Smooth away lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin
What are Botulinum Toxin Injections?
At Immaculate Touch we take the time to consult and advise individually on the best approach for reducing wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections work by relaxing specific muscles, reducing lines and helping to prevent the creases that cause lines and wrinkles in the first place.
Why choose Botulinum Toxin Injections?
Wrinkles and ‘expression’ lines are a fact of life. However, we all age differently and may have specific or more problematic areas we would like to change. Botulinum Toxin Injections are perfect for smoothing away unwanted lines without the need for invasive surgery. Common areas helped by anti-wrinkle injections include: crow’s feet, laughter lines, frown lines, expression lines, ‘turkey’ neck.
Anti-wrinkle or anti ageing injections should last between 3 and 6 months. At this point lines will gradually reappear. Often they may not be as noticeable as before due to muscle shrinkage.
The first stage is to book a consultation with us at the Immaculate Touch clinic where we can listen to your goals and advise on your suitability for procedure. We are fully licensed and qualified, and all the products we use are approved and regulated.

When we frown or smile, the brain sends signals to activate the necessary muscles. Botulinum Toxin prevents this from happening. Over a two week period you will notice your skin gradually becoming smoother, at which point you can fully enjoy the benefits.
Anti-wrinkle injections give you a more youthful appearance without the need for invasive surgery.
