Ageing is a fact of life...

LOOKING YOUR AGE IS NOT

Anti-Wrinkle Injections using Botulinum Toxin Type A has been used in medicine since 1984. It works as a muscle relaxant causing flaccid paralysis of the muscle resulting in a smoother appearance of the skin.

Signs of ageing in the face include fine lines and wrinkles caused by expressive muscle groups. Most common are the frown and worry lines (forehead) and crow’s feet (around the eyes).

The use of Botulinum Toxin can relax these muscles by blocking the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction causing a flaccid paralysis. The side effect of this is a pleasing aesthetic result of softening dynamic lines and wrinkles that develop over time.
