The treatment uses a purified nerve-blocking agent, that is used to treat overactive facial and eye muscles. The drug works by blocking nerve transmission to specific muscles, putting those muscles to rest for up to six months.

This produces a smoothing of the skin and loss of involuntary wrinkles; especially frown lines, crows feet, and horizontal forehead wrinkles.

Relatively painless injections (3-12 depending on areas treated) are administered in the Clinic with an acupuncture-size needle. Local anaesthesia is not generally required.

How the treatment works


The muscles around the eyes and forehead are attached to the underside of the skin. Every time you frown or squint, these muscles contract and pull your skin into a wrinkle. Over time, these wrinkles become deeper, and are eventually permanently etched into your skin. The agent injected temporarily relaxes the muscles it is injected into. When the muscles on your forehead and around your eyes are relaxed, your skin can smooth out.

What results can I expect and how quickly?



A relaxing effect is noted by the end of the first week and continues for between three and six months. There is no change in sensation and no numbness. Many patients report a decrease in tension-type headaches and brow aches. Facial expression is maintained except for the vertical furrowing between the eyebrows.

Who performs the treatment?



The botox injections are administered by a nurse practitioner with extensive experience of this treatment technique.

Is there any down time?



Jogging, gym workouts and saunas should be avoided on the day of the procedure. It is a good idea to keep your head slightly elevated on the first night after treatment.

Are there any side effects?



The vast majority of patients have no side effects at all. About one in twenty patients may get a mild headache after the treatment. Rarely there may be a temporary eyelid weakness (ptosis) resulting from the injection, although this is totally reversible over time. Occasionally there will be a minor asymmetry evident after the treatment, but again this reverses in time.

Who is not suitable for this treatment?



Botox can be used by almost anyone; however, patients who are pregnant, breast feeding or who have a neurological disease should not be treated.

Is the treatment safe?



These injections have been used by thousands of patients over the last 15 years. The drug is produced in a controlled laboratory, and given in extremely small doses. Although it is a toxin, it is safe and there have been no serious side effects reported. Following treatment you can immediately resume full activity.
