Wrinkle relaxing injections:
These are used to smooth facial expression lines formed by moving the underling muscles. The
commonly affected areas we treat are the forehead (frown lines) and the eyes (laughter lines or crow’s feet), but we can also treat
other areas of the face. We can soften neck lines and upper lip lines, correct a dimpled chin, lift the eyebrows, lift the corners
of the mouth and reduce a gummy smile. The injections contain a protein derivative of botulinum toxin which when injected into
the muscle blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle preventing it from moving, relaxing the overlying skin and smoothing the
Treatment involves a number of small injections which are relatively comfortable and take approximately fifteen minutes
to carry out. The results can be seen after approximately 6 days and can last up to six months.
There can be a few side
effects of treatment - redness and sometimes bruising at the injection sites. This usually disappears after a few days.
This is also known as hyperhidrosis and can be uncomfortable or embarrassing.
We use injections to
block the signals from the nerves which stimulate the sweat glands, thus reducing the sweating.
Treatment involves an initial
test where the treatment area (often the axilla or armpit) is wiped with iodine and then starch is applied - the more sweaty
areas become darker. These darker areas are then injected with the drug to block the signals. The results can take two to three
weeks to become noticeable and then may last between six and twelve months.
