Some of these side effects may include mild redness and swelling around the injections sights which can last up to an hour.

Botox costs between £150-300 per session which equates to what you might spend on a shopping spree or having your hair done at a salon. It is a great investment for guaranteed anti-ageing results which have been scientifically proven.
