Cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatments are now being performed by Dr Lisa Neligan at Kingsbridge Private Hospital, located on the Lisburn Road, Belfast. 

Many questions are frequently asked about anti-wrinkle injections:


  • Why does skin age?  Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.


  • What is Botox? BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) for a short period of time (temporary).


  • Is the procedure painful? Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anaesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.


  • When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?  Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months.


  • Will I still be able to make facial expressions?  Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you have ‘had work done’. The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.


  • What will happen to the frown lines between my brows if I choose not to continue treatments?  If you do not continue treatments, the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment.


  • Do treatment results differ? Yes, individual results may vary. To get the best results, it's important to go to an experienced doctor.
