Botulinum toxin, most famously known as Botox®, has been FDA-approved for cosmetic treatment in the UK since 2006. Botulinum toxin has been used in medicine for many years; the anti-ageing properties Botulinum toxin are most likely one of the reasons behind many of the well-preserved faces in Hollywood and Bollywood. When injected, Botulinum toxin relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles.
However, when done well, facial expressions can be maintained. Botulinum toxin is a very popular cosmetic treatment used to treat wrinkles, frown lines and forehead lines, crows’ feet, improving gummy smile, lip area and smile lifting, Neck lifting, Smokers lines, Excessive sweating/hyperhidrosis and Migraines.
Botulinum toxin is a Prescription Only Medicine (POM) and can only legally be prescribed by registered and licensed medical professionals after a face to face consultation. This is a very important part of the process. Unfortunately, many people performing these injections and dermal fillers remain unregulated in the UK, which can result not only in bad results but can have potentially devastating outcomes.
At Cosmetics Clinic we reassure you that all Botulinum toxin treatments are performed by expert doctors with proven experience within aesthetic medicine.
