Wrinkle Reduction Injections (Botox)
Wrinkle reduction injections are most effective at removing lines of facial expression or laughter lines i.e. those around the eyes and forehead (frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet). It also has some indications for use around the mouth and for bands in the neck.
The treated area may look a little red for 6 hours after treatment and makeup can be applied afterwards. Sometimes you can get bruising following treatment. The risk of this can be reduced by not taking aspirin for 5 days prior to treatment.
The effect usually lasts for 3-4 months on average (range 2-6 months), most patients will return for repeat treatment at 4-5 monthly intervals.
