One of the first signs of ageing which we tend to notice are the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As the years go by, we start to lose components in the skin which provide elasticity such as collagen and hyaluronic acid. Our anti wrinkle injections offer the perfect solution to this.
As these decrease, repetitive muscle movements such as smiling and frowning can cause lines to be visible at rest.
How Our Treatment Works
By relaxing these muscles with wrinkle relaxing medication, commonly known as Botox®, we can reduce the severity of these lines.
Dr. Martin Nimmo is a highly experienced provider of anti wrinkle injections, and always strives for a a natural appearance.
Ensuring a degree of movement is maintained to avoid a frozen or startled appearance.
Striving for subtle results, he will always aim to be conservative in his approach, and top up if required two weeks following treatment to avoid a ‘fake’ appearance.
