Botulinum toxin or ‘Botox’ works by relaxing specific muscles that cause wrinkles. Botulinum toxin mainly works on wrinkles that are cause by movement (dynamic wrinkles).
The treatment is quick, and once the Botulinum toxin takes full effect after two weeks the results can be amazing. There is a lot of myths surrounding ‘Botox’ injections and many overdone treatments (frozen look), which have put off some people, however when the Botulinum toxin treatment is carried out with skill and with a view to maximising your natural looks, the treatment is awesome.
Due to how Botulinum toxin works it is a fantastic preventative measure for wrinkles. If you are relaxing the muscles that cause movement they are less likely to turn into wrinkles.
If your wrinkles are from natural ageing and loss of volume in the lower face, we recommend dermal fillers, as they restore the volume naturally and the results last twice as long.
