Last 4-6 months
Its used in the medical aesthetic industry to relax small muscles around the face, neck hands feet and underarms to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or help with hyperhydrosis (sweaty underarms, hands and feet) it’s also used in the muscles spanning the head to help with tension headaches. It’s injected using a series of very fine injections into the required muscles.
The main muscles that most clinicians will target are the upper face muscles. These are:
As we age our skin loses it’s elasticity and has a wrinkled appearance especially so on tightening of these muscles every time we use them during our day to day facial expressions. Btx is used to relax these muscles allowing the skin to smooth over the muscle and so reducing the appearance of wrinkled skin. Btx is a non permanent method of reducing the signs of ageing. Typically lasting between 3-6 months maybe more or less.
This is provided by advanced trained clinicians who are able to manipulate the muscles in the face.
Advanced clinicians, such as Ros, will target other areas of the face such as nose, lips cheeks, chin and neck to reduce wrinkles and provide the appeared of lift.
It is used in conjunction with fillers can contribute to a non permanent face lift.
Excessive sweating of the hands feet and and underarms can be controlled by paralysing the muscles supplying the sweat glands.
As with any treatment involving compromising the skin and muscles there is a risk that the treatment falls short of patients and sometimes clinicians expectations. It’s rarely to do with technique but more often on an individual response basis. Some obvious complications are mild bleeding, bruising and rarely infection. Some patient centred conditions, such as an autoimmune disease, will contraindicate treatment for that patients. Additionally, pregnancy, breast feeding, active local infection, and previous hypersensitivity are all contraindicated.
Typical Areas are forehead, crows feet and between the brows.

“Two of us had treatment for wrinkles in order to freshen up our faces. I initially went and my daughter was so impressed that we arranged a second appointment for her within the same month. It was the first time for my daughter but I have previously had treatment at alternative clinics. We are both very pleased with the results. This review is somewhat overdue as we both were treated in November 2015. This has given us time to inspect and ensure that the results have been excellent. We would both highly recommend. Very reasonable pricing (which always helps!)
We chose this clinic initially due to location and also due to great reviews. The clinic was very clean and well presented. Dr. Ros was really lovely – friendly, professional and very down to earth. We both felt as though we had known her for years. Everything was well explained in detail and we felt safe in her hands. If you haven’t had any treatment of this sort before or have and are unhappy with the outcome then look no further – Dr. Ros is sure to impress. We will definitely be returning for more!!! Thank you Dr. Ros.”
