Botulinum Toxin injections are a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that involves micro-injections directly into the muscles to relax and “iron out” unwanted wrinkles. It stops the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles.
Botulinum Toxin injections administered along the jawline area up to just beyond the temple area, to target mid-face lifting and rejuvenation. It works by blocking the nerve transmission to muscle cells, thus relaxing the facial muscles.
The goal is for those muscle fibres to contract much less and to no longer create “dynamic lines” in the treated area.
There may be a slight discomfort whilst the Botulinum Toxin is being injected into the face. You can also request for a topical numbing cream or ice to help further minimize discomfort.
Results will typically be noticeable within a few days to up to 2 weeks post-treatment depending on individual response and area treated.
It’s completely normal to experience a little bit of discomfort, redness and bruising after the procedure. Reactions generally occur immediately after the needle injection and can include; redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the injection location. These reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after injection and are usually resolved a few days after the injection into the skin.
Yes there is 100% a difference between Botulinum toxin injections and dermal filler. Botulinum toxin injections stop the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles, whilst dermal fillers plump from below the wrinkle to smooth them out and promote a youthful look.
