Muscle relaxing anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures.
At River Aesthetics, we use Botox® or Azzalure, which are both names for the botulinum toxin type A (commonly known as ‘botox’), a protein which temporarily causes muscles to relax and prevent wrinkles. This treatment has been used medically for over 30 years and can also work as a preventative measure.
We use anti-wrinkle injections to soften the frown lines between the eyebrows and the forehead, and also around the crow’s feet area of the eyes, helping to restore a refreshed appearance.
At River Aesthetics we aim for a softer, more natural look which allows us to achieve a significant line improvement while maintaining normal facial expression.
Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat excessive sweating (known as hyperhidrosis) by giving injections to the armpit area, and to help with teeth grinding, jaw line contouring and reducing gummy smiles.
How long does it last?
Botox treatments last approximately 3 to 6 months, depending on the area injected. Only the injected muscles are affected (so you can maintain normal expression) and they will recover completely once the treatment wears off naturally.
Nefertiti Neck Lift
Inspired by the elegant swan-like neck of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, botulinum toxin can be used to prevent the muscles in the lower face and neck pulling down the lower face.
This results in an upward movement of the skin to reduce sagging jowls and creates a more defined jawline and a more youthful neck contour.
