Anti Wrinkle Injections – Botox
Line and wrinkle treatments
Anti wrinkle injections are one of the best known and popular non-surgical treatments for treating lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, laughing and frowning. It is used to prevent the muscle contractions that cause furrows and fine lines when the face is making expressions. The treatment is safe and virtually painless and results are visible within four to ten days, lasting for three to four months.
Line and wrinkle treatments are commonly used to treat areas in the upper part of the face, these treatments prevent fine lines and deep wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the muscles and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles already formed, restoring a more youthful appearance.
Untreated areas of the face aren’t affected, so you can still smile and frown, but the skin on the treated areas won’t wrinkle as much as usual.
The treatment is non-invasive with virtually no recovery time necessary; which means that you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
The most popular areas to treat are:
- Frown lines between the eyes
- Forhead lines
The treatment usually only takes 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. A very fine needle is injected into the area where the lines and wrinkles appear. This temporarily relaxes the muscles so that they no longer crease.
The results will take from 4-10 days to become visible. Depending on your lifestyle and how your muscles react to the treatment, the effects can last between 3-4 months.
