At Mirabel Clinic we use a wrinkle relaxing solution to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and ‘crow’s feet’ at the side of the eyes. It involves a number of small injections of minute quantities of the product into the skin and takes a few minutes. The solution reduces muscle movement in the areas treated so that the skin stops creasing, allowing the lines to soften and fade. The treatment starts to take effect over 4-14 days and wears off after 2-6 months.
The wrinkle relaxing solution blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles in the areas treated for 2-6 months. It does not contain any animal products.
The treatment takes a few minutes and involves the injection of the product into the treated areas through a number of different puncture sites. There is virtually no recovery time, you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, and the muscle relaxation takes place over the following week or so.
The choice and amount of solution used depends on the site and depth of treatment and requires careful consideration by your practitioner during your consultation. At Mirabel we use BOTOX® . The treatment can be tailored to your requirements.
The same injections can be used to reduce embarrassing sweating under the arms. The treatment involves the administration of a number of small injections into the affected skin and typically lasts up to 6 months.
