There are many reasons why you might feel the need for wrinkle relaxing injections (Botox). Ageing results in loss of elasticity in the skin giving a looser, dull look. This can be due to simple genetics and how your skin changes over time, but also a result of continual movement and expression, sun exposure, stress, smoking, alcohol consumption and dehydration. Over time all of these things combine to make permanent wrinkles.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections (commonly known as botox) can reverse and prevent these signs of ageing no matter what has happened to your skin in the past. By reducing overactive muscle movement in the face, your skin becomes relaxed and gets a chance to recover from continual movement. The result essentially irons out your skin giving it a smoother younger look.
How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections work?
Botulinum Toxin works by relaxing selected muscles that pull the skin, causing lines and wrinkles. It does this by blocking impulses from the nerve endings to the tiny facial muscles, causing temporary ‘freezing’ of the muscle responsible for frowning and similar lines around the eyes when smiling. As the muscles relax, the lines will soften or even disappear completely. The injections are completely safe and may be performed in as little as twenty minutes, with results lasting for an average of three to four months. Botox Can be used for:
- Frown Lines
- Forehead lines / Wrinkles
- Crow’s Feet
- Bunny Lines
- Downturned Mouth
- Gummy Smiles
- Overactive Neck Bands
- Excessive Sweating
BOTOX® Botulinum Toxin Type A
BOTOX® Cosmetics is one of the top four licensed toxin products which is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.The injections contain the active ingredient Botulinum Toxin type A, which is a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. BOTOX® Cosmetics temporarily weakens the muscles that gather your skin into folds, making it crease-proof enough to prevent wrinkles becoming established. When injected, it attached itself to the target muscle. Once it wears off, normally after about four months, the muscles regenerate and regain enough strength to start creasing up your skin again.

Can I be sure I won't get the ‘FROZEN FACE’ look?
It reduces muscle movement, not prevents it. The frozen look people are well acquainted with is due to overly large amount of the purified protein being used in each treatment. Our experienced doctor at Laser Chic is known for providing a gentle approach with natural looking results. He will administrate a small amount, inviting you back for review in two weeks to assess if more is required.
Does it hurt?
What can I expect when I have my treatment?
At your initial consultation, prior to your treatment, you will meet with your doctor who will spend time going through the exact science behind anti-wrinkle products and explaining how it works. He would then review your past medical history to assess your suitability to proceed and agree the areas you want treated. He will talk you through the procedure, answering any questions you might have. Only when and if you are comfortable and ready, will your treatment starts.
The treatment area will be cleansed and the product administrated with a fine needle placed no more than 3mm into the skin. Some patients barely even feel this whilst some will feel a small sting on needle entry that clears within seconds.
When will I notice the treatment working?
The wrinkle relaxing injection takes up to 10 days to have full effect. By week 2 your face will feel smooth and fresher. Over several months the muscle breaks down the treatment and by month 3-4 you will notice gradual movement returning to the treated muscles. Most patients come back for a second treatment from 4 months onwards depending on how much movement you wish to have.
Large studies have shown that the results last longer after each consecutive treatment.
