What is BOTOX


Botox is one of the trade names for Botulinum toxin. There are other brands available which are not as well known as Botox, but contain the same active ingredient and have the same effects; these include: Azzalure, Xeomin, and Dysport. 

A solution of tiny amounts of the protein is injected just below the skin surface into specific muscles. Strange as this may sound, many medicines are derived from bacteria and fungi - penicillin being the best example. The bacterium produces a protein which blocks messages to the muscles telling it to contract. Once messages are blocked, muscles relax and smooth out. Botox is used in large amounts medically to relieve muscle spasm in conditions including strokes and cerebral palsy. Botox has been used cosmetically for many years. The effect is temporary and reversible.

Are the effects immediate?

It takes between 4 - 14 days for Botox to take effect. The treatment itself takes only minutes.

Does it hurt?

It is an injection and so there is some associated mild and short lived discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Botox has been use medically in much larger amounts for decades for treating muscle spasm in children and adults. Cosmetic doses are much smaller and so have reduced side effect profile. As it is an injection, there is a risk of bruising but they are small and easily disguised. Avoid alcohol, aspirin and St JohnÕs Wort before treatment to help reduce the risk of bruises.

How long does it last?

The results can last for 3 - 6 months, with the average first treatment lasting about 4 months. After this time, the lines starts to gradually form again as the muscles start to react again. With time, it lasts longer as you break the habit of frowning.

How often do I need botox?

The first treatment lasts about 3 - 6 months. After this, it should last 4 - 6 months as the lines are already reduced. As lines and wrinkles gradually start to return (though they will be less established) many people wish to have a repeat treatment after about 4 - 6 months.

Do the wrinkles come back worse?

No. As you've not been wrinkling the skin for months, the lines take longer to form and so you've effectively given that area a holiday from wrinkling. You are also breaking the habit of frowning and looking stern and stressed and the frown lines are reduced.

Who can carry out botox treatments?

Only medically qualified health professionals can carry out Botox procedures - nurses, doctors, pharmacists and dentists. Do not go to anyone who is not medically qualified, as it is not legal for them to prescribe or hold stock of botox. 

What are the risks?

f the Botox is injected into the wrong areas or diffuses into the wrong areas, you may get a temporary droopy eyelid or brow. To prevent this, all that needs to be done is to avoid those areas. Although very rare, there is a risk of allergy. Please ensure that you see a medically qualified practitioner. All of our practitioners are medically qualified and experienced in injecting Botox.
