epiclinic® offer a variety of anti-wrinkle treatments including tiny injections, laser treatment and high-tech devices like Fraxel and Exilis. We can rebuild lost collagen, lift, restore and redefine lost volume in the mid-face and around the mouth, reduce downturned corners of the mouth and even just treat deep set wrinkles in the forehead. You will be diagnosed and your results will be monitored using 3D imaging technology. This technology is a cornerstone of most of our treatments as it provides a way for our doctor Dr Michael Molton to define issues and measure the outcomes of your treatment.
Your treatment journey will depend on the issues we discover during this 3D analysis process (see right).
If we find a lack of collagen we may recommend a laser procedure or if you have healthy skin but are showing signs of wrinkle development then we may recommend muscle relaxants (anti-wrinkle injections).

When it comes to physical changes of the body and the ageing process it’s a case of when and not if. Wrinkles and facial lines are inevitable however that does not mean they are untreatable and unpreventable! At epiclinic® we have a range of anti-wrinkle treatments that can help disguise the appearance of ageing and prevent the signs of ageing.
We offer a range of anti-wrinkle injections (muscle relaxants) as well as dermal fillers.
The best treatment for your wrinkles and facial lines depends on whether they are what we call ‘dynamic’ lines or ‘static’ lines. Dynamic lines are those that appear and disappear with the change of facial expressions whereas static lines are there regardless of your expression.
Dynamic lines can often be reduced by limiting the movement of the muscle that creates the line or wrinkle. This is done with a special prescription-only medication and effects last about four months. If you are looking for dynamic line treatment it is very important that you tell the health practitioner if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or if you have a nerve disease prior to treatment.
The treatment for dynamic lines is done with a tiny needle which sometimes has several pin-prick feelings. The treatment only takes a few seconds so the procedure is easily tolerable for most people. On some occasions, patients may have a small pin-prick bruise that is coverable with makeup and may last a few days.
With dynamic line treatment, it is important to remember that the treatment is designed to reduce movement of the muscle which may take a few days to take effect.
