Botox is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used as a temporary treatment for patients starting at 18. Botox treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
How It Works
Botox uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Depending on each case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
