Treatment for frown, forehead and eye wrinkles

Botox® (Botulinum toxin type A) injections are now the UK's no 1 treatment for facial lines and wrinkles simply because it really does remove the telltale signs of ageing. It is available at all Facial Aesthetic Consultancy’s Clinics.


It is safe, quick and straightforward, and can be combined with other treatments such as Dermal Fillers to give you the complete facial makeover ideal.


It works by relaxing the dynamic facial muscles that are responsible for facial wrinkles. The main areas it is used for are the frown (Glabella), eye area (Crows Feet) and forehead areas. After a few painless injections you can carry on your normal day and wait for lines to soften over the next 3-5 days, it can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effects when depending on personal requirements a top-up may be administered. This relaxed, fresher look will stay with you for 3-6 months.
