Botulinum toxin in Birmingham FAQ’s

What is Botulinum toxin®?

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein commercially produced for cosmetic and research use. Over the past 20 years it has grown in popularity across all genders and adult age groups. The techniques have also improved, with more refined tools enabling treatment of more areas of the body.

There are several of different types of muscle relaxing injections. The primary use for this type of injectable is to starve off lines and wrinkles from forming around the eyes, forehead, and mouth.

In most cases, Botulinum toxin in Birmingham is used on its own, however some patients choose to combine it with other injectables such as dermal fillers – in order to get the specific result they require.

How does Botulinum toxin® work?

Botulinum toxin in Birmingham can help to relax the dynamic muscles of the face and combat wrinkles. It also helps with excessive axillary underarm-sweating. When injected, the toxin prevents nervous signals from reaching specific muscles thereby leaving them without instructions to contract. This, in turn, decreases the degree of tension on your facial features, resulting in a smooth face, free of lines and creases.

What areas can Botulinum toxin® help to improve?

Botulinum toxin can work by relaxing the facial muscles to improve the skin’s appearance by reducing lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injections in Birmingham can be used to improve:
