BotoxBotulinum toxin is fast becoming the treatment of choice for the reduction, elimination and prevention of fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected directly into a muscle it blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine, the substance responsible for transmitting electrical impulses that elicit muscle contraction. Restricting the contraction of certain muscles gives improvement cosmetically on the surface of the skin where lines have accumulated.

Expected Results

Everyone is an individual, and as such the results will vary between individuals. Assessment and expected clinical outcomes will be fully delivered and explained in the consultation.

Fine lines can be expected to disappear after one treatment and botulinum toxin will also greatly minimise and prevent the formulation of new lines.

Moderate lines can be expected to appear a lot softer, smoother and in some cases disappear depending on the severity of them.

Severe lines and permanent muscle contraction can be expected to appear softer, lifted and release tension.

How long will results last?

Improvements in the lines and relaxing of the muscle will begin to be apparent after 3-10 days following treatment and results should be expected to last approximately 3-4 months.

For more long term results, including the permanent reversal of very deep furrows and to prevent any future development, 2-3 treatments per year is advised.

Top 4 FAQ’s for Anti Wrinkle Injections

How long will the effects last?

The effects of botulinum toxin will be experienced for up to four months in the facial muscles and 6-8 months in the underarm area.

Does it hurt?

Botulinum toxin is delivered via injection using very small fine needles. Topical anaesthesia can be used if requested.

When the treatment wears off will my lines look more severe than before?

No. Established lines will return as they were pre treatment or possibly improved due to the length of time the muscle has spent not contracting.

Will all my lines disappear?

This will depend on the amount and depth of lines in the area. Fine lines can be expected to disappear after one treatment. Moderate lines can be expected to appear a lot softer and smoother. Severe lines and permanent muscle contraction can be expected to appear softer.
