Anti-Wrinkle Injections with Botulinum Toxin
As we age we develop lines and wrinkles but when treated with Neurotoxin they can be reduced and even prevented. Neurotoxin is an effective treatment for lines and wrinkles. Well placed injections achieve a natural but more youthful appearance.
Small amounts of Botulinum Toxin are injected into the face using a disposable syringe, this causes temporary muscle paralysis of the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles.The patients see a gradual improvement in their facial lines, giving them a softer and fresher look. This effect lasts for three months, at which point the facial muscles start to work again. Usually patients then return for a top-up.
The procedure only takes a few minutes and most patients only experience mild discomfort. After the procedure there may be some swelling but this is usually minimal and soon subsides. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment.
Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the armpits (hyperhidrosis).
