Line Relaxing Injections - How does it work?

How does it work?

With expert injection of botulinum toxin in to specific muscle groups, communication between the nerve and the muscle is temporarily blocked.

The muscle relaxes and the dynamic lines created by its usual tone soften. As the effect wears off, communication opens and normal movement is restored.

Frequently Asked Questions


Botulinum Toxin is a protein derived from a bacteria in a laboratory. The resulting drug preparation is branded by the pharmaceutical company individually – Botox (R) Allergan, Dysport (R), Ipsen.


If you are older than 18 and in general good health you are a potential candidate for treatment. Suitability is only confirmed after a comprehensive consultation, examination and medical history with Rebecca.


Initial changes begin at 3 days and it can take up to 2 weeks for the desired result to become apparent.


After treatment you can continue your normal social and professional life immediately. Avoid facials or massage for 24 hours after treatment and alcohol should be drunk in moderation.


Results can vary between patients and between treatments but on average patients see beneficial effects of treatment for 3 months. A repeat treatment at that stage maintains the benefit.


Most side effects (headache, swelling) are mild and transient, Even though we use the smallest needles on the market, with any skin puncture small bruises can occur which are easily concealed.


It is advisable to plan any injectable treatment around your social calendar as bruising and swelling can occur. Different rates of binding in distinct muscle groups can lead to transient asymmetries before full effect is achieved. We prefer our patients to arrive with little or no make up to reduce the risk of infection.


Prices start at £200 but cost is dependent on the number of areas treated and the muscle bulk requiring treatment.
