Anti-wrinkle injections provide an effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, using a protein called Botulinum Toxin of which BOTOX® is a trade name of a product made by Allergan.
It is a safe, quick and reliable solution for fine lines and wrinkles with virtually no downtime. Static wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear when the face is at rest are best to be improved with soft tissue fillers rather than Botulinum Toxin.

There are typically three main areas which are treated with Botulinum Toxin:
Frown lines (Glabella lines) is one of the most common areas to be treated. Frown wrinkles are vertical lines and can signal emotions such as anger, anxiety or fear. They are vertical lines that can be successfully treated with Botulinum Toxin.
Horizontal lines that appear between the eyebrows and hairline are formed during facial expressions to convey emotions such as surprise or empathy. These lines can easily be targeted with anti-wrinkle injections.
Crow’s feet or laughter lines as they are most commonly known are in the outer corner of the eyes and are more prominent when laughing or smiling.
We can also use Botulinum Toxin to create an eyebrow lift, to stop the corners of the mouth from pulling down, to reduce gummy smiles and neck bands. They reduce muscle bulk to slim jaw lines and can also help with a ‘pebbly’ appearance of the chin.
At Regent Street Clinic Dubai, we offer a free consultation where we will be able to examine your areas of concern and advise on the best treatment for you. Wrinkle relaxing injections are proven to be safe and effective. You will be provided with detailed consent and medical history forms which you will be asked to read and sign before treatment. Our doctors will be happy to answer any further questions you may have.
The results of the treatment begin to appear from day 4-14. Botulinum Toxin usually lasts roughly 3-4 months; however, the effects can last up to six months in some people. Repeated treatments progressively weaken the targeted muscles and can lead to more prolonged duration and less frequent treatments.
The Doctor will inject small amounts of Botulinum Toxin to the targeted muscles using an ultra-fine needle to ensure very little discomfort.
You can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment. It is best to avoid exercise for 48 hours after the treatment, and the area should not be massaged for the first two days. Botulinum Toxin injections cannot be administered to under 18’s and the treatment is not permitted to anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.
You are advised to attend for a review 2-3 weeks after your first treatment, follow ups are generally not needed for subsequent treatments.
