Cosmetically we use Botox® treatments to relax the muscles in the face that create fine lines and wrinkles and to prevent further deepening of lines.
It is a simple 10-minute procedure, with a few tiny injections directly into the muscles we want to treat. There is an art to Botox treatments – to achieve the best, most natural looking results it must be placed in the right muscle, in the correct place, at an ideal dose, by an experienced doctor. The most common areas we treat are the frown line, or ‘grumpy lines’, the horizontal ‘worry’ lines and the ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes.
Before & After Gallery
How does Botox work?
Botox is one of several ‘wrinkles relaxers’ which all work by relaxing the muscles that create the lines of facial expression. These products reduce the messages sent from nerve ending to muscle by reducing a specific message called Acetylcholine, which is the major message from nerve ending to muscle and sweat glands. We believe there is an art to Botox and the wrinkle relaxing treatments. You laugh, you frown, you concentrate and when you do, these facial expressions break down the supporting structures in your facial muscles. The medicine needs to be placed in the right muscle, in the best dose, in the correct place. Our aim is to turn the muscle activity down, but not off, so you still have some facial expression. We use lower doses more regularly, which is why we are renowned for our beautiful, natural looking results.
Is Botox for lines and wrinkles safe?
Yes, we use genuine Botox, which has been safely used for over 20 years in a range of medical and cosmetic applications.
When will I see results with Botox for lines and wrinkles?
You will see results of your Botox treatment in 1-2 weeks. The Botox will gradually soften lines over this period by relaxing the muscles.
How long will Botox for lines and wrinkles last?
We aim to create a ‘natural look’ with lower doses more frequently to avoid a frozen face, and we generally recommend repeat treatments every 3-4 months to achieve the best results.
What can you use with Botox to make results better?
Dermal fillers: to fill deeper lines, wrinkles and facial contouring, volume restoration and facial enhancement. Botox helps the filler last longer
Dermal Needling: to improve the texture of the skin
Where else can I get wrinkle relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers have been used for several years with an almost 100% success rate for treating excessive armpit sweating. Wrinkle relaxers can be used cosmetically for gummy smiles, forehead lines, frown lines and more advanced techniques such as lifting the brow and mouth corners by ‘rebalancing’ facial muscles, or slimming the jawline by relaxing masseter muscles.
