What is Botox®?

Botulinum toxin (Botox®) is a purified protein and is a safe and effective wrinkle relaxation treatment. The most common use of Botox injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles, thus preventing wrinkles from developing or worsening.

 

What is the downtime?

Usually, you can return to work immediately, although we recommend that you stay away from any strenuous activity until the next day. There may be some initial swelling or redness where the injection points were made but this usually settles after 20-30 minutes.

 

Does it hurt?

A very tiny needle is all that is needed for the procedure with little to no discomfort. A numbing cream can be applied to the area if desired.

 

When will I notice results?

The results are gradual and it usually takes up to 2 weeks for the Botox to take full effect.

 

How long will results last?

This depends entirely on the patient and depends on a variety of factors such as age, lifestyle, genetics etc but a Botox treatment will normally be sustained for approximately three months. On average the effects last between 3-4 months. If someone keeps to their appointments, the Botox can have a longer-lasting effect due to the muscle relaxing enough that it breaks the habit of consistent hypercontraction.

 

Areas that can be treated

Forehead lines, Frown lines, Crows feet, Chin, Gummy Smile correction, Bunny lines (wrinkles on top of your nose), Underarm sweating

 

As with any injections, there is always a risk of bruising and if that happens, it can take between 5-7 days to clear. It is best to avoid exercise, alcohol and blood thinning supplements, like Vitamin K and Omega 3 at least 24 hours before and after your treatment to minimise the risk of bruising.
