Botox® injections are a popular and effective aesthetic solution for reducing facial wrinkles and fine lines, to create younger looking skin. They are chosen by thousands of men and women every year as a prefered treatment to reduce the signs of aging.

Throughout life we laugh, smile, frown and squint, and over time this can leave wrinkles, lines and creases around the eyes, mouth, lips and on the forehead – often referred to as crows feet, laughter, smile, frown and marionette lines. Formulated and launched in the US, Botox® was formally approved more than 20 years ago for cosmetic use to reduce these lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to treat excess armpit sweating and migraines.

The treatment consists of injecting botulinum toxin into the skin, focusing on areas where lines and wrinkles have formed. The botulinum toxin works by temporarily freezing or paralysing muscles, thereby reducing their use and in doing so reducing the appearance of the associated lines and wrinkles.

The procedure takes no more than 20 minutes, is performed without any anesthetic, and produces highly effective results.
