Lines & Wrinkles
Anti-wrinkle injections help relax the facial muscles associated with lines and wrinkles , consequently providing a temporary solution to smoother skin and a natural, rest and rejuvenated appearance. You've probably heard of this as the most popular cosmetic treatment around the world, and I chose to use a brand named "Botox" which is a medicine derived from botulinum toxin.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DOES IT HURT?
The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS SAFE?
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.
ARE 'BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS' THE ONLY OPTION FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GET RID OF THEIR WRINKLES?
Not at all, there are various options. It may be that dermal fillers or facial peels or dermaroller are possible alternatives for you. Before you undergo any treatment, you will be invited for a consultation to determine what is best.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
