Wrinkle Relaxers

What does it do?

Botox has become a term most of us are now familiar with. A main stay in cosmetic treatments and in general the first step for people new to advanced skin care. A combination of science and art is essential to achieve the perfect result.

Botulinum toxin provides safe and effective results when injected correctly by a skilled health care provider.

It has been used across many medical specialties since the 1970s. At Rae only premium EMA/FDA approved products are used so you can be assured of the highest standard of care.

Is it for you?

Botulimium toxin is most utilized in the upper face to soften muscle tone and reduce dynamic lines while lightening static lines. Frown lines, crows’ feet and horizontal forehead lines will generally be what people seek treatment for first. Do you notice your make up is no longer flawless? It’s beginning to sink into these lines. Then this can be the time to start. Don’t worry if the lines are already there, this can be added to combination treatments to soften and eventually eliminate unwanted lines.

The idea behind this treatment is to make you look fresh without looking frozen. Our aim is always to enhance your appearance without changing it. The Lower Face: Toxin can also be used to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile, downturned mouth, dimpled chin, and neck bands. A common misconception is that the forehead alone must be treated. At Rae we take a more holistic approach and will assess the face and neck to ensure you get the best results from your treatment. Our booking strategy reflects this by charging by units used and not area to allow for a more tailored approach.

What can I expect my appointment?

As with all treatments at Rae, consultation is key. Your concerns will be discussed to ensure this is the right treatment for you. Your goals and expectations are at the forefront of our principles. Once you are happy to proceed the muscles will be assessed and areas for injection highlighted. The treatment itself is quick and painless. A very fine needle is used for your comfort and the neurotoxin is injected into a few points in each muscle. It takes 4-5 days to begin to see the effects and 10 days for it to peak. The results will soften gradually over the following months.

How often will I need it?

This is very personal and will be tailored to your needs. The toxin reaches its peak at 10 days. It begins to wear off slowly at 4 weeks and is completely broken down at 12 weeks. The effects can last longer. On average most individuals have toxin every 4 to 6 months.
