Wrinkle relaxing injections, often known as Botox™, contain a naturally occurring protein called botulinum toxin which reduces muscle contraction and are a safe and effective treatment to reduce expressive facial lines. There is no downtime, the treatment takes around 2 weeks to become fully effective and results last around 3 to 5 months.
What are wrinkle relaxing injections used to treat?
The three most popular areas that can be treated with wrinkle relaxing injections are the number 11 lines that appear between the eyes when frowning (frown area), the horizontal lines that appear when raising your forehead (forehead area) and the lines around the eyes when smiling (crow’s feet).
Other specialist areas that can be treated include lines on the nose (bunny lines), upper lip lines, a gummy smile, a sad downturned mouth and dimpling of the chin. Botox can also be used to treat the chewing muscle (masseter) and neck muscle to create a more defined jawline (the Nefertiti lift) as well as excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis) and migraine.
I am interested in wrinkle relaxing injections, but I want a natural-looking result as I do not like the “frozen look”. Is this possible?
Yes…absolutely! The dose of the injections can be tailored to your requirements to reduce the wrinkles but also still allow some natural movement. In fact most of my clients prefer the natural look.
Do you offer a complimentary consultation?
Yes. Your face is unique so I always offer a complimentary consultation where there will be plenty of time for a full facial assessment and to answer any questions that you may have. Appointments can be booked online.
