What is Botulinum Toxin (Botox) and how does it work?
  • Botulinum toxin was approved by the fda in 1980 and has been safely used in patients since then. In the cosmetic industry the toxin is used to help relax and smooth wrinkles by blocking the movement of the muscles which cause them. Small injections are made into the area of concern and after 5-7 days the effects start to show, lasting for 3-6 months before returning to normal.

What should I expect from the treatment?
  • It is important to have a full consultation before your treatment takes place. After you have been identified as a good candidate for anti wrinkle treatment you can expect to have very fine multiple injections into the area of your concern. After 5-7 days the muscles will relax and the skin will appear smoother and refreshed with less wrinkles. Treatment effects will last from 3-6 months after which the area treated will return to its pre-treatment state.

Are there any risks or side effects?
  • Some patients report minor immediate after effects such as a mild flu like feeling or headache which quickly subsides. There may also be mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites. There is a small risk of uneven result or drooping of the eyes/brow, some of which can be improved by additional injections and others need time for the treatment to wear off. In this case the clinician will advise the best option for you.
