A quick solution for wrinkle-free skin at Skin Renewal Paarl

B – Botulinum toxin

“A-Z The building blocks to become the best version of yourself”

Botulinum toxin (commercially known as Botox ®) is an injectable substance used to relax muscles in a way that can mimimise the look of wrinkles. It’s been safely used for decades and with great success at Skin Renewal in Paarl.

Know your wrinkles

There are two types of wrinkles – static and dynamic. Static lines are those you’ll see even when your face is at rest. These tend to appear when we’re older as they’re typically caused by a loss of volume so they’re best treated with dermal fillers.

Dynamic lines, however, are the wrinkles that appear when your face is animated. Think of the crow’s feet that appear around your eyes or the frown that appears when you’re concentrating. These are the type of wrinkles that botulinum toxin can treat as it relaxes the muscles that cause them.

Prevention is best

Botulinum toxin can be administered at any age but using it preventatively is ideal because it slows the process of a line’s journey from dynamic (only appearing when you make an expression) to static (always on your face). Thus, the moment a dynamic wrinkle starts to bother you, you become a potential candidate for botulinum toxin.

At Skin Renewal, we administer botulinum toxin to many patients under the age of 30. We also don’t only use it to treat wrinkles. There are a myriad of other conditions botulinum toxin can resolve and some of them are surprising. For example, it can relax a top lip and remove a gummy smile and even inhibit sweat glands to help with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).


The great thing about botulinum toxin is that it’s a non-invasive “lunch break” procedure with zero downtime. Immediately after your treatment, the injection site might look like a mosquito bite for up to an hour before resolving without a trace.

You can go straight back to work and nobody has to know you’ve just zapped a wrinkle. Just don’t lie down for at least four hours and don’t exercise for 24 hours to ensure your botulinum toxin remains in the place where it has to do its work. Within just five to seven days, you’ll begin to see a noticeably smoother-looking complexion and the results will last up to three or four months.
