Anti wrinkle injections are by far the most popular aesthetic treatments available today.

Here at Smileworks we use Allergan Botox® to ease wrinkles and create a refreshed, alert and youthful look for our patients. Botox® is a product that is dependable, effective and reliable in the hands of an expert injector. Not everybody is suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment and you must come along for a consultation where we will discuss possible outcomes and how this wonderful treatment can make you look and feel years younger in just a few days.
Botox® is the brand name for Botulinum Type-A, a naturally occurring toxin that is safely injected into the muscles to cause them to relax. This softens wrinkles and deep lines leaving you looking refreshed and rejuvenated. If you have very deep wrinkles then you might be also interested in dermal fillers. Our anti-wrinkle treatments are also popular amongst patients who also come for lip fillers.
This treatment works by targeting the root causes of wrinkles in the skin. In everyday life we make facial expressions and in young individuals the skin has elasticity and contains lots of collagen so wrinkles usually don’t form. As we get a little older and collagen begins to deplete, the skin loses it’s elasticity and hydration. This means that individuals notice lines and wrinkles forming first when they make certain facial expressions.
Then over time these wrinkles and lines become a permanent feature of the face and give the appearance of an aged complexion. Targeted Botulinum treatments can relax some of the muscles of facial expression and cause these lines to soften and disappear over time. It’s sometimes difficult to understand how the process works but it is tried and tested on literally millions of patients the world over who choose to come back time and time again for the wonderful age-reversing properties of Botox®
Here’s the treatment results you can expect from your anti-wrinkle treatments from Allergan, the makers of Botox®. We have clinical images that you can see although botox before and after images just look like someone frowning and then not frowning so are pretty unhelpful! But trust us, 11 million people can’t be wrong! To see dozens of testimonials from our patients check below on this page.
One of the most amazing properties of Botulinum treatment is it’s dual effect on the face. Firstly, the muscles of facial expression will be slightly relaxed and this means you will not make the expressions that cause wrinkles to form. This doesn’t mean that your face will be ‘frozen’ far from it. A competent and careful practitioner can create a situation where you’re able to make all the normal expressions but just not the ones that cause you to form wrinkles and look older.
You may notice that wrinkles form when you make certain surprised or frowning expressions but then disappear when your face is t rest. These are called ‘dynamic lines’ and are common in younger individuals. However as we get older, these lines begin to literally become drawn onto the face and become ‘static lines’ which means they are always there. This can have a dramatic ageing effect on a person and make you feel older and tired-looking. The wonderful thing about treatment with Botulinum Type-A is that the dynamic and the static lines will disappear, causing you to look much younger. What’s more, the effect is permanent so long as you continue your Botox® cosmetic treatments every 4-6 months.
Many patents ask ‘what happens if I miss an appointment’ as though they will suddenly look 20 years older! This is not possible. Think about Botox® treatment as simply stopping the wrinkles forming. If you stop treatment they will gradually return to the way they were before, the fact that you may have aged a few years will not be apparent.
If you’re anything like us here at Smileworks, you’ve used every single over the counter anti-wrinkle treatment in the world! Unfortunately none of them work and although the cosmetic industry is great at packaging up expensive crèmes and lotions, they have little or no permanent effects.
Botulinum is different. It doesn’t reduce the appearance of wrinkles it actually reduces wrinkles. Not only this, it reduces the deep static lines that you may have developed with age leaving you looking noticeably years younger. The results are real and the results are noticeable. You’ll be sure to get lots of people telling you how young you look and are free to blame it on cosmetic skin cremes if you want to!
You will notice results after a few days as the Botox® takes time to work on the target muscles. Then the results will last between 4-6 months for your first treatment and 3-4 months for subsequent treatments. Patients are encouraged to come for a review appointment to see how the product has taken effect and to perfect the look you want.

Like with any medical procedure, treatment with botulinum toxins carry certain risks of adverse events and complications. The most common are tiny bruises from the injections and swelling in the treated area. Following your treatment you will have tiny lumps where the Botulinum and saline is present in the tissue. These will resolve in 10-30 minutes. You may get small blue bruises that will resolve after a few days. Then there are more rare complications that are typically caused by poor injection technique or cross-infection protocols not being followed. Some patients come to Smileworks having been to salons and ‘mobile’ Botox® providers with swelling, bruises and uneven results.
A ‘frozen face’ is an adverse reaction to Botulinum toxin and poorly trained practitioners will cause this in their patients. Patients also come in with droopy eyes having been treated by amateur injectors at other practices. Unfortunately a droopy lid or ‘ptosis’ is not immediately reversible and patients will be stuck with it for 6-9 months. This type of complication does not happen at Smileworks because we are the best at what we do and carefully treat our patients. However, if you have a Ptosis, there are ways we can alleviate the problem if you come in for a consultation.
Here are the most commonly asked questions from our first time Botox® patients and even people who have been coming to us for years.
