The antiaging benefits of Botox Cosmetic include but are not limited to:
A – Botox® is a purified protein that works by blocking the nerve impulses that engage certain muscles. Within a few days the overlying skin relaxes, smoothing out any undesired wrinkles.
A – Botox® (Clostridium botulinum) is one of the most extensively tested substances in the world and has been used for over 30 years in both cosmetic and therapeutic uses. It is a purified protein (not a toxin or poison) that is perfectly safe. There have been no reported instances of severe allergic reactions or side effects. The results are temporary and Botox® metabolises as a natural organic substance in your body.
A – Depending on the area treated, results appear within 27 days and can last up to 6 months. The effects can be prolonged with regular follow up visits and often last longer with more treatments occurring over time.
A – The procedure is very quick (never longer than 10 minutes) and uses a very tiny needle. It is relatively painless and some patients even find it relaxing. Of course, numbing cream can be used if desired, but it is not necessary.
A – There are no serious side effects but there may be minor redness and/or swelling at the injection site that usually subsides within an hour or so. In rare cases, some patients experience headaches, tightness or bruising but these typically resolve themselves within a few days.
