Wrinkle relaxing injections with botulinum toxin are the most commonly requested cosmetic procedure around the world.
This treatment is safe, quick and reliable for fine lines and wrinkles with virtually no downtime, creating a youthful, relaxed appearance. Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity due to numerous factors and those creases deepen over time. Frown lines between your eyes can make you look angry or worried even when you’re not.
By temporarily relaxing the muscles you use to frown; wrinkle relaxing injections can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression on your face.
Wrinkle treatments (such as Botox®) do not require any anaesthetic, although if preferred the target area may first be numbed with a cold pack or local anaesthetic cream. A very small amount of the relaxant is injected very precisely into several locations on the face. Impulses are blocked from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that help contribute to wrinkles. The muscles therefore cannot contract and tend to relax.
