Wrinkle Relaxation Treatment

How does it work?

 

The active medication in wrinkle relaxation Injections is botulinum toxin (often referred to as botox). It is a naturally occurring protein which is works by blocking chemical messages sent from the nerve to the muscle to contract. This result is relaxation of the targeted muscle. The muscle stays 'rested' until the toxin action wears off, after about 8-12 weeks.

 

Botulinum toxin is a prescription-only medication. Therefore clients must attend a face to face consultation prior to treatment with a medical professional either a doctor, dentist, nurse prescriber or prescribing pharmacist to check suitably before a prescription can be given.

 

What to expect from treatment

 

Following treatment, results can start to be seen from day 4-5 but allow 2 weeks for the optimal effect to be realised. You will be invited for a review at 2-3 weeks, where the effectiveness of the treatment can be assessed and any adjustments made if required.

 

Treatment is most suitable for dynamic lines (lines occurring on movement) rather than static lines. Therefore prevention is key with this treatment. With repeated Injections overtime the muscle will shrink and the lines will become less prominent.
