Understanding Treatment Options for Facial Lines


Botulinum toxin is a prescription only medicine that can be used to temporarily reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are lines caused by facial muscle movement.

Facial lines are a natural part of ageing, but several treatments are available to improve their appearance.

Botulinum Toxin: A Popular Choice

One of the most well-known options is botulinum toxin, a prescription medicine with various brands available in the UK.

How Botulinum Toxin Works

Botulinum toxin temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. It does this by blocking the signals from nerves to muscles, preventing the contractions that lead to lines forming.

Different Brands, Same Active Ingredient

While Botox® is a popular and widely recognised brand, other botulinum toxin brands are available in the UK, including:

  • Dysport®
  • Bocouture®
  • Azzalure®

These brands contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, but their formulations may differ slightly.

Cosmetic Uses of Botulinum Toxin

Cosmetic botulinum toxin is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of glabellar lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet.

  1. person showing glabellar lines

    Glabellar Lines

    Glabellar lines result from the contraction of the corrugator and orbicularis oculi muscles, pulling the eyebrows together and downward, creating a frown.

  2. person showing crows feet

    Crows Feet

    Lateral canthal lines, or crow’s feet, are caused by the contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle during blinking and smiling. These lines radiate outwards from the outer corner of the eye.

  3. person raising brow showing forehead lines

    Forehead Lines

    Forehead lines are caused by the contraction of the frontalis muscle, which raises the eyebrows. The appearance and strength of this muscle vary greatly between individuals.
