BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age.

One 10-minute treatment, a few tiny injections and within days there's a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines between the brows, which can last up to 4-6 months. Results may vary.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.

A million people have been treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic since FDA approval in 2002. Not just models and movie stars, but people from all types of professions. BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth moderate to severe frown lines between your brows for up to 4-6 months.

What is Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum Toxin has been used for over 25 years and is a type of purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Tiny doses of this substance are injected just under the skin into the muscles that are being treated to reduce wrinkles. It is very safe and is injected directly into facial muscles in very tiny amounts during treatment.

How does it work?
Botulinum Toxin is injected into the target areas and works specifically by blocking the nerve impulse, allowing the muscles responsible for the excessive contractions that cause wrinkles to relax.  When these treatments are injected into the wrinkles, the toxin proceeds to relax the muscles of the injected area, smoothing the skin and seeming to slow down and even reverse the aging process. Other nerve functions, such as the skins sense of touch are not affected.


How many treatments will I need?
In most cases patients can see a real difference after one treatment. This is because Botulinum Toxin works gradually, smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months. Every face is unique and we will advise you on how many treatments you are likely to need and how often, depending on the results you would like to achieve.

How long does Botulinum Toxin work for?
The effects of Botulinum Toxin often last up to 4 months, depending on the patient. If you decide to stop treatment, previous lines and wrinkles will gradually return.

Is the treatment painful?
It is very rare for treatment with Botulinum Toxin to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if at all during the treatment itself but that is all. Rest assured we will talk you through what to expect before your first injection, so you will be fully prepared prior to treatment.

I’m worried that I’ll end up with a “trout pout”?
Rest assured following an extensive assessment we will aim to meet your expectations being mindful not to over-contour the lips. In this way we avoid over bulking out of this sensitive area.

Can I go back to work after the procedure?
With Botulinum Toxin injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours. Following Dermal Filler injections of the mouth area you may experience temporary mild bruising and swelling so you may decide not to return to work that day.



As your skin ages, it loses its natural collagen and hyaluronic acid. This weakens your skin's structure and appearance.  Dermal Filler treatments reintroduce either of these two substances to the skin to smooth out wrinkles, frown lines or folds on your face. Hyaluronic acid can also be used to resculpt your lips, making them look fuller or reducing the wrinkles around them.

The facial rejuvenation treatments even use your own skin cells to stimulate the production of your skin's natural collagen in the problem areas.  Our dental Spa offers these treatments from fully trained dentists, letting you add another dimension to your dental makeover for a dramatic new look.
