Botulinum Type A - muscle relaxing injections
Botulinum Type A (commonly known as Botox™ ) is the most popular anti-ageing treatment. Botox™ is used to treat and prevent wrinkle formation. Commonly it is used to treat frown lines (between the eyes), crow’s feet and the forehead. The results are a much younger rejuvenated appearance that can last for up to six months. Over time and by relaxing the facial muscles, this effect can be more prolonged.
Of course, you’ll want to know about any possible side effects of Botox™. It is remarkably safe in trained hands. Firstly you will have a thorough consultation with your doctor to make sure that Botox™ is suitable for you.
Botox™ injections are virtually painless. As with any injection, some minor bleeding, redness and bruising is possible. This can easily be concealed with makeup if necessary. Allergic reactions to Botox™ are extremely rare. In any event, you can rest assured that you will always be treated by an experienced doctor in a fully- equipped medical environment.
By using small doses of Botox™ and a ‘softly, softly’ approach, you won’t end up with an unnatural ‘frozen’ appearance.
