Botulinium toxin, better known as Botox, has been used for several years as a cosmetic application, as it dramatically improves the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily paralysing facial muscles (and it can also be used to treat other conditions, including spasms and excessive sweating).

Results can be visible after three to five days from application and last up to three to four months. The procedure is quick, simple, and almost completely pain free. A tiny amount of Botulinium is injected in the problem areas and the process lasts seconds.

It’s important to choose a doctor who is licensed to administer it, who has several years experience and who truly cares about their patients’ looks and wellbeing. Renowned aesthetic doctor and GP Preema Vig is one of the best in the business. She doesn’t simply provide the service, but she advises on the best route of treatment (and she even refuses to do it if she doesn’t think it’s suitable for somebody!) and truly cares about making you look your best.

There’s no frozen or ‘scared’ effect with Dr Preema, who prefers to err on the side of caution and go for a natural look rather than overdo the Botox (and she always offers a follow up appointment, where more Botulinium can be injected if needed). She is also great at advising on a few guidelines post treatment, such as not lying down for a few hours, avoiding facials for two weeks, skipping intense exercise for a couple of days after and more.

Botox is the non invasive treatment that guarantees results.
