What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections use the toxin ‘botulinum toxin type A’ which is injected in small doses just under the skin. It works to temporarily reduce muscle contraction and as a result, the overlying skin looks smooth, fresh and natural. Because muscle contraction is reduced, new wrinkles are prevented from forming.
How is the treatment performed?
The procedure is performed by a series of small injections into the treatment areas. Discomfort is minimal and is tolerated very well.
How long does it take to work?
You will start to see results in as little as 3 days, with full effect at 10-14 days. Depending on the area treated and how much solution is used, results will last for 3-6 months.
Which products are used?

How many units do you need?
Each person is different in how much of the product they need. Also, ‘Solution B’ and ‘Solution D’ require different volumes. Dr Lindsay uses Solution D at a 3:1 ration to solution B. All units and charges are quoted as per Solution B.
On average you need: 14 – 20 units to treat the eyes, 20-25 for the frown and 7-15 units for the forehead.
- Eyes = 14 – 20 units (total for both sides)
- Frown = 15-25 units
- Forehead = 7-15 units
- Gummy smile = 10-15 units
- Sides of mouth and chin = 10-20 units
- Neck = 4-8 units
- Underarms (for hyperhidrosis) = 100 units (total for both sides)
Men may require more units than ladies.
