Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The injections work by stopping the movement of the muscles by inhibiting the nerve message. That prevents the muscles from moving too much and your skin doesn’t crease up.

Wrinkle reduction injections reduce the appearance of frown lines, forehead furrows, crow’s feet, nasal and smile lines, smoker’s lip and banding around the neck to give you a smoother, less stressed, younger-looking complexion. We use only market-leading brands of botulinum toxin upon which standards of treatments are judged.

This treatment can be used on a wide range of patients, and is primarily used for skin rejuvenation and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
