Botulinum Toxin type A has been used for decades in clinical medicine for the treatment of neurological disorders and migraine, with well documented and reported benefit.
In aesthetic medicine it is used for relaxing facial and neck muscles, which results in reduced 'creasing' of the over lying skin. We run clinics for Botox in Northampton, and use no other anti-wrinkle brand.
An understanding of the anatomy of the face - the muscles and their specific actions, is essential for achieving the desired results.
Apart from the treatment of facial wrinkles, it has been effective for excessive sweating - a medical condition known as Hyperhydrosis. In the treatment of Hyperhydrosis, injections are administered in both arm pits or hands and feet to reduce the activity of the sweat glands. This treatment is usually administered once every year in the spring, with the full effects in time for the summer.
Unlike for other medical conditions, treatment is not yet available on the NHS.
The use of Botulinum Toxin is a medical procedure and all treatments are delivered by our trained, experienced doctors.
