Facial wrinkles are caused by the contraction of your muscles. The treatment known as Botox™ (Botulinum Toxin) is a natural, purified protein used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. It has been used in hospitals around the UK since 1977 and within the cosmetic industry for over 25 years. It is used in 70 countries and is used on over 4 million patients in the USA alone, every year. Anti Wrinkle injections are commonly used by both males & females.
Botox™ is injected directly into specific facial muscles to create temporary relaxation, which can last between three and five months for most patients. This safe and proven treatment is excellent in treating the upper face, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.The treatments can be given in up to three separate areas of the face to treat muscles that cause frown lines, worry lines and laughter lines. Results should be visible within 7-14 days after treatment. Results are temporary and treatment is ongoing. Patients usually have an injectable treatment every 3-4 months to prevent lines from becoming static
Are there any downtime or side effects? While there is no real downtime or side effects associated with anti wrinkle injections, it is important to note that you may encounter some slight bruising and swelling directly after treatment, however this resolves very quickly. Post treatment advice is given at the initial consultation
