*With continued treatments, many patients find that the wrinkle reducing effects last longer in the forehead than the crow’s feet, so will often request a top up for the crow’s feet area before the other areas. The price for crow’s feet only is therefore reduced.
It has been available since 1987 and is used to treat lines on the forehead and also those around the eyes commonly known as crow’s feet. In 2006 it was licensed in the UK for improving the appearance of vertical frown lines between the eyes, also known as Glabellar lines.
The injections are quick and relatively painless and work by relaxing the facial muscles that produce frown and laughter lines. These lines will soften over a period of 10 days following the treatment and we therefore review all clients after 2 weeks to discuss the results and decide if top-up treatments are needed. There is no additional charge for the second appointment.
The effect of the injections lasts for about 3-4 months in the first year of treatment and thereafter for about 6 months, so to maintain the results we recommend 3 or 4 treatments in the first year and 2 or 3 treatments in subsequent years.
This treatment is very safe. There have been millions of treatments given worldwide and no serious adverse events have been recorded. Minor side effects may include some redness and swelling at the injection site, which usually lasts for less than an hour, and, less commonly, some bruising.
For optimal results, we advise avoiding any massage of the treated area, strenuous exercise 24 hours post treatment and alcohol consumption for 24 hours pre and post treatment. You will be able to resume your usual activities immediately, and there is no impact should you need to fly post-treatment.
Muscle-relaxing injections are not suitable if you are have any of the following: Are pregnant, breastfeeding, or undergoing IVF, have a history of MS, Myasthenia Gravis, Bells Palsy or if you are taking any muscle relaxants or anticoagulants.
