Botox injections are a very effective treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines and face. They are our most popular treatment at Assure Clinic .
All our Botox injections are given by fully qualified and experienced cosmetic doctors, who specialise in tailoring the strength your treatments to your individual needs. This means if wanted, you can retain some expression of the facial muscles, giving a more natural and subtle look with so called “Baby Botox”.
The treatment itself takes around 15 minutes to complete and after the treatment you can drive or head back to work immediately, no recovery period is needed. It is an extremely safe procedure.
We offer a free follow up with a doctor two weeks after every Botox treatment to ensure that the treatment meets your expectations, If necessary a free top up of Botox can be given at this appointment.
The following are commonly treated areas with Botox:
The chin can be treated to give a less bulky and dimpled appearance which tends to occur as we age.
Frown lines can be seen as vertical lines in between the eyebrows and are common in people who frown a lot or have been overexposed to the sun. Small injections are licensed to treat these lines, in between and along the brow.
Forehead wrinkles appear as horizontal lines on the forehead which are more prominent when you raise your eyebrows. To treat these, small injections are given on the forehead
Crow’s feet are found in the outer corner of the eyes. They appear more prominent when smiling or laughing. They occur as the skin becomes less elastic with age, combined with excessive sun exposure. Small injections at either side of the eyes are licensed to treat crow’s feet wrinkles.
Smoker’s lines appear around the mouth above the top lip. They can occur in non smokers, but can appear more prominent in smokers. Injections placed around above the top lip are all that is needed to reduce their appearance.
Botox® can be injected into the corners of the mouth alleviating the sad appearance that can occur with ageing.
Bunny lines are wrinkles at the top of the nose which can appear when squinting or frowning and can be successfully treated with Botox® injections.
Botox® can also be used to achieve an eyebrow raise or “Chemical Brow Lift”. Carefully placed injections around the brow can raise the eyebrows by about 3 millimeters. This can open up the eyes and in women give a more youthful appearance.
Large cheek muscles can give rise to a square or bulky looking jaw. In some people, treating the masseter muscle with botox will soften the jaw line. It can also be helpful for people who grind their teeth.
