Wrinkle-Relaxing Treatment

BOTOX® TREATMENT REVERSES SIGNS OF AGEING AND DELAYS THE ONSET OF DEEP PERMANENT FACIAL LINES

Botox Before and After

BOTOX® Botulinum Toxin

Botox® (Botulinum toxin type ‘A’) is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The FDA has granted its approval for this use. Worldwide, now more than 3 million Botox® treatments take place per year.

The most common facial muscles and lines to treat are the ‘Crow’s Feet’, ‘Frown lines’ and Forehead areas.

Botox is also used to relax jaw muscles (masseters), and to prevent excessive sweating of armpits, hands and feet.

How does Botox work?

We inject Botox® into the facial muscles that are responsible for fine lines. 

The botulinum toxin works by blocking the transmission of signals from the nerve ending to the muscle. This causes temporary controlled paralysis, which results in the reduction or loss of wrinkles. 

We expect to see results up to ten days from the day of botox treatment.

The desired outcome is to reduce deep wrinkles on the face during expression while looking as natural as possible.

How long does Botox last?

We tend to see effects last for about six months. Men can sometimes expect shorter times due to more dense muscles. 

Results are temporary because the muscle forms new nerve sprouts. The reset takes about six months when the muscle regains its activity. Lines and wrinkles then start to reappear.

Is Botox safe? Does Botox have any side effects?

Botox is non-toxic and safe for patient use when it is administered by a medical professional. 

There may be slight swelling or bruising after treatment, though patients can hide this with makeup. The procedure is virtually painless.

Side effects sometimes include a brief headache on the day of the botox injections. 

Do wrinkles get worse after Botox?

As with all cosmetic treatments, the patient will be better off after the procedure. Once the effects fade the patient’s muscles will return to their original shape, and the fine lines will reappear. 

However, the lines will not be any worse than if the Botox had not been done.
