ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS USING BOTOX®
What Is It?
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) is an injectable pharmaceutically manufactured product which affects the nerves and the muscle that those nerves feed into. The toxin temporarily paralyses the muscle and prevents it from working. Areas not treated continue to work as normal.
How Long Does It Take?
Treatments take 15-20mins depending on the areas treated. You will be asked some questions regarding your medical history and asked to read and sign a consent form.
How Long Does It Last?
Muscle movement generally returns between 4 and 6 months and negative signs of ageing return to their original (or sometimes better) state e.g. frown lines between the eyebrows.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Sometimes patients experience a headache after the treatment as it begins to work. Alternatively, there may be some disparity in the effect of the treatment and a "touch up" may be required. Sometimes, Botox® can cause a drooping of the eyelid/eyebrow or assymetry to facial expression but every effort is made to minimize this risk.
