in the wrinkles and fine lines afflicting your face. You will always be in safe hands with our medical practitioners and Dr. Laura Fee and her staff will give you the best advice in order for you to receive the best results.


How are the injections administered?

We offer a free initial consultation to establish your suitability and to understand what areas you would like to focus on, we can then discuss your requirements in terms of how many areas we will treat.


At Face Hub, we provide you with all the necessary information on the procedure, but during the consultation it is always a good opportunity to ask questions and find out what to expect. Anti-wrinkle injections are quick to administer and take about twenty minutes. You will expect to feel a “pinching” sensation as we inject you, but the procedure is relatively pain free.


How do Anti – Wrinkle Injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections force toxins to bind with muscle, thus reducing its activity. This leads to the softening or elimination of lines. Following anti – wrinkle injections, you can expect your skin to look refreshed, more youthful and a significant reduction in lines and wrinkles.


Does the procedure hurt?

Anti – wrinkle injections are given with a very fine needle. Therefore, discomfort is fleeting and minimal. The area can be numbed with an ice pack or with a local anaesthetic cream, and the whole procedure only takes around twenty minutes. Following the injection, you should not feel any soreness, and many clients are in and out of our clinic in a very short time. This means that you will be fine to drive straight after the procedure and can go about your day-to-day life after the procedure with your new glowing skin!

Dermal Fillers

This treatment can improve the look of lines around the nose and mouth, frowning lines, lines around the mouth from smoking & the apples of your cheeks. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance a thin lip line and the body of the lip to give definition and fullness which can be lost through ageing.

At Face Hub Aesthetics Clinic, we use Juvéderm dermal filler. Dermal fillers are treatments that can be done in approximately 1 hour making them quick and convenient for today’s busy lives. Dermal fillers are temporary with the effects lasting up to 1 year, although individuals will break down the product at different rates. There are no permanent effects from dermal fillers and the treatment is reversible. The fillers also have an element of local anaesthetic within them, this means that your filler injection is pain free and very comfortable. We will discuss aftercare and what to expect with you, but you may get some redness in the area and bruising straight after. For this reason, we do recommend that you allow a period of two weeks before any major event you may be attending.

Dermal fillers help skin that has been damaged from the sun, smoking and ageing skin which loses much of its elasticity and fullness. This is due to the loss of natural product within the skin called Hyaluronic Acid. Deep lines can occur and can result in a tired appearance.

We use dermal fillers to plump and enhance areas that require volume and hydration. All our fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, which is the body’s own natural skin plumper and so has almost no risk of an allergic reaction. The body re-absorbs the fillers within around 6-12 months, but this can vary depending on many factors such as age, metabolism, the normal blood flow to the face.


Dermal fillers are synthetic or natural gels that are injected into the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and add volume. Most dermal fillers used today are temporary and biodegradable

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin, but it is not as painful as it’s sounds! The procedure does come with a little discomfort and certain areas such as the lips are likely to be more sensitive than others. Dermal fillers often contain local anaesthetic, which automatically imparts pain relief whilst you are injected. Alternatively, anaesthetic cream or ice may be applied to skin to numb the area.

During your consultation, our Face Hub team will take a comprehensive medical history from you, assess your needs, and discuss your expectations. This is all essential to check if dermal fillers will be the most appropriate treatment for you.


Whilst this procedure is beneficial to many, unfortunately dermal fillers are not right for everyone, and should be avoided if you:


  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Are taking medication that impacts upon your immune system.
  • Have experienced a reaction to dermal fillers / local anaesthetic in the past.
  • Have suffered from a skin infection or are feeling unwell.
  • Have experienced problems related to bleeding.
  • Are taking medication, such as aspirin, which affects bleeding.
  • You are taking or have taken Roaccutane (acne treatment) during the last 18 months.

After your dermal filler procedure, you can expect to see a change almost immediately. However, you must keep in mind that swelling may cause the product to feel clumpy and uneven at first. The final results can be best seen after two weeks.


Results can last between four months and a whole year. At Face Hub we use the best quality fillers on the market to ensure that our clients get the best results for the longest period. You can always call us at Face Hub Facial Aesthetics if you have any aftercare queries or questions and our team of dedicated staff will always be happy to help.

Dermal fillers can do wonders for your skin. They can help to smoothen and rejuvenate tired and sagging skin to give a more youthful look to the skin. Many of the benefits include:


  • Provide fast results that last for an extended period
  • Provide natural looking results
  • Boost volume of the skin
  • Improve sagging skin
  • Noticeably reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Be administered with minimal pain / discomfort

Dermal fillers have become so popular in recent times. Our clients use dermal fillers to enhance their natural features to create flawless looking skin. Dermal fillers can enhance many areas of the face, they can be used to:


  • Plump the lips
  • Lessen and soften harsh wrinkles
  • Improve tear troughs and hollows that appear beneath the eyes
  • Hydrate the skin, refining texture and tone
  • Correct and augment facial contours – temples, jawline, nose, chin, cheeks

At Face Hub Facial Aesthetics Clinic, our team will give you the relevant guidance on aftercare. Usually, because the procedure is so minimally invasive, you should be able to get back to your normal activities promptly, however we recommend not to undertake any vigorous exercise for 48 hours after the procedure. You may experience some redness, pin prick marks, or tenderness – however this should settle down within a couple of days.


You may also notice bruising or swelling which will be more prevalent the day after the procedure – this may take a couple of weeks to fully subside. We suggest cold packs and ice to alleviate any swelling and arnica cream to reduce bruising.


Lip Fillers: The Perfect Pout at Face Hub Facial Aesthetic Clinic

The lips are highlighted among the most beautiful regions of the face. At Face Hub, our goal is always symmetrical, plump, and healthy-looking lips. Over time, sun damage, hereditary, and smoking can cause a loss of lip volume, as well as the development of unattractive perioral lines on the lips and dentilabial folds near the chin. Juvéderm is a dermal filler meant to combat cosmetic signs of aging in the face and lips. For decades, genetically thin lips and generally asymmetry would be treated with soft tissue augmentation, like fat transfer or lip implants. Recent years have seen a rise in the popularity of injectable fillers such as Juvéderm to correct naturally thin lips or to treat lips that have lost volume with age. In the hands of an expert clinician, lip filler can restore lip fullness and reshape the lips for a better pout. There are a variety of injectable filler formulations available on the market today. Juvéderm is of the most popular choices because of their active ingredient: hyaluronic acid.


Lip fillers are an effective, non-invasive way to give your lips more volume, a prettier pout or better definition. The most commonly used technique is an injectable derma-filler, which increases the volume of your lips. At Face Hub, we use the best formulated dermal filler on the market – Juvéderm. It’s a straightforward procedure that requires no surgery

Results can vary depending on each client. At Face Hub Facial Aesthetics, most patients have seen their results last up to a year with our high-quality filler, Juvéderm.

There are a multitude of lip fillers on the market at the moment due to the rising popularity and demand for the perfect pout as seen on celebrities like Kylie Jenner. At Face Hub we are dedicated to providing all clients with the best cruelty free and vegan products which is why we use Juvéderm. Juvéderm is of the most popular choices because of their active ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It stimulates the production of collagen, the connective tissue that keeps skin youthful, and attracts water to the treatment site for plumper lips!

At Face Hub we recommend:

  • Arranging a free consultation with our specialist Dr. Laura Fee
  • Discuss your options to see what is best suited for you
  • Decide on your choice of treatment
  • See the amazing results!

Depending on the area to be treated and the volume of product being administered, the process is relatively quick and should take about 30 minutes.

Any cosmetic procedure comes with risks but at Face Hub, we use the most modern and advanced equipment and products. Our team of dedicated staff are highly experienced. At Face Hub we pride ourselves on our customer care. Our facial aesthetic clinic is open 7 days a week 365 days a year, so we are always on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have.

Lip fillers are used to enhance lip volume and redefine lip shape. At Face Hub we ensure that we guide you on your lip enhancement if you want to increase the size of your lips for a natural plumper look.

Not at all! At most you will feel a slight pinch. At Face Hub we start by numbing the lips and then the actual injecting process will start. We ensure that the patient is numb before we start. Dr. Fee has experience dealing with nervous patients so don’t worry, you are in safe hands! Dr. Fee also specialises in sedation for patients who wish to be sedated for this procedure.

Recovery time is quick which is why fillers are ideal for those who want a treatment with instant effects and minimal recovery time. Most patients can return to their daily routine immediately after the procedure. Of course, there will be some tenderness around the area for about 24-48 hours afterwards. Clients may also experience some mild bruising.

Our team of professionals at Face Hub will use numbing cream to cover the lips. This will numb the lips sufficiently so that the process of the injecting is comfortable for the clients. The filler will then be injected precisely where needed.

No, your lips won’t feel any different after your injections as the nerve endings of your lips won’t be affected by the injections. This means that your lips will function the same way – even when kissing!

Profhilo Facial Injections

Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid-based treatment which tightens the skin instead of filling it. Profhilo is unique as it works to remodel your skin by encouraging the creation of four types of elastin and collagen. This treatment can improve laxity and tone, whilst boosting skin hydration, texture and adds the luminosity to help us look more rejuvenated. Profhilo can also improve the firmness of your skin, lifting it at the same time.


This treatment is aimed at patients who have visible signs of ageing skin. As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the part of the foundation that make up plumped and healthy skin. Profhilo uses advanced patented technologies to help remodel the skin. Currently, it is the only product on the market capable of stimulating the natural production of all four types of collagens, and elastin.


With visible results in as little as two visits, Profhilo continues to be the first choice for those wanting to combat ageing, l or tired-looking skin.


Profhilo stimulates four types of elastin and collagen in the skin through the slow release of hyaluronic acid. This allows for the tightening and lifting of tissue.

Five impact points are identified, and these areas are then injected on each side of the face. This technique is known as Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP). Profhilo is injected into the lower areas of the face.

This treatment is great for people aged thirty and above, those who have started to notice skin laxity and aging, and those who want to ensure that their skin is kept in the best condition as possible. At Face Hub Facial Aesthetics, we encourage these preventative measures for the skin. It will boost your skin in readiness for the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. It’s never too early or late to look after your skin by increasing and improving hydration and strengthening elastin and collagen.

The results of Profhilo which include elasticity, firmness and reinvigoration of the skin typically last for around 6 months. Results vary from patient to patient and are dependent on age, lifestyle and the condition of the skin currently. At Face Hub, our clients are advised to have 2 sessions with a space of a month between the treatments to ensure the best results are achieved. Our team of medical experts will then look to do maintenance sessions as required, dependent on how the skin responds to the treatment.

Profhilo can do wonders for the skin, and has many benefits which include: 

• Decreases the appearance of wrinkles and lines 

• Tightens loose and sagging skin. • Increases the health and vibrancy of your skin. 

• Improves the laxity of your skin. 

• Minimal recovery time required following procedure. 

• Long-lasting effect.

Profhilo is best used to treat the neck, face, upper arms, above the knees and hands. Our team of dedicated staff will ensure that you get the best treatment for your chosen area.

A free face to face consultation with Dr. Laura Fee is the best way to decide what treatment works best for you. She can advise you on what treatment would work best for your skin and if there is a noticeable laxity or deep folds, we would be advising Profhilo as a treatment that will replace elastin and collagen and will also help to strengthen the skin

Injectable procedures may cause a slight discomfort to patients but with Profhilo there are minimal injection points, so discomfort is minimal with this treatment.

The five-point technique causes insertion points to be noticeable at first, however they will become less obvious over the course of the day. After treatment, we would advise to avoid excessive physical exertion for 24 hours. We also avoid sun exposure where possible as this may prolong swelling and bruising.
