There are 3 treatment types of prescription only Botulinum Toxin (BTA):
Botox made by Allergan
Azzalure made by Galderma
Bocouture made by Merz
Over time, the use of our facial muscles to form expressions can result in fine lines, wrinkles and a bulking up of some muscles. To combat this, I use one of the three types of BTA on various areas of the face and neck. Administered with a fine needle, the anti-wrinkle injection treatment blocks the chemical messages from the brain, relaxing the dynamic movement and softening these signs of ageing.
Facial Line Treatment injections are a quick and relatively pain-free treatment. You can treat several areas at the same time. This procedure can be administered to treat the following areas:
Horizontal Forehead Lines
Down Turned Lips / Droopy Mouth Corners
Vertical Lip Lines
Heavy Jaw Line (masseter muscle – slims the face)
Nefertiti Lift (tightens jawline and neck, lift cheeks)
Over the first few days following the treatment, gradual improvements can be seen, you will see optimum results at around 14 days. The effects usually last between 3 and 4 months, but can be significantly longer. A small vial can do up to 3 areas resulting in just a soft natural result, if there are more areas to treat or a more significant result is required, then a larger vial is advised.
Facial Line Treatment injections should only be prescribed by a medically qualified practitioner, such as myself, as your safety is my number one priority. During the consultation, I will complete a facial assessment, both in relaxed and animated positions, and discuss possible results. I will ask about your medical history, advise you of any contraindications or precautions, possible side effects and what this prescription medicine is licensed for.
You will need to complete a medical questionnaire and consent form. The treatment will be a separate appointment to give you time to consider all the information. I also include a two-week follow up appointment after the treatment to check results and adjust if necessary.
I am experienced in using all three types of Botulinum Toxin Type A, so I will help you understand all of the options of this type of treatment, including active preventative measures, such as skincare products.
