Botulinum toxin A is used to treat a number of conditions within the body. It works by partially blocking nerve impulses which stimulate the associated muscle thus causing temporary muscle relaxation.
Its use in aesthetic medicine is to help smooth your skin by injecting the muscle underlying the skin. As the muscle relaxes, the overlying skin softens thereby reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
These treatments are commonly performed in the upper face and areas around the lips, the chin and neck to combat the signs of ageing.
Treatment to this area can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles to give a more youthful fresh look
The effects of injections are visible within 5-14 days after treatment and can last up to 3-9 months

These are the lines seen between your eyebrows and the surrounding area. With time these lines can become deeper and give you a more ‘stressed’ look. A simple injection to this area softens the appearance of these lines to give a more relaxed, neutral expression.
Wrinkles around the corner of your eyes may be softened to give you a youthful appearance. Often combined with a brow lift to give the ultimate fresh look.
Laughter is the best medicine but sometimes this can cause wrinkling around the upper side of the nose. These can be reduced by injecting into the area.
Also known as orange peel chin is caused by expressive flexing of the chin muscles. Treating this area smooths the chin and removes the uneven appearance.
