Anti-wrinkles treatment is the most popular Non-Surgical Facial Transformation treatment. The toxin used is extremely effective in reducing deep wrinkles – and preventing new wrinkles from forming
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium makes several different types of protein which are called type A to type F. These varying proteins cause muscles to relax at different levels.
Our facial expressions change because the muscles in the face contract or relax.
This is caused by the brain sending a signal via our nerve endings that we want to, for example, frown or laugh. When botulinum toxin is injected into a specific muscle it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles in the face. This means that the nerve ending cannot tell the muscle to move. This is not a permanent condition, however, but it will last for around 3 – 4 months.
No More Bunny Lines
Bunny lines formed by flexing the upper fibers of the nasalis muscle on the lateral nose and contribution from the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi muscles. Appear when you scrunch up your nose, such as when you laugh or smile deeply.
While bunny lines can simply be caused by aging, they can also be a telltale sign that you’ve had anti-wrinkles treatment. In either case, the underlying cause is the same: the overuse of certain facial muscles. Anti-wrinkles injections is an effective and non-invasive way to minimise the appearance of bunny lines.
Frontalis, Glabellar and Crow’s feet
The most common dynamic wrinkles that anti-wrinkles treatment can treat are lines on the upper face, such as the Glabellar area between the brows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Other area on the Upper Face suitable for treatment:
Mini Brow Lift
Look more awake and fresher
An Anti-wrinkles brow lift is a type of procedure that treats frown lines between your brows. It also elevates the height of your eyebrows with this toxin injections. These shots work by relaxing underlying muscles to smooth your skin on the outside and relaxing the muscles between the brows. This allows the forehead muscles to pull up the now-relaxed muscles between the brows, thereby elevating the brows and opening up the eyes. You’ll look more awake and fresher.
Anti-wrinkles and HA fillers can be used to treat the lower face for a variety of indications.
For complete highly desirable aesthetic outcome, botox and dermal fillers are commonly used together. Anti-wrinkles is used to promote relaxation and restriction of movement of the underlying muscles, and dermal fillers are used for restoring volume and support for deeper soft tissues. In general, both botulinum toxin and dermal fillers, inexperienced and knowledgeable hands, are very safe.
Procedural awareness, injection technique and skill is key, as well as a sound understanding of the patient’s anatomy and a good, careful, medical and treatment history will help to ensure good patient selection. Therefore consultation with thorough assessment is highly recommended prior to treatments.
Diamond Shaped Face ~ Diamond is Girls’ BFF
A strong, square jawline can be distinctly masculine and desirable in male patients but many female patients are seeking softer more feminized shape to their face – Diamond Shape.
This Condition is due to Masseter Hypertrophy (bulking of muscles for chewing/mastication). We often see this on people who suffer from excessive teeth grinding – Bruxism too. The great news is it’s treatable with botox which only takes 10minutes.
Anti-wrinkles treatment for jaw reduction is a specialized technique to reduce the width of the jawline changing an overly square jawline to a more attractive oval or diamond-shaped face. This treatment selectively weakens this muscle over time leading to an overall reduction in the size of this muscle. Anti-wrinkle injections can effectively soften your jaw in the case of masseter hypertrophy commonly caused by bruxism. As a result, one can achieve a slimmer-looking jawline within a week or two which should last for 3 to 4 months.

BoNT-A for Chronic Migraines
Botulinum toxin A to prevent migraines – guidance published in May 2012 by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). NICE recommends that BoNT-A can be considered as an option for the prevention of headaches for people who have chronic migraine (headaches on at least 15 days of every month, at least eight days of which are migraine) that has not responded to at least three prior preventative drug treatments.
The reasons why Botox might aid migraine are not clear, and several theories have been put forward. At various points it has been suggested that:
- Botox might relax muscles around the head and thereby reduce blood pressure within the brain
- Botox might reduce the nerves’ ability to send pain signals during a migraine
- Botox might prevent the nerves from sending signals that will lead to a migraine
One treatment lasts for 10-12 weeks, and patients reported that two Botox treatments reduced the number of headache days by approximately 50%.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating of Armpits)
Hyperhidrosis also is known as Excessive sweating, is a medical condition characterized by over-activation of sweat glands.
Can affect any part of the body but is most common in the armpits, craniofacial area, feet and hands. This BoNT-A treatment targets sweating at its source. In Likha, a quick test will be carried out to confirm the target areas. The areas will be marked and topical anesthetic cream will then applied to ensure comfort during the procedure. BoNT-A will be injected safely and superficially into both underarms. BoNT-A will move toward the sweat glands, where it will reduce the contraction of surrounding muscles – thus reducing sweating.
Post-injection, you can expect to notice the treatment working within four to six days. Within one week, you should notice a significant reduction in the amount of sweat produced in your affected areas. In clinical studies, patients were found to experience up to 87% reduction in sweating within the first seven days post-treatment. Treatment will last for 6 months on average.
“Gummy smile” (smile shows 4 mm or more of gum tissue) which the upper gums are too prominent, is a common condition ~ Excessive gingival display, or is a cosmetic condition that occurs when the upper gums are too prominent when smiling.
If tooth to gum proportionality is normal, then the cause may be upper lip movement. When we smile, muscles cause our lips to retract 6-8 mm from the lip’s resting position. If the amount of movement is greater (meaning the lip is hypermobile), it may show too much of the gums. The upper jaw can also extend too far forward and cause the gums to appear too prominent.
Anti-wrinkles treatment has been shown to effectively treat the appearance of a gummy smile and is a much more manageable procedure to receive than surgery.
The average treatment cost in the US is $350 and is charged as a professional fee for the treatment instead of per unit due to the expertise required for this type of treatment.
