Muscle Relaxing Injections (Botox®)
Achieve a smooth, rejuvenated appearance with little or no downtime.
The most common concern for those visiting our clinic is folds, lines and wrinkles, in particular, moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes, the horizontal forehead lines and crows feet.
A combination of factors causes lines and wrinkles. Firstly cellular changes occur over time with a reduction of collagen, and damage caused by free radicals in the sun, smoking and the polluted environment. Secondly, by using our facial muscles to laugh, talk, frown or concentrate, the muscles between the brows can contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Also when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract creating crow’s feet.
Ideally, our clients want to look like better versions of themselves, retaining the ability to show expression, but with less noticeable lines and crow’s feet. The best way to achieve this is for a licensed, trained expert in facial anatomy to deliver injections into the facial muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity, resulting in a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Botulinum toxin injections (widely known as Botox®, although other trade names are available) not only improve the look of lines and wrinkles, but they can also be used to enhance the appearance of the chin, nose, neck and jawline and can help with several medical conditions such as excessive sweating.
Botulinum toxin softens lines, giving a more relaxed, refreshed appearance.
The first step is to have a consultation with our doctor to discuss your treatment goals and analyse your skin to determine the appropriate treatment areas. We can numb the area before treatment if you are concerned about discomfort, although many of our clients don’t feel that this is necessary. The injections are administered in a quick, simple and painless process lasting less than 10 minutes. There is minimal downtime or recovery with Botulinum toxin, and you should be able to go about your daily routine straight after the procedure.
Real, noticeable results can be seen within 4 days, with optimal results evident in 2 weeks. The results of muscle relaxing injections can last for up to 3 months, however the cosmetic result can last for much longer.
