Wrinkle relaxing Injection treatment

Anti-Wrinkle injections (also known as BOTOX®) is a simple, safe and effective way to improve fine lines and deep wrinkles in the upper part of the face. They work to relax facial muscles making lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, less obvious.

This procedure can have remarkable results in improving the wrinkles resulting from hyperactive facial muscles that occur our skin looses its elasticity with age. It is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and ‘crows feet’ around the eyes.

Muscle relaxing injections using Botox, which can be completely tailored to your face, offer you an effective and far less invasive treatment choice to smooth away lines and wrinkles. The result is a softer, more relaxed and healthier appearance. The effect usually lasts around four months and can be repeated when needed. Most patients require less frequent treatments over time as the muscles ‘retrain’ and weaken from disuse.

Areas that can be treated with BOTOX® include:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Crows feet
  • Frown lines between eyebrows (Glabella)
  • Bunny lines
  • Smile lift (downturned mouth)
  • Lipstick or smokers lines


How does it work?

Botulinum Toxin (commercially named BOTOX®) is a purified protein produced by a bacteria, when carefully injected it relaxes contracted facial muscles. Botulinum Toxin is blocks certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract and softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles that are already formed.

The treatment is ideal for easing over-active muscle movement that can cause deep frown lines and crows feet. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating, alleviate the symptoms of migraines and redefine the jawline.

What can I expect in treatment?

Your skin is cleaned and small amounts of Botulinum Toxin are injected into the muscles of the face to be treated. A thin needle is used to minimise discomfort. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.

Are there any side effects?

It’s important that injections be placed precisely in order to avoid side effects. Lucy Foster Aesthetics have a wealth of experience in administering Botulinum Toxin.

BOTOX® treatment isn’t painful and most clients compare the feeling to that of a quick sharp scratch. You may experience some mild swelling or bruising at the injection site.

How many treatments will I need?

A single treatment of BOTOX® can last between 3-4 months depending on the individual case.

What results can I expect to see?

Results don’t show immediately and you can expect to wait a few days for the treatment to take affect and up to 10 days – 2 weeks for the full effect to be seen. Results will last for a period of up to 4 months, after which many clients return for further treatment.
