What does Botox treatment involve?
Very small amounts of Botulinum Toxin are injected into the target areas using a tiny needle. This blocks the impulse from the nerve to the facial muscles, reducing the contractions that cause wrinkles. Following the treatment the skin over the muscles looks smooth and even.
Does the Botox Injection Hurt?
The needle used is very fine and only a tiny amount of substance is used so pain is minimal. No sedation or local anesthesia is required.
How soon will I see results from Botox?
You’ll start noticing improvements in two to three days. The overall effects will be visible in about a week.
How long will results from Botox Last?
The effects from Botox can last from three up to six months, at which point you can book a top up treatment. Clinical studies indicate that this treatment has a cumulative effect, so you should need fewer injections as time goes on.
Are there any side effects from Botox?
Only tiny amounts of Botulinum Toxin are used, so this treatment is not harmful. The most common side effects are temporary and localised bruising, slight redness of the skin and occasionally slight swelling at the injection site.
