Botox®

Botox is a local muscle relaxant adapted from the botulinum toxin type-A and is used in both aesthetic and therapeutic indications. For aesthetic purposes It is used to temporarily relax underlying muscles to reduce unwanted lines and wrinkles to provide a more youthful appearance. Medically it can be used to minimise headaches, reduces excessive sweating and can help to relax jaw muscles for teeth clenching. Yes, we use genuine Botox, which has been safely used for over 20 years in a range of medical and cosmetic applications.

What does the treatment involve?

For Botox (registered trade mark please always) treatment a 30 minute appointment is required and includes a full consultation prior to treatment. Some initial redness and swelling may occur for the first 24hrs and you may experience some minor bruising, which can last up to 7 days. You will see results of your Botox treatment in 1-2 weeks. The Botox will gradually soften lines over this period by relaxing the muscles.
