WHAT ARE ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Anti-wrinkle injections contain the active agent Botulinum Toxin, more commonly known under the brand name Botox. It’s derived from the organism Clostridium Botulinum and has multiple uses within the medical field, one of which is being able to treat wrinkles.
HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN WORK?
The toxin works by temporarily relaxing the muscle it is injected in. By doing so, the overlying skin breaks free of tension caused by muscle contraction, causing wrinkles to soften and fade.
What does the TREATMENT involve?
Depending on which area of the face you want to target your treatment, your practitioner will inject very small amounts of the toxin into the muscle beneath. The effects of botulinum toxin become noticeable 2-weeks after administration & naturally ware off after 3-months.
