Q:What areas can be treated?
A: Botulinum Toxin (Type A)is the most widely used treatment in the U.K. and Ireland for smoothing wrinkles and facial lines mainly on the forehead, between the eyes (frown lines) at the top of the nose and around the eyes (crow’s feet.) The relaxation of the muscles responsible for the overlying wrinkles result in a more relaxed, fresher expression.
Q: How does Botulinum Toxin work?
A: Botulinum Toxin (Type A)is injected using tiny needles into the muscles of the face that are responsible for the line or wrinkle. It prevents the release of a chemical which is responsible for causing the muscle to contract. This will cause the muscle to relax thereby allowing the line or wrinkle to diminish or disappear so causing a natural, relaxed look. It can also help prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Yes- Botulinum Toxin (Type A)has been safely used within medical practice for over thirty years with no long- term side effects. It has been used for a multitude of muscle- relaxant treatments.
Q: What are the side effects?
A: Side effects are rare and temporary. The most common side effects are minor bruising and swelling at the injection sites. Other rare side effects include headaches and temporary drooping of the eyelids.
Q: How long will it last?
