- Persistent muscle contractions cause wrinkles and expression lines. With age, these lines become ingrained into our skin. Other causes include prolonged sun exposure (photo ageing), smoking and pollution.
- Dynamic wrinkles occur when we use our facial muscles for expression. When we are young, our skin is more elastic and springs back. With age, dynamic wrinkles remain on our skin forming static wrinkles which occur at rest without any facial expressions. With age these wrinkles tend to become deeper and eventually permanent.

Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can be very embarrassing. These injections administered in therapeutic doses can treat severe sweating affecting the feet, palms and underarms that cannot be managed by topical agents such as antiperspirants. The treatment is well tolerated. These injections stop the release of a chemical messenger that temporarily blocks nerve transmissions in the skin which stimulate sweating.
