Wrinkle relaxers, commonly known as Botox or tox, are most often used on the brow, frown lines, forehead and around the eyes to soften facial wrinkles. The result is a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Botox®Cosmetics and Xeomin® treatments are among the most common, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments worldwide. These treatments can be used in other facial areas or for treating migraines and jaw clenching.
How Wrinkle Relaxers Work
Botox®Cosmetics and Xeomin® treatments relax facial muscles, preventing the excessive movement that results in wrinkling of the skin. Treatments can be started at any age. wrinkle relaxers are an effective way to minimise fine lines and wrinkles.
What to expect
Treatment is quick and simple. Botox®Cosmetics or Xeomin® is injected into the skin at the desired locations and the procedure is usually completed within 15 minutes, with results gradually appearing over the next few days, but occasionally taking up to 2 weeks. Results typically last for 3 to 4 months.
True Lift supports 4 key structural ligaments in your face. These ligaments run from bone to skin and support the compartments of your face. Over time, these ligaments tend to sag, which causes you to look tired and heavy. Dermal fillers are used in the True Lift service, giving a rejuvenated appearance.
How does True Lift work?
Restylane Lyft is placed under the 4 ligaments to help support and lift them, giving a natural-looking and refreshed appearance. True Lift re-tightens these ligaments. In some, it can also have a slimming effect on the face.
Who is True Lift for?
Anyone who feels their face, especially the lower half looks heavy, sagging and tired and is looking for a rejuvenated appearance.
What happens at my appointment?
