At the Skin & Laser Clinic we use Botox by Allergan for our wrinkle-smoothing treatments. This is because it has been proven over the years to be safe, effective and to last longer than other toxins.
Wrinkles and lines on the face are typically caused by muscle movement when we frown, raise our eyebrows, smile and laugh. A great solution to help improve these lines is the use of products such as botulinum toxin or Botox as it is commonly known.
In wrinkle-smoothing treatments, a diluted solution of botulinum toxin is injected into small muscles in and around the face to temporarily relax them. This causes the smoothing out of lines and wrinkles. Accurate targeting of the muscles can be achieved to minimise the vertical lines in between the eyebrows , lateral lines on the forehead and lines around the crows feet. Other areas on the face and neck can also be treated.
You may want a frozen look or something more natural which we discuss as part of your initial free consultation.
The treatment is very effective and lasts for 3 to 6 months. These injections are a popular and safe method of achieving smoother, wrinkle-free, younger-looking skin.
The reduction of sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Botulinum toxin injections can also be used to reduce excessive sweating for armpits, hands, feet, groin and forehead. This treatment typically gives longer benefits of approximately 6-12 months.
Small Doses of toxin can also be places in Specific areas of the face and head to help reduce migraine attacks.
