As we age, our skin changes. Over time, repetitive movements of the facial muscles (such as squinting and frowning), loss of volume and elasticity and the forces of gravity cause unwanted wrinkles and folds to develop.
It is now possible to smooth out these wrinkles and folds without surgery. The administration of Botox® or Dysport® is a safe and non-invasive procedure that provides therapeutic results, as well as treats the signs of aging naturally, precisely and non-surgically.
Botox and Dysport are both made from a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles, creating a smoother and improved appearance; rejuvenating the aging face. The effects are temporary and typically last 3-4 months. The injections can be done quickly, require no recovery time and are not as complicated as many other cosmetic procedures for the face.
