Anti-wrinkle injections commonly referred to as Botox is a medical aesthetic treatment used to minimise fine lines and wrinkles on the face. These injections are usually used for the horizontal forehead lines, the crow’s feet and the frown lines between the eyebrows. Injecting Botox into the relevant muscles in these areas will relax the muscles causing the lines to soften.
Here at Cosmetic Courses we only use products we trust so we use genuine Allergan Botox® to treat our patients to maximise patient safety and satisfaction.
The treatment itself will start with talking through your medical history and discussing your expectations from the treatment. Once this is done, they will mark up the injections points that will be treated. The actual injection of the botulinum toxin will only take about 20 – 30 minutes depending on the area and dose. After treatment you may have some slight redness around the injection points and bruising can occur but is uncommon. On average, the results are seen 10-14 days post treatment and last 12 weeks. At this point you can have your next Botox treatment if full movement of your muscles has returned. If after 14 days you are not happy with your treatment we offer a free of charge review 2-3 weeks post treatment.
This will vary depending on the individual; however Botox will usually last between 3 and 5 months. Once the Botox has worn off, there are no lasting effects and the muscle will return to normal activity. Once you have had 12 weeks since your first appointment you can book for your next treatment with us.
Side effects from Botox are not very common, however mild symptoms may arise. The most common side effects are very slight swelling, bruising and tenderness, and temporary headaches. You should avoid touching the areas treated and also avoid wearing make up for the rest of the day after your treatment. It is also advisable that if possible, you avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for the following 24 hours after the procedure.
When injected into the muscles in your face, Botox will temporarily stop the muscles from contracting, however after 2–4 months you will regain that movement in your muscles as it was before. When administered properly, you should still look natural.
We follow the recommended license guidelines of 12 weeks between treatments. There are certain medical conditions that mean you cannot have treatment and treatment is also not recommended if you are breast feeding or pregnant.
