Active Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by muscle contraction every time you smile or frown. The more expressive you are, the deeper or more numerous, these wrinkles are likely to be.
What is BOTOX®?
Botulinum toxin (BOTOX®) is a purified protein, which acts as a muscle relaxant for your face or forehead and causes temporary relaxation of your facial muscles so that when you frown or smile, the treated muscles stay relaxed and the skin over the muscle no longer wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin works best on wrinkles that are not yet very deep. The possibility of new or increased lines appearing in the future is minimised It is clinically accepted that botox treatment is extremely safe, effective and requires no down time.
Where can BOTOX® be used?
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Horizontal lines on the forehead
- Crows’ feet
- Lower Face
- Nasal ‘bunny’ lines
- Gummy smile
How long does BOTOX® last?
The botox procedure consists of a few injections in the target area using acupuncture-like needles. It takes only few minutes, little discomfort and no down time.
The botox treatment will gradually wear off after 8-16 weeks. If the face is re-treated as soon as the muscles start to move, the facial muscles never regain their “memory”. After a number of re-treatments the interval between treatments is longer.
Side effects of BOTOX®
Very rarely patients may notice a slight short-term asymmetry between eyebrows. This is rectified a couple of weeks after the treatment with a ‘touch-up’ botox treatment. You may get a slight bruise at the injection site and rarely headache is reported. Please report any side effects immediately.

As we age, our skin loses it elasticity and plumpness, as its major constituents: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid become less abundant.
Dermal fillers are used to replace the loss of these elements in the skin. Here at Crown Street we can help you in your battle against aging, and provide you with dermal filler treatments which are used to treat against anti-ageing and wrinkles and for lip and cheek enhancement and brow lifts.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are non-surgical, soft tissue fillers injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. They are also used to plump or fill areas to enhance, such as lips and brows.
What are Dermal Fillers used for?
- Softening and erasing lines and wrinkles
- Lip enhancement and definition
- Nose to mouth lines
- Mouth corners
