Botox Watford – Improving fine lines and wrinkles

Botox Watford botulinum toxin

Botox ® (Brand by Allergan) or Botulinum toxin is a non surgical prescription only injection that temporarily reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the face. It is produced by a naturally occurring bacterial protein which is purified and used in tiny amounts for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. The protein is injected into the skin and acts on the nerve endings of muscles making them temporarily inactive. This results in a softening of wrinkle lines and a smoother appearance of the skin.

The main targeted areas are forehead creases, frown lines between eyebrows and wrinkles at the corner of the eyes.  We also use Botox for excessive sweating as it can affect the glands that produce sweat in the armpits.

Due to its excellent safety profile and effectiveness it is the number one minimally invasive procedure performed today in the UK and USA.
