Botox, or Botulinum Toxin A to use its scientific name, is a protein that acts on the muscles of the face, causing lines and wrinkles to relax and smooth out. It can be used to treat the frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crowns feet.
We always carry out a full medical and aesthetic consultation before administering Botox. As the effects of Botox take 14 days to develop, patients are advised to return for assessment to ensure the best results. Should more Botox be required, it is added at this time at no additional cost. Botox treatment results in a softer, more relaxed, less tired appearance. The effects can last around four months. Most men and women find that after about two years of regular treatment, the effects last longer.
