    Do you look in the mirror and wish for a natural-looking reduction in fine lines and wrinkles? Or Maybe a softer and brighter appearance?

    Botulinum Toxin is injected with gently with a fine needle, takes only a few minutes to administer, and has little to no downtime. 

    Results are visible within 3-10 days, and effects last 3-4 months on average. 

    The most requested areas for anti-wrinkle injections are the dynamic lines around the eyes and forehead. However, they can also be used to minimise the lines around the mouth, nose, smooth the chin, relax the jawline, and neck bands and add life and lift to the brow.

    Treatment Indication

    • Soften expression lines – Create a natural-looking reduction in expression lines such as smile lines and crow’s feet.
    • Restore facial balance – When professionally administered, anti-wrinkle injections can restore balance to the face.
    • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles – By relaxing the muscle, anti-wrinkle injections reduce fine lines and wrinkles and prevent future lines from deepening.
    • Treats Excessive Sweating also known as hyperhidrosis.
    • Treats Bruxism – Teeth Grinding and Clenching.
    • Calf reduction – for slimmer legs

    Treatment Details

    How it works

    Botulinum toxin (anti-wrinkle) injections can achieve a tighter, smoother appearance.
    Botulinum toxin injections block the chemical signal that the brain sends to the muscle telling the muscle to contract. This means that when the brain says ‘squint, it’s sunny’, the muscles are saying ‘I can’t hear you’. In effect the treatment relaxes and lifts the muscle, softening the look of lines and giving a tighter, smoother appearance.

    Treatments take effect after 3 to 10 days. Top-ups can be performed if needed.

    The effect generally lasts three to four months.

    Excessive Sweating / Hyper Hydrosis

    Excessive sweating (medically known as hyperhidrosis) is a common condition affecting the hands, underarms and feet, as well as other body areas in certain instances (e.g., buttocks or face). 
    Botox is a highly effective treatment that chemically disables the sweat glands without causing permanent damage. 
    Results are visible at 3-7 days after injection, and last 6-12 months on average. 
    100units are required on average for the underarm area
    100units – 200units are required on average for the hands or the feet:
    •    hands; 
    •    feet. 
    Underarms are minimally painful. 
    Hands and feet require local anaesthetic cream, and in some cases, a nerve block, to minimise discomfort.

    Bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching)

    Bruxism is the medical term for unconscious teeth clenching and grinding, either while awake or asleep. Chronic teeth grinding can cause headaches and dental problems. 

    Hypertrophy of the masseter muscle, which may lead to the appearance of a square, masculine jaw, is another side effect of bruxism. 

    Treatments with Botulinum Toxin injections can provide tremendous relief from jaw soreness, headaches, and other unpleasant problems associated with Bruxism. 

    By injecting small doses of Botulinum Toxin directly into the masseter muscle (the large muscle that moves the jaw), the muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding.

    Voluntary movements are not affected. Although botulinum toxin type A injections are not a cure for bruxism, they can effectively control the uncomfortable symptoms better than a dental plate for some patients and typically lasts for 3 – 4 months.

    What Is Botulinum Toxin A?

    Botulinum neurotoxin A injection is a simple and very effective treatment for the temporary improvement in the appearance of frown lines (glabellar lines), reducing wrinkles through the transitory and reversible paralysis of treated muscles.

    What Can I Expect?

    The resultant effect, after a few days to a week, is a relaxing of the treated area and a reduction in the appearance of the wrinkles.  Wrinkles caused by sun or other environmental exposure will not respond well to botulinum toxin treatment. Treatment is administered via injection, with minimal pain.

    How many treatments will I need?

    Dr Claire Jacobsohn will prepare and administer the injection and decide where to make the injections, how much you need and when to repeat them.  There should be a minimum interval of 12 weeks between treatments.
