Anti-wrinkle Injections (Botox)
Botulinum Toxin A, commonly referred to as Botox®, is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments these days. The treatment targets the muscles causing frown lines and creases, especially around the upper part of your face. There are many brands on the market, but they all essentially contain the Botulinum toxin A. It is classified as an injectable muscle relaxant. Botulinum Toxin A is a safe prescription-only medication, which means it has been through extensive safety testing.
What are the overall advantages of treatment with Botulinum Toxin A?
- Reduces or eliminates wrinkles, horizontal frown lines and creases without surgery
- Almost pain free
- Minimizes the look of crows’ feet and laughter lines
- Effects are customizable and reversible
- Some patients report they no longer get migraine headaches
What is the best age to start Botulinum Toxin treatments?
The best time to consider having a consultation about Botulinum Toxin A is when you begin to notice that your dynamic lines (frown lines) have become static. This usually happens in your early 30’s, however it differs from person to person, thanks to genetic and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure.
How is Botulinum Toxin administered?
Tiny quantities of the toxin are injected directly into the affected muscles. The needle used to inject Botox is tiny and most find the procedure almost painless. The treated muscles weaken over the following week or so. Most people do not notice anything. They simply become aware that they are no longer able to contract the frown muscles but can still lift their eyebrows normally and blink without problems.
How long does the treatment last?
The effect of botulinum toxin A does wear off but retreatment is not usually needed for three to six months and after that can be repeated as required. Many people find after three or four sessions that they don’t need another one for a longer time because the muscles have markedly weakened.
Is Botulinum Toxin A used just for wrinkles?
Botulinum toxin was actually first developed as a treatment for neurological disorders, not as a cosmetic treatment. In addition to fine lines and wrinkles other conditions can be treated.

Is Botulinum Toxin A dangerous or harmful?
Botulinum toxin is derived from a bacterium called clostridium botulinum, which can become harmful to humans by causing a form of food poisoning called Botulism. Rest assured, the tiny amounts used for medical and cosmetic procedures do not cause any harm.
Is Botulinum Toxin A something only women get?
No, not at all. More and more men these days enjoy the effects of this treatment.
