Wrinkles and lines on the upper part of the face are typically caused by muscle movement when we frown, raise our eyebrows, smile and laugh. A great solution to help improve these lines is the use of products such as Botulinum Toxin or Botox, as it is commonly known. Other treatments include Skin Boosting Therapy and PDO Threads.
The main ingredient of anti-wrinkle injections for the upper half of the face is usually Botulinum Toxin or Botox. In large doses Botulinum toxin is poisonous. The very small amounts of the toxin used in the injections from FDA approved, tried and tested products is not harmful.
Most clients want treatment for one or more of these facial areas: Frown lines between the eyebrows, Horizontal forehead lines or Crow’s feet or smile lines around the eyes. Other areas can be treated, such as an eyebrow lift, wrinkles around the lips, neck cords (turkey neck) or wrinkling of the nose (bunny nose) and the jaw muscles to help prevent jaw clenching.
The Botulinum toxin has the effect of restricting the movement, as well as relaxing, the muscles, which are causing the folds or wrinkles in the skin. The relaxed muscles smooth out the wrinkled skin and help prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Botox, the usual product used for Anti-Wrinkles Injections, is used in tiny doses, which, research has shown, is safe. I only work with quality, tried and tested products. Before treatment, all clients see an on-site doctor/nurse prescriber for toxin prescriptions.
Looking fake is usually a sign of too regular or excessive treatment. Most clients want a natural look, which is achieved by injecting a smaller quantity of the product. The frozen look incurs slightly higher fees.
