Botox

Soften and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines with expertly administered Botulinum (Botox, Dysport or Xeomin) injections under the guidance of an experienced practitioner. An initial facial analysis will assess the natural movement of your face and the position of the lines, determining the number and placement of the injections to achieve natural-looking results. Our experienced practitioner will inject prescription-only neuromodulators in the targeted areas with precision, which will temporarily reduce muscle activity resulting in a softened, smoother appearance. Results last on average 3 to 6 months.

About

Botulinum toxin is a neuromodulator protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is commonly used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as for various medical conditions such as muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and migraines.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Botulinum works by blocking the nerve signals that control muscle movement. When injected into a specific muscle, it binds to the nerve endings and prevents the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which is responsible for signalling the muscle to contract. This temporary paralysis of the muscle relaxes the overlying skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions, such as those that occur when we frown or squint.
