Injections in small quantities, in specific overactive muscles, cause the localised muscles to relax – which allows the smoothing of the overlying skin and reducing wrinkles. Once we have completed the treatment, the client should see reduced muscle activity and wrinkle in one to two days. Botulinum Toxin usually takes about two weeks for the effects to develop fully. You should except the results to last an estimated three to four months.


How long do dermal fillers last for?

In general fillers may need topping up after 12-18 months, depending on the site of injection as well as the amount of filler injected. Well known brands are Restylane and Juvéderm.

Restylane is water based and as some of the water will be lost then the practitioner must inject more filler at the beginning. This can be a little noticeable and disconcerting at first.

Juvéderm is not water based and so one can inject just the right amount of volume that is needed for an immediately acceptable lift.

How old do you have to be for this treatment?
