Facial Botox

Neurotoxin treatment is one of the most popular anti-aging and facial rejuvenation treatments. This popular treatment is applied to smooth wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles that lead to wrinkles after repeated facial expressions. The result is a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance, minimising the ageing signs.

The substances included in botox are a form of neurotoxin, which suppresses the nerves that cause facial muscles to contract. The most common use of this treatment is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. However, it can also be used in other areas, such as:

  • In the area between the eyebrows
  • In the horizontal folds on the forehead
  • In the lines at the corners of the mouth, known as smoker’s wrinkles
  • On the horizontal lines of the neck

Neurotoxin treatment improves the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows, while it can also slow down the formation of new lines and wrinkles by inhibiting muscle movement. Facial muscles that have not been treated will continue to contract normally to leave facial expressions unaffected. In this way, the skin acquires a smoother, more youthful appearance, winning, even for a temporary period, the battle with time.

Neurotoxin treatment is injected with a tiny needle, without pain or discomfort. It is a completely safe and effective method of dealing with dynamic expression wrinkles, without altering the facial features. The treatment is minimally invasive and offers an effective and safe way to reduce the signs of ageing. The results are immediately visible, as the skin appears at the same time more renewed, radiant and firm.

It is important that the injections are performed accurately to avoid side effects and this is the reason why that is why in our clinic the staff is specially trained. The number of injections and the amount of product required depends on the area to which it is applied and the desired result. If there is concern about pain or discomfort, a local anaesthetic may be applied to numb the area where botox is being performed. Discomfort is minimal and patients generally resume their normal daily activities immediately after treatment. Results usually last for 3 to 6 months.
