Wrinkle Reduction

Facial lines are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. As the skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated contraction of the facial muscle may cause visible lines and wrinkles, even when the muscles are at rest.

When small doses of Bocouture are injected into the skin, it blocks the nerve signals that supply the muscle. The muscle contraction is reduced, which means the upper facial lines will soften and appear less noticeable.

Bocouture can be used to improve the following areas:

  • 'Glabellar' frown lines
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow's feet lines
  • 'Smokers' lip lines
  • 'Bunny' nose lines
  • Drooping corners of the mouth

For the first treatment we prefer to under treat to assess how much you need, as everyone is different, and add more if necessary at the review, appointment two weeks later. People may start to see an effect from two or three days, reaching a peak at two weeks. The effect of Bocouture on the injected muscles may last four to six months after the treatment, and will gradually wear off. Repeat treatments will be needed to maintain the effect.
