- Botox treats the muscle and NOT the skin, therefore any existing “lines at rest” will soften, but not go completely with this treatment alone.
When you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and the creases deepen into lines and become permanently etched on your face. These anti wrinkle injections can be injected into specific facial muscles so that the nerve impulses for contraction of these muscles are blocked.
In having this Botox / Wrinkle Injections treatment in the facial muscles is causes a temporary weakness or paralysis of that muscle resulting in the overlying skin becoming smooth and unwrinkled.

After your Treatment
There are no side effects after having the Wrinkle Injections so you can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work. However lying down and exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after the treatment and the area should not be touched in this time.
The wrinkle injection does take up to 2 weeks to work so we offer you the chance to come back between 14 and 21 days for a review if needed.
Botulinum Toxin is best at treating dynamic facial lines i.e. those caused by facial muscular activity. This treatment does not improve wrinkles due to aging and sun-damage which are unrelated to facial muscle activity. The effects of the injections will generally last around 3 – 4 months. Facial muscles that are larger (such as in men) or which are used by facially ‘expressive’ clients may require more frequent treatments.
Starting in our late twenties, facial lines and wrinkles begin to appear that affect not just your appearance, but also your self-esteem and even your choice of career. By smoothing out those lines Botox can help you restore a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. Many people can benefit from Botulinum Toxin – not just celebrities, and it can work as well for men as it does for women. In fact many men are already experiencing the benefits of a younger, more relaxed looking appearance that it can provide.
Anyone who is pregnant, breast feeding or suffering from severe neuromuscular disorders, Bell’s palsy or blood coagulation disorders, are not suitable for treatment.
Drug interactions can occur when Botulinum Toxin is used concomitantly with other medications. You must ensure that your doctor is aware of any medications you are taking, especially aminoglycoside antibiotics (gentamicin, neomycin), aspirin, anti-inflammatories, Gingko Biloba and St John’s Wort.
Botulinum Toxin has been used for over 20 years to treat facial wrinkles and its safety and efficacy has been shown in many clinical trials. In addition there have been no long term side effects reported from its’ use. However, whilst uncommon, temporary adverse effects may arise from the treatment. Occasionally a small bruise may occur at the injection site – this can be covered with make-up. In very rare circumstances patients may experience heaviness or descent of the eyebrow or eyelid which may last a few weeks. Prior to your treatment the doctor will assess your risk of this event and therefore adjust you treatment accordingly.
