Over time wrinkles develop due to a number of factors including age, sun exposure, diet, smoking and lifestyle. However if a person habitually frowns, scrunches up her/his brow, nose or purses ones lips, these actions promote the development of further wrinkles. Botox® is ideal for those who have frown lines, forehead lines or Crow’s Feet. The treatment is injected directly into the wrinkles with a tiny needle which results in temporarily relaxing the facial muscles and preventing the formation of wrinkles, whilst existing lines are softened. Ideal for anti-wrinkle and ageing skin.
Botulinum Toxin and Botox®
Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin produced by the Botulinum Clostridium Botulinum. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at the junction below the nerve and the muscle resulting in the decreased activity and weakness of the affected muscles. Botox® injections and/or dermal fillers are ideal treatments. Botox® is a brand name for Botulinum Toxin A.
Toxins were first approved for use in medicine for the treatment of muscle disorders, muscle spasms and squint.
Its main use in aesthetic medicine lies in its ability to weaken or paralyse facial muscles and thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles to the overlying skin. These cause ‘dynamic’ wrinkles. ie wrinkles that can be visualised on contraction of the muscles. These are different to ‘static’ wrinkles which are present at rest. The ‘dynamic’ wrinkles respond very well to treatment with toxins.
The most commonly treated areas are the brow, frown lines, Crow’s Feet dimpling of the chin and bunch scrunch lines of the nose. Other areas include the neck bands and corners of the mouth.
The effect of toxins is only temporary and usually lasts 3-4 months. The first course of treatment may last for a shorter period of time but the effects last longer after a number of treatments.
Results can be seen within 4-15 days. The effect gives a lovely refreshed look which is discrete.
