Botox – Wrinkles

How are wrinkles caused?

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. Wrinkle Relaxing Injections is another name used to describe Botox. This describes the main function of the Allergen injections within the name, making it easier for people with no knowledge to understand what benefits it has.

The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. Whilst you may have earned every one of your worry lines, you do not have to live with them any longer. One of the many benefits of wrinkle relaxing injections is that it eliminates frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and lines around the mouth. It can also benefit excessive sweating and chronic migraine headaches. Clinically Botulinum Toxin A has been used for Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s disease and Stroke.

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections, (aka Botox) remove laughter lines, crow’s feet and facial creases, administered effectively and safely by using a very fine needle. The signs of ageing are erased by relaxing the dynamic facial muscles that are responsible for facial wrinkles, smoothing out the skin giving a softer and more youthful appearance. The main areas treated are the frown, eye and forehead. After a few injections you can carry on your normal day, Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) injections are now the UK’s no 1 treatment for facial lines and wrinkles simply because it really does remove the tell-tale signs of ageing.  Contact us today to arrange your Devon Botox treatment, Our Botox clinic is highly recommended and clients travel from Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay, Devon, Cornwall & Somerset.
