Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
Anti ageing Injections using botulinum toxin
FDA approved botulinum toxin is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments that aesthetic specialists know and trust.
Botulinum toxin treatments for the upper face
By using facial muscles repeatedly throughout our lifetime, the skin becomes creased in areas of greatest use. The ageing process causes the slowdown of collagen and elastin production in the skin so that as we get older, these areas of overuse become damaged and the lines become permanent.
Botulinum toxin is a chemical produced by bacterium clostridium botulinum – often referred to as Botox ( which actually is a brand name). When this prescription only medication is injected into muscle, it weakens and becomes in a state of relaxation.
The effects of the relaxed muscles give a younger, smoother appearance with no lines.
A fine tiny needle is used to inject the botulinum toxin into each area allowing the treatment to be virtually painless with no downtime, it really is a lunchtime facial.
The treatment starts to work within 3-4 days and full effect usually occurs between day 10-14 and lasts on average 12 weeks
