“This is a treatment that we use to treat dynamic lines mainly in the upper third of the face, so this is a really good treatment for frown lines, for horizontal forehead lines and for lines around the eyes which are called crows feet.”
Dynamic wrinkling or lines are those which result from movement. By reducing the activity of the fine dynamic muscles, so the skin can remain still and smooth.

BOTOX® Demonstration by Dr John Quinn
After a pre-treatment consultation, the skin is cleaned and then marked up using a pencil prior to tiny injections being delivered using extremely fine needles to minimise discomfort. He explains that the drug relaxes the muscles in the areas treated and allows the skin which fits on top of these muscles to smooth out. He says:
“The balance is between having a nice effect and not looking very treated.”
“As time goes by even more so I advocate a very natural approach to this treatment.”
