Commonly known as Botox™ (Which is actually a trade name of one type of botulinum toxin, there are other types of this on the market) botulinum toxin type A is a naturally occurring bacterial protein.
Tiny doses of this substance are injected just under the skin in to the muscles that are treated to reduce wrinkles caused by frowning, raising the eyebrows and squinting. It specifically blocks the nerve impulse, allowing these muscles to relax which removes or improves wrinkles in the treated area.
The most common areas of the face are frown lines (1), crows’ feet (2) and the horizontal lines (surprise lines) that run across the forehead (3).
Treatment is tailored the individual to achieve a natural look.
Botox™ can also be used to prevent drooping of the eyebrows that are starting to become hooded with age by giving a subtle brow lift and an overall more “awake" look.
Results after treatment are seen after 2-3 days and full effect at around 2 weeks. It will typically last between 3-4 months.
A tiny needle is used with no requirement for anaesthetic or downtime.
