Botox Anti Wrinkle Injections
The globally-renowned Onabotulinumtoxina (Botox) injections are the most popular non-surgical anti-ageing treatment available, and there are very good reasons why. Not only are the effects very noticeable after a couple of weeks, but because many of us see our first signs of ageing as the wrinkles around our eyes.
We call them laughter lines, but not many of us think the wrinkles around our eyes are very funny! The botox injections will relax your wrinkles, reduce your frown lines and help melt away those tell-tale ageing signs.
The treatment involves the injection of small amounts of product into the facial muscles which blocks signals sent from the nerves. The result of this is that these muscles are no longer able to contract, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. The effects however, do not begin until at least 2 to 4 days after treatment and it can sometimes take up to 2 weeks before muscle relaxation is complete. In most cases, the effects are long lasting and will continue for about 3 to 4 months. After this time the muscle function in the treated areas gradually returns.
Botox can be used medically to help:
- Axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Bruxism (teeth clenching)
- Hemifacial spasm
- Cerebral palsy
- Cervical dystonia
