In the wake of a string of negative press, together they worked hard to dispel anxiety around Botox injections, and Dermal fillers.

As the stresses and strains of daily life take there toll on our youthful appearance, it's becoming far more acceptable to have more drastic beauty treatments, in combating the signs of ageing.

With horror stories of facial paralysis , and scandals like PIP (Breast implants made from industrial fibers ), started to unfold, the government seemed poised to legislate the industry better. An look to who should be allowed to carry out more simpler procedures, such as Botox and Fillers.

It's fair to say Botox, has taken quite a lot of heat over the years, for cosmetic use. On the upside, the medical benefits of Botox have finally been recognised, recently becoming approved on the NHS to treat migraines.

Patients are injected in the skin between the eyes, as research has shown the frowning of muscle s in the forehead area can cause the migraine to form.

As well as the medical and cosmetic benefits of Botox, Indirect benefits reported by Botox and Demo filler patients include: feeling more positive (caused by the feeling they have achieved the look they want)
