FAQ

Muscle-relaxing injections utilise a toxin known as onobotulinumtoxinA to halt muscle contractions, effectively reducing lines and wrinkles. This safe and effective method is a cornerstone of facial rejuvenation, offering a more youthful appearance without the need for surgical interventions.

By targeting and relaxing dynamic lines on the face and neck, these injections smooth the skin for a softer, more youthful look. Treatment areas span from the upper and lower face to the neck, addressing concerns like frown lines, forehead creases, eye lines, and more for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Upper Face Rejuvenation

The upper face is often where signs of aging first become noticeable, with expression lines like forehead furrows, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes becoming more pronounced over time. Botox effectively addresses these dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for their formation, resulting in a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

Lower Face and Neck Contouring

Beyond the upper face, Botox has a pivotal role in enhancing the lower facial and neck areas. Treatments can subtly redefine the jawline, reduce the appearance of a pebbled or dimpled chin, and soften the downturned corners of the mouth. The “Nefertiti Lift,” a technique named after the Egyptian queen known for her elongated neck, utilises Botox to redefine the jawline and smooth the neck’s vertical bands, providing a more youthful and elegant neck and jawline silhouette.

Correcting Gummy Smiles and Teeth Grinding

A gummy smile, where excessive gum tissue is visible above the top teeth when smiling, can be aesthetically displeasing for some. Botox offers a simple, non-surgical solution by relaxing the upper lip’s elevator muscles, reducing the amount of gum exposure when smiling. Similarly, bruxism or teeth grinding, a condition that can lead to jaw pain, headaches, and tooth damage, can be mitigated with Botox injections into the masseter muscles, easing muscle tension and preventing the involuntary grinding of teeth.

Managing Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be a source of discomfort and embarrassment. Botox has emerged as an effective treatment for managing this condition, particularly in the underarms. By inhibiting the signals that stimulate sweat production, Botox can significantly reduce sweating, offering relief for those affected by this condition.

Innovative Combinations: Aquagold and Beyond

The advent of treatments like Aquagold fine touch has introduced a new dimension to Botox applications. This microchanneling device delivers a customised blend of Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers, and other skin rejuvenating ingredients directly into the skin’s surface. This not only addresses wrinkles and fine lines but also enhances skin texture, tightens pores, and imparts a radiant, dewy complexion.

Quick and efficient, these treatments are designed to fit into the busiest of schedules, taking just 15-30 minutes. This convenience makes it an attractive option for those seeking effective cosmetic improvements without significant downtime.
Enjoy the transformative effects for up to 3 months, with visible improvements starting from day 5 and reaching full potency by 2 weeks. This duration offers a balance between lasting impact and the flexibility to adjust treatments as desired over time.
Minimal downtime is a key benefit, with most patients experiencing only transient redness or bruising that quickly resolves. This allows for an immediate return to daily activities, underscoring the procedure’s convenience and ease.

While not typically necessary due to the minimal discomfort associated with the fine needles used, anesthetic cream is available upon request to ensure a comfortable experience for all patients.

The experience of receiving anti-wrinkle injections is generally associated with minimal discomfort rather than pain. Most of my patients report feeling only a mild sensation during the procedure, which quickly dissipates once the treatment is complete. The use of ultra-fine needles and my precise technique ensures the process is as comfortable as possible.
Initially, you may notice a sensation of restricted movement in the treated areas, a sign that the Botox is taking effect. For example, if your forehead has been treated, you’ll find your ability to frown or raise your eyebrows is diminished. This sensation becomes more familiar over time, and in most cases, it’s not noticeable, especially in areas where movement is less pronounced.
While there’s no prescribed age for starting anti-wrinkle injections, I generally recommend them from the mid-30s onwards. This is typically when static lines become more evident, and individuals seek to maintain a youthful appearance. However, treatments for conditions like teeth grinding or excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be considered at a younger age, based on individual needs.
Side effects from Botox are usually minimal and transient. Some patients might experience temporary redness, mild swelling at the injection sites, or bruising, which can last up to 14 days. Applying makeup after 24 hours and using arnica cream can help conceal and alleviate bruising. A minority of patients report tenderness at the injection site or a headache, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief. Very rarely, Botox may affect an unintended muscle, but this is an infrequent occurrence and something I strive to prevent through careful planning and execution of your treatment.
My philosophy is to enhance your natural beauty, not alter it drastically. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals extensively to ensure the results look as natural as possible. By adopting a conservative approach, I aim to refresh and rejuvenate your appearance while maintaining your ability to express yourself naturally.

Before administering Botox, a thorough consultation is conducted to evaluate your suitability. As Botox is a prescription-only medication, your medical history and facial structure are carefully assessed. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, or those with certain neuromuscular disorders, are advised against undergoing treatment.

To minimize the risk of bruising and other side effects, it’s recommended to avoid alcohol, certain supplements (like Vitamin E and Omega 3 Fish oils), and medications with blood-thinning properties (e.g., Aspirin and Ibuprofen) for a specified period before your treatment. Additionally, stopping retinoid use a couple of days before and after treatment can help ensure the best possible outcome.

After receiving Botox, avoid touching or rubbing the treated area, applying makeup for at least 24 hours, engaging in strenuous exercise, and consuming alcohol to reduce the risk of bruising. Also, keeping upright for the first 4 hours post-treatment and avoiding other skin treatments for 2 weeks can enhance the treatment’s effectiveness and longevity.
