Botulinum toxin (Botox™)

Specialty of Dermatology

Botulinum toxin (Botox™) is a drug that is injected in strategic points on the face to minimise wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily slowing the natural ageing and contraction of facial muscles, leaving the skin smooth and toned, and correcting wrinkles and preventing their progression. The effects of the injection are not immediate. Improvement is typically seen after three or four days, but results are highly satisfactory. Depending on the patient, the effect of botulinum toxin can last between four and eight months, so treatments should be repeated to maintain the results. Apart from its aesthetic uses, Botox is used in medical applications such as the correction of excessive sweating, or treatment of tics and spasms.
