What is Botox?
Known as Botulinum Toxin, Botox is a medicine approved by the FDA that is a very small protein naturally created by bacteria named Botulin and used in its purified form.
History of Botox as a Muscle Relaxant
Created decades ago for treating medical conditions, it has only been 10 years since Botox has been approved for cosmetic use. Initially deployed to treat muscle spasms and excessive sweating, the neurotoxin quickly became a celebrity and non-celebrity favourite in just a few years with its dramatic and foolproof results that never failed. Originally targeted at older women, the youth started jumping on in the Botox bonanza in no time, as a preventive measure and to delay pre-mature ageing. In 1950’s, Botulinum toxin (Botox), a miniscule protein’s medical use was only restricted to treating muscle spasms and crossed eyes as it was not until the 1990’s when an eye surgeon and a physician realised its cosmetic importance when their patients loved the effects it had on blurring their wrinkles and softening frown lines.
How does Botox work as an anti-wrinkle treatment?
Before being introduced into the muscle of the concerned area, Botox is highly diluted before being injected with a needle that is thinner than hair. Most patients do not feel the effect of the needle on their skin due to it being ultra fine as well as depending on the skill of the trained nurse or doctor.When the fluid is initially injected into the muscle, small bumps temporarily appear on the injected area which disappears in approximately 15 minutes as the fluid is absorbed, leaving the patient with absolutely no recovery period at all and all set to continue with their daily life.Nerve impulses in the human body are responsible for sending signals to the muscles which cause them to cause contractions (frowns or scowls), forming vertical lines such as an ’11’ between the eye brows. What Botox does is that it blocks the communication of these signals leading patients to frown and scowl to a lesser degree hence keeping wrinkles and fine lines at bay.
The latest advancements in Botox technology
Botox is known to be the most popular and modern, anti-ageing cosmetic procedure since decades due to its non-invasive properties, meaning that no scalpel is used or scarring caused as is done in traditional cosmetic surgery such as a face lift. Although the dramatic results are highly similar to that of a face lift as witnessed by patients from across the globe, the convenience, accessibility, virtually no recovery period and no emotional or physical trauma of Botox keeps it in line with the technological developments of today and makes it consumers number one choice of treatment worldwide.
Is Botox treatment safe?
The treatment has been a media favourite since the time it has been used for cosmetic purposes such as treating wrinkles and frown lines. The only reason for such controversies has been when people have tried to misuse the drug or tried it without medical supervision. If carried out by a qualified doctor or a nurse in a clinical environment, as is done by Shumaila’s in Greater London, the substance is safe for all skin types, genders and ages as approved by the FDA in 2002 after clinical trials.

Who can have Botox and when?
Botox is known to remove unwanted wrinkles and fine lines from the face but also act as an anti-ageing measure to prevent their formation in the first place. As skin loses elasticity over time which is the primary reason for the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, Botox is suitable for both men and women who want flawless, young looking skin regardless of their age or gender.
What will I be required to do in Botox?
All you will be asked at a Botox session at Shumaila’s by a qualified Doctor or a Nurse is to frown or scowl to determine your muscle movement. This will help us determine the perfect spot for injections so you can see guaranteed effective results. One or more injections will be administered based on what package you have opted for and what areas of the face you want covered by this procedure. A mild insect bite feeling is all you will feel during this time, with most of our patients reporting almost no feeling of discomfort at all.
Where can I have Botox on the face?
- Crows feet near the eye area
- Frown lines between the brows that form the number ’11’
- Horizontal forehead lines (usually refereed to as expression lines)
- Corners of the mouth
When will I see Botox results and how long will they last?
You will be able to witness dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin texture and the disappearing lines in 3 days and the results of the treatment last up to 6 months, which can be topped up later if you want to extend the results.
Skincare benefits of Botox
It leaves skin looking younger, rejuvenated and revitalised for six months alongside eliminating prominent appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines and pronounced wrinkles.
Wrinkle free skin gives the illusion of a younger, relaxed and a calm looking face automatically, with anti-ageing skincare demonstrating more benefits consequently and application of cosmetics enhanced further due to a smooth skin canvas.
Patients have noticed they don’t need topical cosmetic primers or wrinkle fillers after a Botox session and can flaunt bare skin with greater confidence than before hence crediting Botox to improving most aspects of their social and professional life.
