WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is used for cosmetic purposes to smooth or soften the fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions, as well as for medical purposes in reducing certain nerve impulse problems, including spasticity and clenching of muscles.
Controlled amounts of Botox are directly injected into the muscles to weaken them temporarily. The mechanism of the toxin causes temporary muscle paralysis by stopping the neurotransmitter from reaching the motor nerve terminal. This stops the muscle contraction which in turn cause wrinkles to relax and skin to soften, creating a more youthful appearance.
Results are noticeable from 3-14 days after treatment, and last an average of 3-4 months.
Botox can be used on the following areas:
- Frown lines (1)
- Forehead (2)
- Crows Feet (3)
- Underarm sweating
- Hand sweating
- Feet sweating
- Bunny Lines (4)
- Sad Smile Lines (marionettes 5)
- Pebbled/Dimpled Chin (6)
- Nefertiti Neck Lift/Jowl Tightening (7)
- Nose Slimming (8)
- Nose Lift (8)
- Gummy Smile (9)
- Lip Flip (9)
- Masseter (for bruxism/clenching)
How does it work?
Because of the way our muscles work in the face, we have to treat multiple areas together - we cannot just treat one area on its own, as it doesn't work that way. Many injectors do offer 1 area, but in doing this, it has a knock-off effect on other areas...
Very simply, we have 2 types of muscles on our face - elevator muscles and depressor muscles.
Elevator muscles lift up and depressor muscles pull down.
These 2 types of muscle work in synergy with each other as one acts a 'push' and the other a 'pull'.
This means that if we inject toxin into a depressor muscle, it will paralyse that muscle allowing the elevator muscle to lift.
If we inject into an elevator muscle, then the depressor muscle will have free reign to drop/pull down.
If we are clever and strategic as to where we inject the toxin, we can manipulate this process of allowing certain muscles and lift and others to pull down. This is why we cannot just inject in 1 area.
So by injecting into both the forehead (frontalis) and eye area (orbicularis oculi), we can allow the forehead to lift giving us a little brow lift which will give a more youthful and rested look.
It will also smooth out the eye muscle; thus eliminating the crows feet!

How do I book an appointment?
If you are a new client to me and would like me to administer your botox/anti-wrinkle injections, then you will just need to pop along to a
one-time prescriber clinic that are held at my clinic, monthly for a brief consultation.
During the consultation, we will discuss what you would like to improve and draw up a treatment plan.
Once your consultation is complete, you will then be able to book to have your actual botox/anti-wrinkle appointment with me at any time you like.
