What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin. A chemical which temporarily blocks the nerve impulses to muscles. Preventing them from contracting. It is injected as a solution into precise areas on the skin. Over the next two weeks the Botox will take effect. Over 3-6 months your body will clear the botox and the muscle contraction will return.
How is Botox Preventative?
Wrinkles are depressions in the skin. As muscles contract in the face, they shorten. The skin on top falls into the depressions. Over time the skin gets used to this movement and lines begin to appear. if you receive Botox twice a year, for the majority of the year your muscles are not contracting, allowing the skin respite and non-movement. Currently our average age of patients receiving Botox is 28 years.
How long does it last for?
Between 3-6 Months. Around 5% of the population can develop an antibody to BOTOX. The body will become more resistant to BOTOX and results will not last as long as 6 months. However this is only a very small handful of the population

What is the downtime?
After a thorough consultation the procedure is actually very quick. Lasting 2-5 minutes.
There is very mild redness from the injection point and some bumps in the skin from where the solution of botox is.
This normally settles within 10 minutes. A few of our clients come in on their lunch break, given the relatively low downtime Period. Results will kick in at around day 2-3. Final result is 2 weeks post injection. A top up may be required. This is completely FREE and included in the price you pay.
