Cosmetic Injectables tailored to you and your concerns.
Botox® Cosmetic treatments are one of the most popular treatments available at NEOMO SKIN and are used to address both medical and cosmetic needs.
Performed by our experienced team of Nurses and Physicians, Cosmetic Injectables are a quick, affordable, and effective way to help reduce and prevent wrinkle formation that provides natural-looking results, creating a refreshed and youthful look.
Why do wrinkles form?
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. With age, our skin gets thinner and drier and we lose elastin. The ability of our skin to protect itself is reduced as we age. Eventually, wrinkles, creases, and lines form on our skin.
Continuous muscle contraction is also another major contributor to facial wrinkles. Continuous muscle movement causes 'dynamic wrinkles' which only appear when the muscle is used.
Over time, if untreated, these wrinkles can become 'static wrinkles' which means they become permanently etched in our skin.
How do cosmetic injections work?
Whilst the face is in motion the lines that appear are known as dynamic wrinkles, however, repeated movement over time forms deeper lines and folds known as static wrinkles. Cosmetic Injectables work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle.
The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative measure.
Cosmetic Injectables are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax, softening lines and wrinkles and reducing the severity of visible wrinkles.
Individual results may vary. A consultation before the first treatment is required, so please notify us of any health conditions or medical history during this appointment. This information will ensure your individual needs are assessed and that appropriate guidance is given.
While Cosmetic Injectables are a relatively time-friendly and convenient treatment, it can take up to 14 days for you to see the full effect visible. Something to remember when you’re timing your treatment for a special event.
Depending on the sensitivity of your skin and any medications (like aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood thinners) you may be taking, there is the chance of temporary, minor side effects including
Mild swelling at or around the injection site
Mild tenderness or bruising at or around the injection site
Tiny red dots at the injection site
A mild headache, depending on the treatment area
