The commonly used neurotoxin is Botulinum type A, which is injected, typically into the forehead, between your eyebrows and around the eyes. What it does is temporarily block local nerve impulses, meaning the wrinkles that come from frowning or laughing aren’t able to form.

They do relax the wrinkle-forming muscles at the site of the injection, but this doesn’t affect the other facial muscles for expressions.

When administered by a professional like Dr Nadine, you’ll look like a brighter, smoother version of yourself.
