Wrinkle Smoothing Injections
BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Botox should only be prescribed and adminstered by a qualified medical professional like our nurses at FACE.
What are Line Smoothing Injections?
When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent.
When the muscles in our face move, a message is sent from the brain via nerves to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables are a natural protein that works by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
Are the Injections right for me?
While they may have made their name through celebrity use, BOTOX® injections are an affordable treatment that anyone can access. Unlike some cosmetic medical treatments, they're suitable for virtually anyone who has wrinkles or other skin lines that they want to remove.
This includes people who want to fight the signs of natural ageing, or those who've developed lines from exposure to the sun.
Botox treatment lasts on average 3-4 months.
Do the injections delay the signs of aging?
It has been reported that, if used regularly, anti-wrinkle injectables can delay and prevent the signs of ageing. As we know facial movement such as squinting and frowning can cause lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin restricts facial muscle movement which means signs of ageing can be prevented.
What happens at my consultation?
This will be with a highly trained medical professional who is experienced in administering injectables. In order to ensure we achieve the results you want, we will discuss with you your skin concerns, timings and finances. Our consultations are no obligation and we aim to help you understand the treatment, its effects and how it works to prevent and/or improve your fine lines.
