Wrinkle Relaxing Injections - Forehead lines using Botox®


What are wrinkle relaxing injections for the wrinkles/lines on the Forehead?

These are Botox injections which help in relaxing muscles on the forehead to reduce the horizontal lines and wrinkles.


What does the procedure entail for treatment of the Forehead wrinkles?

Following a discussion with the Doctor about your aims and requirements, the Doctor will cleanse the forehead using an antiseptic solution. The doctor will then inject a small amount of Botox into the skin of the forehead using a fine needle and technique to minimise any discomfort.


Will it be painful?

As the needle is extremely fine there will be minimal pain throughout the procedure and the area is usually numbed with a cream and some ice. If you are needle-phobic then you can discuss this with the doctor for further reassurance.


How long will it take to complete the treatment?

The whole consultation and treatment shouldn't take longer than 10-15 minutes.


How long before I see the effects?

It will take on average between 3-7 days for the Botox to start showing an effect around the eyes and upto 2 weeks to reach its potential. We always advise to come back for your follow up appointment in case you require a free top-up.


How long do the effects of Botox (Wrinkle Relaxing Injections) last?

This can vary from person to person however on average we have noted that it lasts around 4 months. We do usually give a range between 3-6 months as an indicator.


How will I look after the Botox injections into the frown?

Many people worry about this but for your reassurance, the most common scenario is that you will notice some very mild swelling and redness at the injection points on the forehead which will settle down within the 45 minutes post-treatment. Most people return straight back to work after having the Botox injections.


If I have a wedding or important event, how long before should I allow before having any treatment?

At Dermadoc we always advise to have your treatment 2 weeks before your major event so that you allow enough time for the Botox to start working.


Can I travel or fly after the treatment?

Yes you can travel and fly straight after the treatment.


Are there any side effects?

Common side effects can be temporary redness and swelling which usually settles within minutes post-procedure. Others can include temporary headache, bruising and slight discomfort at the injection points.Other uncommon side effects can be discussed with your doctor and for your reassurance are extremely rare.


Who will be doing my treatment?

Your treatment will be carried out by Dr Tukmachi (a UK medical graduate and specialist in cosmetic medicine) or a doctor from his team.


How much will my treatment cost?

Treatment of the forehead area is usually considered as 1 area at the cost of £150. However it is advised to have both frown and forehead lines treated together to give an optimum result. You can discuss this with the Doctor.
