Essentially Botox is an anti wrinkle treatment. Botox helps you to look and feel youthful by restoring freshness and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox® (Botulinum toxin type ‘A’) is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It was developed during the 1970s – 1980s to treat blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids) and strabismus (squint).
In 1997 it achieved FDA approval for cosmetic use in the USA and by 2006 was granted a license by the MHRA in the UK for the treatment of wrinkles.
Worldwide, now more than 3 million Botox® treatments take place per year.
