Non Surgical Treatment
Botox is a purified form of Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTX-A), which when used for cosmetic purposes, reduces expression lines like wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet around the eyes, giving you a more smooth, youthful look. It works by affecting the nerve endings that make the muscles contract. It is a non-invasive treatment that is increasingly being used as an alternative to invasive procedures such as facelifts.
Botox has been used for years to treat facial spasms and muscular disorders in adults, such as uncontrollable blinking and lazy eyes. It is also used to treat excessive sweating from the armpits in adults by paralysing the muscles that cause it.
Several small injections are made to the treatment area by your doctor. The injections are relatively painless and you don’t require an anaesthetic, so you can resume your normal daily activities after the treatment and will be able to drive. A session normally only lasts about ten minutes, so you could even have it done in your lunch break. You will begin to see the results within 3-5 days, but the effects wear off over time so you will need to go back for further treatments about every four months.
