A common cause of wrinkles, is ageing, as our skin grows thinner, drier, and less elastic which causes us to develop wrinkles, creases, and lines. Expressions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting, are also one of the primary causes to the early appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These creases get more pronounced we age.
Wrinkles, creases, and lines are a natural part of ageing, but that doesn’t that you have to be stuck with them. At CuraMed Medical & Aesthetics, we understand that as the years pass by, we may start to feel that we aren’t as aesthetic as before, so we have a treatment that tackles the condition.
What is BTX and how does it work?
BTX is a treatment that has been used by doctors for many years to alleviate wrinkles and creases. It relaxes the muscles, and smoothes the skin on the applied area. Not just for wrinkles and creases, it is also used for jaw slimming.
This treatment is straightforward as it simply involves the introduction of BTX to certain areas where wrinkles or creases are prominent, It is also minimally invasive, and has little downtime.
