Anti-wrinkle injections

Regain a smoother and more youthful complexion

Treatment Overview

As we age, each of us become more susceptible to developing lines and wrinkles on our face due to the loss of collagen and elastin. The amount and location depends on bone structure, genetics, skin type, environment, lifestyle, and repeated facial movements such as smiling or frowning. Anti-wrinkle injections have the key active ingredient botulinum toxin (Botox) which works by blocking the chemical signals which tell our muscles to contract, thus smoothing out the dynamic lines created by those contractions. Anti-wrinkle injections provide subtle, natural-looking improvements and although overtime the muscle can weaken, repeat treatments are required to maintain the effect.
