Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are the most common forms of onabotulinumA toxin used in cosmetic treatments for line and wrinkle reduction.

The treatment will begin with the doctor making a full assessment of your past medical history and current medications to ensure that you are suitable for treatment.

The treatment is carried out using very fine needles. The toxin is carefully placed in to the muscles which cause the lines and wrinkles to be treated. The treatment itself will take about 10 minutes.

After the treatment there may be some mild redness but this quickly fades (10-15 minutes). The effects of the toxin start about 72 hours after the injections and will build up over about 2 weeks. The wrinkles will continue to improve over about 3-4 weeks from the time of treatment.

In most patients the effects last 3-4 months before they wear off, the treatment should then be repeated.

Botulinum Toxin
How does it work?
What can be treated?

When onabotulinumA toxin is injected under the skin it causes a relaxation of the muscles of facial expression. As the skin is no longer being creased by the action of the muscles the lines and wrinkles soften and improve.
