Wrinkle relaxing

Wrinkle relaxing is a highly popular and widely available non-surgical treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve facial contours. This simple treatment can dramatically smooth and soften expression lines to give a youthful, rested and rejuvenated look.

What is  wrinkle relaxing?

Wrinkle relaxing involves the use of Botulinum toxin A, a neurotoxin that works by blocking the release of a chemical from your nerve endings, preventing muscles from contracting. The result is more relaxed facial muscles in the targeted areas which over time can soften lines and make skin appear fuller and more radiant.

Botulinum treatments are safe if administered properly by a trained healthcare professional.
