What is Botulinum Toxoid?
Botulinum toxin is a protein produced by bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It relaxes muscle by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles. Botox is a trade name of one of Botulinum toxin brand that one of the first brands introduced.
The cosmetic effect of Botulinum toxin was first documented as early as 1989. It is now regularly used by many, both male and female, as it is less intrusive and less artificial in appearance than the traditional form of treatment such as plastic surgery.
How Does The Treatment Work?
The eyebrow lift treatment works by relaxing the muscles above the delicate eye area that pull the browns down, resulting in enhancing the function of the muscle that lift the browns up. Additionally, it smooth away worry lines and deep grooves caused by frowning along the lower forehead. When the muscles around the tops of the eyebrows are relaxed, the skin appears smoother, more toned and the brows are lifted and youthful.
Who Can Benefit From The Treatment?
Anti wrinkle eyebrow lift treatment can be performed on all skin types, and may be particularly effective for people who have naturally drooping eyelids and low-hanging eyebrows. The brow lift literally ‘lifts’ the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows so that the natural eyebrow arch is a few millimeters higher. Patients who experience mild hooding are usually suitable candidates for the procedure.
What Does The Procedure Involve?
Prior to the treatment:
Your specialist doctor will medically examine you and make sure you are suitable for the procedure. Topical anesthetic or an ice pack may be applied to numb the area before the injection
A small amount of Botulinum toxin will be injected at the area between and around eyebrows to relax the muscle that pulls the eyebrows down. The result will gradually appear and final result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment
Post treatment :
Avoid touching, rubbing or applying make up on the treated areas for 4 hours. The procedure takes around 15 minutes to complete. Specific after care instructions will be given to you on the day of your treatment by our Clinic Coordinator
Am I Suitable For The Treatment?
Only you and your doctor can decide if the treatment is right for you and your concerns. During your medical consultation, Dr Targett will asses your medical history and make sure you are suitable for the treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

How Long Do The Treatments Last?
