Anti-wrinkle injections (Botox)

What is Botox?

Botox is short for Botulinum Toxin. It’s a neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium Botulin bacteria; an organism found in the natural environment. The word ‘Botox’ is the brand name of injectable Botulinum Toxin.

How does Botox work?

  1. Botox is injected into the desired muscle.
  2. The Botox blocks the signal from the nerves that make the muscle to move.
  3. As the muscle can no longer move, this causes the wrinkles to soften and helps to stop new wrinkles from forming.
  4. You may notice the results from your Botox injections with a few days but it can take more than two weeks for the full effect to be seen.
  5. Over 3-4 months your body will clear the Anti-Wrinkle Injections and the muscle contraction will return to normal.
