How do Anti-wrinkle Injections Work?
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. In a purified form, as is the case with many drugs/medications such as Penicillin, Botulinum toxin is a very safe, effective treatment not only used in cosmetic clinics, but also for a number of medical conditions.
Anti-wrinkle injections block the transition of chemical messages sent from the nerve to cause the muscle to contract. Without these messages, the muscle stays in a resting state until the ‘messengers’ recover.
The aim of this treatment is to significantly reduce the movement ofthe muscles causing expression lines (dynamic lines).
This is not a one size fits all treatment and will be tailored to suit your individual requirements and expected treatment outcomes. It is important to discuss this at the time of consultation.
After treatment it is expected that you will start to see an improvement within 3 to 7 days. Results tend to last 3-4 months.
