chemically derived toxin that has been used over the years to counteract various muscular issues. Most popularly, it is utilized as an aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
Botulinum Toxin, sometimes referred to as "Botox" by patients, is a popular injectable that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases and crow's feet near the side of the eyes. Several other areas have been treated such as thick bands in the neck, thick jaw muscles, lip lines and gummy smiles.
As we get older, fine lines and wrinkles are inevitable and are often the largest indicator of ageing and these signs of ageing can be combated through Anti-Wrinkle treatment. However, that’s not all they are used for! Anti wrinkle injections can also be used to prevent excessive sweating in the underarms, hands and feet. 1 in 30 people are affected by excessive sweating, and it can lead to feeling embarrassed in social situations if their condition is difficult to manage.
Excessive sweating can occur even when you’re not overly hot in temperature, nor taking part in exercise and the usual shop-bought deodorants and anti-perspirants can be a useless preventative.
Anti-wrinkle treatments work by temporarily preventing muscles from contracting. For the underarms, the injections block the nerves that are responsible for your sweat glands. It only stops the nerves that are directly injected, so therefore will reduce the amount of active sweat glands and leave you feeling more confident and comfortable when you’re sweat free!
The results usually last for a period of around 6-9 months before the effect wears off naturally.
Instead of filling the lines like how a dermal filler treatment would, it prevents the skin from creasing and wrinkling at the source. For this reason, anti-wrinkle injections can also be used as a preventative treatment, to stop the occurrence of these wrinkles forming.

Anti-wrinkle injections, as the name suggests, is a treatment which promotes a smoother and more youthful appearance. It consists of a series of injections, which are used to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines by repeated muscle movement.
Botulinum toxin is a purified substance that's derived from bacteria. Injections of botulinum toxin block the nerve signals to the muscle in which it was injected. Without a signal, the muscle is not able to contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles or appearance.
Botulinum toxin can be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures—such as chemical peels, laser treatments, dermal fillers or microdermabrasion—to further improve your results. This combination of therapies can even help to prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
This neurotoxin is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. C. botulinum elaborates eight antigenically distinguishable exotoxins (A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F and G). All serotypes interfere with neural transmission by blocking the release of acetylcholine, the principal neurotransmitter at the neuromuscular junction, causing muscle paralysis.
The weakness induced by injection with our botulinum toxin usually lasts about six to nine months. Botulinum toxins now play a very significant role in the management of a wide variety of medical conditions, especially strabismus and focal dystonias, hemifacial spasm, and various spastic movement disorders, headaches, hypersalivation, hyperhidrosis, and some chronic conditions that respond only partially to medical treatment.
The cosmetological applications include correction of lines, creases and wrinkling all over the face, chin, neck, and chest to dermatological applications such as hyperhidrosis. Injections are generally well tolerated and side effects are few. A precise knowledge and understanding of the functional anatomy of the mimetic muscles is absolutely necessary to correctly use botulinum toxins in clinical practice.
The toxin requires 24 to 48 hours to take effect, reflecting the time necessary to disrupt the synaptosomal process. In very rare circumstances, some individuals may require as many as 3 to 5 days for the full effect to be observed.
