Do you want to smooth out your wrinkles?

If you want to turn back time and stop wrinkles from forming on your face, you’re not alone. The good news is that there are many wrinkle softening injections which can prevent deep set lines from forming on your face, particularly in areas concerning frown lines, crow’s feet or lines around the eyes.

You may already have heard of Botox. The type A botulinum toxin is just one wrinkle smoothing treatment which can be used to diminish lines and unwanted wrinkles. It works by using a purified bacterial substance to block nerve signals. A dentist can use facial aesthetics procedures such as this to weaken the facial muscles and diminish any frown lines or unwanted wrinkles which appear on the forehead or at the corner of the eyes. The effects generally last for 3-5 months.

The botulinum toxin (widely known as Botox) works by using a 10 minute treatment involving a few tiny injections. In days there will be a noticeable improvement in the persistent lines between brows, which can last up to 4 months. Over time this will reduce the activity of the muscles and prevent frown lines from forming over time.

The botulinum toxin is a safe and effective technique to use so long as it’s administered correctly by a trained professional.  It can treat wrinkles and unwanted frown lines caused by over activity of the facial muscles. Any side effects such as bruising, swelling, mild pain or a headache are minimal, reversible and are only reported by a minority of patients.
