Botox Treatment

Botox Treatment is one of the best known and popular non-surgical treatments for treating lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, laughing and frowning. It is used to prevent the muscle contractions that cause furrows and fine lines when the face is making expressions. All our anti-ageing injectable treatments are carried out by cosmetic doctors who are highly trained and experienced in the art of facial aesthetics. In their experienced hands Botox is used in an artistic way to restore a relaxed and more youthful appearance to the face, lending a subtle lift to the brows. In addition to the treatment of frown lines and wrinkles Botox is also used to treat Hyperhydrosis (Excessive Sweating)

3. Is there any pain during Botox injection?

6. How often should a patient have Botox treatment to maintain the desired results?
To maintain the desired look and results, it is advisable to have Botox treatments every 4 to 6 months. Delaying the succeeding treatments can be made as the age lines and wrinkles become lighter.
7. Which type of wrinkles respond best to Botox injections?
Only dynamic wrinkles respond positively to Botox injections. Wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes are the most responsive.
Wrinkles due to sun damage and aging will not improve through Botox injections as these types of wrinkles do not involve muscle contractions.
8. How does Botox treatment work for wrinkles?
Botox blocks the nerve signals that trigger the facial muscle contractions that produce facial lines or wrinkles. The muscles are immobilized by Botox, hence, softening and preventing the formation of age lines.
9. Are there any risks? There are very minimal, and often rare, risks and side effects associated with Botox. Headache, flu-like symptoms, temporary redness, swelling, tiny pinching sensations and bruising are the most common side effects that usually fade over time.
No fatal systemic side effects have been reported from locally administering Botox injections for facial wrinkles.
A memory response may develop with repeated Botox?injections if they are done every 3 months for approximately one-year. So, although the effects are not permanent, there may be a gradual lengthening of the time interval between treatments. This will mean fewer treatments to obtain the same effect! Botox is a safe, non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation. BOTOX Treatment must be taken under the expert supervision of Cosmetic Surgeons.
