BOTOX® treatment involves an anti-wrinkle injection, which blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, meaning that the muscle can no longer contract and cause a wrinkle in the skin. This treatment can prevent deep wrinkles forming and will minimise the severity of the crease as the muscle is unable to move.
How do BOTOX® injections work?
BOTOX® is injected directly into the neuromuscular tissue at problem areas such as crows feet and frown lines. This blocks signals from getting to the muscle, causing it to be paralysed. Once the muscle can no longer contract, the wrinkle can no longer form and the skin is left smooth.
Benefits of BOTOX®
BOTOX® treatment is an effective way to refresh the appearance and remove signs of ageing. By minimising wrinkles you will look more youthful, less tired and makeup will have a smoother and more flawless base for application. Regular BOTOX® treatments can also delay the onset of visible ageing, as the muscles are no longer allowing the wrinkles to form and so the skin remains smoother for longer.

What are the benefits of BOTOX® injections over surgical procedures such as a facelift?
BOTOX® is an affordable alternative to surgical anti-ageing procedures. As it is non-invasive there is no downtime. It is a great alternative for those who aren’t ready to commit to a more severe facelift treatment.
Is BOTOX® suitable for me?
Once you reach your mid-twenties, collagen production decreases by 1% every year, meaning that as we grow older our skin starts to sag and look less firm. Applying BOTOX® at an early age can help to slow signs of ageing and prevent the muscles from creasing the skin and causing wrinkles. It is also good for older patients who wish to minimise the appearance of wrinkles which have already formed.
When will I see results?
Results can be seen in 2-3 days after treatment.
Will the results last?
BOTOX® can last up to 4 months.
Are the BOTOX® injections painful?
A topical anaesthetic is applied before treatment, meaning that no pain is felt.
Are there any side effects?
As this treatment involves an injection, mild pain and bruising may be experienced at the injection site. This will subside within a few days.
