Botox® is a purified protein (not a dermal filler) that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a smoothed and improved appearance. It involves a small injection into the muscle to block nerve impulses that trigger the wrinkle causing contractions. It is simple, quick and minimally invasive that delivers dramatic results with no downtime. Botox® is not permanent and there are no permanent side effects, effects are seen 3-10 days following treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The natural looking results gradually take effect over the two weeks following your treatment and can last up to 3 or 6 months. We advise our patients to expect peak results after 4 to 6 weeks and to bear this in mind when planning for a special event. Therefore, if you have a special event coming up we recommend making your appointment for BOTOX® 6 – 8 weeks before the event. This also leaves time for a touch up if necessary.
