Botox is a highly purified toxin that can temporarily erase or reduce facial wrinkles, by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles. It’s made from a purified version of the neurotoxin botulinum toxin, made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. We administer Neurobloc Botox (Type B) for clients who are resistant to Botulinum Toxin (Type A). Other brands certified in the medical and cosmetic field include Azzulure, Bocouture, Dysport, Vistabel and Xeomin, and we’ll discuss which is the best for you during your consultation.
This treatment is suitable for both men and women over the age of 18. Please bear in mind we can’t treat pregnant ladies, nursing mothers, or people with muscle-wasting conditions.
The Botox process itself is quite simple. We give the affected areas a small Botox injection. It doesn’t hurt, but some people feel mild discomfort. Sometimes the injection can cause a slight circular swelling where you’ve been treated, which will disappear within a few hours.
You can expect good results after a just one Botox session. It usually takes about five days for the results to start to show, and two weeks to reach the maximum effect. You will need to come back for a review at the clinic after two weeks.
