Anti-wrinkle treatment with Botox™ is a medical procedure which should always be performed in a clinical environment by a medical professional. At Medispa S10 your procedure will always be carried out by a highly trained and experienced doctor or nurse prescriber.
Botox™ is used to smooth facial lines and wrinkles. It is traditionally used to treat the upper portion of the face such as the forehead and around the eyes. It can also be used by advanced practitioners to treat other areas of the face such as chin, jaw and neck.
What is it?
Botox™ is a brand name for the naturally occurring protein derived from the plant bacterium called botulinum toxin type A.
How does it work?
The muscle relaxing treatments are very effective at deactivating the nerve cells in the muscles, temporarily preventing their natural contraction. The result is that the skin becomes smoother providing a less lined, more youthful appearance.
What happens during treatment?
You will have a thorough consultation with your medical practitioner to determine which areas will most benefit from treatment. Following this, tiny injections will be placed precisely into the muscles which are causing the lines to form. There is no downtime or disruption to your daily routine.
What results should I expect?
Botox™ typically takes up to ten days before results will be seen, although this will vary from person to person. Lines will appear softer and may gradually disappear over time. Clinical trials have shown that 90% of women and men feel that their lines and wrinkles are reduced one month after treatment.
How long will treatments last?
Botox™ is a simple treatment which usually takes 15 minutes and lasts on average 3-4 months. However many people find results can last for up to 6 months.
Will I require a follow up?
Your nurse or doctor will offer you a 2 week follow up appointment in order to evaluate the result. If necessary a top up treatment will be performed, free of charge.
