Wrinkle relaxing injections are used to get rid temporarily of unwanted lines caused by the ageing process. Several small injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A are administered and are effective on crow’s feet (on the side of the eyes), frown lines (between the eyes) and worry lines (on the forehead). The process temporarily relaxes the muscles, which leads to a reduction in lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking the nerve transmissions to specific muscles, reducing the activity of that muscle.
Having wrinkle relaxing injections won’t stop natural expression
The muscle action that causes frown lines is reduced, but you can still have expression, just without the wrinkles.
At RenewYou we use Botox®, the only product of this type that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s manufactured by Allergan and has been subject to stringent trials to ensure its safety. Botox® was licensed in 2002 by the FDA for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines in people aged 18 to 65 and in 2014 Allergan also obtained the licence to treat ‘Crows Feet’.
