Botox Treatments For Lines & Wrinkles

By using facial muscles repeatedly throughout our lifetime, the skin is creased in areas of greatest use. The ageing process causes collagen and elastin production in the skin to reduce, so as we get older these areas of overuse become damaged and the lines become permanent.

Muscle relaxant injections (commonly known as Botox and recently Bocouture ) are our most popular anti-ageing treatment to prevent the formation of wrinkles and to soften existing lines. Popular areas for treatment are the glabella (frown lines between the eyes), peri-orbital area (crow’s feet) and the forehead.

How Do Botox Injections Work?

Botox treatments relax the injected muscles, therefore reducing movement. This reduced movement prevents creasing of the skin, hence reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox treatments work only on the specific muscles injected, leaving surrounding muscles to function as usual maintaining normal facial expression. The results are a smoother, younger-looking appearance which lasts for 4 to 6 months.
Botox injections can be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers and chemical peels to make your skin look even younger and fresher.

Botox Treatments to Prevent Lines Forming

Botox treatments also work as a preventative measure. If the skin is unable to crease, wrinkles are not able to develop. Over time the benefits of this treatment become more impressive.

Will the result look natural?

Gone are the days of the frozen forehead! Our medical practitioners are able to pin point the correct muscles responsible for lines and to accurately administer the dose required to smooth away wrinkles, whilst maintaining natural movement and expression. During consultation our medical practitioners will establish patients requirements and ensure a subtle but effective result.

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is caused when you smile and your upper lip becomes thin and lifted showing off your teeth and gums. This is due to an overactive muscle in the top lip causing it to pull back when over strenuous movement occurs in that area. The Botox injections are administrated in the nose to mouth lines, this channels a relaxant to that muscle. This results in less of your gum on show when you smile and you natural fuller lip appears back in place.

Perioral Rhytides / Smoker’s lines

This is a gathering of thin vertical lines stemming from the lips which is an affect of ageing that can occur in anyone but more common in those with a history of smoking. Lips tend to lose volume as we age and cause the mouth to be surrounded with fine lines by a repetitive bunching of the muscles around the mouth.

Downturned Mouth

As we age the skin can fall downwards on the corners of our mouth. This causes a “downturned mouth” which can resemble an upset expression when relaxed. This is because the Depressor Anguli Oris muscle has been over worked and is causing the corners of the mouth to drop down. By relaxing this muscle with Botox it will lift back up to its natural position. Some like to do this treatment with a combination of dermal fillers to increase volume in this area.

Puckered Chin

As we age we start to lose collagen and elasticity around the face, causing certain features to drop and skin to become loose. As the mouth is a point of the face that is continuously working, a lot of the ageing can begin here. A puckered chin is when the chin easily forms large indents and lines when the mouth holds expression. This can be common in all ages but can progress as we age. Botox injections relax the muscles causing this effect on the face and can help to make the profile more defined.

Masseter Muscle

At the other end of the spectrum there are people who feel their jawline is too defined and some females see this as masculine.

Overactive use of the teeth clenching together, i.e. someone who chews gums a lot tenses the muscles around the mouth and jaw adding definition. Another of our advanced Botox treatments is injecting in this area to relax the jaw muscles giving the face a softer appearance.

Playsmal Bands / Nefertiti Lift

Named after the Egyptian queen Nefertiti who was thought to have the perfect mandibular contour. This treatment uses Botox to lift the skin around the jaw giving it more definition. There are many factors that contribute to the ageing of the neck and can result in an all round aged appearance. By simply lifting up certain areas of the face we can bring back the youth lost and add more definition.

The platysmal muscle is a depressor complex constantly pulling downwards which can lead to the development of jowls or horizontal “necklace lines”. By using a combination of Botox injections into the platysmal bands with injections along and under the mandible horizontal rhytides will be reduced and improve the definition of the mandibular border.
