Eye Lines & Wrinkles

Eye Lines and Wrinkles are one of the most common concerns for both women and men, with one of the most popular treatments involving the use of muscle relaxant products which are injected around the eye area to improve lines and wrinkle around the eyes and also to open-up the eye area, also improving heavy eye lids.


There are a range of different non-surgical treatments that are designed to address eye line and wrinkles. We offer a range of different treatment options, which includes the use of muscle relaxant products that  are injected into the areas of concern. This treatment uses a small number of extremely fine needles to inject a tiny volume of the product. The discomfort experienced is minimal, and a cold pack can be used to reduce discomfort if necessary. The procedure takes only a few minutes and typically requires two to three days to begin relaxing the treated areas and reducing facial lines. The maximum effect of the products can be seen one to two weeks post-treatment.


Eye lines and wrinkles are primarily formed through the repetitive contraction of the muscles around the eyes and other surrounding muscles. We use products that inhibit the neurotransmitters, thereby preventing the eye muscles from contracting which will result in a visible reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet.


Generally, after the first few sessions, the results last around two to three months. However, after regular treatments, the results can last longer because the treated muscles have been retrained.

If you cease the treatments, your muscles will return to normal, and your wrinkles will return to their previous state—they do not become worse.


Normal activities can be resumed soon after your treatment. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise or massaging the area for the first 24 hours after treatment.


Every non-surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated. Majority of patients do not experience the following, but you should discuss each with your physician to ensure you understand.   

Common side effects may occur immediately or may be delayed.    

Pain, burning, stinging, bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site; local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids or eyebrows; swollen eyelids, skin tightness, itching or aching forehead, headaches, nausea and/or flu like symptoms.                                                                   

Although exceedingly rare, in some cases the effect of the product may be observed beyond the site of injection and the following symptoms may occur – loss of strength and muscle weakness, drooping of upper eyelid, double or blurred vision, trouble speaking, constipation, aspiration and trouble swallowing.  These symptoms can happen hours to weeks after injection and are more likely to occur in patients treated with high doses or who have underlying conditions that would predispose to the above.


The following are very common side effects after treatment and should resolve with time.  

  • Swelling at puncture sites   
  • Bruising 
  • Redness at puncture sites  
  • Tenderness   
  • Tightness  
  • You may experience a mild headache; Paracetamol may be taken if required.
