As part of the ageing process we unfortunately get fine lines and wrinkles. By using Botox® in minute amounts we can temporarily weaken the muscles that create the frown lines. This results in a smoother younger looking appearance.
It is the most popular cosmetic treatment as it has great efficacy with minimal risk.
We offer a variety of treatments for fine lines and wrinkles including Brotox, Mini-botox, fillers and chemical peels.
Reducing the muscle activity involves injecting relaxing agents into the muscle (Botox®). This involves a few tiny injections into the forehead, brow or around the crows feet. The treatment takes about 10 minutes. You can usually return to work.
The most common areas are:
Other areas we treat are neck lines (platysmal bands), chin dimples, square jaw reduction (masseter muscle), bunny lines (nose wrinkles), chemical brow lift.
Anyone who has fine lines and would like a slightly fresher look. Don’t expect facelift type results. During your consultation you will be provided with various options and the pros and cons thereof.

Answer: Non-invasive treatments are generally temporary. The effect can last 3-4 months in cases of Botox® for the face.
Answer: Botox® has been used for over 25years. It is used more in the medical field than in the cosmetic field such as cerebral palsy, vocal chord disorders, incontinence etc. Cosmetics is a small field in which it is used. Over 1million Botox® treatments are performed a year. That figure should be assuring.
Answer: With all medical treatments there are risks involved. These will be discussed during your consultation. Common side effects are minute areas of redness for 30min-1hr. Very rarely one can get temporary drooping of the eyelid. This can be improved with some eye drops.
