Botulinum Toxin Type A is a neurotoxin that when injected, blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle, by trimming the nerve endings, reducing or stopping the muscle contraction temporarily. This temporary relaxation of the muscle means that the skin no longer creases, making wrinkles fade or disappear altogether.
Once BTX is injected into the body it only sticks around for 48 hours. During this time, it trims the receptors of the muscles that have been injected. These receptors, which receive messages from the brain telling the muscle to move gradually, grow back over a period of several months. During the time that the muscles are relaxed, the skin in this area has chance to heal, and lines to soften. Done well, the effect is a subtle, natural improvement. The results aren’t immediate, it is usually after 2 to 5 days that you start to notice the effect, which is at its best after 2 weeks. Movement usually starts to reappear after about 8 weeks and you can have a treatment at week 12 if you wish.
Gone are the days where people wanted a “frozen” look, now botulinum toxin is used to soften lines, whilst retaining natural movement of the muscles. A thorough consultation will be carried out to ascertain what you want to achieve and the look you are after.
