Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Botox Injections at Eden Skin & Laser Clinic

 

The most common form of wrinkle reduction that people are aware of is by botulinum toxin-type A which is an extremely effective muscle relaxant. This effect can soften or remove wrinkles caused by facial movement. Botulinum toxin can also be used to reduce underarm sweating—Hyperhidrosis.

How Wrinkle Reduction with Botulinum works

Wrinkles in the face such as frown lines, forehead wrinkling and ‘crows feet’ are all caused by the contracting of small muscles in the face. Wrinkles caused by smoking around the mouth and chin creases by overuse of the metalis muscle in the chin thus giving a dimpling appearance can all be treated effectively with botulinum.

Botulinum blocks the signal from the nerve endings to the muscle resulting in relaxation of the muscle and effectively stopping them moving with facial expressions such as frowning. The overall effect is wrinkle reduction with a smoother, softened and overall more youthful relaxed appearance. Clients may find friends/colleagues commenting on how well they look or say how good they look for their age. Wrinkle reduction with Botulinum can also achieve slight eyebrow lifting popular in female clients as an arched eyebrow is considered to be feminine and attractive.

Is Botulinum safe as a Wrinkle Reduction procedure?

Yes, it has been used safely for over 30 years in certain areas of medicine. It has been adapted for cosmetic use and is now one of the most requested cosmetic treatments available today.

When will I see results of this Wrinkle Reduction treatment?

The effects begin to show after approximately 5 days however it will usually take around 2 weeks for maximum effect. At this time a top up can be given if muscle movement is still present. Effects can usually be expected to last from 3-6 months but will vary from client to client.

How is it given and is the procedure painful?

A series of small injections are administered using a fine needle. There can be some stinging and bruising at the injection site. You will be given an aftercare sheet with instructions on how to minimise this. Arnica cream can be useful to minimise bruising.
