What happens during Botox treatment?

Botox is generally utilised for smoothing lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. It is most effective on active wrinkles that are caused by facial expressions, eliminating up to 80% of imperfections.
The treatment involves injecting a type of botulinum toxin into your facial muscles. The injections paralyze and relax the muscles, giving a younger-looking appearance.

How long does the procedure take and what is the recovery time?
Botox is an inexpensive non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to diminish wrinkles. It is quick to perform and requires virtually no downtime. Once the areas to be treated have been decided upon, the injections take a matter of moments for each area.

Before you undergo Botox treatment:

• Ensure that you haven’t taken and blood thinning medication or aspirin during the previous week
• Do not wear make up at your appointment
• Use ice packs if you have any bruising or swelling
After your Botox treatment:
• Do not touch your skin where you have had the injections inside the first 24 hours. Rubbing the area could spread the Botox to unintended muscles.
• Avoid strenuous activity
• Do not have a facial in the first 24 hours
• If you experience any swelling, use ice packs

You are advised to avoid lying down for several hours after the procedure, and you may experience swelling, bruising, redness and possibly some bleeding at the injection site. This normally only lasts a few hours, but could last for 1-2 days if you have sensitive skin.

The results are temporary and will generally last for three to five months, and the procedure will need to be repeated on a regular basis.
