Botulinum Toxin Injections, frequently known as “Botox”, have been used in Medicine for over 40yrs to reduce the effects of Muscle Spasm, or Muscle Twitching.
It was their use in facial twitching in muscles around the eye which first brought to attention that such treatment reduced the lines around that eye treated, but the lines remained around the other untreated eye. This was first notice back in about 1989, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since then, the treatment has gradually evolved, so as well as the original Crows Feet we can now treat
- Frown Lines,
- Forehead Lines,
- Lines of the Upper Lip,
- Crinkling Chin
- Sad Mouth (lifting the angle of the Mouth)
- Sagging Jaw (Nefertiti Lift)
- Neck Lines
- Excessive Sweating
- Scarring (including Keloid Scars)
From being a little apprehensive about its use when he started his Cosmetic Clinic over 15yrs ago, Dr Alan thinks that these little injections now have no equal, particularly when used by an experienced qualified practitioner.
Being a medicine that is only obtained by prescription, it should also only be used under the observation and guidance of the Doctor who wrote the “Script”. These are the guidelines given out by the General Medical Council to every doctor, and at Defy Time all such injections are only carried out by Dr Alan personally.
