What is Botox?
Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium from which Botox is derived, is found in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, and forests.
The bacterium can also be found in the intestinal tracts of mammals and fish and in the gills and organs of crabs and other shellfish. Such naturally occurring instances of Clostridium botulinumbacteria and spores are generally harmless. Problems only arise when the spores transform into vegetative cells and the cell population increases. At a certain point, the bacteria begin producing botulinum toxin, the deadly neurotoxin responsible for botulism.
Neurotoxins target the nervous system, disrupting the signaling processes that allow neurons to communicate effectively.
How Botox® Works
Botox® is a muscle relaxing injection used by millions around the world to improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, décolletage, tighten the jawline/nefertiti lift and even reduce Hyperhydrosis(excessive sweating). Botox® helps relax muscles that when contracted, create lines and wrinkles. Increasingly, Botox® is being used by younger patients as a preventative wrinkle treatment.
Botox® injections are one of the most affordable, fastest working, safe and effective non-surgical aging treatments available.
Several injections of Botox® are administered into the muscles, reducing wrinkles. Treatment typically takes around 15 minutes.
No anaesthetic is necessary and discomfort is brief and minimal.
Your doctor will give you specific aftercare instructions.
We also recommend a post-treatment appointment to assess the results with a free top-up if necessary after 2 weeks.
Botox® treatments usually take effect after 3-5 days, however it may take 2 weeks for the maximum effect to come.
The effect lasts between 3 to 6 months (average 4 months). Patients who have had several injections often find the effect persists longer. Side effects are uncommon and minimal.
