Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring protein, Clostridium Botiulinum, which can relax muscles.
It has more recently been used for cosmetic procedures, and to treat hyperhydrosis, (excessive sweating), but has been used for many years for various medical conditions.
Over time lines and wrinkles can develop around the eyes, known as crows feet, between the brows as frown lines and on the forehead
Botulinum Toxin is an effective and safe method of relaxing the muscles and reducing and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Full effects are usually seen a few days after treatment, and any side effects are usually minor.
About the Treatment
The results tend to last 3-4 months but with repeated treatments the effects tend to last longer and less frequent treatments are required to maintain the effect.
After an initial assessment the procedure will involve injecting the affected areas with small amounts of Botulinum Toxin using very fine needles. The treatment is quick, taking only a few minutes, with minimal discomfort.
There is no 'downtime' after the treatment and you can continue your routine as normal other than following a few simple guidelines for the next few hours
