We have tried all the lotions and potions containing rare ingredients from the most remote parts of the world, in the quest for younger looking skin. However, sometimes no-matter how hard a product works, it can only do so much. For real results, some of us have been turning to anti-wrinkle injectables aka Botox for a number of years now, though not so many of us are openly admitting to it. Therapie Clinic, Shop Street, Galway, has reported a record demand and a lengthy waiting list for the treatment.

The benefits of botulinum toxin have been known for more than a century, but not until 1980 was the toxin found to be useful for a number of medical problems. Injections of this toxin have been used in cosmetic medicine since the early nineties.
Botox injections work by weakening or paralysing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to four months. It is used to help with frown lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
