We offer the world’s top three FDA approved wrinkle relaxers on the market. Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®. A full consultation is provided and no allergy testing required pre-treatment.
These products work by relaxing the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles when your face is in animation. Over time the repetitive action of frowning, squinting or smiling can create lines to appear which deepen and linger longer when the face is at rest.
Common aesthetic and cosmetic areas for treatment are as follows:
- Frown Lines – the ‘11s’ lines between our eyebrows which deepen over time as we frown repeatedly.
- Crow’s Feet – These are often referred to as our lovely laughter lines but can deepen with time and create lines that stay there when not in animation.
- Forehead – The horizontal lines across your forehead can be softened nicely.
