What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
At Brighton Beauty bar we are proud to provide Anti-Wrinkle Injections in Brighton. Botulinum toxin has established itself as the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the world since its introduction into cosmetic practice in 1981.
Botulinum toxin, is a purified and natural protein used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles.
Transformative results can be achieved by applying Botulinum toxin injections into specific facial muscles, temporarily freezing them, and causing wrinkles to seem smoothed out. We offer our clients a wide variety of options for their cosmetic needs.
Side Effects of Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are is still one of the most popular treatments at Brighton Beauty Bar due to the short recovery time. While there will be some bruising, swelling and redness due to the nature of the treatment and using needles. This is expected to last for a few days post-treatment but is a natural part of the healing process and not a cause for concern . Clients are fine to resume normal activities post procedure.
What Results Can I Expect?
The varying procedures are used to smooth wrinkles and lines caused by ageing or natural facial expressions. We aim to give clients the most natural looking results as possible. As treatments vary between individuals, we say that results can last anything between three and six months. Botox can also be used to treat a variety of medical conditions too such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
