It is a sad but true fact that none of us is getting any younger, however, we can slow down the process of ageing. Wrinkles appear on our skin due to facial expressions (frowning, smiling etc) and often show the process of ageing.
What we can do?
We can smooth out the wrinkles that appear with age using Botox. This non-surgical procedure is effective and quick allowing you to continue with your life without any downtime.
What is Botox?
Botox is a protein that modifies nerve impulses allowing the facial muscles to relax. This mechanism reduces or eliminates frown lines such as wrinkles on the forehead; frown lines and crows feet around the eyes. It also smooth’s out the complexion.
How is the treatment done?
Trained registered professionals carry out all our treatments. The treatment can be used with or/ without anaesthetic cream. A measured dose in a tiny needle is placed in specific areas around the wrinkles. Treatment time is approximately 20 minutes without the numbing cream or 1 hour with the numbing cream (have to wait 45 minutes for cream to dissolve).
Is Botox safe/ are there any side effects?
Botox has been used for over 20 years on thousands of patients without any serious side effects. The more common side effects are a bit of bruising, swelling and redness, which typically disappear after 30 minutes after treatment. Botox has become more popular in recent years as people view it as a safer alternative to more invasive procedures such as face-lifts
Will my wrinkles disappear forever?
No. The effects of Botox last for 4 to 6 months and the effects gradually fade. It is advised to consult the doctor if you would like to repeat the treatment. The effects of Botox last longer with continuous treatment. Most people have treatment every 3 to 4 months to keep the effects “Topped up”.
Who is not suitable for Botox treatment?
- Pregnant women
- People with conditions that affect the nerves or muscles
