What is this wrinkle treatment?
Botox®, or botulinum toxin, is a prescription drug and purified protein that is used in aesthetic medicine as a wrinkle relaxer, as wall as treating ailments and conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), bruxism (teeth grinding) and cerebral palsy.
In aesthetic medicine, we can use a series of injections to treat fine lines, wrinkles and facial grooves. The anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that over time create pronounced lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead, among other areas.
By injecting controlled amounts to precise, strategic areas, a medical professional can ease the tension and prevent you from overworking those active muscles, meaning that the wrinkle above it is lessened and you gain an anti-ageing result.
What are the Benefits?
Botulinum toxin injections not only provide effective results, but the original, branded Botox® has been around for over 100 years. With a plethora of medical studies behind it, and years’ worth of practice, Botox® is incredibly safe, in the right hands.
Botox® injections, as discussed, can smooth lines and wrinkles on the face, but it can also be adopted for jawline slimming, whereby the product works to contour the line and silhouette of the jaw, creating a much more refined shape and line.
We also use Botox® at PHI Clinic to treat excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. The sweat production is dramatically reduced, and patients see results for some months.
The benefits of having botulinum toxin, is that it is tried and tested, it is effective and safe in the right hands, and while results are long-lasting, they are not permanent. This is usually ideal for first-timers and for those who want natural results. We use the brand Botox, by Allergan, for its proven efficacy and safety.
