    How do the wrinkle reduction injections work?

    Wrinkle treatments do not require any anaesthetic, although if preferred the target area may first be numbed with a cold pack or local anaesthetic cream.

    A very small amount of the relaxant is injected very precisely into several locations on the face. Impulses are blocked from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that help contribute to wrinkles. The muscles therefore cannot contract and tend to relax.

    Although the results are dramatic, it will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

    How long does wrinkle-reducing treatment take?

    This is a simple non surgical procedure that, depending on the number of areas you wish to treat, only takes 10-15 minutes and so allows you to return home immediately afterwards.

    What results can I expect?

    The overall effect is a smoother, natural-looking, more youthful appearance.

    When will I begin to notice the effects?

    Once you have been treated, it usually takes two to fourteen days before treatment actually takes effect.

    How long do results last for?

    Individuals vary however, for most people the results last from 4 to 6 months.

    Is it safe?

    Treatments have been safely and successfully used for more than 12 years on over 1 million people worldwide. Any side effects are temporary and localised to the area injected.
