Known as Botox, this is the number one cosmetic treatment used for dynamic lines (movement associated). The treatment works by relaxing the underlying muscles that cause the skin to crease and develop lines and wrinkles which are the result of normal facial expression and those lines around the face we would like to hold back.
The treatment is most commonly used for crows feet around the eyes and frown lines on the forehead and upper part of the face although lower parts of the face around the lips and chin can can also be treated. Three main areas injected are:

  • Crows Feet (laughter lines)
  • Glabellar (lines between the eyes)
  • Forehead

The effects of Botox usually last between 3-5 months . Patients will see an effect within the first 2-3 days after the first injection but the full effect takes 5-7 days.
