After years of squinting, frowning, laughing, emoting and generally being alive, temporary lines and wrinkles will form and these eventually become permanent.
Whenever we move the muscles in our face, a message is beamed from our brain to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables, such as Botox, work by blocking this process, leaving those muscles unable to contract and therefore 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.
Possible Botox side effects and complications include:
– pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site
– headache or flu-like symptoms
– droopy eyelid or cockeyed eyebrows
– crooked smile or drooling
– eye dryness or excessive tearing
No anesthesia is required for and there is no downtime or recovery time for botulinum toxin injections.
