This is the most popular treatment around the world for treating lines and wrinkles due to its excellent results and well established safety profile.
Botulinum Toxin wrinkle relaxing treatments (Botox®) work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles, resulting in a dramatically smoother and younger-looking appearance.
Most clients request treatment in the upper facial areas:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Laughter lines around the eyes
- Forehead lines
The treatment works by placing micro-injections just under the skin where the wrinkles are most troublesome. The procedure is virtually painless and will not cause any significant distress or down time.
The initial effects of the treatment start to be felt usually within 48 - 72 hours, but can take up to 14 days to see the full effect. You will be required to attend a follow up appointment 2 - 3 weeks after the initial treatment, if you would like your treatment to be reviewed.
The effect of the treatment usually lasts between 3 - 6 months and will vary from person to person. Fine lines can disappear, deep lines will be softened and may take several treatments until optimum results can be seen. You should have further treatment at no less then 12 week intervals and should wait until the muscle activity returns but not before the lines and wrinkles have had the chance to re-establish.
