There is growing evidence that starting Botox in our thirties slows down the formation of lines and wrinkles in later years
By targeting very specific muscles and placing the muscle relaxant botox injections in exactly the areas of greatest need, beautiful, natural results are achieved.
Botox around the eyes to give an eye brow lift effect is the number one most popular treatment at medical cosmetic clinics all over the world. After more than 40 years of botox being used in cosmetic treatments, it has been the subject of a large number of research studies and has established itself as being safe and effective with a very low incidence of side effects when performed by experienced medical injectors.
Expression lines such as frown lines and crow's feet deepen as we age. Softening and smoothing these lines can make us feel happier, look younger and more friendly.
Only tiny doses of Botox injections are needed and when it is injected into a chosen muscle, the Botox molecule stops the nerve signal which is necessary to allow the muscle to contract. The effect is gradual softening of the expression line which takes 2 to 5 days to come on and then 2 weeks for the full effect.
Side effects are rare when Botox is done by an experienced injector.
