Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by age, sun damage and repetitive muscle movement, which can result in a tired, unhappy or stressed appearance.
WHAT IT DOES
Neuromodulators target and treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines and marionette lines (the lines that run downwards from the corners of the mouth), creating a more relaxed, refreshed and youthful appearance.
HOW IT WORKS
Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments, are composed of botulinum type A which works by invading nerve cells, where it releases an enzyme that temporarily prevents muscle contraction. Full results can be seen within 7 days of this treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
A very small amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® is precisely injected into the muscle being treated, using a very fine needle. The sensation has been likened to a bug bite. While there is a mild level of discomfort, the treatment is quick and no sedation or local anaesthetic is required.
This treatment takes approximately 10-15 minutes, depending the number of injection sites required.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. The injection site may be slightly red immediately following the procedure, but this fades quickly. Some mild bruising may appear in the following days, but this can be easily covered up with makeup.
The effects of this treatment typically last 3-5 months.
