The History of Botox®

Just over 26 years ago, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Botox® for cosmetic use. However, it’s been around for much longer than that – it was discovered in the 1820s, and has been used in a medical context since 1950s!

Botox® injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world with over 6 million treatments administered every year. Botox® isn’t just used for aesthetics purposes, but also for treating medical conditions such as excessive sweating (Hyperhydrosis), migraines, twitching muscles and even vision problems!

Read below a brief timeline of the history of Botox® from when it was first discovered and it’s many uses over the years:

Bunny Bunny

Avoid those ‘Bunny Lines’ this Easter

Everybody loves the Easter Bunny, but that doesn’t mean we want the bunny lines to match!

Also called nasoglabellar lines, ‘Bunny Lines’ are the wrinkles that appear at top of the nose when you scrunch your nose (like a rabbit!), caused by repetitive movements by the muscle such as smiling or squinting.

Nose to Mouth Lines Dermal Filler Treatment – Competition Winner and Videos

The area between the nose and mouth can show one of the first signs of ageing; as we get older, the lines between the nostrils and the outside corners of the mouth can become deeper and more prominent, which can exacerbate the look of sagging cheeks, especially when smiling – which is why these lines are also known as smile lines.

By injecting Dermal Fillers into the Nose to Mouth Lines, it can plump out the Nasolabial folds, which can help to give a refreshed look by reducing the shadow that these folds create.

Helena Demonstrates the Nefertiti Lift Live at our Grand Opening Evening

Last week we opened our doors to our brand new clinic in Chorlton, and Helena demoed one of our most transformative treatments – the Nefertiti Lift.

Named after Queen Nefertiti – famed for her defined jaw and sculpted neck, the Nefertiti Lift uses Wrinkle Relaxing Injections (‘Botox’) to the jawline and neck that lifts and tightens the skin around the area to provide a natural refreshed and more youthful look without the need for surgery.

I have visited Helena several times over the years and the service and results have been first class. Helena is always welcoming and friendly, but above all a highly skilled practitioner. The new salon in Chorlton is beautiful, spotless, and very discreet! Highly recommended.
