BoTa (Botulinum Toxin A)
Top Product and Industry Gold Standard for wrinkle reduction mainly used in the upper third of the face. Very safe product has been around since 1986.
Botulinum toxin A works by blocking the chemical receptor acetycholine at the neuromuscular junction. this prevents the muscle from contracting, even though the nerve continues to send a message the tissue does not receive the message and the muscle remains still. Over several months the muscle gradually develops new receptors and is able to contract again.
BoTa is most effective for the correction of lines formed from muscle contraction alone such as the laughter lines an frown lines. Anti ageing injections offer positive results within just 4 to 5 days of treatment. The effects can continue to appear up to 2 weeks. Improvements from anti ageing injections last for up to 6 months. It is important to note that having BoTa will not stop your face from performing natural expressions, unless a No movement look is desired. The effects of the treatment mean the appearance of lines and wrinkles are significantly decreased. Prices vary depending on number of areas treated but starts at £80.00 for one area, £110 for two areas and up to £140 for 3 areas treated. This offer is running for the month of March after which time prices will revert back to normal treatment prices. Includes consultation and review and free top up of product if required.
BoTa will not remove wrinkles which are static or permanently etched in the skin regardless of muscle movement though they will certainly soften them.
