Wrinkles and lines are developed when the natural collagen in the skin depletes at around the age of 30 these wrinkles worsen over time with use of the muscles used for facial expression and develop into a permanent feature. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, stress, smoking, pollution and drinking alcohol can exacerbate the problem. Keeping your face smooth and supple is no easy task.
Injectable anti-wrinkle treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out those lines on the forehead, “11” and around the eyes without any need for surgery.
Botulinum toxin type A is a prescription only medication that works by temporally blocking the signals made by nerve endings it works by stopping the release of Acetylcholine this chemicals role is to transmit the signals made by the nerve endings to the muscles that causes contraction and movement and wrinkle formation.
Anti-wrinkle injections can last between 2 to 4 months in some cases up to 6 months. The effects gradually disappear over time leaving your skin’s appearance as it was before your treatment, it is like stop ageing the skin for that period of time, it will never get worse the way it looked before treatment.
