Botox (botulinum toxin) is a special purified protein with a very handy side-effect. It can block the nerves in specific muscles in the face when injected under the skin, reducing the appearance of dynamic lines.
Botox can be used to treat the following:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Crow’s feet
After a numbing cream has been applied, an extremely fine needle is used to precisely deliver small amounts of a purified protein.
Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and effects will show in a couple of days. The number of injections will depend on the area being treated and, as these are precisely targeted, they produce natural looking results. There is also no need to take any time out to recover after the procedure.
The effects of Botox aren’t permanent and will wear off after around six months. You will need to top up to keep wrinkles from re-appearing. Regular use of anti-wrinkle injections can make results last longer, so top-up injections will be less frequent.
