BOTOX® injections (For Frown lines and crow's feet)

Lines and wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have earned every one of your worry lines, you don't have to show them anymore. Now, thanks to FDA approved wrinkle reduction injections (BOTOX®) these lines can be softened. The procedure known as cosmetic denervation utilises BOTOX® to improve the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, crow's feet and other dynamic wrinkles.

How does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® blocks from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Botulinum relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
