Botox is a prescription drug, which when injected into the muscle, blocks nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, thereby causing them to relax. Botox treatments have gained popularity throughout the world because of the simplicity of the procedure and fast immediate results. The term “Botox” is registered trademark for a brand of Botulinum toxin used for such indications.
Being a prescription drug, Botox injections should be performed only by professionals with special training and with our very own on-site fully qualified medical doctor Dr Biju Philip you know you’ll be in excellent hands if you are considering any treatments for facial enhancement…In UK, Botulinum Toxin is a prescription on medicine(POM) and hence, only doctors, dentists, or nurses and therapists who have completed a prescribing course can offer the treatment.
The full effects of Botox injections can be seen in 5-7 days. Results may vary on individuals, depending on the severity of wrinkles and the strength of muscles treated. The results last from three to six months, after which most patients gradually return to their former state. Normally, Botox Injections should be repeated every 3-4 months.
