BOTOX®

Will I need a consulation of Botox?


Absolutely. It is import to establish what your expectations and concerns are. It is also important to do a full medical history check even if you have been treated elsewhere in the past. This initial consultation will include taking confidential photos and going through the consent process to make sure you are aware of all aspects of the treatment.




What is Botox and how can it be used?


Botox is a prescription medicine made from a naturally occurring purified protein which relaxes muscles causing them to reduce or stop contracting.

Botox is best used to reduce fine lines caused by muscle movements such as crows feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. Over time the permanent (static) lines will soften and occasionally completely reduce.




How long does the treatment take and last for?


After your initial consultation and consent process, you can expect the treatment to take around 10 -15 minutes. This procedure has little to no pain and there is no need for numbing or post care interventions.

The downtime following treatment is minimal with the possibility of slight swelling and redness for around 30 mins.

The effects of the Botox treatment can last between 3-4 months and over a period of time of regular use people find this can become extended.




What are the side effects of Botox?


There are no serious or long term side effects of Botox known to date. Occasionally people experience slight swelling at the sign of injection, redness and the possibility of bruising. Mineral powder can be worn to cover these after 4 hours if needed.
