Smooth Away Fine Lines & Wrinkles


These gentle, prescription only Botox injections are a natural protein used to relax muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Many people don’t realise that Botox is the brand name of the active ingredient Botulinum toxin manufactured by a drug company called Allergan.

The muscle actions of the face either raise or lower. Dr. Anna looks at the face as a whole to achieve facial balance and a natural not frozen appearance. The most common areas are crows feet and frown lines. If we eliminate these it can lift the brow, making the eyes appear larger and more beautiful. Overall this gives a healthy, younger and refreshed look.

How we age

As we age and the facial bones shrink, the skin and muscles sag causing loss of definition of the jawline. The beauty ideal for a female face shape is oval and for males a chiseled jawline is desirable. Placement of Botox in specific muscles via the Nefertiti lift gives a sharpened jaw contour. In patients with a square shaped face caused by overactive jaw muscles (via teeth grinding), it can reduce the bulk and slim the lower face. This in turn creates youthful features.

Ideal lines for treatment are crow’s feet (at the side of the eyes), frown lines between the brows and worry lines across the forehead. It’s possible to provide a non-surgical brow lift, soften smoker’s lines and relax the downward pull of the corners of the mouth so you loose that sad, grumpy look. It’s important to know that for treatment to be optimally effective, you should start treatment when the lines are still dynamic and not yet static.

It’s important to soften the muscles action whilst still retaining natural facial movement. It may well be that a full face approach is needed rather than isolated muscles. This gives the most harmonious overall look. Treating an isolated area means leaving other muscles hypermobile and possibly even overcompensating for the reduced movement of the muscles which have had Botox.

Maintenance of Botox

The effects gradually wear off and repeat treatments are usually indicated at 3-4 month intervals. With continued treatments the muscles are not used as much so reduce in size. This means intervals can be extended the longer Botox is used which saves the patient money. There is subsequently a reduction in the  number of times you’re injected with a needle too.

Research on the criteria for beauty are a natural look, self-confidence and attractive skin. If someone has acne, pigmentation and wrinkles before Botox it will not address skin concerns. This is why initially a treatment plan should promote achieving healthy skin which is smoother,thicker and healthier. Skin free of disease and naturally hydrated will give you the best results. This means the effects are even more natural and you get the ‘wow’ factor rather than people saying you look ‘done’.

More Information

At consultation, a thorough facial analysis takes place detailing what functions the muscles do and how relaxing them can provide aesthetic benefits. Conversely, if a person’s face has a droopy brow it may not be desirable to relax the brow raising muscle, hence, a bespoke treatment plan to each individual is paramount for great results.There are also more advanced techniques to help contour the jawline and slim the face if desirable to the balance of the face as a whole.

The duration of treatment results is dependent on age, metabolism and gender but typically is in the region of 3-6 months, as the muscle relaxes and is used less, there tends to be longer time needed between treatment intervals the longer Botox has been administered.

Love my Botox, best I've ever had, I used to get a heavy forehead feeling when I'd had it done elsewhere previously. Dr Anna explained why that had happened and how to avoid it happening again, it worked and I'm really pleased, thank you. Also had a course of Profhilo which has made my skin feel beautiful, smooth and hydrated. Love the online booking option too.

Can not thank Dr Anna enough for helping me sort my skin out. I’d tried a lot of skincare products to calm my acne but nothing really got to grips with it and it was really affecting my confidence. I’ve been using the Dr Zein Obagi zo skinhealth acne products for a while now and my skin is completely clear which I’m so, so grateful for, highly recommend. I’ve also had a course of Dermapen microneedling treatments to help smooth some acne scarring from the past which has really helped change the texture of my skin, very pleased ?

I've been having treatments for six months now, I started with a lot of pigmentation on my skin after pregnancy. Dr Anna advised me I had melasma from pregnancy hormones which caused the dark patches I had on my face. I've been on Dr zein obagi skincare which have been amazing at lifting the dark patches, I've got my best ever skin which is unbelievable compared to how I looked before. I've also had some dermapen treatments which I've noticed has lifted and smoothed my skin. I'm over the moon,thank you so much!!!

I'd noticed my skin looking dull and just generally felt I was looking older but I wasn't really sure where to start with improving things. I'd done a bit of research about Botox and fillers and wanted to find out more. Dr Anna explained that Botox and fillers would help lift and support my face but I should also look at getting my skin thicker with Zein Obagi skincare so I would get even better results. After a few months I really did see and feel a difference, my skins lifted, plumper and really smooth. My Botox has made me look fresher and is natural looking. I've had some filler at the sides of my cheeks which has really lifted my face up and I feel back to me at my best, thank you.

I have very dry skin and suffer from rosacea, I have used a lot of products over the years but yet to find one that worked for me. I booked a consultation with Dr Crossley after a friend recommended her clinic, Straight away I was put at ease and felt very reassured that they could help me. The following week I had a Hollywood peel and Anna and her assistant Sue discussed what products would be best for me. I came away feeling absolutely amazing and now have wonderful glowing skin and the products are also amazing. Anna and Sue are amazing and very friendly and professional could not recommend highly enough. I will be returning soon for some more wonderful treatments.

I have recently visited a*aesthetics after been highly recommend by a friend. I have never visited a clinic before so was very unsure what to expect but was instantly impressed by the service I received . Dr Anna Crossley put me at ease with her lovely kind manner. I have visited the clinic three times firstly for a red carpet peel which felt amazing and left my skin glowing which I highly recommend, the second time I had Botox I explained to Anna which areas I wanted doing and the results have been amazing just what I wanted and the third time I had derma pen which once again had great results. I have since started using ZO SKIN HEALTH wow it’s amazing . Thankyou Dr Anna Crossley for giving me my glow back xx
