Forehead lines, also known as forehead wrinkles or ‘surprise lines,’ become more apparent as we age. Excessive lines on your forehead can give the face and skin an aged appearance. Horizontal forehead lines are mostly due to genetic ageing. Sun damage or smoking can also result in the formation of creases that are deeper and more difficult to treat. Our anti-ageing injectables can lessen the effect of forehead wrinkles but may not remove the lines completely.
Tiny quantities of Botulinum Toxin are injected into specific facial muscles allowing them to relax (or freeze). After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles move in a normal fashion so facial expressions are minimally affected. Botulinum Toxin is frequently used as a preventative treatment, to start before lines become too deep.
We only use genuine Botox to ensure the very best results possible. The dose is carefully calculated according to need and to make sure that the results are exactly right for your face. Nothing is diluted, everything is administered at the correct concentration. Everyone is different and therefore everyone is treated as an individual. Review appointments are offered to all of our clients with complimentary top ups if required. There are no hidden charges.
How long does Botox® last?
The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes after which most normal activities can resume immediately. We prefer to be safe and precise rather than fast. You will begin to see noticeable effects within two or three days. Two weeks after the initial treatment the beneficial effects become really clear. These effects are completely reversible and last from 3 to 6 months at which time they will gradually fade. Most clients return before the effect wears off completely to sustain the optimal effect for the longest period of time. Typical treatment involves 3 sessions in the first year and then 2–3 times in the second year.
What are the side effects?
The vast majority of patients experience no side-effects whatsoever. Occasionally, a small bruise at the injection site may occur which will disappear after a few days. Provided that Botox® injections are administered by an experienced practitioner with medical training, there are no serious risks.
Is Botox® painful?
Botox® injections are relatively pain free and over within in a matter of seconds. For extra reassurance we only use very high quality equipment to improve client comfort. BOTOX® is a registered trade mark of Allergan Inc.
