botulinum toxin acts to relax the muscles in the treated areas, softening the frown lines. Deep lines may require treatment with dermal fillers.
Botulinum toxin has been used in cosmetic treatments for over 25 years on millions of patients. It is safe, cost effective, has few side effects and little down time.
It is virtually painless as the area is numbed with local anaesthetic cream.
Treatment takes from 10-20 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated, and initial results can be seen after two to four days when lines and wrinkles begin to smooth. The full effect can be seen in two weeks and results last from three to six months.
You can return to work the same day.
