In addition, the aging process causes the slow down of collagen and elastin production in the skin, so eventually these lines can become permanent. Sun damage can also be a major factor.
Injecting botox in micro amounts temporarily relaxes muscles in these areas, the skin stops being creased and recovers, causing the lines to soften or even fade away. It also allows the patient to break the subconscious habit of over-using these muscles. It is safe, quick, reliable and with virtually no downtime, results in a more youthful, refreshed and relaxed appearance.
We favour the subtle and precise use of botox, so that the skin improvement is achieved, but without being ‘frozen’.
We offer a review after 2 weeks to monitor your progress. Depending on the area treated, and how you respond to Botox®, repeat treatments may be required around every 4-6 months.
