Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly referred to as 'Botox', short for Botulinum Toxin, a naturally occurring protein. Botox causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out wrinkles, therefore creating a more natural, rejuvenated appearance. They are one of the most popular cosmetic treatment procedures performed in the UK.
 
The injections work by temporarily freezing the muscle so that wrinkles cannot be produced by muscle contraction. Areas that are most commonly treated are frown lines, forehead lines and 'crow’s feet' lines around the eyes.
 
A number of companies produce anti-wrinkle injections and go by the registered trade names of Botox, Vistabel and Dysport.
