Botox® Treatment

Botox temporarily relaxes chosen muscles causing a reduction of lines and wrinkles, softening the appearance of skin and facial expressions. Botox can be the answer to fight the first signs of ageing or the appearance of facial creases or wrinkles, frown lines and/or crow’s feet. Face wrinkles are a result of over-activity of facial muscles pulling in a certain manner and direction so, over time,  facial creases appear relating to particular habits.

Botox injections, can be ideal in achieving the ultimate in anti-ageing effect, rejuvenating a youthful, smooth appearance.

How does Botox® work?

Botox (Botulinum toxin) works by freezing the chosen facial muscles in the area of concern and temporarily, but effectively paralyses it for 3-6months. Not only does this reduce and even eliminate the wrinkle lines, it can even result in the muscle habit being broken, preventing further ageing lines and wrinkles.

Therefore, unlike off-the-shelf anti-ageing skin or eye creams that masks ageing lines, Botox can help to actively eliminate wrinkle lines and can even help prevent them from forming.

How long does Botox® take to administer?

The actual administration of Botox treatment usually only takes 5-10 minutes, depending on the number of areas treated. By your facial aesthetics practitioner will take some time before hand discussing and accurately planning which muscle to target.  It’s not a painful procedure, not dissimilar to having acupuncture therefore, local anaesthetic is not usually required. If requested we can apply topical anaesthetic cream 20-30 minutes before treatment to help with any tenderness at the injection site.
