What is a Fine Line Removal?
Fine line removal has been used by the medical profession for many years in the treatment of muscle spasm, eyelid and facial deviation.
How can it make me look younger?
We associate ageing with the development and deepening of wrinkles and furrows in the skin. These lines may develop as a result of weakened dermal collagen from sun exposure, gravity, or due to the action of certain from muscles underneath the skin. Having this done can give you an extreme makeover and it's a completely non-surgical cosmetics.
Fine Line Removal can be used to reversibly freeze and relax these muscles. By relaxing these muscles the appearance of frown lines, smile lines and the wrinkles in the skin decrease making you look younger again.

Where does it work best?
The areas where Fine Line Removal treatment is most effective and those areas where the muscles don’t have an important function the most commonly treated areas are crow's feet, the furrows on the forehead and smile lines.
Does it work straight away?
Injections can take up to 21 days to show. In most cases, good results are usually obtained after a single injection. Sometimes in patients with very active facial muscles, a second injection is necessary 4 weeks later.
How Long Does the Effect Last?
Patients can expect to have a result that lasts between 3 to 6 months.
Do the Injections Hurt?
Most patients report a mild discomfort at and shortly after the injections.
How Will I look After Treatment?
For 24 to 48 hours following the injections, there is usually mild swelling. This can be reduced through the application of ice packs.
Are there any side effects?
When given by a professional the complications are rare. On occasion some patients experience a temporary drooping of the eyelid, this normally lasts no longer than a few weeks. Other side effects include a temporary numbness at the area of injection. In very unusual circumstances patients can develop antibodies to the botulinum toxin. In one study looking at the percentage of patients experiencing problems, it was found that less than 4% experienced any of the above complications. Other side effects include mild bruising. Patients who are breast feeding or pregnant should not have Fine Line Removal treatment
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Just like some other plastic surgery Glasgow treatments, repeat treatments are usually needed every 3-4 months. Clinical trials report that some patients who have had treatment over 12 months are requiring further treatment only twice a year. Please note that it takes up to 21 days for the Botulinum Toxin to work. Increased use of the treated muscles for 2 hrs after injection will help speed up the onset of the effect.
