Anti Wrinkle Treatment
What are they?
Anti –wrinkle injections use a purified protein called Botulinum Toxin produced by Clostridium bacteria. This toxin relaxes specific muscles that cause unwanted facial lines and wrinkles, causing the lines and wrinkles to soften. It can also be used to reduce excessive sweating.
What is involved?
An initial consultation is required to ensure that anti-wrinkle injections will be suitable. The treatment involves a series of tiny injections into the muscles using a fine needle, which are virtually painless. After treatment you can carry on with your daily routine.
When will I see results?
It takes up to 3 weeks for the maximum effect to be obtained, but you will be able to see a difference in a few days. Results generally last about 3 months, but can last longer with repeated treatments.
Are there any side effects or risks?
There is a risk of slight bruising or swelling after the injections in some people, but this is normally mild. Very rarely, other muscles may be affected and weakened, but this is only temporary.
