NON-SURGICAL injections for wrinkle reduction
Facial lines appear naturally as we age. Factors such as stress, poor diet and sun damage can speed up the aging process until deep lines and wrinkles begin to set in. Botox® or Dysport® is a quick 10-minute treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better. Some patients receiving treatment report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 3-7 days, with results lasting up to 3 months for moderate to severe frown lines. This is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.

Reducing and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles lasting 3-6 months. Anti wrinkle Injections are the most effective rejuvenating treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles.

WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botulinum Toxin A, known under the brand name of Botox, is a highly popular aesthetic treatment at Skin Deep Cosmetics & Aesthetics, and is predominantly used to smooth out wrinkles in the upper face. However, Botox injections are also used for lower face slimming and non surgical neck lifts.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerve to the facial muscles under the skin to stop them contracting and causing wrinkle formation. The results boast a refreshed, wrinkle free and smooth appearance. This can cause a reduce in brow movement, and create a smooth youthful appearance. We are able to lift the brows, create a more defined arched brow and a refreshed look. Results can take up to 2 weeks to show, and usually last anywhere from three to six months. A two week review is offered post botox injections to ensure all is well.
