Botox is well known for its wrinkle removing effects. It is now one of the top selling non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the UK and continues to gain in popularity. It works on all facial lines that have been caused by repeated muscle movements such as frown lines across the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, as well as lines around the lips and neck.
The procedure is effective and simple as Botox® is injected in tiny quantities with a very small needle directly into the muscles that are being treated. It works by relaxing the muscles so they are no longer habitually contracting. This means the lines caused by the muscle movement are significantly reduced or erased. Results start to appear after 24 to 72 hours with the main effect appearing after about two weeks and lasting 3 to 4 months. Your face looks smoother, younger and refreshed, potentially taking years off your appearance.
