TreatmentsFrom crow’s feet to frown lines, we are able to temporarily improve the appearance of fine to severe facial lines and wrinkles with muscle relaxing injections of a highly purified form of Botulinum Toxin Type A. It is a relatively non-invasive treatment and discomfort is minimal. Botulinum Toxin Type A is a prescription drug and it is unlawful for anyone other than a qualified doctor to administer it.

The procedure is performed with the patient sitting upright, so as to best observe skin creases and wrinkles. A few drops of BotulinumToxin Type A are injected via a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. This blocks the nerve impulses from reaching the muscle, thus weakening the muscle. Patients may experience a minor sting for a few seconds at the time of injection. Other local symptoms such as pain at the injection sites and some mild bruising and redness may also be experienced. No severe reactions to treatment have been reported, although minor allergic reactions do happen. Slight drooping of the eyelid is a very rare, reversible complication.

Typically, the muscle relaxation/weakening takes effect within 24-72 hours after injection and usually lasts for 3-6 months.
