When injected into the muscle,it blocks a chemical message from the nerve ending to the muscle. This causes temporary paralysis of the treated muscle, which stops movement and hence reduces or stops wrinkles forming. Approximately 3-4 months later the nerve ending re-establishes itself which allows the signal to get through and the muscle moves again, causing wrinkles to re appear.
How is it administered?
A small number of injections using very fine needles.
Does it Hurt?
Discomfort is minimal and no local anaesthetic is needed.
How long does it take to work?
