Facial expressions such as smiling, frowning and squinting can cause repeated creasing of the skin, and over time and as we age, these lines can become permanent.
As well as offering treatment with Dermal Fillers, in certain situations, Jackie may recommend the use of the prescription-only medication Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) to tackle dynamic facial wrinkles, such as those around the eyes. Botulinum Toxin is a ‘wrinkle relaxing’ treatment that works to block the chemical signals between the nerves and the muscle that specifically controls the movement that causes the skin to crease, but still allows for some natural expression. This reduces the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles, and can prevent new lines from forming for up to 6 months.
As a qualified and experienced Independent Nurse Prescriber, Jackie is also able to create a ‘brow lift’ with advanced Botulinum Toxin treatment techniques.
