Anti-wrinkle injections, commonly known as Botox ®, use a toxin produced by a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum.
Hyperactivity of the facial expression muscles often leads to the development of deep frown lines, forehead lines, lip lines and crows feet.
By injecting Botulinum Toxin (Botox ®) into the muscle responsible for creating the wrinkle it can give the face a more relaxed and smoother appearance and sometimes the lines can disappear completely as the contractions of the muscles that cause persistent lines and wrinkles are reduced temporarily
Having examined your facial expression and muscle movement Dr Perea will discuss the results you would like to achieve.
Using an ultra fine needle tiny amounts of Botulinum Toxin are then injected into the muscles responsible of the lines and wrinkles
The procedure takes minutes.
Two weeks later the patient has a free review appoint with Dr Perea to check the results and to do any top up if necessary
Botulinum Toxin has been safely used in medicine for many years for strabismus (cross eyes) and blepharospasm (eyelid spasm) since the early eighties.
