About Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Injections of Botulinum Toxin type A (BTX-A) are a convenient way to gently relax your muscles and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, giving you a fresh and rejuvenated look without the need for surgery. As a result, the skin in this area is not creased repeatedly. This lack of contraction softens existing lines and wrinkles as well as preventing further lines and wrinkles from forming.

All clients will have a full clinical consultation with our medical practitioner prior to treatment, tailoring the treatment to their exact needs and discussing the full side effect profile

More Information

This section details some of our most frequency asked questions about the treatment. It also includes information about what you should some pre & post treatment advice. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Is Botulinum Toxin a preventative treatment?

Yes, Botulinum Toxin  can be used as a preventative treatment. Muscles shorten when they contract in the face. This causes the skin on top to crease. Over time, these creases begin to form fine lines and get deeper.

Botulinum Toxin administered twice-three times a year will prevent these muscles from contracting for the majority of the year, allowing the skin on top some respite and non-movement. This prevents the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

What areas can you treat with Botulinum Toxin?

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat the face, neck and décolletage and some areas of the body for example Forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, brow lift, masseter jaw slimming, turkey neck, bunny lines, chin dimpling, gummy smile, lines around the mouth (perioral rejuvenation), smokers lines, sweating.

How long does it last?

Most people notice a difference after three days with optimum results visible at two weeks. Results typically last for three to six months after treatment depending on area being treated. Regular treatments will help to maintain results.

Of course, each client is different and lifestyle factors can play a role in how the botulinum toxin is metabolised between different individuals.
