Muscle relaxing injections are one of the most popular non-surgical treatments available in the UK. Fast, safe and versatile, wrinkle smoothing treatments like Botox can be used to soften the lines around the forehead and eyes. At Elixir Cosmetics we are proud to offer Botox as part of facial rejuvenation treatments. Muscle relaxing injections can be used to improve and rejuvenate areas of the face, as well as prevent excessive sweating. This anti ageing treatment is simple and quick to perform and the results last for months. Often simply referred to as Botox, this is actually a product name but is used to describe anti-wrinkle treatments. Contact us to hear more and learn about our competitive pricing.
Botox is a product used in anti wrinkle treatments. The treatment temporarily relaxes the muscles to give you a fresher, brighter and more relaxed appearance. Wrinkles become smoother and often disappear altogether. Wrinkle relaxing injections are the most effective treatment for smoothing out dynamic wrinkles (lines which appear when you frown, smile or laugh). Common sites are between the brows, across the forehead and at the corners of the eyes. At Elixir Cosmetics in London we use Botox as this product is the most effective in smoothing signs of facial ageing.

This skin rejuvenation treatment is most commonly used as a form of anti ageing treatment but can also be used to stop excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis. Botox immobilises the muscles and stops them from contracting, while untreated facial muscles continue to contract in the normal way so that facial expressions are unaffected. The goal is to soften dynamic lines and wrinkles to refresh and rejuvenate the face. The injections create a more youthful appearance by preventing new lines from forming, and softening the appearance of existing lines. If you wish to fill existing lines you may wish to consider dermal fillers as an alternative.
This depends on what you’re looking to achieve with Botox. Some patients just hope to reduce wrinkles in the forehead, whereas others wish to lift the lower face. The Nefertiti neck lift, for example, involves placing multiple injections of Botox along the lower jawline as well as down the side of the neck along the platysma muscle it is possible to improve the definition of the jawline, rebalance the underlying muscles and provide ‘lifting’ in the neck and jaw area. A well-defined jawline with a long neck has been a sign of beauty since the time of the Egyptians. This new procedure creates a toned, smooth neck, and lifted jawline and was named after Queen Nefertiti, whose bone structure continues to be admired in modern times.
This type of skin rejuvenation treatment is entirely non surgical and non invasive, and patients are treated as out-patients. Before treatment the areas of skin to be injected are cleaned before a topical anesthetic is applied to ensure the treatment is comfortable. Your anti ageing expert will then inject the muscle relaxing injection into the areas its required. Treatment with Botox takes around 15-30 minutes on average. Some initial results can be seen immediately although the long term results of wrinkle relaxing injections are seen in the days and weeks afterwards.
Botox involves a muscle relaxant being injected into a muscle in a certain area of the face. While any treatment involving injections will provide a certain level of discomfort, the needles used for Botox treatments are ultra-fine and so the pain is usually minimal. Topical anesthetic creams or cold packs can also be used to minimise any pain, but in general, the treatment should not be too uncomfortable. You can always discuss any concerns or discomfort with the administrating doctor, so whether you are feeling any pain, or you are just afraid of needles, we will do our best to make sure you are comfortable.
It’s quick and simple and you can return to work immediately. There may be some slight bruising or redness to the areas of treatment straight after, but this usually only lasts a few hours. It’s important to follow any aftercare guidance you are given post-treatment.
