Achieve A Balanced Natural Look
Wrinkle relaxing injections use the very simple process of rebalancing facial expression muscles. Over the years the muscles of fatigue, worry, stress (and concentration) can dominate leading to a tired, careworn appearance which belies what you really feel. By using winkle relaxing injections of botulinum toxin type A, carefully placed to achieve a balanced natural look, excellent results can be produced.
What is Botox?
Botox® is the trade name given to the purified protein Botulinum Toxin type A. It is made synthetically and was originally used to treat neurological disorders. The cosmetic effects were, like many advances in medicine, discovered quite by chance. Patients who had been treated for blepharospasm (an involuntary spasm of the muscle surrounding the eye) noticed how much less wrinkled and more awake they appeared after Botulinum toxin treatment for their disorder. Botulinum toxin has now become licensed to treat patients for cosmetic procedures, principally the reduction in facial lines, especially frown lines, “crow’s feet” and forehead lines. Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the armpits, forehead or hands, as it also blocks the nerves that supply sweat glands.
The use of wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal fillers is on the increase. Many people, who now use these treatments in their routine grooming or maintenance regime, were initially reticent to try them. The reason lies in being able to see the difference they can make.
The purpose of wrinkle relaxing injections is not to look younger per se, but to look more refreshed and less stressed, angry and tired. No amount of detox, dieting or exercise will remove frown lines ingrained from years of concentrating. The purpose of facial rejuvenation is to reflect what is felt inside and, with the resultant positive feedback, the improvement in appearance reinforces that feeling. You will feel better about the way you look and the effect of this on your day-to-day life can be enormous.
