“Ageing is a fact of life, but looking your age is not!”

Wrinkles, those charming markers of life’s journey, are perfectly normal and natural – we all get them! However, if you find yourself bothered by their presence, there’s no need to fret. Here at our Kent Skin Clinic, we offer a safe and effective treatment to help you reduce their appearance, in the form of anti-wrinkle injections.

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections, more commonly called Botox, contain a small amount of high-quality toxins, which work to relax the muscles, causing wrinkles and make them appear less visible. At our aesthetics clinic in Kent, we safely administer these skin injections to help our clients achieve a softer and smoother appearance and give them a confidence boost.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Most clients will notice reduced fine lines and wrinkles within a few days of their anti-wrinkle treatment. However, it can take approximately 10-14 days for the full results to appear. At Becky Laroc Beauty & Aesthetics, we require all clients to attend a 2-week follow-up appointment so we can check on the effects of their anti-wrinkle treatment and ensure everything is working as it should. Where only necessary, we may administer a small top-up to the treatment area.

Anti-wrinkle injections last 3-6 months, depending on the treatment area.

At what age can you have anti-wrinkle injections?

If you are under 18, you won’t need anti-wrinkle injections, and we won’t give them to you! Anti-wrinkle injections are intended for clients experiencing visible signs of ageing who feel they want to make a few minor tweaks to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle injections: Treatment Areas

At our Kent Skin Clinic, we offer this anti-ageing treatment for the following areas:

Crows Feet

Crows feet are the tiny lines that form on the skin in the corners of your eyes when you smile or squint – an imprint of a lifetime of expression! But, if they bother you, anti-wrinkle injections can slightly relax the muscles around the eyes, making the lines less noticeable and helping you achieve a more youthful look.

Forehead and Frown Lines

Forehead lines are the horizontal lines that appear on your forehead when you raise your eyebrows, often when surprised or deep in concentration. Frown lines, on the other hand, are the vertical lines that form between your eyebrows when you furrow your brow or express worry. Anti-wrinkle injections can treat these lines by relaxing the muscles responsible for their formation. However, it’s crucial to treat both areas simultaneously to maintain a balanced appearance. Treating only one area can lead to uneven muscle action, potentially resulting in an unwanted dropping brow.

Bunny lines

Bunny lines appear around the sides of the nose when you scrunch it. Like all facial lines and wrinkles, they’re perfectly natural and a result of repeat expressions. If your lines have deepened with age, and you would like to make them less pronounced, our anti-wrinkle injections for bunny lines will relax the underlying muscles, helping you to achieve a more refined and youthful look.

Gummy smile

Gummy smiles (also known as excessive gingival display) are often a dental concern relating to enlarged gums. However, sometimes gummy smiles are caused by a hyperactive top lip. In this case – anti-wrinkle injections for gummy smiles may be a suitable treatment, helping to relax the muscles that lift the upper lip and allow for a more balanced and confidence-boosting smile.

Platysma Bands

Platysma bands are visible vertical necklines that can develop with age. Our anti-wrinkle injections in Bromley softens the bands by relaxing the underlying neck muscles. This treatment helps to create a smoother neck contour, helping our clients achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for invasive procedures.

Along with helping clients reduce fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance, these skin injections can also alleviate symptoms of conditions like Bruxism and Hyperhidrosis.


The masseter is one of the jaw muscles responsible for chewing and clenching. Unfortunately, if it becomes overactive, it can lead to teeth grinding, jaw clenching and related discomfort. Our anti-wrinkle injections in Kent can help alleviate this by relaxing the masseter muscle, reducing its strength and preventing teeth grinding. It’s a simple yet effective treatment to relieve discomfort from Bruxism.


This condition is characterised by excessive sweating, often affecting the hands and underarms, causing discomfort and embarrassment. Our Kent anti-wrinkle injections can effectively prevent excess sweating in these areas by blocking the signals from the nerves that trigger sweat. This Hyperhidrosis treatment provides long-lasting relief, allowing individuals to regain their confidence and experience greater comfort.

What to expect during anti-wrinkle treatment?

First and foremost, it’s vital to choose an experienced aesthetics practitioner to administer your anti-wrinkle injections. Here at Becky Laroc Beauty & Aesthetics, we require clients to undergo a medical consultation before their appointment to check everything is okay with our Doctor. Once the Doctor has approved the treatment, we will conduct a full consultation to explain the anti-wrinkle treatment, what’s involved, any side effects and expected results.

Providing you are happy to proceed with the treatment; we will clean the treatment area and mark it up with a white pencil. We will then administer several small injections using an insulin-type needle. Some mild discomfort may occur during treatment application. However, if you are worried about this, we will apply a numbing cream pre-treatment.
