Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections (Botulinum Toxin A) commonly referred to as “Botox” are used to reduce overactive muscle movement which can cause deep frown lines and worry lines across the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes in both men and women. This treatment will not dramatically change your facial appearance, but reducing wrinkles will result in a smoother, rejuvenated appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to help reduce excess sweating, medically known as Hyperhidrosis and recently has been proven to help migraine.

These injections are performed ONLY by Dr Sally-Ann Dolan or Dr Ian R Jones.
