The household name of facial aesthetics, Botox® is a purified protein that, when injected under the skin, relaxes the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Botox® can be used for forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and laughter lines.
What does the treatment involve?
An ultra-fine needle is used to precisely deliver small amounts of a purified protein. This prevents certain facial muscles from contracting, which stops the skin from creasing.
Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and the effects will show in a couple of days. These injections are most often used in the upper part of the face to correct forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet.
The effect of the treatment will approximately last 3-4 months.

Botox has been proven to help reduce excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. It effectively blocks the nerves that cause the excessive sweating and can help treat a sometimes very embarrassing condition.
