Botox® is a medication that can only be prescribed by a healthcare professional. The medication uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses to restrict muscle contractions. For those who want to appear younger, this results in the smoothing of the skin in key places like the forehead and around the eyes. Botox® helps relax the muscles beneath the skin so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible – achieving a much more youthful appearance.
Depending on the individual case, the results of can last between one and six months. However, it is important to note that Botox® is a temporary solution and once it begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
