WHAT IS BOTOX®?

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 frown lines. Worldwide, now more than 3 million Botox® treatments take place per year.

WHY WOULD I NEED BOTOX?

HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?

Botox® is injected into the target muscle and works at the neuromuscular junction by blocking the transmission of signals from the nerve ending to the muscle. This causes temporary paralysis of the treated muscle, which results in the reduction or loss of wrinkles. The result is not permanent because the nerve ending re-establishes it’s signalling by forming new nerve sprouts. This sprouting takes approximately 3-6 months, at which point the muscle regains it’s activity and the wrinkles begin to reappear.
