One of the most common inquiries we receive at Amara is about the effectiveness of anti-wrinkle treatments as a preventative measure. Many patients want to know when the right time to start getting treatments is and if this will help delay the formation of lines and wrinkles. This type of treatment is often referred to as ‘Baby Anti-wrinkle’.

Will anti-wrinkle injections prevent lines and wrinkles forming as we age?

Muscle relaxing injections will delay the formation of lines and wrinkles as you age. It is impossible to fully prevent lines and wrinkles from forming. Whether or not you should consider preventative treatment is a more complicated question.


Should I consider preventative anti-wrinkle injections?

If the formation of permanent lines and wrinkles is a concern for you, then yes.

Low dose anti-wrinkle treatments will reduce involuntary movement and over expression of your facial muscles. These movements cause creases in your skin over time.

Moreover, as we age, the components of the skin that give it volume, structure and elasticity deplete and are not replaced as efficiently as when you were younger.

The pairing of this movement of your facial muscles and the creasing of your skin, along with the depletion of some of your skin’s structural components is what causes permanent lines and wrinkles to form.


Lifestyle and wrinkles

preventative anti-wrinkle injectionsWe live in an age where many of us spend hours a day looking at a computer screen, smartphone or tablet. We don’t notice it, but when we do this we are squinting and moving our facial muscles, especially those around the eyes. Preventative doses of anti-wrinkle injections will reduce the impact these unconscious movements have on the formation of permanent furrows in the future.

Smoking and diet will also have an effect. Many people also completely underestimate or even dismiss the long term impact UVA and UVB rays have on their skin. Often ‘cloudy Ireland’ is used as an excuse not to wear a protective SPF. As our skin specialists will tell you, the number one weapon in the fight against wrinkles is a good SPF.


Should I have preventative treatment with anti-wrinkle injections?

We will advise you of all the options available to you. Adoption of a well thought out daily skin care regime can be very effective in the long run and a better plan for some people who are genetically blessed. Taking care of your skin with regular light resurfacing treatments like the Hydrafacial MD will also go a long way to preventing permanent line formation. It’s about finding a balance – this is The Amara Way.


When should I start thinking about anti-wrinkle treatment?

It’s different for everyone and for some people, there will be no need. This decision is hugely based on your genetics which you can’t control, and your lifestyle, which you can.

We see people in their late 20’s who spend 8 hours a day looking at a computer screen and have the early signs of permanent lines already. For these patients we would advise a more considered skin care regime first, and then preventative anti-wrinkle measures thereafter if they don’t notice a difference. We see other people in their early 30’s who have spent even longer periods of time in front of a screen. Depending on whether or not they have looked after their skin, and their genetics, they may benefit from starting preventative treatments. Preventative anti-wrinkle treatments are highly case dependent.



What’s involved in a skin consultation at Amara?

At a Skin Consultation in Amara, you can have an honest discussion with one of our Skin Health Specialists, especially if preventative treatment is something you are considering. They will run through your concerns and lifestyle and help you make a decision as to whether mini muscle relaxing treatments are for you. Often there are other options and pre-steps we would recommend, especially to our younger clients, before deciding on preventative anti-wrinkle injections.

If you have any unanswered questions about anti-wrinkle treatment you will find useful information on our FAQ Anti-wrinkle page.


At Amara we only use the highest quality products which is why we use Allergan's anti-wrinkle product and not a cheaper biosimilar (generic) product. It is FDA approved and the most studied of its kind which means we can stand by its clinical profile.

I’m with with Amara Clinic since 2010, and I’m so satisfied with their services and affordable procedures and products. Dr. Paul, Dr. Mylene and other doctors are very well experienced and efficient. Siobhan is lovely, she helped me with my skin when my hyperpigmentations flared up.A million thanks Amara Clinics, for making me youthful looking.❤️❤️❤️

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!
I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)
