Wrinkles are lines, creases or folds in the skin. These wrinkles may appear on movement (dynamic lines) of the face or at rest (static lines) which may be a result of sun damage, skin ageing, smoking.
The first signs of aging start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Fine lines appear first, and over time wrinkles, a loss of volume and a loss of density become noticeable.

The treatment process
Onset of action within 2 weeks and duration of action will generally last for around 3 - 4 months. Botox may last considerably longer if used at an early age. Occasionally a touch up may be required and will usually take place 2 weeks after the first treatment.
An anaesthetic cream is not normally used.
It is used in low doses for the majority of therapy. Already it is used to treat certain medical conditions such as blepharospasm, bladder problems and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Possible mild injection site swelling and bruising may occur.
