Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) is a prescription only muscle-relaxant which uses the toxin botulinum toxin. This popular and effective treatment uses safe amounts of the toxin in aesthetics procedures which are injected using a micro needle relaxing the ‘expression’ muscles. This makes lines and wrinkles, such as crows feet and frown lines, less obvious.
One of the key aims when injecting Botox is to ensure that facial expressions are minimally affected, for an entirely natural result; so you look well-rested and fresh rather than like you have had a procedure.
