Smooth out wrinkles
Naturally, as we age we start to lose elasticity and tone of our skin, as a result, the skin recoils and wrinkles, lines and folds appear.
The UK’s most popular cosmetic procedure for the removal of these lines and wrinkles is with anti-wrinkle injections, commonly referred to as ‘Botox’, short for Botulinum toxin type A. This is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin type A works by blocking nerve receptors to the desired facial muscles stopping them and thus the overlying skin from moving, allowing the skin to heal and having the overall effect of a reduction in wrinkles or making them appear more shallow.
