What is Botulinum Toxin?
Botox is a protein derived from naturally occurring Botulinum Toxin.
Botulinum Toxin is a muscle relaxant which may help treat a number of conditions within the body. It works by partially blocking the nerve impulses to any muscles that have been injected and reduces excessive contractions of these muscles. In the case of chronic migraine, Botox may block pain signals, which indirectly blocks the development of a migraine.
Anti-aging injections can temporarily improve the appearance of:
• Vertical lines between the eyebrows seen at maximum frown
• Fan-shaped lines from the corner of the eyes seen at maximum smile
• Forehead lines seen at maximum raised eyebrows
FINE LINES AND WRINKLES IN THE SKIN
Wrinkles are part of the ageing process. They can be attributed to sun damage, the effects of gravity and muscle contraction resulting from facial expressions such as frowning and laughing. Wrinkles due to the effects of gravity represent natural changes seen in the facial skin and the underlying fat, muscles and bones.
Wrinkles caused by muscle contraction such as frown lines, forehead lines and crows’ feet, might be improved with anti-aging injections.
