Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

Expression lines such as crow’s feet and lines on your forehead and between the your eyebrows are caused by muscle contraction every time you smile or frown. The more expressive you are the deeper these wrinkles are likely to be.
Treatment of these lines involves the use of a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinium bacterium (BOTOX). A tiny amount of the bacterium is injected into the muscles, temporarily reducing the contractions that cause the persistent frown lines, so that when you frown or smile your face will stay free of wrinkles.
Your appointment will take up to 30 minutes and there is minimal discomfort as very fine needles are used. No recovery time is needed and you will normally see results in less than 2 weeks.
The treatment is most commonly used for crows feet, frown lines between your eyebrows and the lines on the forehead. It can also be used to reduce the fine vertical lines on your upper lip.
The skin around the area will look smoother and less wrinkled and many patients also say they feel more relaxed as frowning reduces. Recent research has also shown a reduction in headaches for some patients.
As this is not a permanent treatment it is usual to repeat the procedure every 4 to 5 months and build upon the original results.
Botox is the best known and most popular treatment for lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, laughing and frowning.
