Dr Preema performs the injectable muscle relaxing treatments. Wrinkle relaxing treatments (botulinum toxin type A) are available by prescription only. She uses Botox® by Allergan and Azzalure® by Galderma.
These act to relax local muscles such as those which create certain lines and grooves.
The “crows feet”
The “horizontal worry lines” of the forehead
The “frown lines” in between the eyebrows (number 11′s)
The “bunny lines”
The “dimpling chin”
Botulinum Toxin can also be injected to slim the lower face, improve teeth grinding, create a jaw line lift (the “Nefriti Lift”), tighten and smooth the skin over the neck, reduce sweating/ perspiration (hyperhidrosis) in areas such as the underarms.
This treatment takes 1-10 days to take effect and lasts from 3-6 months.
A follow up appointment is always offered between 2-4 weeks as treatment can take up to 2 weeks to take effect.
