Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Botulinum Toxin A, commonly referred to as Botox®, serves as a highly effective solution for anti-wrinkle treatment. Derived from a neurotoxin, Botox® operates by transiently obstructing the transmission of nerve impulses to the targeted muscles. This temporary blockage inhibits muscular contractions, which in turn smoothens and relaxes the skin surface.

With its specialised action, Botox® significantly mitigates the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines, promoting a revitalised and youthful appearance. The utilisation of Botox® in anti-wrinkle treatment offers a non-invasive, scientifically backed approach to enhance aesthetic appeal, ensuring you look as vibrant as you feel.

How is the Botox® procedure performed?

The Botox® procedure involves the careful injection of minute amounts of the substance directly into specific facial muscles. This is accomplished with an ultra-fine needle, reducing any potential discomfort. As a result, the prominence of lines and wrinkles decreases, resulting in a smoother appearance of the skin.

This treatment does not cause long-term damage to the facial muscles, as its effects are only temporary. Within a 3 to 6-month period, your body naturally processes and eliminates the neurotoxin, gradually restoring your muscle contractions.

Does the treatment cause any pain?

The application of Botox® injections is typically pain-free, with most clients reporting a negligible level of discomfort. Post-treatment, there may be slight swelling or soreness, but these symptoms are minor and dissipate rapidly.

When will I see the results?

Visible results from Botox® injections typically emerge around the 3rd to 4th day after treatment. The ultimate outcome is generally observable 2 weeks post-injection. At this point, a follow-up session may be needed to enhance the initial results. This supplementary top-up is included in the initial cost of treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Some clients may experience minor redness and slight bumps at the injection sites. However, these side effects are typically mild and should resolve within approximately 30 minutes after the procedure.

What areas can Botox® be used to treat?

Botox® is a versatile treatment that can address a variety of aesthetic concerns across different areas of the face and body. Some of the most common areas treated with Botox® include:

  • Forehead Lines: Horizontal lines on the forehead caused by expressive facial movements can be softened with Botox®.
  • Frown Lines: Often called 'eleven lines', these are the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows. Botox® can help to smooth these out.
  • Crow's Feet: These are the fine lines and wrinkles that radiate from the corners of the eyes. Botox® can significantly reduce their appearance.
  • Bunny Lines: These are the wrinkles on the sides of the nose that can be smoothed with Botox®.
  • Lip Lines: Vertical lines, often called 'smoker’s lines', around the mouth and upper lip can also be treated.
  • Chin Dimpling: Botox® can be used to relax and smooth out a 'pebbly' or dimpled chin.
  • Neck Bands: Botox® can also treat visible vertical bands on the neck, providing a more youthful appearance.
  • Bruxism/TMJ: Botox® can be administered into the large chewing muscle to relieve symptoms like headaches, jaw soreness, and pain from bruxism or TMJ disorder. It may also result in a tapered jawline.
  • Migraine: Botox® can be injected in areas related to headache and migraine pain. It blocks the release of pain-transmitting chemicals, requiring regular treatments for full benefits.
  • Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating): Botox® can be injected under the arms to combat excess sweating, inhibiting the hyperfunction of sweat glands.
  • Gummy Smile: Botox® can treat a gummy smile, where a large part of the upper gum shows when smiling. It relaxes the upper lip muscles to limit their elevation during smiling, thus covering the gums.
