The active ingredient in Botox® is a purified protein called Botulinum Toxin A. When injected into a muscle, Botox® acts as a muscle relaxant, this resultant muscle weakening relaxes wrinkles and leads to a smoothening and rejuvenation of the skin.
What would Botox treatment involve?
An initial consultation is available to allow us to find out about your particular needs and expectations. It also gives you the opportunity to ask any further questions and you have the option to undergo treatment at the same appointment. You will be under no obligation to proceed, but if you decide to go ahead with treatment a signed consent form will be required. The Botox® will then be administered to the predetermined areas.
