Botulinum toxin is used to treat lines and wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and also for brow elevation.
The treatment takes 10-15 minutes and involves tiny injections, using a very fine needle, into specific muscles depending on which areas concern you and what Dr Hallam recommends for the best outcome.
Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, resulting in a fresher appearance and the results last for 3-6 months.
“I am so pleased with the results of my Botox & filler treatment. I cannot thank you enough Dr Hallam & the lovely Joanna for making me feel comfortable throughout my treatment. You have made me smile with the results. What a lovely friendly clinic to visit too.”
Botox® (botulinum toxin type A) is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria. It was developed in the 1980s to treat blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids) and strabismus (squints) and subsequently it’s use for cosmetic purposes was developed by Canadian doctors Alastair and Jean Corruthers.
Over 3 million treatments per year worldwide are now carried out.
Botulinum toxin has been used since the 1980s and it has been extensively researched. Serious side effects are extremely rare and it is considered very safe.
After-effects may include redness at the injection site, which quickly resolves, and since it involves the use needles there is always a risk of minor bruising.
Rare side effects include headaches and brow ptosis (dropping of the eyebrow) but this can usually be corrected and will return to normal as the effect of the toxin wears off.
Botulinum toxin is used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and also to lift the brow. It can also be used to treat headaches and migraines, excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), for facial slimming and to reduce the prominent muscle bands in the neck.
There is a noticeable reduction in wrinkles after 5-7 days and the full effects are 2 weeks after treatment.
The results usually last for 3-5 months.
