What are the benefits of Botox?
BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into the facial muscles to reduce and smooth out frown lines and wrinkles. It works by preventing the muscles from contracting, hence diminishing undesirable facial wrinkles. BOTOX is also used for improving the facial contour such as relaxing the muscles of the jaw and giving the face a natural V-shape jawline.

What can patients expect?
The treatment involves the injection of a purified protein into specific muscles with a very fine needle, which effectively and safely blocks nerve impulses responsible for wrinkles caused by frowning and smiling. , After three to five days contraction of muscles is reduced, and lines and wrinkles appear less severe. The results are temporary, and will usually last around 3 months, before repeat treatment will be required. With regular and prolonged usage, muscles are ‘trained’ to contract less and over time the treated areas will require less frequent Botox injections for a more youthful yet natural appearance.
