The product works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause these frowns, leaving the skin smoother and unwrinkled.

We will determine exactly where to to use the product to achieve the best possible results. No anaesthetic is required. The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and most patients describe the discomfort as a sting, lasting only seconds. After the injection, it takes 2-3 days for the product to begin taking full effect, and full effect is seen at about day 10. The effects last for up to 4 months and can be ‘topped up’ easily when the expression lines slowly return. Repeated treatments also lead to a longer lasting effect therefore increasing the duration between treatments.

Do you suffer from Excessive Sweating?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects millions of people around the world. It can occur anywhere on the body especially:

  • underarms
  • hands
  • feet

The product can be used to treat this condition by targeting sweating at its source. When injected, it enters the specific glands responsible for excessive sweating and blocks the release of a chemical that signals the perspiration. The procedure takes about 10 minutes and its effect can last 7-8 months. The amount of time the product remains effective may vary so when symptoms begin to return re-schedule a new appointment.
