Anti Wrinkle (Botox®)
A popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment is Wrinkle Relaxing Injections, commonly known as Botox®. This quick and easy procedure can be used to erase or soften dynamic facial lines and wrinkles caused by expressions, in areas such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, frown lines and glabella lines. We can also provide a non-surgical brow lift.
Botox® is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world, with over three million procedures taking place in the world every year. It is a very safe product that has had years of documented scientific research.
Treatment is relatively quick, with the toxin injected into a few specific areas with an extremely fine needle, which means the procedure is very comfortable. The amount of product injected will dictate whether or not the muscle movement is completely frozen or whether there is some movement.
After your treatment it will take a few days (normally 5 days) for you to start to notice the positive effects of the toxin working, and some patients take up to two weeks to see its full effect. Treatment effects typically last between two and four months.
Frequently Asked Questions
Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily preventing the contraction of a muscle.
Botox lasts for around 3-4 months depending on the client.
Treatment time is usually around 15 minutes.
During a Botox treatment, Nayema will administer a controlled amount of tiny injections of Botox into the patient using a very small needle. The procedure is relatively pain free.
Botox results can be seen after a few days, with the full effect becoming visible in around 2 weeks.
The best time to consider having Botox® is when you begin to notice that your dynamic lines (these are the wrinkles that only appear through expression) appear regardless of expression and form even when static. Botox® works best at this stage, rather than with deeply etched lines, which are more difficult to smooth the appearance of later on.
The longer you wait, the more invasive the treatments for wrinkles become.
Areas that Botox can treat include:
Frown lines – area between the brows
Crow’s feet – around eyes
Bunny lines – on the bridge of the nose
Medical conditions – such as migraines, excessive sweating (Sweatox)
