Wrinkle Treatment (Botox)
Anti-wrinkle injections, or Botox injections, are an effective treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles.
Reasons for Botox injections & how long they last
Peoples’ facial expressions change because the muscles in the face contract or relax. This is caused by the brain sending a signal via the nerve endings that someone wants to frown or laugh. When an anti-wrinkle injection, commonly referred to as ‘Botox’, is used in a specific muscle, it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles in the face. This means that the nerve ending cannot tell the muscle to move. This is not a permanent condition, however, but it will last for around three to four months.
After anti-wrinkle injections
Your skin around the area which has been treated will look smooth and less wrinkled. These injections allow the untreated areas of your face to move as normal and you will still be able to laugh, smile and frown, but with less wrinkling of the skin in the areas treated.

The result of wrinkle treatment (Botox)
After a while, most patients will notice that the lines and wrinkles around their treated areas will continue to become less deep and pronounced. This is a result of the injections as the new skin has a chance to grow without being repeatedly creased. Hence, it appears to be smoother on the surface because it has not been creased by constant muscle activity.
Simple and quick
With next to no discomfort, Botox injections are administered to eliminate wrinkles and give your face a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections are offered to patients who might suffer from unsightly lines and wrinkles on their face, in particular the frown lines between the eyebrows (the ‘glabellar’ area), horizontal forehead creases and the smile lines at the outer corners of the eyes – the crow’s feet.
