What is Botox?
Botox is Allergan’s trade-name for the protein and neurotoxin Botolinum Toxin. The protein is used cosmetically as a muscle relaxing injection for the treatment of wrinkles.
As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and dynamic wrinkles begin to form.
Botox is the most effective skin treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements.
Lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out and you’ll be left with a youthful, glowing appearance.
None. You can go back to work with none of your friends or colleagues the wiser.
Some of your questions answered
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.
The needle used is very fine and only a tiny amount of substance is used so pain is minimal. No sedation or local anaesthesia is required.
Approximately fifteen minutes. You can then get straight back to work!
You’ll start noticing improvements in two to three days. The overall effects will be visible in about a week.
The effects 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.
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.
