Along with the wisdom, experience and accomplishments that come with getting older, there are changes that occur in our outward appearance.
Even if you have great genes and look
much younger than you are, age-related changes in our facial appearance are unavoidable.
Not everyone is comfortable with that, and some might like to postpone embracing those changes.
Smoothing out laughter/ worry lines isn't always easy.
As we get older, wrinkles form because our skin becomes less elastic becomes susceptible to sun damage.
We offer wrinkle reducing treatments to help patients achieve a younger appearance. Our skin smoothing treatments are a quick and easy way to smooth out those lines of the forehead and around the eyes.
Made from a drug called botulinum toxin, the injections relax the specific muscles to stop the wrinkles forming. We only target the specific muscles so your normal facial expressions aren't affected
The treatment we use has been proven safe and is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States. The long-term effects are well-known, but despite it safety record, it is incredibly important that it is administered by a qualified professional. The relaxant is dissolved in a sterile saline solution and we inject it with a very thin needle. You will likely only feel a very slight tingling sensation- otherwise it is nearly painless and only takes a few minutes.
The full effect of the treatment will take three to five days before it is noticeable and will reach its full effect in about 14 days. The results will last roughly 3 to 6 months but if you want smoother skin for longer the treatment will need to be repeated. And if you repeat the treatment before the effect is completely gone, it will ultimately last even longer.
No. In fact, the treatment we use not only has a therapeutic effect, it also acts as a preventative as well. This means that if/when you stop treatment and your wrinkles gradually become visible again, they will not have progressed and will be just as they were before you had any treatment.
