Wrinkle relaxing injections

 

We offer Wrinkle Relaxing Injections which use tiny injections of Botulinum Toxin to relax the muscles and soften the lines in your forehead and around your eyes. 

Possible treatment areas: 

  • Glabellar (frown) lines

  • Forehead lines 

  • Crows feet 

 

When does it start working and how long does it last? 

 

The treatment takes about 2 weeks to reach full effect and wears off again after about 3 months depending on your response to the treatment although treatments can last longer. Botulinum toxin is not immediately reversible but will gradually wear off. Most people need a treatment every 4 months or so to get the best long term results.

Who is not suitable for botulinum toxin treatment?

  • If you are allergic to any of the ingredients

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women

  • Some medications make people unsuitable for treatment – your medical history will be checked prior to treatment to ensure you are suitable and safe to treat.

Aftercare

 

After treatment, there may be a small amount of swelling, redness or bruising but this tends to settle quickly. Some patients report having headaches after treatment but this should subside in 24 hours.

  • Remain upright for 2 hours

  • Use the muscles that have been treated more often for the first hour

  • Do not consume alcohol for 48 hours 

  • Do not apply make up for approximately 6 hours

  • Avoid facial massages for the next 2 weeks 

  • When cleansing avoid pressure and do gentle strokes away from the eyes 

  • Avoid wearing tight caps or garments in the areas injected 

  • Avoid exposure to UV and extreme heat i.e. sauna, sunbeds or very hot showers
