Our aesthetic nurse is a very experienced cosmetic injector so in her capable hands it is not only the upper face and crow’s feet that can benefit from this treatment.
Botulinum Toxin A can also be used effectively to tighten the jaw line (Nefertiti face lift), lift the corners of the mouth, correct gummy smiles and smokers lines around your mouth, smooth lines around the neck and the cobblestone appearance some people have on the chin.
Over time crow’s feet, frown lines and other expression lines become deeper and more permanent. These are caused by subconscious nerve signals sent to your brain telling your muscles to contract when you laugh, frown or squint. Botulinum Toxin A can be injected in tiny amounts in to specific muscles which stop the nerve signal reaching the brain and thus prevent wrinkle formation. Whilst this prevents the dynamic lines that occur on movement, deeper, static lines will only become smoother. Often the crease of the line will still be visible and this would then benefit from a fine dermal filler to erase.
The human body is a wonderful thing and over time, approximately 3 to 4 months, Botulinum Toxin A is absorbed and excreted, the nerves regenerate and full facial expression is resumed. Repeat injections at this time are totally safe.
