Botulinum Toxin

We know that when you look in the mirror, you may notice aspects of your appearance that you don’t like. Lines and wrinkles on the upper face, from crow’s feet to frown lines, are an inevitable part of ageing. Often you don’t notice them until you see a photograph of yourself from a few years back and compare that to what you see looking back at you from the mirror – you can be left wondering where these lines and creases have suddenly appeared from.

But there’s no need to panic. At Castle Hill we can help your face to fight the ageing process with fast, practically painless and non-invasive treatment using injections of Botox. This treatment is most effective for the brow, forehead and upper face, although there are some signs of ageing in the lower face where it can also be helpful. For loss of volume in the cheeks, chin and lower face we also offer dermal fillers.

Crow’s feet, frown lines and other creases and wrinkles on the upper face occur naturally over time as the skin loses some of its elasticity. As well as fighting a constant battle with gravity, skin loses some of its natural collagen as we get older. Add in muscle memory, where the muscles that control facial expressions learn default settings that they always return to over time, creating stress or ‘frown’ lines, and it can feel like a never-ending battle.

Botulinum Toxin is the ideal solution to help you battle these signs of ageing and can leave you looking much younger. It is an entirely safe treatment with a clear liquid derived from the naturally occurring botulinum type A bacteria and has been used in non-surgical facial rejuvenation for many years. Botulinum is a muscle relaxant, which helps address the problem of muscle memory. It is injected by our fully-qualified practitioner using a fine needle and makes the muscles that cause lines, wrinkles and creases to relax, leaving the skin with a much smoother appearance.

For the lower face, Botulinum Toxin can work wonders on lines around the lips and nose, jaws and chin, and can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers. For a no-obligation consultation on how Botulinum Toxin can help you look as young as you feel, please get in touch with the Castle Hill team.
