BOTOX® is the world’s most popular anti-ageing treatment with literally millions of people around the world benefiting from anti-ageing and medical applications.
BOTOX® is a prescription-only drug (botullinum toxin). In anti-ageing treatment, it is injected into the face in order to relax the facial muscles and improve the appearance of wrinkles and creases.
BOTOX® is also used in non-cosmetic procedures as a treatment for many conditions including migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
It is very safe when used by qualified and experienced doctor practitioners. Recovery time is short in comparison to many other cosmetic procedures.
When BOTOX® is injected into the patient’s face, it relaxes the contraction of facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses. Since these muscles will no longer be able to contract, the face relaxes and this softens and reduces wrinkles and creases in the skin.
The treatment is not permanent, so patients should anticipate re-treatments every few months to prevent further wrinkles from appearing, though each injection should also reduce the depth of newer wrinkles. In this respect, BOTOX® can also be used preventatively, to delay the appearance of wrinkles.
Treatment takes about 15-20 minutes.
BOTOX® is a popular choice with men and women who wish to reduce the appearance of winkles and frown lines, typically around the face and neck. While this is the most common application of BOTOX®, it can also be used to treat severe brow furrow, uncontrolled blinking and lazy eyes. BOTOX® patients can be of any age or gender, and the popularity of the treatment is increasing every year.
The cost of BOTOX® treatment will vary from clinic to clinic. See our Price List for the latest information.
