ANTI WRINKLE TREATMENT
Botox and anti-wrinkle injections inhibit certain chemical impulses from neurones, primarily those that cause muscles to contract. Most of the time, these injections are used to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines and fine lines around the eyes.
Botox typically lasts 3–4 months or sometimes longer, in the range of 4-6 months, or shorter, in the range of 2 months. It is also normal for first-timers to see that the effects may not be as long-lasting at first but may linger longer following a second session.
Areas which can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections
Frown lines (between eyebrows)
Top of the nose (bunny lines)
Crows feet (around eyes)
Under the eyes (tear through)
Lipstick lines (around mouth)
Mouth Contour (flip lip)
Chin (prevent dimpling)
Jawline & Neck (helps sagging jowls)
Jaw Angle (teeth grinding - bruxism)
IS THERE ANYONE WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE BOTOX?
Although Botox usually has minimal risks, there are some, and it is not suitable for everyone. If you have any neurological disease, you must first of all get a note from your doctor before you can have the treatment. Although there is no evidence that Botox can harm the foetus no reputable clinic or practitioner would administer Botox to anyone who was pregnant or breastfeeding.
WHAT ARE SIDE EFFECTS OF BOTOX AND ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

ANTI WRINKLE AFTERCARE ADVICE
Sit up for at least 6 hours after treatment to prevent toxin migration.
Wear no makeup to prevent infection of the injection site.
Wait 24 hours before exercising to prevent migration or bruising.
WHAT SHOULD I AVOID
Avoid touching or rubbing.
Frowning, smiling, and raising your brows will help your toxin kick in faster.
Rest after treatment if possible.
Drink water to stay hydrated, as Botox can dehydrate you.
