Botulinum Toxin (BTX-A) is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It is typically used in people aged 18 to 65.
Botulinum Toxin (BTX-A) works by blocking the nerve transmission to temporarily reduce the contractions of the facial muscles that cause frown lines. It has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles.
Several tiny injections of BTX-A will be administered directly into the muscles of your face. The entire injection procedure will take approximately 10 minutes and does not require anaesthesia.
You should notice an improvement in your frown lines within three to seven days and the effect can last up to four to six months. However, results may vary and after a period of time, your frown lines will begin to reappear as the effects of BTX-A wears off.
BTX-A injections can be administered every four months.
Possible side effects
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. You may experience bruising, bleeding and mild headaches post treatment are common. In rare circumstances, allergic reactions or muscle ptosis can occur.
