botox-areasWhat is BOTOX?

Botulinum toxin A (Botox®) is used in cosmetic aesthetic medicine. Botox treatments temporarily relax the injected muscles, therefore reducing movement. This reduced movement prevents creasing of the skin, hence reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox treatments work only on the specific muscles injected, leaving surrounding muscles to function as usual maintaining normal facial expression.

Using a very small amount of diluted Botox® via a very fine needle to minimize discomfort with a knowledgeable technique allows the muscles to be relaxed in a controlled manner. It is used in areas of the face where there are dynamic wrinkles particularly on the upper face and is very effective with excellent results in smoothing out lines such as frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. It can be used to prevent wrinkle developing as often prevention is better than a cure.

Wrinkle reduction is noticeable in 3-5 days with full effects being achieved by 2 weeks. Results last about 3 months after which the treatment can be repeated. Individual results may vary.

Side effects are extremely rare but can include discomfort, tingling and slight swelling at site of injections. It is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available.There is the possibility, however, of the treatment being dispersed into an adjacent muscle which can cause a temporary weakness such as drooping of the upper eyelid. These effects are temporary, lasting a few weeks at most.
