Project Description


Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections have been used in the health industry in Ireland since the 1980s to treat muscle problems. These days Anti-Wrinkle Injections are Ireland’s most popular cosmetic injections for the removal of wrinkles. Due to the very low concentration used it is a very safe cosmetic treatment.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections consist of a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out wrinkles. It is injected into the muscles of the face and works by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles, and as a result, softening the appearance of the line or wrinkle. These injections are most commonly used in the forehead and corners of the eyes (crow’s feet).

Effectiveness of Anti-Wrinkle Injections.

You can expect the results to last between two and six months depending on your body’s metabolic system and the product that is used. It normally only takes a few minutes to administer the anti-wrinkle injections and, as the needles used are very fine, it is not usually painful. Anti-Wrinkle injections are equally effective for men and women.

Anti-Wrinkle Injectables for Men

Anti-Wrinkle treatments are not just for women. Men from every background complain of being ‘tired of looking old and tired. More men are becoming concerned about how they look whilst aging. Some want to slow down the process completely, and keep that strength in their jawline or around their eyes.

Because these injections are effective for stress (frown) lines, it is a popular treatment with many businessmen who want to look more refreshed and approachable.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections are significantly different from the injections used on women. A man’s basic facial anatomy is very different from a woman’s, and men have specific muscle mass and muscle fiber patterns.

During your first consultation with Dr. Natalia Bratu, she will advise you on the results she would expect to see for you.

Who Will Be Looking After Me?

Dr. Natalia Bratu will be taking care of you. This treatment only takes about 15 minutes and any noticeable marks usually dissipate in minutes so nobody will be any the wiser that you have had the procedure.

Am I Suitable for Treatment?

A small number of people are not suitable for treatment. This can be down to pre-existing medical conditions, your lifestyle, and your current physical condition.

At your consultation, Dr. Natalia may deem you unsuitable for treatment. In Refine Clinic we do not pressure our clients to go ahead with any treatment until they are ready so there is no problem if you decide to come back another day and take time to consider your treatment options.

I have never had this treatment before and I am apprehensive.

That is no problem at all. Dr Natalia will take her time with you. She will go through the treatment and do her absolute best to reassure you. If at any point you decide not to have treatment that is also no problem.

Before your treatment, a cool gel pack can be held to the skin to numb the area. Numbing cream is available also but is rarely used as the injections are so quick, like a little pinch. Some patients who bruise easily may find that they may have a slight small bruise e.g. near the sensitive eye area, post-treatment.

Arnica cream is a fantastic healer for bruises and speeds up the recovery time for any bruising.

Some people may have a fear of needles but still would like treatment. If you make us aware of this we can be mindful of this and look after you.


A contraindication is a specific situation in which a drug, procedure, or surgery should not be used because it may be harmful to the person.
