Botox is a term which many people have heard of and it has become almost generic in the world of aesthetic medicine.
However, Botox is actually the brand name for one of the medicines containing the active ingredient Botulinum Toxin, and which is used to relax the facial muscles that are responsible for causing wrinkles. Treatment with injections containing Botulinum Toxin is, and has been for many years, the most popular non-surgical treatment performed anywhere in the world.
Botulinum Toxin works by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and is effective at doing this when injected into the forehead and also around the edges of the eyes, to improve what we often call ‘crow’s feet’.
Botulinum Toxin is also very effective at reducing sweating hands and armpit – a condition known as Hiperhidrosis.
Wrinkles will soften within 5 to 7 days after the injections and their appearance will improve with time. The new ‘fresher look’ will last up to 4 months when the procedure can then be repeated.
Benefits of Wrinkle Injections
