Botox is the brand name for a natural toxin called bacterium Clostridium botulinum. There are many brands of botulinum toxin, such as Xeomin and Dysport.

Botox has been in use in medicine for more than 35 years and was first used to treat squinting in children. Its uses cosmetically are to treat wrinkles and frown lines and to balance muscle contraction on the face.

If used in large quantities this toxin can be dangerous, which is why it should be correctly administered by a professional. Botox is used to paralyze targeted facial muscles, preventing lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and frowning. Botox is injected directly into specific muscles in diluted amounts and assists in the weakening of the muscles.

In the 1980s Botox was approved for other ailments like blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) and strabismus (lazy eye). It is also used to treat bruxism (uncontrolled biting of the jaw muscle) and extreme sweating in the armpits, palms and soles.

How Does Botox Work?

Injecting specific muscles with Botox stops the nerve signals to the muscles or sweat glands which inhibits the injected muscle from contracting and prevents wrinkles or sweating.

Maintaining a softened outline to the skin, or stopping sweating.

How is the Botox Procedure Performed?

The Botox is diluted and then injected into specific areas at different depths in the body to achieve the desired effect on the muscles or sweat glands. There is usually minimal bleeding or bruising and takes only minutes to perform by a skilled injector. Within a week you should notice the effect on the facial muscles with softening of the lines in the areas that were injected.

How Long Does Botox Last?

It takes approximately four to six months. Injections for hyperhidrosis (increased sweating) last about a year.


These are products which are designed to temporally replace the lost subcutaneous collagen under the skin which occurs with aging. This is often noted around the lips with thinning of the upper and lower lip and the appearance of “smokers lines” even if one never smoked! Fillers are an ideal option for the management of these lines. They can also be used in other areas of the upper and lower face. The fillers are a synthetic product, made exactly like our own natural collagen’s basic structure, called hyaluronic acid, and are extremely safe if used correctly. Fillers generally last a year or longer depending on the density (thickness) of the product and the site of the injection. 

This is a technique using a roller or “pen” with tiny needles which puncture the skin. Commonly known as the “blood facial”.

This results in collagen stimulation, which results in the reduction of lines, improved skin.
