Botox FAQs

What is Botox?
Botulinum toxin (trade name Botox, Azzalure, Bocouture) is a powerful neurotoxin, which when injected into specific muscles, it temporarily blocks the  nerve signals to that muscle & reduces movement. Today botulinum  toxin has many uses within medicine & anti-aging including the  treatment of muscle spasms, excessive sweating & in facial muscles  to reduce the appearance & onset of lines and wrinkles. Botulinum  toxin is a Prescription Only Medication (POM) & for your own safety, should only be administered by a suitable qualified medical  professional.

Where can Botox be used?
Botox  treatments are often used for the following areas: the forehead, in  between the brows, crows feet, bunny lines, smoker’s lines, chin, brow  lifting, underarms, jawline, gummy smile

How long does Botox take to work?
The effects of Botox can start to appear from the third day following  injection into the specific muscles. It can take 7-14 days for the full  reduction in muscle movement to occur, any reviews or additional  treatment should not be carried out by your qualified medical  practitioner before this in order to reduce the risk of over-treatment  & complications. Botulinum toxin results will vary between  individuals, it may take more than one treatment to gain the desired  results in cases of severe movement, lines or wrinkles.

How long will Botox injections last?
The results from Botox treatments vary between individuals. On a cellular  level, the toxin has completely disappeared from the muscles after 12  weeks. Movement in the muscles will slowly begin to return before this  12 week mark, once completely worn off you can expect all previous  movement, lines and wrinkles to return. Repeat treatments are required  to maintain reduced movement & over time any lines & wrinkles  will become less severe due to the muscle shrinking. Environmental  factors such as exercise & sun exposure may adversely affect the  longevity of Botox treatments.

Do Botox Injections hurt?
Any injections can hurt, however this procedure involves small needles and  is relatively painless. It is possible to apply local anaesthetic cream  or a cold pack to slightly numb the area. There may be some discomfort  once the anaesthetic cream wears off but this will soon pass.

What are the side-effects of Botox injections?
Potential Botox side effects include pain where the injection was made,  infection, inflammation, swelling, redness, bleeding and bruising. It  should be noted that some of these symptoms may indicate an allergic  reaction; other allergy symptoms are itching, wheezing, asthma, a rash,  dizziness and faintness. Tell your doctor immediately if you have any  breathing issues or a faint or dizzy feeling. It is possible for the  Botox to spread a little beyond the intended area and affect other  tissues close by. For example, if you receive Botox treatments into the  forehead close to your eyebrows or your upper eyelids, they could be  affected and may droop temporarily. Our trained practitioners know the  best areas to inject to avoid side-effects such as droopy eyelids.
