The Art of Injecting Botox
We offer Botox treatments from our clinic in Glasgow.
Botox injections are a type of wrinkle reduction treatment which has revolutionised our approach to facial ageing, particularly in the upper face. The treatment works by injecting tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles in the face which causes the muscles to relax, and reduces the appearance of the overlying wrinkles. Botox injections can be prescribed when the appearance of the lines and wrinkles are associated with pyschological symptoms in adult patients.
Contrary to popular belief, Botox does not paralyse muscles but rather it relaxes them.
The art of injecting Botox lies in altering the delicate balance between the muscles of facial expression. These muscles can broadly be divided into two main groups: those which lift the face up and those which pull the face down. The goal of using Botox is to weaken the muscles which pull the face down, enhancing the effect of the muscles which lift the face up.
