Anti-wrinkle Injections (Botox)
Anti-wrinkle injections, such as Botox, relaxes muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The most common areas we treat are:
Frown Lines (between the eyes and forehead)
How does it work?
Facial expressions occur when the brain sends nerve signals to the muscle tissue in the face and the muscle contracts. This is what makes us frown. Over time the continuous action of frowning leaves the overlying skin wrinkled with lines and creases. Botulinum Toxin is a purified protein that blocks the signals that the brain sends to the muscles. This prevents the muscles from moving therefore as your facial expression changes your skin appears smoother, less wrinkled and younger.
What is the Treatment Procedure?
We only use Botox brand products which as prescription only. The medication is injected using a disposable micro needle. The solution is injected very precisely into the specific location on the face. The numbers of injection sites are dependent on what areas of the face require treatment.
Who is not suitable for treatment?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
Anyone with a history of anaphylactic shock
If laser treatment of chemical skin peels have been carried out 6 weeks prior

What are the Potential Side Effects?
Slight bruising or swelling to the injected area
Some discomfort upon pressure at the injection site
Potential discolouration at the injection site
There is a very small risk of infection at the injection site.
A rare side effect is drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids
Most potential side effects will resolve themselves after 3-8 days of the treatment. If they do not, you are advised to contact re:fresh Aesthetics.
How long does the treatment last?
The treatment itself will take around 30 minutes to be completed. The effects of the treatment will be clearly visible within 2 weeks and the effects last in the region of 3-6 months depending on skin condition and life style. There is a 2 week follow up appointment after every treatment.
