BOTOX is the commonly used brand name for Botulinum toxin, an anti-wrinkle injection. It is a purified protein that is isolated from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum and injected in micro amounts into the small muscles of the face and body to relax and smooth out wrinkles.
Botox injections work by preventing the muscle from contracting. This leaves the overlying skin looking smooth and wrinkle-free.
The treatment involves Dr Qureshi injecting small amounts of Botox into carefully selected muscles of the face, which are more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. At MySkyn Clinic the aim is to improve the appearance of wrinkles but still allow movement in the muscles – i.e a more natural look.
Commonly treated areas are frown lines in between the eyebrows, laughter lines around the eyes and horizontal forehead lines.
