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. What many people don’t realise is that Botox is the brand name of the active ingredient Botulinum toxin manufactured by a drug company called Allergan.
The muscles 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 giving a healthy, younger and refreshed look.

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 and slimming of the face shape creating youthful features. 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.

Ideal lines for treatment are crow’s feet, frown lines between the brows and worry lines across the forehead. We can 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.

We want to normalise muscles 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.

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 less 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 they will not look their best after. This is why we initially 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.
