Wrinkle Injection?

Wrinkle relaxing injections using Botox / Vistabel have become the cornerstone of any anti-ageing programme and are currently the number one cosmetic procedure carried out in the UK.

How do Botox, Vitabel  and Azzalure injections work?

When injected into selected muscle groups, the toxin works by blocking the chemical signals sent from nerves to facial muscles that are related to expression lines, such as the frown lines and crows feet for example. The overlying skin will look smooth, leaving you with a more rested and youthful look.

The amounts injected for aesthetic reason are minute and cause no damage, then it is is not a permanent side effect lasting only a few weeks.

This treatment uses a therapeutic dose, a dilute form of Botulinum Toxin Type A which temporarily paralyses muscle. (see treatment note below)
