Botox® is a prescription only medicine. It is administered via fine injections into muscles to stop forceful contraction. The treatment itself lasts between 10-20 minutes

Botox® was developed during the 1970s and received full FDA approval in 1997 for cosmetic use. Botox® has been proven very useful in cosmetic treatments, such as removing frown lines. In addition to the treatment of frown lines and wrinkles, Botox® is also used to treat migraines, headaches and Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). The approved brands of Botulinum Toxin available in the UK include Botox®, Vistabel®, Xeomin®, Dysport® and Azzalure®.

How long do the results last?

Results will start to show after 3-10 days and will last 3-4 months. Patients who have treatments 2 or 3 times per year tend to find the results may last longer after the first 2 years of Botox® treatments. When combined with other skincare treatments, it is an essential component of anti-ageing. Hyperhidrosis (anti-sweating) effects can last up to 6 months.
