How can Toxin injections reduce wrinkles, and where can it be used?
Wrinkle Reduction Treatment treatment involves strategically placing standardised injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A such as Botox® or Azzalure®, into targeted facial muscles.
The judgement of the practitioner in targeting the most appropriate facial muscles can provide dramatic results. The forced relaxation of the muscle can dramatically improve the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines, and crows feet lines around the eyes. It has been the most sought after non-surgical cosmetic treatment for some time.
Botulinum Toxin Type A provides effective treatment for the temporary relief of moderate to severe vertical lines between the brows (glabellar lines). It has also been found to be clinically effective in treating forehead and crows feet lines and is used widely for this purpose within the aesthetics industry. Botox® has a cosmetic license for use in the Glabellar and Crows Feet areas only, with all other use being considered off-license.
Botulinum Toxin Type A works by interrupting the nerves signals to the muscles thereby limiting their movement and reducing their wrinkling action on the skin. It contains tiny amounts of highly purified and sterile Botulinum Toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. Used in very small doses, the Toxin behaves differently in the skin than it does in the body.
