What is botulinum toxin?

It is a poison that is used to paralyse muscles. In small volumes it is not harmful and can be used to selectively target different muscle groups in the body. Its use in facial rejuvenation in particular is now widespread. By paralysing certain muscles one can prevent the action and prevent the wrinkles that form overlying them.

Can I have fillers and botox at the same time?

It is often best to avoid having both at the same time however if you are having fillers in a different area to the botox then there is no contraindication. The pros and cons need to be discussed at a consultation.
