Botox treatment has become an established brand name in its own right and for good reason: because it just plain works. When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent. When we want to move the muscles in our face, a message is sent from the brain via nerves to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables are a natural protein that works by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
Botulinum toxin injections are most commonly used for:
– Frown Lines
– Lines around the eyes (crow’s feet)
– Horizontal forehead lines
– Nasal scrunch or squint lines (bunny lines)
– Lines on neck
Botox treatment is administered through a series of precise and formulated injection points. The product is introduced to the face via ultra-fine microneedles. They are specially designed to reduce the pain of the injection and to make your treatment as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We do, however, provide numbing cream or ice for patients, if requested.
The wrinkles injections themselves usually take a matter of minutes, but we may wish to monitor you for a brief period after your treatment or consult you before treatment if it is your first time. This is to ensure that you get the right treatment for you, and that your safety is upheld at all times.
There are many different uses for Botox, including for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), for irritable bladder, migraine, stiff muscles and it is also used to treat cerebral palsy within children. It is incredibly safe and has lots of clinical studies and trials behind it to back its efficacy. For cosmetic treatment, botulinum toxin is used is small doses to temporarily relax facial muscles and prevent overuse. This in time will smooth facial lines and wrinkles and give a rejuvenated result.
