There are numerous anti-wrinkle injection treatments out there, but botox is one of the most effective ones by far. These injections are mainly used on the face and are a safe and effective treatment for frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and excessive sweating and are suitable for virtually anyone who has wrinkles or other skin lines that they want to remove. This includes people who want to fight the signs of natural ageing, or those who’ve developed lines from exposure to the sun.
It usually starts to work after 3-5 days with maximum effect reached after 2 weeks. The effect lasts a variable length of time, between 3 to 6 months (average 4 months). Patients who have had several injections often find the effect persists longer.
Side effects are uncommon and minimal and has an excellent safety profile, over one million treatments have been administered in the UK. You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after leaving the clinic, although it’s important to avoid anything strenuous for 24 hours such as going to the gym. Allergic reactions to muscle relaxing injections do not occur.
