The use of Botulinum toxin in medicine dates back to the 1800's and was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2002. The injection of botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, has become very popular for reducing wrinkles and rejuvenating the aging face. The effects are only temporary, but the injections can be done quickly, require no recovery time, and are not as complicated as many other cosmetic procedures for the face. Botulinum toxin is produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. When a small amount of Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. The effect is that it temporarily weakens or paralyzes the facial muscles and smooths or eliminates wrinkles in the skin for several months. Treatment takes just a few minutes.
Results last between 4-6 months, regular top ups are required to obtain optimum results.
