Anti-Wrinkle Injections & Botox in Glasgow
We offer Botox treatments from our clinic in Glasgow.
Botox injections, commonly known as anti-wrinkle injections, are a type of wrinkle reduction treatment that has revolutionised our approach to facial ageing, particularly in the upper face. This anti-ageing treatment works by injecting tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles in the face, which causes the muscles to relax. This reduces the appearance of the overlying wrinkles.
Contrary to popular belief, Botox does not paralyse muscles, but rather, it relaxes them.
Often done in conjunction with dermal fillers (injectable facial fillers), the art of injecting Botox lies in altering the delicate balance between the muscles of facial expression to reduce lines and wrinkles. 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 injections is to weaken the muscles which pull the face down, enhancing the effect of the muscles which lift the face up – hence their other name as anti-wrinkle injections.
