Botulinum Toxin is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed worldwide. Fresh statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that in 2011, over 5.7 million Botulinum Toxin Type A procedures were carried out in the United States, which is a 5% increase over the previous year.
Botulinum Toxin is equally popular in the United Kingdom, with more and more day spas popping up around the country, offering a variety of injectable treatments.
While Botulinum Toxin injection was initially carried out only by highly trained plastic surgeons or dermatologists, today many medical and para-medical professionals are undertaking B – Toxin training and starting clinics devoted to injectable cosmetic treatments. Today, doctors, dentists, nurses and midwives are learning how to inject B – Toxin and more recently highly trained non-medics/aestheticians have begun integrating injectable aesthetic treatments into their treatment salons.
What is Botulinum Toxin
Botulinum Toxin is the brand name for Botulinum Toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin that paralyses muscles. It is through this mechanism that B – Toxin relaxes the muscles of the face that cause wrinkles due to facial expression. The treatment is generally safe and temporary. The effects last only 3-6 months on average and leave no lasting effects. For clients that are satisfied and who want to maintain the effect, they need to return on a regular basis in order to maintain the results.
