Botox

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.
