BOTOX is a safe purified protein that has been used for decades to treat a variety of medical conditions from migraines to fine lines and wrinkles. We have a light hand with BOTOX and administer only the amount needed to provide you with a natural appearance. Your angry, tired or squinty look disappears, but your ability to show expression remains.
HOW IT WORKS
When injected into a muscle, BOTOX blocks its nerve response and temporarily immobilizes it, so when BOTOX is used on muscles that control facial expression, such as the corrugator supercilii muscle of of the forehead and the periorbital muscles around the eyes, it puts them in a state of relaxation causing wrinkles to be less noticeable.
WHAT TO EXPECT
BOTOX Cosmetic procedures are quick with no anesthesia required. Injections are administered with an ultra-fine needle directly into the area being treated. Discomfort is minimal and brief. Typically patients will return directly to work or can resume normal daily activity immediately following
What areas can be treated with BOTOX?
BOTOX treatments can be performed in a number of locations, including between your brows, forehead, eye area, smile lines, chin, neck and underarm. Effects of BOTOX appear within a few days and generally last from 4-6 months.
How long do treatments take?
Depending on the area being treated and the amount of BOTOX needed this procedure will typically last 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Will I experience any Side Effects?
Although rare, BOTOX treatment can cause temporary side effects such as headache, indigestion, drooping eyelids or nausea. However, the possibility of these side effects is greatly lessened if post procedure directives are carefully followed. Your Registered Nurse will explain any other risks that may be associated with the treatment before starting the procedure.
Are there any after- care instructions?
After your treatment your RN will go through any after care instructions with you to maximise your treatment benefits and avoid any undesirable side effects. We advise our patients to remain upright for at least 4 hours and to avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours until the BOTOX has had a chance to set. After this time period, patients should be able to resume all normal activity.
