WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is an injectable muscle relaxer that works to temporarily paralyse the muscles and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is minimally invasive, and is a highly effective means of treating wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
The Botox formula works by temporarily blocking nerve signals and muscle contractions, which improves the appearance of visible lines and wrinkles. It also helps to slow down the development of new lines, as the contraction of facial muscles is temporarily stopped.
During the procedure, Dr September will administer the Botox with a thin needle. In most cases, between three and five injections will be administered to each area of treatment. The entire procedure is very quick, often taking as little as ten minutes to complete.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
After the Botox procedure is complete, you will need to avoid rubbing and touching the treated area. You should, however, be able to resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
You can expect to see results within a day or two following the Botox procedure. The results typically last up to four months, and additional treatments can help to maintain the results of the procedure.
