Botulinum Toxin Therapy – commonly known as Botox, is used to treat facial lines by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle action is reduced which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
In 1992 Dr. Nick Lowe was one of three original researchers who pioneered Botox treatment for reducing facial frown lines and crows feet eye lines, and later also for brow lifting, reduced jowls and neck rejuvenation. With these treatments having been available at Cranley Clinic since that time, there is no more experienced clinic in the country.
At Cranley Clinic we believe that ‘best Botox’ is a rested, youthful but natural look.
For facial lines, Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles and can take up to 14 days to take full effect. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Results can last between three to five months. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.
