Botulinum toxin works by relaxing facial muscles thus preventing the muscle from contracting and creating a “wrinkle”
The muscles we want to relax are specifically targeted and treated. These include the muscles of the frown, forehead or the crows feet..
These effects can take from 2 days to 2 weeks to be apparent and typically last up to 12 weeks, though many people feel it lasts longer. Longevity is usually dependant on the amount injected and the area treated and of course the person injected.
The majority of people treated suffer no side effects from their treatments.
If you stop having treatments the muscles will return to their original state, as will the ‘wrinkles’ eventually.
The treatments are quick and simple. A very tiny needle is used to introduce the neurotoxin of choice to the muscle. Pain is very minimal and brief. You can go about your daily life straight after your treatment.
