Botulin Toxin
for Wrinkles

When administered, Botulin Toxin injections relax certain muscles in the face, so the targeted wrinkles and lines become less visible for a period of time. Although effective, the results of Botulin Toxin will begin to fade after 3 to 6 months, but they can last longer with ongoing treatment.

Botulin Toxin for wrinkles is suitable for virtually anyone who has wrinkles or other skin lines that they want to remove.

Why have Botulin Toxin treatment for wrinkles?

Botulin Toxin reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles already formed and also eases over-active muscle movement that causes deep frown lines and crow’s feet.

Benefits and Results

  • Helps soften the appearance of the lines

  • Non-invasive with little to no recovery time

  • Results are visible within 3 days

What happens during a wrinkle Botulin Toxin treatment?

A thin needle is used to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin. The number of injections you need will vary, depending on a variety of factors, including the size of the area being treated.

Botulin Toxin
For Migraines

Due to its nerve-blocking effects, Botulin Toxin can also be used to treat chronic migraines; defined as 3 months of at least 15 days of headaches a month, of which at least 8 days are migraines.

It may work by relaxing muscles around the head to reduce blood pressure within the brain or it can reduce or prevent the nerves’ ability to send pain signals during a migraine.

Why have Botulin Toxin treatment for migraines?

Botulin Toxin aims to prevent the nerves from sending signals that will lead to a migraine, therefore converting migraine from chronic to episodic. It also aims to cut down the total number of days you get migraines.

Benefits and Results

  • Botulin Toxin can prevent, on average, 8 or 9 headache days and migraine days a month

  • It prevents headaches and migraines before they even start

  • It’s very quick; the injections take about 15 minutes

What happens during a Botulin Toxin treatment for migraines?

A series of tiny (0.1 ml) shots are injected under the skin or into the muscles in and around the head and neck. You’ll get an equal number of shots on each side of your head. The injections are repeated every 12 weeks until chronic migraine symptoms decrease. Results are normally seen after the first or second set of injections.

Botulin Toxin
For Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a condition that affects the amount of sweat produced by the body. Although more widely known for its cosmetic uses to remove lines and wrinkles from the face, Botulin Toxin can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis.

Most cases of hyperhidrosis affect the hands, feet and/or the underarms. Botulin Toxin injections are normally injected into these areas. When administered in small doses, Botulin Toxin can block nerves which supply the eccrine glands. This helps prevent them from producing sweat. Although generally very effective, the effects eventually wear off after about three to six months.

Why have Botulin Toxin treatment for hyperhidrosis?

Botulin Toxin is a safe and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis and often results in long-lasting improvements in an excessive sweating patient’s symptoms and daily functioning.

Benefits and Results

  • Reduces sweating

  • Noticeable results 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks

  • Only takes a few minutes to administer, with results that can last for months

What happens during a Botulin Toxin treatment for hyperhidrosis?

Administered in our clinic in Harley Street, small doses of Botulin Toxin are injected a few centimetres apart in the affected area, which blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the sweat glands. By blocking or interrupting this chemical messenger, the sweat gland is turned off to reduce sweating. Injections in the hands and feet tend to be more uncomfortable; Dr Cotrufo will provide an ice pack or numbing cream to make the treatment more comfortable.
