Wrinkle Smoothing

Tiny amounts of Botulinum toxin are used to relax parts of the muscle responsible for┬áthe “wrinkles” to achieve a temporary smoothing effect which lasts around 3-6 months.

In the photos below wrinkles around the eye have been relaxed ( the patient is smiling in both photos) and frown lines have disappeared ( patient frowning at maximal effort in both photos).

Deeper lines (e.g. nose and mouth lines) are better treated using hyaluronic acid fillers to “plump up” the line from underneath and produce a pleasing smoother effect (see www.restylane.co.uk) which lasts for 6 -12 months.
