Dynamic Wrinkles / Crow’s Feet / Forehead and Frown Lines

A series of lines begin to appear when these expression muscles get strong. These dynamic wrinkles can be easily treated using Botulinium Toxin A .

How Does Botulinium Toxin A Work?

It is also known by its active ingredient, Botulinum Toxin Type A and is used worldwide by medical practitioners to treat a variety of conditions such as Cervical Dystonia, Blephorospasm and more.

This is because Botulinium Toxin A works to reduce the strength and activity of muscles. The doses used in aesthetics are so small and tailored to the size of the muscles treated. It is a purified toxin which blocks muscle contraction signals in nerves from being sent to muscles, this mechanism of action is further explained in this video below:


Botulinium Toxin A Vs. Surgical Facelift

Botox can be used to create a lifting effect by weakening the downward-acting muscles of the face. These muscles are the platysma (thin sheet of muscle found just underneath the skin of the neck), depressor anguli oris ( triangular shaped muscle that pulls down the corners of the mouth), side of the eye muscle.

These muscles increase the downward vector of the face, creating a tired, sad-looking look. By weakening these muscles with Botox, the uplifting muscles of the face dominate and create a ‘lifting’ effect. This is known commonly as the ‘ Botulinium Toxin A Lift’.

The ‘ Botulinium Toxin A Lift’ has often been compared to having a surgical facelift as both seem to yield similar results in patients. However, there are distinct pros and cons with regards to each procedure. Botulinium Toxin A costs much lesser, the price of Botulinium Toxin A is significantly lower than a surgical facelift which could reach more than ten thousand dollars.

It is also less risky, the side-effects & risks are very minimal in the hands of an experienced Botox injector. The only downside to Botulinium Toxin A is in the fact that it isn’t as permanent as a surgical facelift. Some might argue that this is actually a good thing as it is natural for a face to change in form as it ages. Having a surgical facelift means you won’t be able to predict if you will look natural or not 5 to 10 years from today.

This is where Botulinium Toxin A comes into play. It can be administered at any stage of your life, and, in the hands of a trained and experienced doctor, you’ll be looking good throughout your life.

Jaw Reduction / Face Slimming

Jaw reduction / Face slimming works by reducing the mass of your jaw muscles. These are known as the masseter muscles which cause a square looking face.

To treat this issue, Knightsbridge Clinic will usually use Botulinium Toxin A to cause the muscles of the jaw to shrink in size.

Side Effects: Mild achiness of the masseter muscles for 2 weeks to a month
Risks: A distorted smile, but highly unlikely in an experienced injector.
Units Required: 25-40 units per jaw muscle, depending on the size. Males need a higher dose as their muscles are usually much larger.
Time Required: 5 minutes
Lasts: 6 months, however, it is known that at least 4-6 sessions spaced over 2 years are necessary to permanently shrink the chewing muscles and slim the face. That is why there are Jaw Botulinium Toxin A packages available at The Knightsbridge Clinic.

Wrinkles / Crow’s Feet / Forehead and Frown Lines

Generally these age lines are caused by making the same facial expressions repeatedly. This causes the muscles under the skin to become strong and hyperactive, thus causing these lines to form when one makes an expression. Skin loses elasticity and collagen due to aging, as a result, these age lines get the opportunity to stay in place and dominate.

Thankfully Botulinium Toxin A is able to assist in weaking such muscles under your skin to prevent the expression lines from being etched into your skin. If that happens, it becomes a static wrinkle and needs resurfacing laser procedures to reverse.

Side Effects: Inability to open the eye (highly unlikely in experienced injectors), tight expressionless face (due to overdosage of Botulinium Toxin A which instead of weakening the muscle, paralyzes it).
Risks: mild discomfort, bruising, bleeding
Units Required: Depending on the area and the size of the muscles treated.
Time Required: 10 minutes.
Lasts: 6 months, however, patients often return by themselves around 4-5 months to repeat the procedure.

Reduce Sweatiness Of Palms

It may even feel worse if insensitive jokes are thrown your way.

What Botulinium Toxin A is able to do is reduce the capacity of your palms to sweat. This reduction has mainly to do with the glands which produce sweat in your palms. They can be inactivated by Botox.

Side Effects: Nil.
Risks: mild discomfort, bruising, bleeding.
Units Required: 80U-120U per palm.
Time Required: 15 minutes.
Lasts: 6 months.
