Facial Aesthetics - Botox


What is Botox® treatment?
It is a non-surgical treatment used to reduce skin lines and wrinkles using a naturally occurring protein (BTX-A), produced by Clostridium Botulinum.

In a purified form BTX-A is a very safe and effective treatment, not only used in cosmetic clinics but also for a number of medical conditions, including migraine and excessive sweating.

How does it work?
It stops muscles from contracting so that the muscle stays in a resting state for a period of 8 to 12 weeks on average.

This may be only a partial reduction in movement, allowing some remaining movement or a full block in which case there is very little remaining muscular movement in the area. Treatment may be tailored to suit your individual requirements.

Does it hurt?
A very fine needle is used and generally this treatment is not painful and can be well tolerated with no anesthetic. You may have very little discomfort which is short lived.

What is it used to treat?
The aim of treatment is to reduce the movement of the muscles causing expression lines (dynamic lines), specifically- frown lines, crow's feet (lines to the side of the eyes) and worry lines on the forehead.

BTX-A is not suitable for lines present without expression (static lines), your practitioner will advise you.

Other treatments include: lip lines, chin 'poppling', muscles on the lower face, lifting the mouth corners, improving the jaw line and the appearance of the neck. The 'chewing muscle' may also be treated to soften a square jaw or to prevent teeth grinding or jaw clenching at night. It is also used to treat excessive sweating in underarms and palms.

Are there any adverse effect?
BTX-A has been used extensively for about 15 years by many people with no serious side effects. You may experience some minor swelling, redness or bruising at the treatment site but this clears very quickly so there is minimal downtime.

How soon will you see results?
It is expected that you will start to see improvement within 4-10 days. For some people this takes longer. The full result may be judged at 2-3 weeks.

How long will it last?
Results tend to last 3-4 months. Movement will begin recovering from 8 weeks. Frequent treatment at intervals of less than 3 months is not recommended. Repeating treatment when movement recovers will deliver optimum results over time.
