Anti Wrinkle Injections
BOTOX® is an injectable anti-ageing treatment used to smooth out wrinkles on the brow, soften crow’s feet, frown lines and smooth out bobbly chins and necks. It’s not expensive, is hugely common, and it can be done in your lunch hour. Botox® injections are non-invasive and the effects can last up to 3 to 4 months.
A series of tiny muscle relaxing injections are given to the area requiring treatment. The active ingredient is called Botulinum Toxin, which, when used in small doses, reversibly relaxes the muscles underneath the skin that produce lines and wrinkles. No local anaesthetic is required to numb the area before treatment and occasionally a small amount of bruising or swelling may occur at the injection sites, which resolves over a few days.
The result can usually last for around 4 months, gradually fades and needs to be repeated to be maintained.
