Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, is a substance produced by bacteria which is highly refined, purified, diluted, and used in therapeutic doses. It is injected into specific facial muscles, where it acts as a muscle relaxant.

Botox is most effective in improving lines or wrinkles from facial expressions, such as worry or frown lines. The effects begin to appear in 48-72 hours, although the full extent may not be visible for up to 10 days.

As soon as your treatment is over you can resume normal daily activities. In a small number of cases there may be some localised bruising, slight swelling or redness at the site of the injection, which usually disappears very quickly. A temporary drooping eyelid may occur in some patients.

Initially the improvements last for 3-4 months. You will notice a gradual fading of the effects and can then return for another treatment if you wish. With repeated treatments, the effects last longer.
