This treatment will help smooth away any wrinkles created by movement, especially on your forehead or around your eyes and in the corners of your mouth.
An anaesthetic is not essential as the procedure is quite painless, however, if you feel more comfortable having the area frozen then a topical anaesthetic can be applied. The botulinum toxin is then injected into the muscles in your face, where your lines appear. It is a very quick procedure and should take around 10 or 15 minutes.
The results last around 4-6 months. In order to maintain the effect, however, you will need to have regular injections, about every 4-6 months. If you choose not to have this treatment again, it will not have any adverse effects on your skin but you will just develop normal lines and wrinkles over time.
With this muscle relaxing treatment, there might be some swelling and bruising, but this will be temporary. We advise that you try not to touch the area that has been treated for at least a few hours so that the botulinum toxin doesn’t spread to other muscles.
We will carry out a full consultation with you prior to any procedure taking place. You must let us know during this meeting if you have had any condition affecting your muscles, or you have any allergies, or might be pregnant.
You can have anti-wrinkle injections in your forehead, between your eyes, lines next to your eyes, eyebrow lift, gummy smile, bunny lines, and marionette lines. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to slim the jawline, neck lift, platysma bands, and chin dimpling.
