Ageing leaves a lifetime of experiences etched onto our skin. A few laughter lines help remind us of happy times, unfortunately it’s the wrinkles that become deeper and permanent that can leave you looking tired.

Dr Claire Oliver recommends Botulinum, one of only 4 FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approved products ensuring her clients achieve a safe, natural and fresh appearance. With pin point precision she treats the area reducing the movement of certain muscles by gentling relaxing them. In return the skin is allowed to recover and soften.

More information about this treatment

The upper third of the face responds extremely well to muscle relaxing treatment Anti-Wrinkle Injections.

This treatment involves the use of tiny amounts of a purified BTX protein, which has been used in many aspects of medicine for over 20 years. It is a prescription only medicine, which can only be prescribed by a doctor, dentist or nurse prescriber.

The injections prevents the muscle from contracting allowing the skin to recover and soften. The wrinkle relaxing injections are very specific and only reduce the movement of targeted muscles not affecting untreated muscles so allowing a natural range of facial expression.

The procedure takes approximately ten minutes and using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of BTX is injected into several areas of the face. Discomfort is very minimal and you can resume normal activities immediately afterwards. These treatments are temporary lasting between three to five months; repeat of the treatment would then be required to maintain and improve results.
