What you should know about Botox
Our skin shows more wrinkles and changes as the years go by.
Botox contains a compound that helps prevent wrinkles and expression lines appearing and re-appearing, with results typically showing after 48 or 72 hours.
A typical Botox treatment normally lasts about 7 to 10 months. For this reason, treatment should be repeated after this period.
There are three main areas it can be applied to. These include the forehead, between and around the eyebrows, and also the crow’s feet.
Application of Botox
During the initial consultation, our specialist will listen to your opinion and desires for the treatment. He will recommend the parts of the face where the Botox should be used.
It is not a procedure that requires anesthesia, nor does it require allergy tests. However, a topical numbing cream may be used for your comfort.
