Botulinum Toxin is a purified substance that's derived from bacteria. Commonly known types of botulinum toxin type A.
Injections include Botox and Dysport.
Botulinum toxin A injections are used to soften lines creating a smoother more youthful, fresher appearance. So-called, hyperkinetic wrinkles, result from recurring contraction of the muscles of facial expression. Botox is injected into specific areas of facial muscles to limit their contraction. Consequently the overlying skin does not 'fold' or crease resulting in a smoothing effect.
We rely on our facial muscles to communicate our emotions through our facial expressions. The intention of a Botulinum Toxin Type A treatment is not an expressionless face. Whilst it is beneficial to soften lines It is equally important to avoid a frozen, unnatural appearance. My objective is to find a balance between these two.
The results are particularly gratifying when used in conjunction with a skin care program as a smooth, wrinkle free complexion, creates a picture of freshness and youth.
