How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

 

When botulinum toxin enters the body via an injection it will temporarily prevent the muscle from moving, in turn this smooths wrinkles on the face. Botulinum toxins are also used for medical purposes to treat hyperhidrosis 

(excessive sweating) and can treat migraines. Our Injector will gently inject the toxin using a very fine needle.

The procedure takes between 15 and 30 minutes allowing you to carry on with your daily routine as normal.

What is the difference between neurotoxins on the market?

They are all essentially the same class of medications, under a class of neurotoxins type A. They are all administered by an injection with similar efficacy and duration intervals. They are basically like choosing from different brand names, example: Prada, Fendi, Gucci etc. as this is something you can better understand.

The difference is in the name of the toxin and the dosage administered, but for a patient, the efficacy is essentially the same. A Patient can try a different brand if needed and determine if they have a longer duration or effect. 

On which areas can anti-wrinkle injections be used?

 

Anti-wrinkle injections are mainly administered around the face particularly the forehead, crow's feet, worry lines and around the eyes and the frown lines between the eyes on the bridge of the nose (glabellar wrinkles) Chin, nose.

Botulinum toxin injections can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
