What Is Botox Treatment

What is Injectable Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?

Injectable anti-wrinkle treatments often referred to as ‘Botox’ can be used on the face to prevent new lines from forming or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles. A small amount of Botulinum Toxin type A (Botox®/Azzalure®), a naturally occurring protein, will temporarily relax facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Doses are tailored to the individual, there is also the option of having ‘baby botox’ in which a very small amount is used to create extremely subtle results

The treatment can take up to fourteen days to reach its full effect and generally lasts between three to five months.

Common uses

Botulinum Toxin type A has various uses for general medical conditions as well as for cosmetic purposes.

It is most commonly used in cosmetic purposes for the treatment of wrinkles and dynamic lines, which form as a result of facial expressions such a frowning and smiling. A full assessment will be carried out prior to treatment as deeper lines, sleep lines or gravity lines may not be appropriate for Botulinum toxin treatment.
