Botox Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment

FACE Treatment

About the treatment

Botox is the world's No.1 facial treatment for lines and wrinkles to help us look younger and more refreshed.

The Botox treatment involves tiny painless injections into specific areas of the skin to temporarily relax the muscles under the skin, which, in turn, in turn softens out the lines created by repetitive facial expressions over the years. The best thing about Botox is that it only takes about 5-10 minutes to do, and you can resume your normal day afterwards as there is no downtime.

Benefits of Botox

Botox treatments target certain areas of the face that show ageing and tiredness and by reducing these can help improve your overall appearance.

  • Frown line reduction – the frown lines are often known as the glabella area and either form a 11 i.e. two lines or a single vertical line. These are caused by repetitive use of these muscles and by relaxing them will reduce or remove these lines so you look less angry and more refreshed.
  • Forehead line smoothing – the forehead lines are our main form or expression and the overuse of these muscles creates furrows across the forehead. Smoothing out these whilst maintaining some movement is the key skill of administering botox safely.
  • Eye line de-creasing – the eye lines or crows feet are from smiling and laughter and get deeper with age and contribute to sagging skin later in life. By reducing the excessive creasing means the lines will soften and the skin will retain its strength for longer.
  • Jawline slimming – the masseter muscles that we use to bite often over clenches that can lead to teeth grinding but also asymmetry of the face particularly in women where the jaw looks too wide. By relaxing these muscles it creates an effect of a slimmer more defined jawline.
  • Jowl reduction – certain muscles depressor oris angulae and the platysma bands of our neck often can accentuate the jowls of the lower face. Injecting these with specific amounts of botox can help elevate the jowls (2). Often referred to as the Nefertiti lift.
  • Excess sweating – botox helps stop underarm and excessive sweating
  • Migraines – treatments with botox injections has clinical research showing effective use for migraines and headaches.
