Commonly Asked Questions
Botox is an anti-wrinkle treatment that relaxes the facial muscles, leading to less lines and a younger appearance. Botox is the brand name given to botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxic protein which is widely used in medicine, cosmetics, and research. Look your best and feel your best with our state-of-the-art anti-wrinkle treatment.
Anti-wrinkle treatments with Botox work just beneath the skin’s surface – targeting specific muscles that create the furrows and lines on your face. They work by temporarily paralyzing or weakening the treated muscles – thus preventing them from contracting and creating furrows. The more relaxed your muscles are, the less lines and wrinkles you’ll have.
This treatment works well on a wide range of patients and is primarily used to reduce the look of deep lines and wrinkles.
Anyone suffering from medical conditions such as damaged nerves or muscular conditions should inform the attending physician during the initial consultation to avoid any complications.
We strongly advise against undergoing any treatment while you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Botox anti-wrinkle treatments are a non-invasive procedure which require no recovery period. You might, however, notice some slight bruising or even swelling in the injected area (due to the needle). Usually the swelling resides within a 15-20 minutes after the treatment is completed.
Results after Botox could take a few days to kick in. In some cases, it may take up to 7-14 days to see full treatment results. Botox results typically last up to three months following the treatment. We suggest repeat treatments regularly to maintain the results.
After injecting the Botox, it can take anywhere from two to eight days to start working. We usually recommend our clients to come in at week 2 or 3 for adjustments, especially if it is their first time treating. Our experience is that at eight weeks, muscle movement will start coming back, and at 12 weeks, the movement should be about 50 percent back to normal. At 16 weeks, the movement will be about 80 percent. It is good to re-treat sometime between three and four months.
You can't wear makeup for about three hours after Botox injections and you may be left with little red spots in the area of injection immediately afterwards. There may be some bruising, though some people have no marks at all when leaving the clinic. Treatments are frequently done during lunch break.
Some patients say it feels like acupuncture, some say the preparation ice hurts more than the needles. Botox in the crows feet (eye wrinkles) hardly hurts at all. Botox in the frown lines is a little bit more painful. Topical anesthetic can be used to numb the skin before hand, but most people don't bother with it. Most people find that the sound of the needle penetrating the skin is the worst part.
