If you’re looking for a treatment that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other facial concerns, then we recommend Botox – a safe treatment that prevents new lines from forming, and lessens the effects of current ones. But what exactly is Botox? How does it work? What other benefits does it offer? Well lovely readers, we recommend you check out this blog to find out…
What Is Botox?
Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is a purified protein that works by blocking nerve signals in muscles, when injected into them. This temporarily freezes the muscle, ensuring movement is minimised, softening current wrinkles and lines, and preventing future ones from forming.
Botox works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement, known as dynamic wrinkles, or ‘’expression lines’’. The most common dynamic wrinkles that Botox can treat include horizontal lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. These lines are typically caused by smiling, frowning and squinting, among other facial expressions. In contrast, Botox will not work on fine lines and wrinkles caused by sagging or loss of volume in the face. These are known as static wrinkles, and are better treated with dermal fillers to restore vitality and plumpness – another great treatment we offer.
As you can see below, our client has seen a marked improvement after her Botox treatment on her forehead:

Our Process – What Happens During A Botox Treatment?
- We will invite you in for a complimentary consultation with Doctor Nyla to discuss the areas you would like to treat, and the reasons for doing so. We will explain the treatment in detail, ensuring you fully understand the procedure.
- Should you wish to proceed following careful thought and consideration, we will then apply an optional numbing cream to reduce any possible discomfort, as well as disinfecting your skin for cleanliness.
- Doctor Nyla will use her specially-developed technique to administer a controlled amount of anti-wrinkle injection into the client using a small needle.
- The treatment usually takes no longer than 15 minutes, so is perfect for those with busy schedules and no time to waste.
- Results are fully formed within 2 weeks, and your beautiful face will have never looked better.
Depending on the clients, the effects of Botox will last approximately 3-6 months.

In her review of studies that consider the effects of anti-wrinkle injections on facial wrinkles, researcher Bagus Komang Satriyasa concludes that, ‘’Botox is a good safe medication in reducing facial wrinkles.’’ (Botulinum toxin (Botox) A for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles: a literature review of clinical use and pharmacological aspect; 2019).
