ANTI-WRINKLE toxin injections IMPROVES THE APPEARANCE OF LINES AND WRINKLING ON THE FACE, CREATING A MORE RELAXED AND YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE.
We use a purified protein which produces temporary muscle relaxation around a week after direct injection. Naturally-occurring toxins cause paralysis of a muscle when injected directly. Carefully targeting muscles that cause facial wrinkles, the effect can be to reduce or remove wrinkles and lines due to sun exposure, creating a more relaxed and youthful appearance. As the treatment is targeted the rest of your face will not be affected, and you will still be able to laugh, smile and frown but with less wrinkling of the skin in the areas treated.

If you’re nervous about the outcome of the procedure I suggest you go in slowly. You can request a subtle effect “Baby Anti-Wrinkle Toxin Injections” or full relaxation of the chosen areas to achieve a natural enhancement that lasts for up to 3-4 months.
Pain relief is not usually needed. You are advised to sleep on your back and to avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours. After your treatment we will then discuss with you a treatment plan to upkeep these results going forward and schedule in any top-up injections.
