Improve the look of moderate or severe frown lines between the brows.
Botox injections are prescription medicines for injecting into muscles to improve the look of moderate or severe frown lines between the brows, and can also be used "off-label" to treat forehead lines and "crows feet" around the eyes. These treatments are available at our clinic in Reading, Berkshire and are carried out by experienced nurses.
How do wrinkle reduction injectables work?
At Aspire Clinic we use Botox (botulinum toxin) injections to block the nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces the muscle activity that causes lines to form in the first place. The effect lasts for around 3-4 months.
Wrinkle relaxing injections cause facial muscles that are related to expression lines to relax, leaving the overlying skin looking smooth and less wrinkled. The treatment takes about twenty minutes and results can be seen after a few days with full effect achieved within two weeks.

What to expect
Immediately after the treatment you may notice some slight redness and swelling but this tends to be minimal.
Your practitioner will advise you about your post-treatment care and will give you an advice leaflet to take home with you.
Your treatment will achieve a natural-looking, relaxed, and more youthful appearance which will last four to six months.
Which areas are suitable?
Botox injections are commonly used to smooth areas in the upper part of the face such as frown lines between the eyes (glabella lines), forehead lines, lines around the eyes (known as crows feet) and to redefine the jawline and soften neck wrinkles (Nefertiti Lift).
Wrinkle relaxing injections have been part of a major revolution in anti-ageing treatments, becoming one of the most popular treatments available today.
The 'Nefertiti Lift’ is an anti-ageing treatment named after Queen Nefertiti - an Egyptian royal famed for her smooth neck and striking jaw shape.
The Nefertiti Lift uses Botox injections to redefine the jawline and soften lines on the neck for a smoother, tighter, more contoured appearance without surgery. It increases elasticity and reduces the effects of ageing.
