Botox

What is Botox?

Botox treatments are injected beneath the skin to eliminate wrinkles by relaxing the muscles of the face.

Botox injections are commonly used for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and neck lines. This treatment helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure involves injection of small amounts of Botox either into the muscle or under the skin. It can take up to 2 weeks for full effects of medicine to appear and effects can last between 3-4 months.

Botox works best on people who have dynamic wrinkles. So, people from their mid-twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a Botox treatment, especially if you have a dynamic wrinkle which is deep when you move your muscles during facial expression.  Although most people are good candidates for wrinkle reduction treatments, if you are pregnant, taking certain medications, or have specific conditions, some treatments may not be right for you.

Many of our patients find that our wrinkle reducing treatments are great alternatives to invasive plastic surgery procedures such as a facelifts or eye lifts.

These treatments are safe and have been used on millions of patients worldwide.

Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Botox treats hyperhidrosis and prevents profuse perspiration by blocking off the nerves beneath the skin that lead to the sweat glands. This prevents signals from reaching the sweat glands and triggering the start of moisture production.  

Botox for Migraines

In a migraine, it is thought that Botox stops the proteins involved in pain transmission to the brain. Overall, scientists suggest that Botox somehow alters the nerves that transmit pain messages to the brain as well as providing relaxation to muscles.

These treatments are safe and have been used on millions of patients worldwide.
