It’s a straightforward treatment where a small amounts of purified protein, commonly known as Botox, is gently injected into the area you wish to target using a very fine needle. The protein helps to reduce the effects of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles in your face and temporarily reducing the number of contractions in these problem areas. The result is younger looking, smoother skin, visible two or three days after your treatment.
After applying a numbing cream, your local Ballymoney clinician will administer a few tiny injections with small amounts of the purified protein under the skin. The number of injections you receive will depend on the areas that you wish to target, and will take around 15 minutes to complete.

Effects can last up to four months but you can maintain your youthful looking skin with regular top ups – in fact regular use of anti-wrinkle injections mean that you require fewer top ups.
