Botulinum toxin also know as Botox can be used to treat lines that are created when you frown, smile or raise your eyebrows in surprise. It can also be used on lines that are static (are present even when you aren't using the muscle). The product works by relaxing the muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles.
Muscle relaxants should only be administered by an experienced medical clinician who will ensure the correct amount is placed proportionatley in the right areas to ensure the desired look is achieved, whether that be the "frozen" look or softer expression lines. We only use FDA approved products such as Botox and Bocouture. The amount of correction required, lifestyle and area of the face will all vary the longevity results and results of treatment. Once injected, it can take up to 2 weeks for the results to take place and last up to 4 months, howver some people will start to regain some movement between 10-12 weeks.
