Wrinkle Relaxation Therapy
The products provided in our wrinkle relaxation therapy have been used within medicine for many years due to their vast number of applications. As well as treating increased perspiration, overactive bladders and releasing tight tendons in children with cerebral palsy it has become a very popular minimally invasive facial aesthetics treatment.
The procedure enables the relaxation of fine lines and wrinkles without surgical intervention and minimum downtime. The treatment works by blocking the nerve signals to certain facial muscles so they are unable to contract, resulting in a smoother appearance of the affected area.
Treatment generally takes a few minutes to carry out with little or no downtime and the effects can start to be seen within 72 hours although it takes up to two weeks for the full result to appear.
The effects of wrinkle relaxation therapy vary from one person to another although usually last between 3 and 6 months. Some research has shown that with repeated treatment the interval between procedures becomes longer.
