Most commonly referred to by one of its product name 'Botox', the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin is an increasingly popular alternative to surgery. Botox works by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, therefore paralysing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox gives skin a smoother appearance and is mainly used on frown lines, forehead creases and crows feet around the eye.
Botox reaches its maximum effect after 2 weeks and lasts for up to 4 months although this can vary. Eventually you will notice your wrinkles gradually reappear, a sign that the 'Botox' is wearing off and it may be time for another injection if you wish to maintain the results.
It is always advised that your injection be administered by a surgeon, dentist, doctor or trained aesthetic nurse, with the relevant training to make educated alterations to the amount of Botox, based on your individual needs. The procedure is usually painless, and apart from some possible bruising, invisible.
