Botox® (botulinum toxin type A) is a muscle freezing injection administered into the skin to remove the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox is the most popular treatment in the UK for the treatment of ageing skin.
The results from Botox® treatments are not permanent, but can last up to six months, with the average patient experiencing visible results from between three and four months. The treatment is safe and virtually painless and results are visible within three to seven days. Botox® treatments are also used to eliminate lines around the eyes, gently erasing the signs of ageing, restoring a fresh and relaxed complexion.
Botox® is a purified protein that once injected into a muscle, leads to a temporary muscular relaxation, helping to remove frown lines, worry lines and laughter lines.
There are three main types of wrinkles that can be treated with the Botox® Toxin:
- Frown Wrinkles (Glabella wrinkles)
These wrinkles are commonly seen in people with excessive sun exposure. They also appear with age in people whose muscles are often associated with frowning and laughter, or emotions such as anger, anxiety or fear.
- Forehead Wrinkles
Forehead wrinkles appear as horizontal lines in the area between the eyebrows and the hairline. These wrinkles are formed due to facial expressions due to emotional reactions.
- Eye Wrinkles (Crow’s Feet)
Crow’s Feet wrinkles (Periorbiltal wrinkles) are in the outer corner of the eyes and appear more prominent when laughing or smiling.
Botox® isn’t just a cosmetic procedure, it is also used to treat and improve a variety of other conditions, such as excessive sweating, a nd other certain neurological disorders.
