What is Botox®?

The muscles of facial animation are what can overtime give the lines and wrinkles that may give an aged appearance to the face. One of the most effective non-surgical approaches is the paralyzation of these muscles to give a more youthful look. This can be achieved by varies products including but not limited to Botulinum toxin (Type A)® and Dysport®.

These are injections that aim to block the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. By injecting these products the net effect is the relaxation and smoothing of the look of lines and wrinkles.

Areas that are most commonly injected;

  • Between the brow
  • Crows-feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead creases
