Many of us want our skin to look younger and firmer, unfortunately aging is accompanied by the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Frowning, squinting and raising the eyebrows are causes of these lines in the upper face. Our anti wrinkle treatments not only treat existing wrinkles they also prevent more from appearing as it reduces excessive facial movements.
Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®) is a muscle relaxant that blocks the nervous impulses directed towards the muscles which create the wrinkles, once the muscles are relaxed, the wrinkles are removed or improved in the area which is being treated.
