Botox, also known as Botilinum toxin type A, is actually a toxin which is injected into specific areas of the body to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking nerve signals and preventing muscle contraction. Botox causes the muscles to relax and decreases the presence of facial lines.
Why would I consider having Botox?
Ageing is inevitable but many people want to preserve their youthful looks for as long as possible – Botox is a safe, quick and simple means of rolling back the years. If you are drawn to lines and wrinkles on your face or feel that you look old, Botox could be the perfect solution to restore confidence in your appearance. Botox is an effective treatment for signs of ageing, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown and forehead lines
- Lines around the mouth
- Saggy jowls and neck
- Gummy smiles
How long does Botox last?
Botox does not produce permanent results as the body will gradually break down the toxin. Results tend to last between 3 to 5 months and the treatment must be repeated to preserve a smooth complexion.
Is Botox suitable for everyone?
Botox is most popular amongst men and women aged between 30 and 60. It should not be administered if a patient has an infection at the site of the injection or if they are known to have an allergy to Botox. Botox is also inadvisable for people with muscular disorders.

” I could not believe how quick, simple, and inexpensive it was just two small injections on either side of my nose and the treatment was done”. Just one week later I could smile and laugh with confidence and not think about trying not to flash my gums, I just wish I’d known about it sooner. I would have had it done years ago, I get it done about twice a year.”
“I’ve always looked after my skin as I’m very fair but I’d been concerned about lines at the side of and underneath my eyes. I have botox to treat them 3 times a year and I love the way it really softens them but I still look natural when I laugh and smile.”

“Before I had my Botox my confidence was low. My makeup would look uneven and look patchy around the wrinkles on my forehead. Since having Botox treatment my skin is amazing, smooth and my makeup looks great!!! I am so happy and confident with my skin now. Thanks Melissa 🙂 xxx”
