WHY DO WE DEVELOP WRINKLES?
Facial expressions are made possible by the movement of specific facial muscles. With time, repetitive movement such as frowning and smiling compresses the skin and damages the collagen in our skin. This is what leads to the formation of wrinkles and causes our skin to lose its elasticity.
WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Botulinum toxin type a is a protein that is produced by bacteria. It is not animal-based. Botox is a prescription-only medication (POM) and is prescribed specifically for you.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We carefully inject into specific areas of muscle. This stops the muscle from moving and smooths away the wrinkles leaving beautifully smooth and taut skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Results last between 3-6 months. Results are not immediate like dermal fillers but can be seen from as little as 4 days, full effects take up to 14 days.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
This is a very safe procedure but it is a prescribed medication so should be carried out by a medically qualified licensed practitioner who can prescribe and supply it.
You can expect minor redness and swelling for an hour.
