What is Botox®?
Botox® (or Botulinum Toxin Type A) was used in medical procedures for years before it was recognised for its wrinkle smoothing properties in cosmetic treatments. Botox can be injected into the muscles and reduces the muscle activity in the injected area.
How does Botox work® ?
As a highly refined protein, Botox® stops a chemical called acetylcholine being released in the nerve endings, which prevents the muscle from contracting.
How much does Botox® hurt?
Everyone has a slightly different pain threshold. However, Botox® is often described as having the same level of discomfort as plucking a hair from your eyebrow.
How long does Botox® last?
The effects of Botox® will approximately last 3 months, however this varies depending on the person. The effects of Botox® will gradually wear off.
Which areas can I get Botox® ?
Botox may be injected into the facial muscles that are cause wrinkles, such as:
- Around the eye area
- Across the forehead
- Frown lines above the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
- On the chin and jawline
