Anti-wrinkle treatment (Botox®) works by weakening the muscles to reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines and the face. In small doses, these injections are a very effective anti-ageing treatment.
We use anti-wrinkle injections to rejuvenate the skin and combat wrinkles, which strengthens the skin and smooths away lines and folds.
Frown lines can be seen as vertical lines in between the eyebrows and are common in people who frown a lot or have been overexposed to the sun. To treat these lines, small injections are given in-between and along the brow.
Forehead wrinkles appear as horizontal lines on the forehead which are more prominent when you raise your eyebrows. This muscle contracts when we raise our eyebrows. We’ll give inject Botox into your forehead to erase them.
Crow’s feet are found in the outer corner of the eyes. They appear more prominent when smiling or laughing. They occur as the skin becomes less elastic with age, combined with excessive sun exposure. Small injections at either side of the eyes are very effective in treating crow’s feet wrinkles.
Smoker’s lines appear around the mouth and above the top lip. They can occur in non-smokers but can appear more prominent for people that smoke. Injections placed around and above the top lip are all that is needed to reduce their appearance.
Being caused by natural collagen losses that occur with age, gravity also causes sagging skin around the chin, resulting in marionette lines being more detectable. Botox for lip lines can be injected into the corners of the mouth alleviating that "sad" appearance.
Bunny lines appear as wrinkles at the top and sides of the nose which can are visible when squinting or frowning. They are often caused by repeating certain facial expressions and can be successfully removed using Botox injections.
Botox can also be used to achieve a raised eyebrow. or “Chemical Brow Lift”. Carefully placed injections around the brow can raise the eyebrows by about 3 millimetres. This can open up the eyes and give a more youthful, "awake" appearance.
