Anti-Wrinkle injections commonly known as Botox is a treatment used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles as well as providing future prevention. They are also used to prevent headaches/ migraines and treat excessive sweating in the hands, feet, armpits or feet which usually lasts up to 6 months.
Anti-Wrinkle injections use a drug called Botulinum toxin which relaxes the overactive muscles in the face which causes you to get wrinkles and lines. We insert an ultra fine needle into the muscles which relaxes them temporarily for a period of 3-6 months. In some cases, the effects can last much longer than 6 months dependent on skin type and lifestyle.
Botox injections help to reduce the signs of ageing by plumping up and restoring the skins youthful volume, create a smoother and fuller look whilst maintaining natural facial expression. It can reduce the look of worry lines, crow’s feet, frown and laugh lines as well as giving you a natural eyebrow lift for that more awake look.
Botulinum Toxin injections have been safely used now for over 15 years and is becoming a common and popular treatment to prevent wrinkles amongst women and men today. The treatments aim is to break the habit of frowning and squinting by relaxing these muscles we use to do so, which will reduce the appearance of the lines and also help to prevent the further development of future facial lines.
