Botox Cardiff

Aging of our face relates to loss of skin elasti­city and recoil (skin bounce), loss of fat volume on the face and bony changes of aging.

While we have been doing the same expres­sions of anger and worry since we were chil­dren, this loss of skin elasti­city starts to leave behind wrinkles along the expres­sion lines.

When you come in for your wrinkle consulta­tion Dr Prashant can discuss the use of some prescrip­tion only medi­cines that are a form of recon­sti­t­uted Botulinum Toxin Type A.

Tiny doses of this molecule are injected into the muscles on the fore­head that cause the worry lines, frown lines or crows feet (around the eyes), the muscles are tempor­arily weakened leaving you with the appear­ance of smoother wrinkle free skin.

This smoothening effect can last for 4 – 6 months in most patients, helping you to main­tain a fresh, youthful vibrant look.

Other applic­a­tions of these injec­tions include Jaw Slimming, Smile Balancing, Non-Surgical or Liquid Facelift, and redu­cing Platysmal or neck bands.

The dura­tion of effect depends on the dose admin­istered and also the strength of the muscle to be treated, while most patients will need a booster at 3–4 months, some­times the effects can be made to last for up to 6 months.
