Is it a toxin and what is it made of?
Botulinum Toxin is a prescription only medicine made from tiny amounts of a highly purified protein produced from the bacterium ‘Clostridium botulinum’. It is classed as a neurotoxin.
Is it safe?
Botulinum Toxin injections have safely been used for many years to treat lines and wrinkles and also to manage many neurological and ophthalmological conditions. Tens of thousands of people have received Botulinum Toxin to relieve a variety of conditions.
What products do you use ?
Botox® is a tradename of the Botulinum Toxin marketed by Allergan, and we use this product in our clinic. Azzalure is another preparation of Botulinum Toxin that is also used in our clinic.
How does it work?
Botulinum Toxin relaxes the facial muscles that are connected to expression lines. It does this by blocking impulses from the nerve endings to the tiny facial muscles. The skin starts to relax and overtime as the movement can no longer take place the lines soften and in many cases disappear
