Botulinum toxin type A, is a purified protein that can temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles.
As we age the skin is creased in areas of repeated facial expression. The ageing process causes a loss in the skin’s ability to repair itself so that in the areas of over-use the lines become more visible. By reducing the movement of the muscle the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover and the lines gradually soften.
This treatment may be used for
- Forehead & frown lines
- Crows feet
- Bunny lines
- Lip lines
- Dimple chin
- Marionette lines
- Eyebrow shaping
What does treatment involve
Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and involves several tiny injections with a very fine needle around the areas to be treated. The treatment is not painful, with only minimal and brief discomfort, like a small sting.
When will I see results
An improvement will be noticeable after 5 days, the greatest effect will visual around 2 weeks.
How long will the treatment last
Results can last up to four months. Emma will review the treatment after two weeks have passed and offers a ‘top up’ if required. Maintenance treatment is likely to be required every 3-4 months for a lasting result during the first two years of treatment with longer intervals thereafter.
Emma offers a full consultation prior to treatment to chat about your concerns, assess your needs and answer any questions you may have. This attracts a £30 reservation fee payable in advance, which is then redeemable against any treatments.
