If you want to reduce the lines on your face without having to resort to surgical procedures, the good news is that facial rejuvenation techniques can soften wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
The benefit of having this treatment done by our doctor, Dr Tina Peers, is that she has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy and can perform this delicate work in a precise manner. Tina uses botulinum toxin type A, which she injects via a fine needle into the skin; this relaxes tiny facial muscles in the area, leaving the skin looking smoother.
Areas on the face that can be treated include frown lines (vertical lines that form between the eyebrows), crows’ feet, forehead lines and lines around the mouth and top lip.
The botulinum injection is quick, and because Tina uses a very fine needle you are unlikely to experience any pain; however, she can offer you topical local anaesthetic if you are concerned about the treatment.
Results will usually be seen in a few days, sometimes taking between four to seven days for the effects to be seen. The effects can last for three to four months, depending on your individual response to this treatment. You can book a series of treatments to achieve optimum and maintained results.
