V-Tox is a natural, purified protein that works as a muscle relaxant to smoothen the facial lines that appear due to muscle movement. V-Tox can be used for treatment of frown lines, crow's feet and other moderate-to-severe wrinkles. At all Health Sanctuary Clinics trained Dermatologists administer V-Tox doses based on the depth and severity of the wrinkles. A color management system color differences.
Face is cleansed as a pre-requisite to administering V-Tox. Next, V-Tox is administered in a few tiny injections in the area from where the wrinkles are to be treated. The process does not involve much pain than that of just a mild pin prick.
V-Tox temporarily relaxes the muscles of the affected area, so the expressions that lead to forming those wrinkles don't occur anymore. The effect can be seen in 2-3 days. The best thing is, it only works on the affected area and does not affect the other muscle responsible for other facial expressions. So, natural expression is maintained. It will not freeze facial expressions. It softens them and works only where one wants it to.
Is it safe?
V-Tox is perfectly safe for everyone. At Health Sanctuary, V-Tox is administered by qualified dermatologists. There have been no allergic reactions associated with V-Tox till date. The most common side effect is minor bruising, which is temporary. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease then you should postpone using V-Tox.
What happens during a V-Tox service?
During the service, a topical anesthetic cream is applied on the concerned area – this is done 1 hour before the service. After this, our trained dermatologist injects the required units of V-Tox depending on the area and extent of fine lines and muscle mass.
How long does the service take?
V-Tox is a lunch break fix. With this service it is possible to smoothen out your wrinkles in only one session. One session takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. Visible positive results are seen after one week from the session, the effects of which last for 5 – 6 months. However, since ageing is a continuous process, Health Sanctuary recommends maintenance sessions once a month. To maintain the younger look we recommend repeat sessions once in 5-6 months.
Do I need to take any precautions after the service?
V-Tox requires no special post service care. Cleanse the area gently. Direct exposure to strong sunlight should be avoided and a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 should be used regularly. We advise you to avoid rigorous scrubbing of the face, make up, and other beauty parlor services for half a day, post treatment. Facials and facial massages need to be avoided for a fortnight. Also avoid strenuous / gym exercise for a day.
