Allergan Botox®/Injectable Wrinkle Treatments



What are the benefits of Allergan Botox®?

Allergan Botox® is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles around the forehead and under the eyes. However, it is more effective when used as a preventative measure, which is why many younger men and women are undergoing Allergan Botox® in their 20s. Allergan Botox® is also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, otherwise known as excessive sweating.

How does Allergan Botox® work?

Allergan Botox® is a drug derived from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. When injected, it blocks nerve transmission to muscles, which paralyses or freezes the area. So, the affected muscle cannot contract, relax or soften, which is what prevents wrinkles from forming.

How long do results last for?

Allergan Botox® takes just 20 to 30 minutes and can be completed in a lunch hour. You should start to see effects in a couple of hours with the full result forming in around 7 to 10 days. The results can last anywhere between 8 - 12 weeks and sometimes longer.
