Botulinum toxin type-A, better known as Botox, is a product used in aesthetic medicine to correct annoying expression lines in the face. The correction occurs because botulinum toxin temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for these lines. This allows the skin to recover from years of squinting and frowning. Muscle-Relaxing Injections (Botox) prevents and treats expression wrinkles. Such wrinkles are those that appear on the forehead, the glabella (frown or furrow lines) and around the eyes – crow’s feet.
Moreover, Muscle-relaxing injections can improve the face’s contour and lessen neck wrinkles. So, botulinum toxin makes the face and neck look younger and fresher. Other uses are less common, and are best performed by experienced medical experts. Light under-treatment is usually preferred. Over-treatment can result in a diminished expression in the face. There are no permanent risks in healthy individuals. There are several brands of botulinum toxin available. Although they all contain the same amount of “active ingredient” (150kD Botulinum Toxin Type-A neurotoxin), differences do exist between these products.We use only the best products based on the results they give. Full details and the different benefits and outcomes associated with each product will be explained to you in detail during your initial consultation. Often it is down to the results you get as to which brand works best for you. If you are familiar with a specific product then please let us know and we will arrange this for you.
The procedure lasts approximately 10-30 minutes and lasts for 4-6 months. Following anti-wrinkle treatment, it can take 3 to 4 days before you notice an effect and it may take up to 14 days for the toxins to be effective. Treatment will gradually start to wear off after 2 weeks and hence this is the ideal time for a top -up should you feel the effect is not what you had hoped for.
Patients who receive anti-wrinkle treatment at our clinic are entitled to free of charge tops-up between 2-3 weeks after their initial treatment. Patients should contact Gold Angels Aesthetics if they have any concerns.
The above guidelines are based on toxins manufacturers, clinicians and research.
