At Clinique O, our specialists use botulinum toxin in order to provide an ideal aesthetic result to their patient.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, facial expressions create visible lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein that relaxes specific facial muscles responsible for active wrinkles, leading to smoother facial contours and a younger, refreshed look.
A botulinum toxin treatment requires 10 to 15 minutes; the effect appears within a few days and lasts 3 to 4 months. If you stop your botulinum toxin treatments, the wrinkles will eventually return as they were before the treatment.
With the doses used for wrinkles, secondary effects, if any, are temporary and limited to the injection site. In general, they would appear in the week following the injection. Bruises, aches and headaches are sometimes related to the injection.
