Commonly known as ‘Botox’ (which is actually just a brand name) We offer a range of botulinum toxin type A injections. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative method but also treats facial wrinkles and/or overactive facial muscles. It provides a safe and effective non- surgical treatment for both men and women to improve the appearance of the skins fine lines and wrinkles most commonly frown lines, crows feet and forehead lines. It can also be used for many other licensed and off license treatments such as helping with migraines, ’ Bruxism’ masseter muscle slimming, excessive sweating, brow lifting and to relax the mentalist muscle for those with strong dimples or mental creases in their chins.
WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The product is produced from a toxin that is derived from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. It is injected in small amounts under the skin, targeting muscles which temporarily restricts their movement. This allows the overlying skin to repair resulting in a smooth – young wrinkle free appearance.
HOW LONG UNTIL YOU CAN SEE THE RESULTS
They are not painful and results can be started to notice as soon as day 2-3. Follow up reviews are done at 2 weeks to achieve great results and patient care. We recommend some things not to do post procedure for 24 hours to ensure that the treatment has full effect.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO DO THIS TREATMENT
At the Medical Clinic, injections can last for several months (3 – 6 months) it does wear off naturally through our metabolism so it will be a continuous treatment.
