By reducing the movement of muscles in the chosen areas, the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover. As a result the lines become much less noticeable or even fade away. There are a few different products that can be used for a ‘Botox’ treatment, for example: Botox (Allergan), Dysport, Azzalure or Xeomin. As prescription drugs, they need to be prescribed by a Doctor and can not be administered by anyone other than a Doctor or Dentist in Ireland.
If you are tired of sampling all the different anti-wrinkle creams and serums – this is the treatment for you. Not sure if you’re a suitable candidate – don’t worry! Consultation with Dr Richard Downey is always free.
Dr Richard is registered with the Irish Medical Council and is performing Anti Wrinkle Injections treatments in our Malahide Clinic for the last 3 years.
Common areas to be treated are (each considered as 1 area):
The horizontal lines running across the forehead are called “worry lines” as they make you look unhappy and worried when you’re really not! Depending on your prefference Dr Richard can either make them much less noticable or completely gone. This area respnds really well to the Botox treatment so our policy is to use small amounts of Botox initially as we can always add more FREE of charge during the follow up visit (within 4 weeks of the initial appointment).
The vertical wrinkles between the eyebrow are called “frown lines”. This lines can make you look angry and often older. It can usually be very effectively treated with Botox and in some cases with Dermal Fillers. The Botox injections into the muscles causes the lines to be treated fully (to completely obliterate movement) or partially – depending on the amount of toxin used.
The lines that appear around your eyes when you smile are called “crow’s feet” or simply “smile lines”. You maight have them from childhood or they can develop later in life – either way “smile lines” can be very effectively treated with Botox.
Non-surgical “brw lift” can help reduce excess skin hooding over the outer part of the eye and achieve the youthful “seagull wing” eyebrow look. The procedule helps to “open” the eyes up and reveale more of the upper eyelid.
Hyperhidrosis (the excess underarm sweating) affects up to 1% of the population. This condition can be quickly and effectively treated with Botox. Treatment takes 20 – 30 minutes and effects last up to 10 months. Dr Richard will explain the pros and cons and together you will decide if the treatment is right for you.
You’ll be advised of the possible result and the total cost before the treatment starts.

A very fine needle injects directly into the facial muscle to achieve subtle and flattering results.
Dermal Fillers are a very safe injectable products (such as Emarvel, Teosyal, Restylane, Juvaderm, Belotero) that replace lost soft tissue. Dermal Filler consultation is FREE & treatment on the same day if requested. Results are immediate!
– Lip Filler
Lip Fillers are used to replace or add volume to the lips. The whole appointment takes about 30 minutes and requires use of a gentle anesthetic (usually a numbing cream). A tiny needle is then used to inject the product into the lips – most people find it painless!
– Cheek Filler
Injecting cheek volumizing product into the cheeks below the natural cheek fat pad can be one of the most dramatic, yet ‘hard-to-put-your-finger-on’ improvements to the face. It is a very effective treatment called the ‘liquid cheek lift’. Results are immediate!
Patients might experience some slight swelling or redness, but this disappears in a day or two. Local anaesthetic is used to remove any pain involved with the procedure.
– Naso-Labial Folds Filler
The lines can make you look older, tired, or unhappy – even though you feel young and vibrant. Fortunately they are easily treated with Dermal Fillers. The procedure takes 5 minutes, you will see dramatic improvement instantly! Again, usually an anaesthetic is used (numbs up the area allowing needles to be used painlessly to inject filler to replace volume which has been lost over time).
