As we get older the skin becomes thinner and drier. It is no longer as moist or as supple as it once was. We also may notice that we are starting to lose volume in certain parts of our face. This creates the ideal setup for lines and wrinkles. Injectables offer a way to reverse the effects of ageing and restore a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Botox is one of the best known and most popular injectables available. Botox is ideal for the treatment of moderate to severe crows feet and wrinkles between the eyebrows. The results from Botox typically appear between 24 to 48 hours after treatment occurs and last between 3 to 6 months.

The injectables used are FDA approved and have a high degree of safety when administered by a qualified injector. To ensure safe treatment it is important to look for an injector that is experienced and well qualified.
They need to have a clear understanding of how to administer the injections correctly, as well as identifying the correct dosage and frequency for your treatment. This will not only increase the safety but also the effectiveness of the treatment.
The exact length of time that results from the injectables will vary according to the individual recipient and the specific injectable used. Typically you can expect wrinkle and line reduction to last from between 3 – 12 months. After this time lines and wrinkles may begin to appear as the muscles action takes hold once again.
However, with treatment the muscles can learn to relax and thus the wrinkles that come back may be less deep and severe than before. Follow up treatment is consequently highly effective in quickly removing these lines and wrinkles. Individual factors effecting the effective length include age, smoking, level of sun damage, skin condition and facial structure.
