Wrinkle Management is commonly referred to as “B.tox.”, short for a naturally occurring, purified protein (Botulinum Toxin), which is administered in tiny amounts into the facial muscles. It is a clinically proven and effective treatment, which aims to soften fine lines and wrinkles and restore a more youthful brighter appearance by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles. Yiannis prides himself on his bespoke skin consultation, extended treatment time and less traumatic technique giving great results with mild to minimum side effects.
B.tox. can be used for treatment of the following areas:
- Forehead lines, frown lines, wrinkles around the eyes (Upper Face)
- Bunny lines on the nose
- Jaw slimming
- Gummy smile
- Hypertrophic masseter (Bruxism)
- Neck-Platysma (horizontal lines and vertical bands around the neck)
- Hyperhidrosis – Excessive sweating (armpits)
- Summary of treatment
The treatment with B.tox. takes no more than few minutes and involves a series of small injections into the facial muscles. It is mostly pain free however topical anaesthetic can be applied upon request. Following the treatment redness, irritation, discomfort and tingling might develop at the site of injections. These are common side effects of mild severity that usually resolve in 30 to 60 min. although not everybody gets them. Visible improvement of lines/wrinkles should be noticeable within the first 2 to 3 days, however it could take up to 2 weeks to see full results. The results can last up to 3-4 months and may vary with each patient.
