What is Botox?

Our Botox is fully licensed and comes from France. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin, is a purified protein. There are a number of licensed preparations including Botox, Dysport and Myobloc and they all have similar effects.

Botox treatments have been in medical use for over 30 years and are now the number one procedure for frown lines and bunny lines between the eyebrows.

It is used for the prevention and treatment of unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. It is ideal for removing and preventing brow lines, frown lines, crows feet and bunny lines.

How does it work?

Botox works by relaxing a muscle so that it is unable to create a facial line. Botox can block habitual facial expressions such as frowning that leave crease lines between the eyebrows..

Who is it for?

Anyone from the age of about 28 when wrinkles start or may begin to form due to muscle strength in frowning or loss of collogen and elastin production. It is suited for both male and female clients.

What are the alternatives?

  • Mesotherapy using no needle Botox application.
  • Genie complete non-surgical facelift
  • Fillers

How long does it take to work and will the benefits last?

  • It starts working instantaneously, although we advise 2 weeks after treatment to be able to see the full effects.
  • The first session lasts approximately 4 months but additional sessions will last on average 6 months plus.
  • It is important to build up a residue within the muscle which is why subsequent treatments last longer.

What does the procedure involve?

We thoroughly clean the area with surgical wipes and allocation of injection sights are made. All of the equipment is sterile and disposable. The highest standards of hygiene are adhered to. The whole procedure takes less than half an hour.

Is there any pain or discomfort?

The treatment itself is relatively pain free. Occasionally some clients have headaches after treatment.  We recommend paracetomal or ibropofen.

We do not recommend you fly within a few days of having treatment.

If you are pregnant or breast feeding or have any of the following – Myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, Blood coagulation disorders such as haemophilia – you will not be eligible for this treatment.

Drug interactions can occur when Botox is used concomitantly with other medications. Since these medications can alter the effects of Botox you must ensure that your doctor is aware of any current medications you are taking, especially – Aminoglycoside antibiotics, anaesthetics and muscle relaxants.

Are there any complications or risks?

Botox is generally a safe and effective treatment normally free from complications or side effects if carried out by an experienced practitioner. Thousands of people worldwide have treatments with Botox for both medical and cosmetic reasons and there are presently no long-term safety concerns. Occasionally mild side effects such as bruising or swelling at the injection site, headache, flu like symptoms, temporary drooping of eyebrow or upper eyelid, asymmetry of facial expression, brief visual disturbances, skin rash or itching, allergic reactions, local muscle atrophy if these occur then it is only for a very brief time..

Is there any downtime from the procedure?

There is usually little if any down time unless you experience any of the above complications. Most individuals can simply return to their everyday activity apart from strenuous exercising or lying down in the first 6 hours immediately after the injection procedure.
