Lines and wrinkles can be minimised by using a purified protein produced by Clostridium Botulinum (commonly known as BOTOX®, Dysport, Xeomin, Azzalure). Botulinum Toxin impedes nerve impulses to muscles that are responsible for the wrinkle lines. This relaxes these muscles so that they do not contract. This allows the skin to remain smooth and wrinkle free.
Botulinum is a substance that is produced by a bacteria. It is then refined, purified, diluted and used in therapeutic doses. Botulinum Toxin injections have been used safely for over twenty years to treat many neurological and ophthalmological disorders.
The results are usually seen within two to three days, with a marked improvement in wrinkle lines. The results will continue to improve for up to a month, and your skin will appear smoother. The results of the treatment last initially for up to four to six months. However with repeated treatments, the effect will last longer.
