Freeze your forehead, frown lines and crows feet with beauty toxin. This technique is to improve the appearance of “worry lines”, “frown lines”, “crows feet” and “laugh lines”.
Following treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled whilst untreated facial muscles contract normally, leaving normal facial expressions unaffected.
This technique is a simple and safe procedure, a very small amount of this toxin is injected into several muscles in the face, because only a small amount of liquid is used, the discomfort associated with the injections is minimal.
The effects of the treatment can last from 3-4 months, so you will need to have the injections about three times a year, however, clinical trials suggest that the duration of the benefits increase with time, so that you may only require injections infrequently in the future.
This toxin is sometimes used in the treatment of excessive sweating by (Hyperhydrosis) applied by an experienced consultant surgeon.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Freezing injections have been used in many forms of medical and wrinkle treatments for a number of years now. Bruising around the treated area is uncommon, as are transient headaches. Drooping is avoided by following the recommended aftercare instructions.
Do I Need To Take Any Precautions Before Treatment?
- You should not have freezing beauty toxin treatments if:
- You are pregnant or breast feeding
- You have an allergy to botulinium toxin
- You have myasthenia gravis
- You have neuromuscular disease
- You have an allergy to human albumin
How Often Will I Need Wrinkle Treatment?
Treatment will last 3-4 months depending on skin type, area treated and how many previous treatments you have had. There is some evidence to suggest that the duration of benefits do improve with time and future treatments will last longer.
Is It Painful?
You may feel a small amount of discomfort during the treatment, but it is a very quick procedure.
What About Aftercare?
After treatment you should not massage the treated area, this may cause the freezing beauty toxin to spread to the muscles around the eyes. Try to exercise the muscles for 5 hours after the treatment, this helps the freezing beauty toxin to attach to the muscles, also no lying down or leaning forward for a few hours after the treatment. It can take 5-10 days for the treated areas to soften.
