About Anti-wrinkle Injections

Botox is the common term for the product used, and the treatment using Botulinum toxin. Botox helps to temporarily relax the muscles and excessive movements to smooth out the skin. At Radiance we prefer not to give a ‘frozen look’, just a natural relaxed appearance.

The Problem

The Problem

Your skin is like a piece of paper, the more you crease it, the more permanent the creases become. Strong frown muscles cause the typical number 11’s between the brows, strong squint muscles cause crow’s feet and strong forehead muscles cause the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead.

When you are young the skin just springs back and there are no visible wrinkles, but as you age and the skin loses elasticity the wrinkles are present even at rest. These wrinkles contribute to making your face look older than it is and can be a cause of loss of confidence and have an affect on mental health.

How It Works

Botox was first introduced by ophthalmic surgeons who injected it near the eye to stop facial tics and they noticed that it reduced the wrinkles in the skin, giving a more youthful appearance. It is now used in many areas of the face and also for many medical conditions such as migraines. The Botox attaches to the nerve endings thus stopping the message to ‘contract’ to the muscles. It is injected into the required area using tiny needles.
