BTX injections are available for the temporary improvement or dissolving of age lines (glabellar lines) in adult patients under the age of 65 years.
This injectable is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. Just one 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days, the stubborn, angry-looking frown lines between your brows dramatically relax for up to four months. No surgery. No recovery. And these injections are safe and widely tested.
In addition to the cosmetic applications of this injectable, BTX can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and migraines.
The treatment is a natural, purified protein, which in very low doses relaxes the overactive muscles that cause frown lines to form. Treatment is simple, non-surgical and smoothes the deep, persistent lines that developed over time.
These injections have been safely used to treat a variety of conditions for more than 10 years, for multiple uses, as described above.
It generally remains only in the treated muscle and gradually disappears without breaking down or travelling throughout the body. Many areas of the body can be treated with this injection, so please consult your doctor.
Results for diminishing or removing age lines will last about four months. At the time of your first treatment, do consult with your doctor or nurse, as it can depend on the individual.
No, it won’t. But you can expect a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your frown lines. Overall, you'll look more relaxed and refreshed but not like "you've had work done". It is imperative to seek treatment from a trained professional, to ensure this natural look is achieved. At The Skin Centre we pride ourselves on giving you the best possible results without the evidence of treatment. Call us on (07) 55 977 170 or email [email protected] for more information or to make an appointment.
It depends on where you are having this injectable. If in the brow area, yes, but the only expression you'll lose is the unintentional frown caused by the overactive muscles between your brows. So you can frown, smile, or look surprised-without the creases and wrinkles between your brows.
If the treatment is for the forehead or crows feet, then if these lines are blocked there will be a more noticeable loss of expression.
At The Skin Centre, our trained Doctors and Nurses will consult with you prior to treatment as to your goals. Then, we administer several tiny injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although a cold pack is often used prior to injecting. The entire treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and most patients compare the sensation to an insect bite. Most people return to work or normal activity immediately.
Within days, you'll see a marked improvement, which may continue to improve for as long as a week and should last up to four months.
If you're between the ages of 18 and 65 and are wanting to reduce the effects of ageing, these injections may be for you.
Any authorised healthcare professional can administer these injections, but Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists, or other aesthetic specialty physicians are generally more experienced.
Discomfort is minimal and brief. A local anesthetic cream or ice can minimise discomfort. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.
