Botulinum toxin (often referred to as ‘Botox’) is a highly effective anti-wrinkle and anti-aging skin care treatment that softens fine lines and wrinkles. It aids long-term prevention and is an appropriate face wrinkle treatment for all ages.
It is the #1 cosmetic procedure in the world today and considered to be one of the best anti-aging treatments, but like any cosmetic procedure it still needs to be administered with professional care and skill. Whether you’re concerned about wrinkles around your eyes or on your forehead, Dr Ashley will ensure your treatment is safe and effective. Looking after you in her home-based cosmetic clinic in Wellington you can be assured you are getting high quality products administered by a qualified medical professional.
This anti-wrinkle treatment is a non-surgical procedure that involves a small amount of Botulinum Toxin being injected into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. Most commonly, Botulinum Toxin treatments are done for glabella frown lines (the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown) – sometimes called a ‘brow lift’. Each treatment takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and no anaesthetic is usually required. The injection may sting for a few seconds but normal activities can be resumed soon after.
Your results will be noticeable in three to 14 days and the benefits usually last around three months. For even greater overall results think about complimenting your anti-wrinkle treatment with one of our dermal filler treatments or collagen induction therapy.
