Before & After Images

Deep wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines are caused by overactive muscle movement, which gradually wear away the collagen in the skin, causing the skin to sink and wrinkles to appear.

Every time we laugh, smile or frown, dynamic wrinkles are created by the contractions in our delicate facial muscles. Over time, these 'contractions' leave us with what we know as frown lines, crow's feet and laughter lines.

A muscle relaxant is injected into the wrinkles, which temporarily relaxes the nerves by blocking impulses from the nerves to our facial muscles, so that they don’t contract. While the untreated muscles react in a normal way allowing facial expressions to be unaffected, the skin itself remains smooth and unwrinkled. The improvement can be surprisingly dramatic.

This treatment is administered through a tiny micro-needle so fine that there is very minimal discomfort. Treatment may be carried out immediately since no 'test patch' is required, and normal activities can be resumed immediately.

This procedure has been used on over a million patients worldwide for more that 19 years. The effects of this treatment may take up to two weeks following treatment. The duration of effect varies, but has been known to last for 4 months; however this depends on the severity of the condition being treated.

Your individual needs will be discussed and explained.

When can treatment commence?
Providing that you are a suitable candidate for this procedure, and after a full consultation with Nurse Graham and one of our doctors treatment can commence immediately.

What areas can be treated?
Frown lines, crows feet, laughter lines , forehead creases and neck lines. The lips and the tip of the nose can also be slightly lifted.

Do the injections hurt?
Any discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most people compare the sensation to a pin prick. Prior to injecting, one of our doctors may choose to numb the area to be treated with an anaesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. (This may vary depending on the areas to be treated).

How will my skin look and feel after the treatment?
The area that has been treated may appear slightly pink, but this will disappear shortly after treatment. In some cases small bruises may occur at the injection site, but these can be covered up with make-up.

Many people return to work or resume normal activity following their treatment. Within days you will see a marked improvement in moderate to severe frown lines and other lines that have been treated. In clinical tests nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement of their appearance as moderate to better one month after treatment.

Does the correction last forever?
Results vary from patient to patient but may last up to 4 months. There is however evidence to suggest that the muscles eventually retrain themselves so that less frequent treatments may be necessary over time. Nurse Graham will advise you on realistic expectations for you as an individual patient.

Without top up injections how will my skin look?
Should you discontinue the treatment, the frown lines between your brows and other areas that have been treated will return to how they looked before treatment.

What are the side effects?
Some side effects include minimal bruising, and temporary heaviness of the forehead.

BOTOX- relaxes frown lines, crows feet, transverse forehead lines, helps soften indented chins and lifts eyebrows.
