BOTOX is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkles causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance. I t is a prescription only medicine and treatment is only available from a qualified medical professional.
BOTOX can be used to relax specific facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles(wrinkles that are formed during facial expressions). Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them preventing undesirable facial expressions. Thus, the lines gradually smoothen and new lines are prevented from forming.
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX will not radically change the facial appearance or make you look as if you have had word done.
BOTOX treatment is a non surgical procedure whereby a smAll amount of Botox is administered into selected facial muscles by a trained doctor using a very fine needle .Generally, a Botox treatment takes around 10 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and an anaesthetic is usually not required, the injection may sting for a few seconds. Normal activities can be resumed soon after.
The dose recommended for the treatment will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your lines.Your doctor will know what is the best dose for you and which muscle to inject and give you the best results.
The effect can last upto 6 months to 1 year before the lines slowly begin to return. The effect tends to last longer with repeated treatments.
