Male Wrinkle Smoothing

What is Wrinkle Smoothing

Wrinkle smoothing solutions are becoming increasingly popular. Allergan Vistabel?, or Botox as it is more commonly known, offers an effective treatment for expression or "worry" lines as well as crows feet and other facial lines. Offering a versatile way to improve skin texture and appearance, the treatment is particularly effective when used on the forehead and eye area. In fact, this treatment is quick, safe, versatile and virtually painless.

Procedure

At Nu Cosmetic Clinic only highly qualified Doctors and Nurses perform the procedure. A small amount of Vistabel? is injected to the affected area, using a very fine needle. An anaesthetic cream may be used in the minutes leading up to the procedure to reduce sensitivity, but most patients do not feel any pain. The anti-wrinkle injection works on the affected muscle group, discomfort is usually minimal and significant results can be seen from the first treatment.

Later Progress

Results can be seen in 3-7 days, with the maximum effect usually seen at around 7 days. Repeat treatment is often necessary every 3-4 months, although this varies on individual basis.

After the injection some swelling and redness can be expected, but this would gradually disappear within few days, sometimes as quickly as within the first 12 hours following the treatment. For those cases where deeper, more problematic lines exist, skin plumpers (also called dermal fillers) can provide a good alternative as they are designed to reach larger areas.

You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). There may be some bruising in the area so you may want to consider this if you are planning trips away or special days.

Are there any alternatives to this procedure?

Only wrinkle smoothing will stop the movement of the muscle and therefore the line worsening. Other procedures such as peels and dermal fillers can help lessen the appearance of lines and may be used in combination with wrinkle smoothing for a better result.

Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
