What is Botox?
Botox is a purified protein, known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, which when injected into a muscle causes a temporary muscular relaxation. This produces an improvement in wrinkling on the face caused by the actions of the facial muscles. Botox has excellent effects on frown lines (between eyebrows), worry lines (forehead) and laughter lines (crows feet).
Botox can also help lift the corners of the mouth that sag due to age, smooth out the pin-cushion look in some chins, soften smoker's lines around the mouth, and soften vertical neck lines.
What Botox does it feel like?
The treatment involves a small number of painless injections of the Botox solution into the muscle groups that are causing the wrinkling. The full effect on the muscle develops in the following 3-10 days.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is considered a very safe treatment. It has been widely used in the cosmetic industry for the last 20 years. It is used for many applications in medicine including several indications in children.
There will be a slight discomfort from the needle entering the skin. The needles used are tiny, equivalent to the breadth of a human hair. It is also possible to have anaesthetic cream (EMLA tm) applied at no extra cost. There have been no reported long term effects from the use of Botox.
How long does Botox last?
The effects of Botulinum Toxin last on average six months, some treatments can last up to 8 or 9 months. Once Botox treatment has been established subsequent treatments last even longer.
