Botox Anti Wrinkle treatment
What is Botox®?
Botox® is one of the best-known and most popular anti-ageing treatments within aesthetics and beauty. It is commonly used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. Botox® can also be used to treat migraines and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
What can Botox® treat?
Botox® is particularly suited to the upper face area (particularly the forehead and around the eyes). It is an ideal treatment for:
Weak masseter (jaw) muscles
Migraines and tension headaches
Botox® can also be combined with Dermal Fillers (ideal for addressing signs of ageing on the lower half of the face) to achieve complete facial rejuvenation.
How Botox® works
In simple terms, Botox® works by temporarily paralysing certain facial muscles. Tiny amounts are injected into the area to be treated, which blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This means that the injected muscle is no longer able to contract, which causes lines and wrinkles to soften and look much less prominent. At the same time, this helps to prevent future wrinkles from forming.
