Botulinum Toxin

A step towards a younger self

Botulinum toxin

The use of botulinum toxin in 'smoothening' wrinkles is nothing new in cosmetic surgery.  However, it is important that botulinum toxin is injected in the correct dose into the correct muscle in order to create a natural youthful look.   'Over -botoxed ' face whilst give a smooth look, obviates one from natural facial expression which endear one to other people.

Traditionally, botulinum toxin has also been use to treat abnormal twitching or muscle movement in many parts of the body, from facial (See section under blepharospasm for further information),to bladder.  With its lifespan of about 3 months, one has a belief that one may need botulinum toxin for life. However, Dr Ho note that hemifacial spasm and blepharospasm had multiple cause (including emotion and physical cause).  By addressing this factors, one may be able to wean someone off botulinum toxin and there are a few successful examples.
