ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS/ BOTOX

Wrinkles are visible signs of ageing. They can be categorised into Dynamic or Static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are seen when muscles in the face make expressions. For example, raising the eyebrows cause forehead wrinkles. However, if this is done repeatedly then static wrinkles can form whereby the wrinkles are visible while the face is at rest. Static wrinkles are also formed through skin ageing, sun damage and free radicals (smoking, pollution, makeup, etc.)

The Anti-wrinkle injections can prevent dynamic wrinkles by restricting some muscle movements and over time, with repeated treatments, can help soften the static wrinkles.

The product used is prescription only Botulinum Toxin A which acts to stop muscle movements, locally around the injection site. An example of this product is Botox which is our product of choice.
