Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. This prevents wrinkles forming on the skin. Botox is generally used to get rid of wrinkles around the forehead, between the eyebrows, crows feet (around the eye), neck and around lips. It is also used to lift the tip of the nose, edges of the lips and to lift eyebrows.

Botox is also used to treat excessive sweating around the hands, feet and underarms.

How is Botox applied?

After sterilising the area, using a very fine needle, the doctor will inject the right amount of Botox directly into the targeted facial muscles. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied to your skin to decrease the sensation of the injection.

What are the post treatment instructions after Botox?

You should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, you should refrain from massaging and/or applying too much pressure when removing make up from the treated area. We also recommend to refrain from exercising for 2 days.

 What are the side affects of Botox, if any?

You may have a slight temporary headache after the treatment. In rare cases, some skin types may show resistance to A type toxin which is used in preparation of the substance. In these cases, the treatment will be repeated using B type toxin the second time.
