What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a natural, purified protein in sterile laboratory conditions.
Anti-wrinkle injections are strategically injected into specific wrinkle-causing muscles, creating an improved appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections relax the underlying muscles thereby smoothing overlying skin and causing lines and wrinkles to soften and prevents them from deepening and new lines developing in the treated area.
In addition to reducing wrinkles, another great benefit of injectable anti-wrinkle treatments is the lift that they give to your face; taking away the appearance of tiredness and creating a more youthful, refreshed you.

What does a treatment session involve?
During a free consultation to assess your areas of concern your accredited Face Body & Soul doctor or nurse will discuss the appropriate treatment options and the expected results. After your consultation, the injection treatment will take around 10 minutes to perform. No anaesthetic is required as this is a fine needle treatment and is virtually painless. The results will develop over the next few days and last for up to 4 months.
It is a non surgical treatment whereby a small amount of BTX is injected into selected facial muscles by your doctor using a very fine needle. Generally BTX treatment for glabellar frown lines takes around 10 minutes.
Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and no anaesthetic is usually required. The injection may sting for a few seconds but normal activities can be resumed soon after. After the injection, it takes 2-3 days for BTX treatment to begin taking effect.
The dose recommended for the treatment of frown lines will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your frown lines. Your Face Body & Soul doctor or nurse will know what the best dose is for you and which muscles to inject to give you the best results.
How does BTX therapy work?
Many facial wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to make repeated facial expressions. BTX treatments can be used to relax specific facial muscles that cause expression lines. Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them and continue to make those undesirable facial expressions. After treatment the lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
How long does BTX therapy last?
The effect can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeat BTX treatments, the effect tends to last longer.
Does BTX treatment cause more wrinkles to form?
BTX treatment will relax the facial muscles that cause expression lines. It does not cause more wrinkles to form. If you decide not to have futher BTX treatments your muscles will eventually return to normal activity and your wrinkles will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.
Will facial expressions be affected by BTX therapy?
BTX therapy works specifically on the muscles treated. This means that any muscle left untreated, including untreated facial muscles, should not be affected by BTX treatment.
Your Face Body & Soul Doctor will determine the best dose for you and which muscles to inject to give you the best result.
Are there any side effects?
is also used to treat patients of most age groups in a variety of therapeutic indications including cerebral palsy in children, movement disorder (head, neck shoulder, face) and axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive, underarm sweating).
In the amounts used for the treatment of frown lines, the side effects are usually temporary and localized to the area of injection.
Possible side effects include headaches, pain, burning, swelling or redness at the injection site, local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids, skin tightness, tingling sensations and nausea.
Can BTX treatment be combined with other Face Body & Soul products and procedures?
At Face Body and Soul we use a combination of cosmetic products and or procedures with BTX therapy. Your Face Body & Soul doctor or consultant will advise you as to whether or not you will receive better results if your BTX treatment is combined with other products and or procedures.
These may include Light, Laser, Pixel and Radio frequency treatments, usually administered before BTX to ensure that your BTX treatment is in an already rejuvenated treatment area.
