Botox became a household name when it was approved for cosmetic use for the treatment of frown lines in 2002. While you may know that it is a drug to smooth out wrinkles you may not know that it has been licensed as safe and effective treatment for a number of medical conditions caused by over active muscles since the 1990′s. Botox is a natural, purified protein. The active ingredient in Botox is derived from bacteria in much the same way penicillin is derived from mould.

Botox is an extremely effective and easy way of removing frown lines and crows feet and is considered the number one cosmetic treatment for removing them.

Tiny amounts of Botox are injected into muscle effecting these facial lines. The treatment takes a week for the muscles to relax and the creases to smooth out. The results will last from 3 to 4 months but can last up to six. This varies for each person. The treatments are a very quick and effective way to reverse time and slow the effects of ageing.

Botox can also be used to overcome excessive sweating. Small amounts of Botox are injected into the armpits, giving relief from sweating for at least six months, often longer. People who experience regular headaches or migraines use Botox to ease their symptoms and Botox can often stop their headaches altogether with regular treatments. Both of these treatments had been life changing for people.
