At ‘Excellence Medical’, the treatments are carried out by Dr. Roy. We do not have nurse practitioners administering this treatment under supervision.
How do facial wrinkles develop?
Facial wrinkles develop due to constant over activity of facial muscles with associated repeated skin creasing over time. This is coupled with the slowdown of collagen and elastin production by skin with the ageing process.
How does the Anti-wrinkle treatment work?
The treatment relaxes overactive facial muscles, hence softening the skin crease lines that result from these hyperactive muscles. The procedure uses very small quantities of purified protein toxin from clostridium botulinum bacteria to inhibit the release of neurotransmitter acetyl-choline at the neuromuscular junctions to put specifically targeted small fascial muscles into temporary relaxation, or in other words a temporary state of sleep.
