Anti Wrinkle Injections
What are Anti Wrinkle Injections?
Anti Wrinkle Injection solution is a purified protein made from a toxin produced by bacterium clostridium botulinum. It is also known as botulinum toxin. This purified protein helps relax the muscles by blocking nerve impulses. This then temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox is a brand name. Botulinum toxin, Anti-Wrinkle injections aim to smooth lines and wrinkles by weakening the hyperactive muscles. It can also be used to restore symmetry on the face and to weaken the chewing muscle that cause grinding of teeth. Botulinum toxin is also very effective in reducing excessive sweating. People who suffer from acne can also see an improvement in their skin with this treatment. This treatment should only be carried out by a medical professional.

Frequently Asked Questions
Every time you smile or frown, a nerve signal is sent from your brain to your facial muscles prompting them to move. Over time, due to photo-ageing and chronological ageing, this movement causes wrinkles to form. Anti-wrinkle injections contain a purified protein that blocks this signal – which means that although your skin becomes smoother and less lined when you laugh or frown, your un-treated muscles work normally so as not to affect your facial expressions. We always believe that a natural look is best.
Normally treatments will take up to 45 minutes depending on the underlying concern. The consultation time and time taken to answer your queries is not included in this time. .
Although the length of time results last can vary from patient to patient, typically results last for 3 – 4 months.
