Botox – What is it?
A protein that when injected into a muscle will cause that muscle to temporarily stop contracting which results in reduced line formation.
How is it given?
Botox is administered using a small needle / syringe into the target areas, which can be the forehead, and around the eyes. It is injected just under the surface of the skin.
Will it hurt?
The procedure itself should be relatively pain free – you will feel a slight scratch from the needle but it should not be painful. There is no need for any anaesthetic to be given prior.
How long will it take?
The administration takes around about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the individual.
When will I see results?
You should begin to feel and see the effects of the Botox within 3 – 14 days. This is why we ask you to come back for a follow up after 14 days to assess the effects.
How long will the Botox last?
The effects of the Botox should be around 3 – 4 months, again this depends on the individual – no one person is the same. Regular treatments prevent the skin from creasing and that can keep new wrinkles from forming as well as smoothing out the existing ones.
Will I look like a Desperate Housewife?
NO. The Botox being offered is designed to create a natural look. We are aiming to cause reduced muscle movement across the forehead and around the eyes which in turn will lead to less line formation and over time will result in a softening of the lines which already exist. You will still have movement, but it will not result in line
formation. Again this various from person to person.
Will I need to take time off work?
The procedure requires no down time from work. There is a slight possibility that some bruising may occur at the injection site but if it does it will be slight and clears up in a short while.
Is it safe?
Botox has safely been used for over 30 years. An allergy history will be taken during assessment to determine if there is an increased allergy risk, but as with all food and
medications there is a risk.
