Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to eliminate the appearance of lines and wrinkles on various parts of the face.
This treatment is made up of a formula containing Botulinum Toxin Type A, which is effective on reducing the type of wrinkles that are caused by the repeated movements of the facial muscles. These facial movements cause grooves under the skin, which are visible when the face is moving.
Over time the grooves can become a noticeable and permanent feature for a look that can give a perception of age. The Botulinum Toxin (also known as BOTOX) in the anti-wrinkle injections works to temporarily pause the contractions of the muscles which in turn, stops the formation of the grooves under the skin. Therefore, the appearance of a wrinkle is erased.
Wrinkles in the skin are a common part of the physical ageing process and various areas of the face develop some degree of this concern. Facial movements can lead to creases appearing on the forehead, around the eyes and from the nose to the mouth as we continually, talk, laugh, eat, drink and express emotions.
The rise of the aesthetics world is empowering many people, both men and women, to challenge the effects of their personal ageing process. Anti-ageing treatments, such as anti-wrinkle injections are enabling people to hold on to their youthful looks and feel confident with the maintenance of a rejuvenated appearance.
Dr. Shaan assesses the concerns of each patient, constructing a personalised plan that produces bespoke outcomes for that patient alone. Each area of the face where certain wrinkles are formed is controlled by a different set of muscles.
Dr. Shaan’s experience enables him to apply the right dose to the right muscle in order for the appropriate wrinkle to disappear. The end result produces a smoother, brighter appearance to the face, for a more youthful look and radiant look.Book a Consultation

What our patients say...
My experience at Aatma Aesthetics from beginning to end was by far over 5 stars.
Shaan developed a personalised medical grade skincare routine for me to deal with my recently developed acne. It’s only been 3 days and I’ve already noticed a big difference using ZO products. I highly recommend Aatma Aesthetics for a seamless, professional and bespoke experience.
Dr. Shaan Patel is a perfectionist. I had 4mls of filler to give me back my cheeks and to remove my Nasolabial folds. I also had the 2 treatments of Profhilo. Was very impressed with my cheeks and removal of nasalabial folds.
If I could give another star I would!
If you are looking for a professional service and to have peace of mind when you do your treatment this is definitely the place. Dr. Shaan was super attentive and explained everything in detail. We will definitely be coming back and I already recommended to some family and friends!!
Always happy to be attended by Dr, Shaan. Extremely professional, charismatic, attentive to details, and very efficient. You know you can trust him!
Dr Shaan didn’t rush and not only took his time to explain what and how certain results could be achieved but also strived to delivered a lip’s shape that it was just perfect. He is highly skilled and even treated an area on my lips that I wasn’t even aware it could be performed and it completely changed the general look of my lips.
Dr. Shaan at Aatma Aesthetics did a great job of my Profhilo. It’s important to get the Profhilo into the right depth in the skin or it’s just wasted. I can see the results already and my fine lines are reduced. Good to find a great Dr. who knows what he’s doing.
