A Toxin was first used in the 1970s to treat children with squints. It’s cosmetic potential was then recognised, and it has been used to treat wrinkles since 1990, but much longer for medical reasons. A convenient alternative to surgery, it is possible to use injections with the toxin to reduce and relax frown lines, forehead lines and laughter lines around the eyes.
The benefits of toxin injections are visible within 7 to 10 days of the treatment. They will last for three to four months when you first start having these injections, giving the face a smoother, more rested appearance. This is a preventative treatment, and with repeat injections over time, the less you will need. Our advanced aesthetic practitioners, can also use toxins for the lower face and neck.
