Anti-wrinkle treatments are the most commonly administered of all in the field of aesthetic medicine – millions of people around the world have safely received injections of botulinum toxin, or Botox, to successfully reverse the most obvious effect of aging.
Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscle behind the wrinkle, leaving a smooth and even area of skin. After around 120 days, the nerve endings regenerate and the effect will wear off.
It’s critical that the botox is injected by a trained professional at precisely the right point and to the correct depth, to ensure relaxation of the desired muscle and not surrounding areas.
The highly experienced team at Face by Rebecca have a long track record of success in anti-wrinkle treatments and will custom design your treatment plan for the most natural effect.
