What is Botulinum Toxin used for?
It is to treat:
Vertical frown lines (mid forehead, in between the eyebrows).
Crow’s feet (side of eyes).
Horizontal wrinkle lines on the forehead.
Vertical and horizontal neck lines.
Bunny lines on the bridge of the nose.
Puckering of the chin.
Marionette lines (corner of the mouth to chin).
How is Botulinum Toxin administered?
It is injected serially into a group of muscles which controls frowning and wrinkling, with a very fine needle. It takes only a few minutes. It is a relatively painless procedure. The patient will experience pain from the needle pricks only.
What must I do after the injection?
After the treatment, you are required to remain upright for 1 — 2 hours. During this period, you must try not to strain the muscles that have been injected as much as possible to maximize the effect of the toxin on the muscle. You are advised to not rub the skin or muscles on or around the injected site.
