How does Botox work?
When a Botox injection enters the skin, it begins to block the chemical signals from the nerves to the muscles, disabling them ensuring the muscle cannot contract. This action results in a temporary muscle relaxation which helps to soften and relax wrinkles in order to give a fresh, more relaxed appearance.
Botox is most often used on forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet (around the eyes), but it can also be used for medical conditions such as chronic migraines and Hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating).
Duration of treatment – A 30 minute initial consultation will be required with subsequent treatments of 15 to 30 minutes.
Anaesthesia required – None.
Downtime – Slight erythema (redness) and small raised bumps may appear; these will resolve within 30 minutes. It is important not to lie down or partake in any vigorous exercise for 4 hours post treatment.
Final results – The client should expect to see a relaxed fresher appearance with fine lines and wrinkles softened and reduced.
Suitable for – Anyone with fine lines and wrinkles. Particularly good for frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.
