Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles
For many people, facial lines and wrinkles are a great source of insecurity. Zulu Medical Cosmetics aims to erase those insecurities through injectables like Botox® and Dysport®.
How do Botox & Dysport Work?
The skin on your face is stretched across facial muscles. As your muscles move, the skin stretched over them shifts and folds. When the skin folds repeatedly on a regular basis, creases start to appear in those folds, causing what we call wrinkles.
Both Botox® and Dysport® are injectable treatments made from the botulinum A toxin. When injected into specific facial muscles, the toxin has a temporary freezing effect; blocking commands for movement from reaching the muscle for a period of weeks. Because the muscle has stopped forcing the skin to fold, the crease starts to smooth out, giving your face a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
Neither Botox® or Dysport® are permanent, however, you are unlikely to need treatment more often than every three months. You will most likely start to notice the effects of Botox within a few days.
