Botulinum toxin is injected through a fine sterile needle into the facial muscle of expression.
Treatment can cause mild discomfort over a few seconds.
Treatment is a safe and effective way of reducing frown, horizontal forehead and crows feet wrinkles.
It can also be used to smooth the nasal bunny lines, vertical lip lines, dimples on the chin, upturn the corners of the mouth and smooth the platysmal bands on the neck.
Side effects are minimal if any. Injection site tenderness and mild bruising may occur. Ptosis or drooping of the eye lid is very rare, much less so with the experienced injector.

Botulinum toxin should be administered by an experienced medically trained practitioner.
It should not to be used if pregnant or breast feeding as we have no research to prove it is safe for your foetus or child.
Care must be taken if diagnosed with neurological or bleeding disorders, currently suffering with a skin infection or allergy or taking particular medication. Your specialist will be able to advise you further.
Effects can be seen within 3 days and the complete effect in 2 weeks. I review all new clients after 2 weeks to ensure the desired effect is achieved.

Treatment lasts for 3-6 months. Shorter initially with increased intervals in time.
