Botulinum Toxin A is our most popular treatment to soften lines and wrinkles. It is the most requested cosmetic procedure in the world today. It’s most commonly used to treat in-between the eyebrows, ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes and forehead lines.
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines and wrinkles. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry, worried or unhappy even when you’re not.
Botulinum Toxin A works by relaxing the muscles that create lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.
Most of our clients prefer Botulinum Toxin A injections in small dosages and more frequently. This approach requires more skill on the part of the practitioner and delivers a softened, fresh, beautiful, natural look.
The result after treatment lasts 4-6 months on average. If you opt for a smaller dose, you may have to get injections again in less than 4 months if you want to maintain your new look.
Many people find after several treatments that they don’t need another one for longer because they “unlearned” the habit of the frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines.
We offer a free follow up two weeks after every Botulinum Toxin treatment to ensure that the treatment meets your expectations. If necessary, a free ‘top up’ can be given at this appointment.
The treatment itself takes around 15 minutes to complete and after the treatment, you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. There is no downtime. Although some minor redness, swelling or rarely bruising may occur at the injection site that can be covered up with makeup.
Areas of treatment:
Forehead, Frown lines, Crows Feet, Bunny lines (on the nose), Mouth Frown ( lift corners of the lips), Lips ( flip up effect), Dimpled chin, Platismal bands on the neck.
Botulinum Toxin A injections can be done concurrently with facial fillers to contour your face and create a liquid facelift.
