botox Botilinum Toxin Type A (a purified protein) is used to treat lines and wrinkles. There are two major components of facial ageing: Dynamic lines which are due to muscular hypertrophy and static lines which are due to volume loss. Botox® is injected in very small quantities into the facial muscles to relax them or soften the facial expression. Effects are usually seen five to ten days after the procedure and will last three to four months.

Recurrent treatment will lead to longer lasting effect and thereby less annual treatments will be necessary.
