Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Anti-Wrinkle treatment, more commonly known as BOTOX treatment targets the facial muscles, causing them to relax which results in a softening and smoothing out of the facial lines and wrinkles.

The most common areas that require targeting are the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.

Forehead lines are caused by the frontalis muscle, which is responsible for moving the eyebrows. As we age, we begin to get deepening horizontal lines which can be targeted using BOTOX to relax the muscle, thus smoothing out the wrinkles giving a plumped-up appearance.

Frown lines also known as glabellar lines or number 11s occur in the area between the eyebrows where vertical lines form. These can appear from frowning and are commonly associated with looking angry or worried. This treatment can smooth out these lines to provide a more natural look.

Crow’s feet or laughter lines form around the eye area where the skin is much thinner and more delicate. Making this usually where we see the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is injected into the muscles to smooth out these lines giving a more youthful appearance.

Gummy smile, where too much of the gum tissue is on show above the top teeth.  This can be treated with BOTOX to relax the muscles and therefore showing less of the gum area.  This is a less invasive treatment than surgery or orthodontic treatments that can also be used to correct this.

BOTOX is a prescription only medication and should only be carried out by a trained medical practitioner and prescriber. At Doc Plus our anti-wrinkle treatments are performed by our team of qualified and expert doctors in our HIS registered clinic.

When you look good you feel good, being comfortable in your own skin is self-care

During your consultation our doctor will offer you with personalised advice on what is the best course of treatment for you. You can choose to target, 1, 2 or 3 of these areas during your appointment.

You will have the option to add on the additional corrections such as Gummy Smile, bunny lines, smokers’ lines, dimpled chin, or downturned mouth.

The benefit of this treatment will last several months, before the effect slowly begins to wear off, at which point we will be happy to get you booked in for a top up.

The Botox treatment takes around 15- 45 minutes, depending upon how many areas you are having treated at your appointment time. After the treatment the area may be slightly red and swollen, however you can resume normal activities and drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.

The effects are not immediate, you will begin to see results in 2 -3 days, however full effect will take about 2 weeks.

The results typically last for 3-4 months or longer (up to about a year after several repeated treatments). Frequent anti-aging treatment at intervals of less than 3 months is not recommended and the frequency of treatments may be reduced according to the quality of your skin and your response to the treatment.

Yes – once the effects of the treatment have diminished, or if the effects of anti-aging treatment need to be enhanced, re-treatment is safe. We recommend waiting 3 months before your next treatment.

Side effects of this treatment are rare, however can include some redness, tenderness or bruising at the site of injection. In less than 1% of people, it can cause weakness in the muscles near to the site of injection resulting in a slight and temporary droop of the eyelid or eyebrow. This may last for a few weeks but will resolve with time. As with any medicine an allergic reaction may occur, this is however this is very rare.
