Anti-wrinkle treatment works by relaxing the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles and is the most performed non-surgical procedure in the world. The treatment is an easy, relatively pain-free process and a great solution for reducing the appearance of wrinkles around the face, and can be used to help smooth forehead and frown lines, crow’s feet, and skin bands on the neck.
Anti-wrinkle treatment has been used in hospitals since the 1970s and within the cosmetic industry for over 20 years. It can be a great non-surgical alternative to a facelift and is specifically designed to help smooth out the common signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles for a more refined, youthful appearance.
At Enhanced Aesthetics, we use a natural, purified protein used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is an established brand name and can be used to treat conditions such as wrinkles around the eyes, forehead lines and frown lines.
At Enhanced, we use the original products with a large emphasis on safety. Anti-wrinkle treatment is the result of years of research and studies, and has been used extensively in medicine. This medicine was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989, with the first approved form of wrinkle injection in the world to target wrinkles and fine lines.
Anti-wrinkle treatment works by blocking the signal between nerves and muscles, temporarily relaxing facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. This helps to smooth out lines and tighten your skin for an overall rejuvenated appearance.
Areas of treatment

Anti-wrinkle treatments are non-invasive procedures designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, providing a smoother and more youthful complexion. The procedure is quick, with minimal discomfort and downtime. Smooth frown and forehead lines, laughter lines, crow's feet, and creases in the neck, as well as wrinkles around the jaw.
Enhanced Aesthetics offers treatments for one area or more depending on your needs. Price for treatment is provided after we have assessed your individual needs and based on the type and amount of treatment you personally require.
Some clients may need additional products; your individual requirements will be discussed at the time of your consultation.
SAFE & EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS
Originally used to treat muscular conditions, and now among the most well-known cosmetic treatments, Anti-wrinkle treatment is a natural, highly purified protein. Anti-wrinkle treatment medicine contains a neurotoxin. Present in extremely small doses, this toxin inhibits the nerve stimulation of muscles by preventing nerves from releasing a chemical cell acetylcholine.
As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and the contractions of our facial muscles create creases and lines, leaving our appearance with expression contours and wrinkles. In its cosmetic use, anti-wrinkle treatment has the beneficial effect of relaxing facial muscles, improving the appearance of fine lines, and preventing the development of wrinkles.
Due to the way it is administered, Anti-wrinkle treatment is an incredibly precise treatment, allowing for highly targeted areas to be treated. All treatments are tailored to the individual, and personal results may vary.
With our anti-wrinkle treatments, you have the option of a numbing cream making the treatment process pain-free from start to finish.
Dr. Tong will assess your medical history to ensure the most appropriate treatment is used to personalise the results according to your individual needs and goals. When having any treatment done at our clinic, you should feel certain that your safety and comfort are our main priority.
At Enhanced, we are focused on providing the most natural-looking results to enhance your appearance. We remain up to date with the latest industry advancements and technologies guaranteeing our patients receive the best possible care in a safe and sterile environment.
EXPERT PRACTITIONER: Dr. Tong
It's important to note that all of our treatments are only administered by a qualified and experienced medical professional, and the treatment will be tailored to individual needs and desired outcomes.
Medical Director, Dr. Tong leads the Enhanced clinic with over 15 years of medical experience, and is at the forefront of cosmetic treatments, with expert knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy. His expert eye and attention to detail allow him to achieve the very best natural-looking results.
The procedure itself should be virtually pain-free and choosing a highly qualified and experienced practitioner is an important factor in this process.
THE TREATMENT PROCESS
It is important to remember that each client and treatment is unique. Your exact requirements and results will be discussed in detail with Dr. Tong.
Step One: No Obligation Complimentary Consultation
Your first step is a free consultation with Dr. Tong who will answer any concerns you have and discuss your treatment goals. After taking your medical history, a discussion about any concerns, and an assessment of the client's facial anatomy, Dr. Tong will suggest what type of procedure is most suitable for you. During this consultation, Dr. Tong will talk to you about your desired outcomes and set realistic exceptions for the results of the treatment. You’ll leave understanding the procedure and what to expect from the results.
Step Two: Treatment
During your appointment, your facial muscles will be examined, so that it can be determined where to apply the treatment. Tiny anti-wrinkle injections will be administered precisely into the targeted muscles that cause wrinkles and lines. This is a quick, pain-free process lasting no longer than half an hour.
The treatment involves minimal downtime and you can usually resume normal activities straight after treatment. It may take a few days to start seeing the effects of Botox, and the full results typically develop over the course of 7-14 days.
Step Three: Results, Review, and Complimentary Adjustment Appointment
Two weeks after your initial appointment, you are invited back to the clinic to review your procedure. It takes up to 14 days for treatment to take full effect, and to ensure you are completely happy with your results. If you require a top-up to your treatment during this appointment, Dr. Tong will provide this free of charge.
Step Four: Next Appointment
Before leaving the clinic, our team will arrange your next appointment in around 4 months.
POST TREATMENT ADVICE & RECOVERY TIME
The results from most Anti-wrinkle treatments can be seen within 3-5 days but will reach their maximum at around 10-14 days.
Please note that recovery from any treatment is unique to each patient and is something that will be discussed in detail with Dr Tong. A leaflet will be provided giving information about post-treatment advice.
Results should last between three and six months, and this is dependent on muscle strength, metabolism, and lifestyle. To keep results looking optimum, avoid smoking, excess alcohol, and sun exposure as these are all factors that contribute to helping collagen break down faster, decreasing the longevity of the treatment.
To ensure the best results we like to review our patients after two weeks. We are contactable should you have any concerns during this two-week period. For safety reasons, additional dosing cannot be administered during a four-week period following treatment.
3-4 Hours After Treatment:
Try to contract the treated areas for up to four hours after treatment by frowning and lifting your eyebrows to allow the anti-wrinkle treatment to reach all of the treated muscle
Stay upright for 3-4 hours following treatment
Up to 24 Hours:
Avoid using makeup
Up to 48 Hours:
Avoid vigorous exercise and alcohol-based products on the area treated for 48 hours
Avoid rubbing or touching the area and avoid having facials or massages for 48 hours. This is to ensure that the treatment remains at the site of injection
Up to 3 Days:
Avoid exposure to excessive heat such as saunas or steam rooms for 3 days
Do not massage or have facials for the duration that your treatment is taking effect
Headaches can be common. If this occurs, take an over-the-counter analgesic and do not hesitate to contact the clinic if you have any concerns with ongoing side effects.
Q.Will my face look unnatural or overdone?
A. Both Anti-wrinkle and Dermal filler procedures are a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust Dr Tong to deliver subtle results, as you are being treated by someone who is licensed, trained and a medical expert in facial anatomy.
Enhanced prides itself on achieving the natural look, resulting in a subtle, enhanced and more youthful appearance. Dr Tong is known for avoiding the fake, overdone look. We believe that less is more.
Q. Do the injections hurt?
A. The procedure is done using a very fine needle, so it feels more like acupuncture, and most clients do not need numbing cream. If, however, you are needle-phobic or have any anxiety around pain, then numbing cream can be applied. Dr Tong will discuss these options with you during your consultation.
Q. When will I see results?
A. You will not see a change straight away. It takes about 2 or 3 days to start working, and 1 to 2 weeks to see the full effect
Q. How long will the results last?
A.In general, anti-wrinkle treatment lasts 3-4 months. There will certainly be patients in which in lasts longer, in that 4-6 month range, or shorter, in that 2-month range. It is also common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment.
