Lines and Wrinkles

 

Botulinum toxin A   is the tried and true method for softening frown lines, forehead lines and lines around the eyes.

 

Botulinum toxin A is derived from a bacteria and has been used in the cosmetic industry both in New Zealand and overseas for at least 20 years.

 

When injected by a trained health professional, Botulinum toxin A is a safe and effective treatment of skin wrinkles in the face.

 

 

 

How does it work?

 

This medicine works by blocking the transmission of information from the nerve to the muscle and prevents contraction of the muscle under the skin.

 

It is this constant contraction over time that leads to lines and wrinkles in the face.

 

By blocking the muscle contraction with Botulinum toxin A, the lines and wrinkles will soften leaving your skin smoother.
