Anti-wrinkle Injections

Significantly soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and prevent them from worsening. This is achieved by blocking nerve activity in the muscles to cause a temporary reduction in their movement.

What is Botox?

Botox is a popular skin treatment derived from a purified form of the botulinum toxin, a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox is actually a brand name, just like Xerox was for photocopying in the past. When someone says they are interested in “botox” , we understand what they are asking us for but there are other options when it comes to this treament and at BioConnect we offer both the popular brand name as well as others  This treatment is primarily used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face as well as other conditions such as hyperhidrosis and bruxism.

Here’s how Botox works as a skin treatment:

      • Muscle relaxation: Anti-wrinkle treatment temporarily blocks the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, allowing the muscles to relax. When injected into specific facial muscles, it smooths out the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

      • Targeted areas: Anti-wrinkle treatment is commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), and frown lines between the eyebrows. It can also be used for other cosmetic concerns, such as lifting eyebrows or reducing the appearance of a gummy smile.

      • Quick procedure: These injections are typically quick, often taking only a few minutes per treatment area. The procedure is minimally invasive, with little to no downtime required. most people do not require any aesthetic but numbing cream can be used or self administered analgesia.

      • Temporary results: The effects of this treatment typically last between 3 to 6 months, after which the muscles regain their function and the wrinkles may reappear. Regular maintenance injections are needed to maintain the desired appearance.

      • Side effects: While anti-wrinkle injection is generally safe, some side effects may occur, such as bruising, swelling, or pain at the injection site. In rare cases, the toxin can spread to other parts of the body, causing more serious side effects. It’s important to consult a qualified medical professional for the proper administration and to minimize risks.
