Wrinkles treatment by Botulinum toxin injection or as known as ‘Botox ‘is a simple, non-surgical that can temporary smooth moderate to severe wrinkles on your face.
The lines that appear on your face such as between your brows (Frown lines), eyes and Forehead actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. You may have heard the expression "wearing your emotions on your sleeve," but in reality you wear them on your face. If you're angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows together. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying skin, and then, as anyone can see, you're frowning.
After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced.
Fortunately, there is a way to temporarily reduce moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on your face. Treatment with Botulinum Toxin (well known as Botox) can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. An improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 4 months, although results may vary.
You've probably heard a lot about Botox. It's been in the news, in fashion, health, and beauty magazines, and on TV. Your friends may even be talking about how it works. This is the one of the most popular treatment at our London Knightsbridge Laser clinic.
