Botox® is a non-surgical treatment that is administered by one of our professionally trained clinicians. The treatment temporarily reduces frown lines, forehead lines, lines around the mouth and crow’s feet. During treatment, very small doses of Botox® (botulinum toxin type A) are injected into facial muscles, which causes them to relax and smooths out the skin. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed, meaning you can literally have a treatment during your lunchtime, if you wish, and return to work in the afternoon.
Botox® works by blocking the normal nerve impulses to the muscles that cause them to contract. The muscles then relax, and this gives the dynamic wrinkles a chance to soften, giving the skin a smoother, younger appearance.
