Smoothing Lines & Wrinkles
Botulinum toxin treatments help improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. This is a prescription medication that is injected to relax the muscles, helping to prevent the creation of lines and wrinkles with age. This product temporarily prevents facial animation to specific areas, to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles forming.
What are anti wrinkle treatments
Botulinum toxin is a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. When this is injected in very small amounts to specific muscles, this causes them to relax by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses and reduce muscle contraction, which cause facial lines and wrinkles to form. Botulinum toxin has also been very successful in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions such as, chronic migraine and excessive sweating.
