Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Botulinum Toxin Type A is derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum – brand names include Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® - but there is no bacteria in it at all.  At Project Physique, we use Dysport® because of the great results it has to make the face look natural.
Please note that this page informs you of how Botulinum Toxin A (BTX) works and that prior to administration a consultation would be required with our trained Registered Nurse to determine suitability. We will discuss treatment options that will encompass the problems and specific areas of concern that you may have. 

BTX may not be the most appropriate treatment for the concerns that you may have and this will be discussed in depth at the consultation stage. Rest assured that we believe in natural looking face and not "frozen" face. A fresher looking face is what we aim for.


Treatable areas with Dysport® :

- Glabellar Lines (Frown)
- Crow’s Feet Line

What is Botulinum Toxin A and What Will it do?

Dysport® uses pharmaceutical grade, purified proteins that deliver very predictable results, accurately and with very few potential side effects.
BTX works by blocking neurotransmitters in the target muscles which reduces the strength of muscle contraction. This is help reduces or smooth out wrinkles caused by muscles folding the skin over and over again (eg. Crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead lines), causing crinkling the overlying skin. 

By injecting small amounts of this material, the muscle contraction is relaxed and the overlying skin smooths out.  This material can also be used for therapeutic applications, such as night-time tooth grinding, as it relaxes the overactive muscles of the face contributing to the problem.

Your treatment could involve aesthetic or therapeutic applications depending on your needs.  Treatment results will not start to take affect for 3-7 days and are temporary, lasting between 3-6 months before normal function returns completely.
