Botulinum Toxin – The most requested aesthetic wrinkle treatment in the world!
As we grow older lines appear on our face which can become a concern, most noticeable areas are smile lines around the eyes, frown and forehead lines.
These expression lines are caused by everyday facial movements and muscular hyperactivity.
WHAT IS BOTULINUM TOXIN AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Botulinum Toxin is a very pure preparation of protein, botulinum toxin type A. When small doses are injected into muscles, Botulinum Toxin blocks the signals of the nerves that causes muscles to contract, but over 6 to 12 weeks new nerve endings grow to replace them.
Botulinum Toxin relaxes muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles and negative facial expressions to maintain a natural, refreshed and relaxed appearance.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT WITH BOTOLINUM TOXIN?
Botulinum Toxin must only be injected by healthcare professionals with specific skills on how to use the medicine.
Using a very fine needle, your doctor will inject a small amount of a solution of Botulinum Toxin into specific muscle groups.
Injections are relatively painless with little-to-no downtime.
A treatment session takes around 15 to 30 minutes.
