Multiple injections of the neurotoxin, Botulinum Toxin type A, are commonly used in areas of wrinkles of the upper face such as the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet. However, it can be used in various areas of the face and neck to help the appearance of lines. It is commonly referred to as "Botox", but this is a brand name and multiple ones are available.
It works by disrupting the signals from the nerve to the muscle, preventing full movement. This prevents the formation of lines, and can reduce deepening of pre-existing lines static lines which appear at rest.
When a muscle stops receiving nerve signals it will weaken and shrink (atrophy) which can reduce the size of certain muscles such as the masseter (side of jaw). It can also work on the sweat glands and is commonly used in the armpits for excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis.
Results can be seen in as little as 1-2 weeks and on average will last 3-4 months as the toxin is gradually broken down. Subject to consultation as a prescription only medication.
