Relaxing Injections (Botox)

"I love what you did last time, and it's lasted so well. I've been recommending you to everyone."
"Absolutely perfect. No crows feet, no wrinkles. Perfect!"
Ageing is accompanied by the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. These lines are the result of repeated crinkling of the skin that occurs when you smile or frown. Non-surgical cosmetic treatment with purified botulinum toxin (Botox ®) can smoothen wrinkles and lessen dynamic lines, giving the face a younger, fresher look. I use industry-leading products only that have been tried and tested for many years without any long-term problems. These products contain purified botulinum toxin A. Botulinum toxin A temporarily blocks the release of a chemical at the nerve endings of a muscle to stop it from contracting. The relaxation of this muscle lessens the tension of the face and ultimately reduces lines and wrinkles. If lines are present without movement, these are called static lines and these may improve slightly with botulinum toxin A, however they may also need additional treatment with a dermal filler.
Treatment of Lines and Wrinkles with toxins
Wrinkle relaxing injections can temporarily reduce or even eliminate frown, forehead and smile lines. Crow’s feet can also be treated. The process is quick and comfortable with results seen after a few days. The treatment can be repeated after 3-4 months although some patients may find it lasts longer.  Side-effects are rare and normal activities can be resumed straight away. Treatment with botulinum toxin be used in conjunction with a dermal filler to remove any remaining lines present during rest. As botulinum toxin is a prescription-only treatment, a consultation beforehand is essential to ascertain suitability.
