Aging lines and wrinkles on the upper face are the result of a multitude of aging factors. Loss of volume & repetitive muscle movements that occur with facial expressions such as frowning and squinting, are two common causes of line and wrinkle development. Aging fine lines can be distressing but they can be softened.
It maybe a frown line or crows feet that’s bothering you. If this is you, then the first step is to book for a consultation. Consultation allows you to express your concerns. During consultation, Louise the Aesthetic Nurse will gather information about your past medical history, listen to your concerns and perform a facial assessment. From here then you will be provided with treatment options specific for you, which you can take home and consider in your own time.
Why would anti wrinkle injections be recommended as a treatment option?
Anti wrinkle injections are commonly used to treat wrinkles in areas such as the: Frown, Crows & Forehead. Botulinum toxin may be used to cause muscle relaxation or dermal fillers may be injected to replace lost collagen.
One way to soften wrinkles is to inject small amounts of Botulinum toxin to relax muscle contraction. There are a number of trade names for Botulinum toxin, the most commonly known in the UK are BOCOUTURE™, BOTOX™ and AZZALURE™. Also known as just TOXIN which can be used to treat teeth grinding and excessive underarm sweating.
Dermal Fillers commonly known as hyaluronic acid (HA) can result in a subtle plumping effect. There are many available HA’s within the UK. People often know them as Belotero™ and Juverderm™.
Botox™, Bocouture™ and Azzalure™ are all prescription only medicines. Which should be prescribed by a qualified prescriber and administered by a qualified injector.

Most frequent questions and answers
There are several medications that can be used as an anti-wrinkle treatment. Botulinum toxin works by severing the nerve connection to the muscle, providing reduction in muscle movement and subsequently a softening of the lines.

Can my smile lines be softened with Botox™/Bocouture™?
Lines at the eye corner are often referred to as crow’s feet. Crows feet wrinkles can be softened by injecting anti-wrinkle medicine into the muscle that surrounds the eye. This treatment often lasts 3-4 months and is relatively painless. Extremely fine needles are used to directly treat the crows feet, and the procedure takes on average 20 minutes. The result is a relaxation of the muscle, so its contraction is much more relaxed and therefore a softening of the crow’s lines occurs.
What are these lines between my brow?
Frown lines are also often called “11’s”, because often many people develop double lines. This is not true for all people and often it can just be one wrinkle between the brows that causes you concern. This line formation is secondary to the group of muscles within the frown area (also known as Glabella). If anti-wrinkle treatment is performed then the medication once injected works directly on the appropriate muscle that is responsible for the frown. Therefore, the site of needle injection is into the frown and bilaterally to brows. Usually five antiwrinkle injection treatments are administered and this procedure takes approximately 20 mins. The results should be a relaxation of the muscle and softening of the frown wrinkles.
How does Bocouture™/ Botox™ treat my horizontal forehead lines?
Forehead lines which are usually horizontal can be a result of the active frontalis muscle which is pulling vertically from the brows up to the skull region. Wrinkles to the upper part of the face can often be hidden with a fringe. However, in some instances this is not the preferred option for the individual and the forehead wrinkles are extremely bothersome. This problem area is also suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment and as already mentioned this involves a number of fine needles to inject the medication to relax the muscle and softening the lines. This also takes approximately 20 mins and will last approximately 3-4 months.
What does the Bocouture™/Botox™ do to the nerve?
