Botulinum Toxin is administered by injecting into specific facial areas where it blocks the nerve transmission to selectively paralyse the muscle. The commonly used preparations for wrinkle treatments are Botox, Dysport , Vistabel and Azzalure.
Botulinum Toxin is effective in improving lines or wrinkles due to facial expressions. For example worry lines or frown lines on the forehead and between the eyebows.
In most cases the treatment will take between 10 and 20 minutes. Insulin syringes are used to inject the medication and only a small amounts are used. As a result any discomfort is usually shortlived. It takes 7 to 10 days for the muscle paralysis to manifest.
3 weeks after the first treatment, the effects are reviewed by us at which time any further treatments are discussed or a top up is provided.
Unlike some surgical facelifts, this kind of treatment is very specific and only works on those muscles that are involved in producing the facial lines.
Other muscles are unaffected and this means that the usual facial expressions will be unchanged.
Initially the effects of Botulium Toxin lasts from 3 to 4 months after which time the nerve supplying the facial muscles sends out new sprouts and regenerates. With repeated treatments the effects can last a month ot two longer.
